With thanks for the tip to Pinko Mag (I was turned onto it, er, you know…by my Google Alert for “Alice Waters,” ..really I promise).

Update: Pinko Mag has just put together the best-yet best and worst organic underwear for men yet…this is an essential click for eco men everywhere (and the women, or men, who buy their undies for ’em). Features American Apparel (my underwear of choice), others.

Organic Underwear for Men. At last.

Who wants chemical residue (you know that weird, stale new-tee shirt smell) and toxic dyes getting all cozy around your crotch, anyways? These organic undies might just be the ticket, gentlemen…though I’m not sure if they used conventional bleach to get ’em so nice n’white. Ah, just read the fine print (find the typo, below), and glad to give ’em two thumbs up, though of course we haven’t actually reviewed ’em yet:

Introducing Red Dog Sportswear “Eco-Sport” boxer briefs, trunks, sport briefs and tee for eco-conscience men. Our products are made with SKAL certified organic cotton (exclusive of trim). They are extremely soft and comfortable because they are made from cotton that is grown without chemicals or pesticides. Low impact, eco-friendly dyes were used for product color. Feel the difference.

    I actually own some of their boxer briefs and all I can say is "your balls" will thank you for it. Softest damn undies I've ever worn. I didn't think "organic" would make a difference… I was wrong.
