Giving Back

AKIN Essentials. Look good. Do good.

Check out our 'Buy a Pair, Give a Pair' initiative to help the homeless in the UK live with dignity. We believe that everybody has the right to live with dignity. Used clothes are donated to charities all the time, but, for obvious reasons, not underwear. This has led to a huge number of homeless and underprivileged people without access to this most basic dignity.

And for that very reason we have pledged to donate a pair of brand-new boxers to someone in need for every subscription pair of underwear we sell! In partnership with Smalls For All a fantastic charity that distributes underwear to those who need it in the UK and in Africa.

Ethical Sourcing

To reduce our carbon footprint, we chose to source from Turkey, due to its chose proximity to Europe. We ensure the workers in the fields of Izmir are paid a fair living wage and are employed in award-winning working conditions. 

We are supporting the Turkish government's initiative to improve the livelihood and working condition of the people from the south-eastern part of the country.
The cotton sourced from Turkey to make our briefs are GMO certified and the cotton used to make our briefs is completely organic, we do not use any pesticides or plastic in our entire supply chain.

Be a part of our journey!

A special thank you to everyone that's subscribed to our initiative! with your help we have donated 800 pairs over the last year!

This was our first donation to Smalls For All last July, over the last few months we were able to make a couple more donations, making a lot of people happy!
Along with new pairs of sustainable and eco-friendly underwear, we've also been able to make cash donations to our partnered charity. 

This November we support Movember

November's here and this month we are raising awareness on the alarmingly high rate of suicide among men, prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. 
Every subscription you make this month we will be donating £1 to the Movember campaign, alongside a pair of boxers to charity.

Too many men are ‘toughing it out’ and the rate of men’s suicide is alarmingly high. Among other aims, Movember is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030.

You can do your bit to help, and bag yourself a pair of the comfiest boxers you’ll ever wear at the same time.
