Pomono is a direct-to-consumer underwear start-up that aims to save you time and money. By circumventing traditional outlets, designing underwear in-house and communicating with customers directly, the company has been able to deliver a premium experience at a better price. The kicker is thaqt Nguyen's company also delivers underwear to those less fortunate.
Underwear is the most requested item at homeless shelters; health and safety issues prevent shelters from sanitarily providing used undergarments to the neediest. Pomono plans to alleviate this by donating a pair of underwear every time a pair of Pomono underwear is sold.
With the success of their recent Kickstarter campaign, Pomono is set to start their giving plan in New York City, Nguyen's hometown, and then then expand outward to the rest of the U.S. and beyond.
Its debut collection consist of one style of boxer briefs in four colors and four different sizes, from small to extra-large. Pomono boxers are the perfect blend of simplicity and comfort. All pairs feature a blend of cotton, modal, and elastic. The combination of the three fabrics offers a lightweight, breathable, and extremely durable fabric built to last longer than the boxers you currently own.
Pomono's mission is simple: Save time; save money; do good. If you're interested in trying Pomono, the company is offering a free trial—just pay $5 for shipping! If you're feeling Pomono's underwear and you want to order another pair, you'll get $5 off your order. You can't really beat that.
But wait… there's more! Cyber Monday is here, and that means that Pomono is giving you another reason to reup your drawers. Get 10% your order AND free shipping by using fov10 at checkout.
Here're some videos of Van Nguyen from back in the day:
Parts 1-5 of an epic cross-country trip that a busload of Brooklyn skaters took to The (old) Berrics. Van's enduring love affair with Domino's Pizza is in full effect. (To this day we're not sure if he's just got a bone to pick with Pizza Hut.)
