There is never a bad time to buy underwear. Unlike puffer coats and swimsuits, underwear has no peak season. And if you’re anything like me, you tend to replace yours on a rolling basis. So whenever a particularly good pair of patterned boxers like these from J.Crew go on sale, it’s a good idea to stock up. Now deeply discounted in a handful of patterns, from a red-and-white candy stripe to a very madras-y multicolored plaid, these soft cotton boxer shorts are just 15 bucks plus an additional 30 percent off when you enter code SHOPSALE at checkout.
And even folks who prefer boxer briefs or other styles of undies can get in on the action. I for one am considering following former Strategist writer Chloe Anello’s lead and buying a pair to wear around the house or out in public as comfy dog-walking shorts. For just a smidge over $10, there’s really nothing to lose.
