A luxurious by-product of our renowned bespoke shirt service is piles of beautiful cotton in hundreds of different colours and patterns. Rather than see this high quality 'wastage' go to waste we developed the idea of making the most comfortable and luxurious boxer shorts one could imagine. It was here that we met a stumbling block. The remnant pieces of cloth we were collecting were in funny little shapes and not a single English manufacturer was interested as they wanted one long piece of cotton to be machine cut. Enter Rachel. Rachel, a York-based dressmaker and mum of two, was introduced to us and after having approved the patterns she has not looked back. Rachel has a degree in textiles and 25 years sewing experience.
Each pair of Mullen & Mullen boxers takes Rachel one hour and fifteen minutes to make and are cut and sewn entirely by hand.
No two pairs are the same, we just keep delivering the cloth and Rachel keeps sewing.
