For more than 100 years, Munsingwear has been an icon in the men's underwear arena. It was first called the Northwestern Knitting Company, and was founded in Minneapolis in 1886. During the Gold Rush years, when fortune hunters flooded west, these pioneers needed warm layers to keep them comfortable in frigid weather, so the union suit was invented by Munsingwear to answer the need. The one-piece "long john" became most-wanted men's underwear.
By 1919, Munsingwear became an established brand name and began developing other products at their plant in Rogers, Minnesota. In 1956, two hundred employees began making an innovative new underwear style called "the brief." Its front had a horizontal fly opening which was dubbed "the kangaroo pouch," a design that became popular and is so enduringly functional that it is still a customer favorite today.
Every Munsingwear underwear style can be counted on for superior quality. T-shirts, briefs, boxer briefs and thermal base layer underwear (including long johns) offer the everyday soft comfort and durability of preshrunk cotton, with plush-back lined waistbands on the underwear bottoms, all with the iconic kangaroo pouch front.
