General Information

From Norway. Mesh Underwear.

The Norwegian army commandant Henrik Brun won himself a place in history as the inventor of mesh underwear: In 1933 he sewed together his first set from worn-out fishing nets and then presented them to the assembled officers' club - including King Håkon VII. The spontaneous reaction of this select group has not been recorded, but Brun's idea must have caught on because the manufacturer Brynje from Larvik has been supplying all units of the Norwegian army since 1950. Today the shirts are made of long staple cotton and are manufactured for Brynje in Poland. Civilians, too, have learned to appreciate the advantages of this type of underwear, which keeps you warm, thanks to the thin layer of air trapped in the mesh, yet prevents a build-up of heat and can barely be felt on the skin. Of course, there are the people who can't be helped: they maintain that the mesh underwear is more appropriate for pigeon or rabbit breeders. And if miners appreciate the qualities of these clothes when underground, it's no wonder they wear them in their time off, too, – which should be looked upon as a compliment. We offer the Norwegian original, machine washable at 85°C.
