About Us

Our Story 

Our founder James Brewin launched Akin Essentials in 2021 with a brilliant idea to launch a line of sustainably sourced, ethically made and eco-friendly men's underwear.

Since our launch we've been able to build a small base of subscribers and one-off customers from the UK, US, Europe and across the globe!

By keeping our range small, we've been focussing on providing the best quality of men's boxers as well as reduce the waste that ends up in landfills by ensuring our business cycle follows the motto of 'slow fashion'.

Our boxer briefs are produced using the finest Aegean organic cotton, ethically and sustainably manufactured, and delivered straight to your door. All with the signature black AKIN waistband.

We believe that no one should have to live without underwear, so for every subscription pair sold, we will donate a pair to someone in need through our charity partners Smalls for All.

So you can wear beautifully designed, ethically manufactured, premium organic cotton underwear and help others - without ever having to think about buying new boxers.

Give yourself the gift of enduring style. Designed in London. Sustainably produced in Turkey. Delivered to you, every month.

Our Philosophy 

We want our customers to experience the comfort of good underwear and happy smiles all while being able to give back to their community with every purchase we make.

Our founder James, believes in complete transparency and does not condone corporate greenwashing, as a brand we aim to be completely transparent and use only the finest, most sustainable and ethically sourced materials for our products and our packaging.

AKIN Essentials. Look good. Do good.
