VOLT BOXER BRIEF 2-PACK
Kids gone crazy in the food court. Our in-house SAXX designer Chris came up with this mash-up mess of a print, packed with photo-real imagery and hand-illustrated comic-book styled explosions and pop art dot matrix patterns. This is a perfect example of Chris in his design comfort zone – a little weird, a little surreal, and all fun. Bright, frenetic and out of control, this Volt print may just jump right out of your pants!Buy Now

Ultra & Oh Buoy
This print was a group effort! Inspired by a team trip to the spectacular Broad Museum in LA, creative director Kathleen came back completely stoked about Takashi Murakami – the infamous Japanese artist, known for his happy flowers, trippy outsized paintings and sculptures, and for being like the OG of collabs.
Murakami’s works are huge, mural-scaled paintings with a crazy amount of detail. So, we dove in and got closer and closer, finding patterns within patterns within the paintings. This directed a new camouflage concept that SAXX designer Patty painted…wavy, banded layers of multi-colored painterly camo patterns. We named the print Mura Kamo to celebrate Takashi’s inspiration!
VOLT BOXER BRIEF
Hockey is a must-have for any homegrown Canadian company like SAXX! Our in-house powerhouse Patty designed this this cool AF hockey print - Keep Off Glass. Using her massive photoshop skills and fine art eye, she crafted an icy translucent collage, layering on photographic elements pulled from the rink. Notice her strategically-placed warning sign on the backside of these boxer briefs…Buy Now
VOLT BOXER BRIEF 2-PACK
Bad Santas was designed by one of our go-to freelance artists, Zach. Now, pay attention, this print deserves some serious thought. There are 8 bad Santas in all, each one modeled after a well-known movie-version of Mr. Claus. Keep a close eye out for each arrest location. This’ll help you determine which movie each Santa hails from. But that’s not all. When possible, Zach modeled the mugshot sign after what was used by the fiction police departments. The plot thickens: the police number for each Santa is actually the actor’s birthday. We challenge you to figure out all 8. Good luck!Buy Now
Daytripper Boxer Brief & Snooze Pant
These waters are holi-dangerous! Riffing off the movie classic, SAXX designer Marty jumped off the deep end with Jingle Jaws. She used her signature clean-and-graphic style, along with her tongue-in-cheek attitude to design this sea full of great whites getting after the Christmas booty. We love this print so much it shows up twice – in Day Tripper as a wavy stripe, and then simplified and scaled down for our Snooze Pant in Sleep. Catch ‘em while you can!Buy Now
Brett Stenson is an illustrator, designer and multi-disciplinary artist living in Portland, Oregon. His work is inspired directly by the natural world, and our place in it.
As he puts it: ”I pull from the primordial rhythms in nature and primitive art from around the world and filter through the lens of my own imagination. By simplifying complex features and intangible feelings in nature, I hope to filter our collective experiences outdoors in a cerebral, colorful and rudimentary way.”
Brett works in a very sincere and recognizable manner – and expresses his talents thru painting, screen printing and woodworking. And he is a massive fan of the outdoors – hiking, biking, fishing – summer, fall winter and spring. He is the real deal, and just a really good dude.
Fish are Fly.
QUEST BOXER BRIEF
This is a custom print Brett designed for our Plastic Bank give-back campaign. We will be hooking-up with Plastic Bank once again to help prevent ocean plastic while supporting collector communities around the world. This print is a great example of Brett’s artistic look and vibe – a bold yet naïve pattern reflecting the great outdoors and the beautiful creatures in it. A reminder we need to protect their watery wilderness.Buy Now
