Last month we visited for the second time the Salon International de la Lingerie in Paris. We had the chance to speak with quite a few, new and well established men’s underwear brands, and we have scheduled a series of posts with what we have seen, which ones we liked the most and would recommend you to try.
We will start with a brand that was established in 1920 in Spain. A long history of male undergarments creation and one of the most well established Spanish underwear brands, ZD – Zero Defects. The brand prides itself for being 100% made in Spain by keeping all the stages from design to distribution in the country and despite the current, tough, financial climate to grow stronger every year. Their garments are characterised by their exceptional softness, custom fit and great comfort.
One of many things that created a fantastic impression to us when meeting with the brand in Paris was the outstanding materials of the underwear. In the collection of ZD you will find items made of Egyptian cotton, mercerised cotton and even fabrics with soya yarns. The fact that the brand is so careful on the material it uses for its garments is shown by the structure of their collection. For 2015, Zero Defects’ collection comprises four distinctive ranges: Stretch Egyptian Cotton, Soya Yarn, Mercerized Cotton and Giza Cotton. Expect a full range, from briefs to biker’s long boxers and almost everything in between, some sporty, some classic and some modern, all in masculine colours with shades of dark blue, off whites, greys, classic white and black among others.
We went though literally every item of their new collection at the Salon and we must thank the representative of Zero Defects for sharing their passion and expertise with us.
If you haven’t tried them yet, we strongly recommend you do. There is a huge range of cuts and an astonishing range of sizes (from small to seven extra large) to accommodate every man.
