A few weeks ago a mother sent Lucky & Me an email to say thank you for providing boys’ boxer briefs which her picky son will wear. We wanted to learn more so we asked her to give an interview. Here is Cristina’s story:
When her son was born, he became very ill. Ultimately he was diagnosed with an immune system problem and it took several years to find the right approach to resolve this issue. Cristina said, “He’s been through the wringer with his immune system.” Consequently, her son is extremely sensitive to the way things feel and even look– and is particularly picky about his clothing. He even considers the hole typically found in briefs and boxers to be a defect and would say that his undies were broken.
Cristina bought many brands of boys’ underwear to find an acceptable style, eventually trying Diesel brand– which her son liked, but Diesel stopped making his favorite style. She tried Calvin Klein, but found the elastic unraveled after several wash cycles. Then her quest for boys’ boxer briefs led her to Lucky & Me– the perfect blend of comfortable fabric and grown-up styling and without the hole! Her son loves them and will not wear any other brand of underwear.
While we were on the phone together, he came into the room after his bath and asked to put on his Lucky & Me boxer briefs. Cristina says, “I really, really appreciate your clothes and what you are doing. I’ve told all my girlfriends and they know when I say, ‘This is it– this is a good product.’ They can really count on it because I’ve done my homework.”
It is very gratifying for Lucky & Me to hear testimonials from customers like Cristina because it validates all the time and effort the brand puts into developing kid-friendly fabrics while creating appealing style and color choices for girls and boys.
