MAD Projects Industries has stripped down Levi's Basics to a bare minimum. Undergarments are packaged multi-functionally with a universal substrate of wood. The boxer Brief is pouched in kraft paper, slipped into a cardboard box and embellished with a polka-dotted match-strike. The "Truck" is stored in a tray box, printed with wood grain and finished with the garment logo. Finally, rediscovered Long Socks of Mr. Strauss are "hipsterified" and tucked inside a mason jar with a bonus needle and thread.
"To launch Levi’s Basics, the brand’s new line of men’s socks, t-shirts and underwear, Mad Projects (the licensee behind the brand) knew they had to think outside of the traditional 3-pack of briefs. With a product that stands out for its traditional denim elements, they wanted a package that was both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Each package of the 3 Series line is designed to be a keepsake, a memento and used for more than just holding boxers on store shelves."
"The 200 series box is designed as a working match strike. The 300 series is a resealable Tyvek bag, perfect for keeping coffee grounds fresh. And the 400 series is made of authentic wood paneling."
