Two Assorted Madras Silk Boxers by Royal Silk - S (30-32") - 100% Silk
In many Southeast and Far East Asian countries, where the weather is hot and humid, and long before the Western idea of shorts was invented, men typically wore colorful wraps tied around the waist. In fact, you can still find them in coastal lands stretching all the way from the Horn of Africa to the isle of Bali. The traditional patterns were yarn-dyed solids, tartans, and plaids, and sometimes stripes of every variety, shape, and color that were originally woven on hand-looms, and later on power looms. The artisan wraps, also known as lungis and dhotis, are so popular that men use them for formal, informal, casual, cultural, and ceremonial wear. Most often the wraps were made in lightweight cottons but the finest ones were made in silk. And the best of these yarn-dyed silk designs were crafted in the south of India, in the state of Tamil Nadu, around the city of Chennai, formerly know as Madras. And that is where Madras Silk by Royal Silk still comes from. Washable. Sizes S (30-32"), M (33-34"), L (35-36"), XL (37-38"), and XXL (39-40").

Pure silk boxer shortsNov 10, 2008
By Barbara A. Jools
The product was exactly as advertised, and I received prompt service. I would like to make a comment re the manufacture of the product to make the boxer shorts more acceptable for other buyers in the future, and I hope you take my constructive criticism on board. The elastic is too tight for the medium size range. There is heaps of material in the boxer shorts, and they are well made, but why is it that things made in Chinese factories always stint on the waist elastic, and consequently spoil a really good product. No one wants to have whelts around the waist after wearing tight elastic for a whole day! Unfortunately I can't unpick it either as it is sewn into the pant so thoroughly, it would take me a year to undo it, and thread more elastic through. The problem is that I now have three pair of wonderful silk boxer shorts for my husband, and he can't wear them! ...so they are a waste. This problem wasn't anticipated, but now it makes me less inclined to buy thing sight unseen over the internet. Yours most sincerely...Barbara Jools, Sydney
PS..My darling husband is a paraplegic, and spends his every waking moment in a wheelchair, hence the importance of non restrictive undies that don't cut into his tummy.

not happyJan 09, 2011
By Debra Elerath
I ordered these boxers for my husband. He had one other pair of silk boxers that we both loved. So, I wanted to order some more. The price seemed right for these, but there is an old saying about you get what you paid for. The patterns on these are pretty awful. Solid would be better. But, they just don't feel like silk. Also, you can't see the back when you are ordering, but it has that extra seam back there. I've seen that on boxers and just don't get it. Why does anyone need that? It gets all bunched up under jeans. Anyway, my advice is spend a few more bucks and go somewhere else to buy something nice. Don't waste your money.

the colors are nice, the size is correct, the price is average
my husband was a bit disappointed because the boxes are not soft and pliable. they have a bit of a stiffness to the fabric so they werent as comfortable as he had hoped for
