SEAMLESS WAISTBAND

Seamless waistbands are a relatively recent innovation for men’s underwear as they are maid possible through the use of engineered fabrics and updated manufacturing technichqes. Machines that knit the fabric are able to create a single garment out of a stretch microfiber that is without seams. Typically the waistband is knitted to be thicker and slighter tighter than the main body of the garment in order to enhance function and fit. Seamless underwear waistbands are typically relatively understated in their design with the manufacturer’s logo being the most common visual element.

Seamless waistbands have the benefit of being smooth and do not cause any noticeable lines under clothing. Despite the many benefits of seamless waistbands there are still only a small handful of designers/labels that offer completely seamless underwear.

Pros: Soft, flexible, light-weight, minimal lines under clothing and integrated manufacturing process means less components to wear out over time.

Cons: More difficult to integrate complex patterns and designs, not as strong as dedicated elastic, can be more prone to "rolling" down the waist.
