Shenanigans are loose fit boxer shorts made of colorful West African wax prints. Shenanigan wants to provide men (and women) with unique underwear and at the same time it is experimenting with a fair production proces. In a world where many fashion brands do not take responsability for labour ethics, we make a point of knowing our suppliers and tailors on a first name basis and we share the profit we make with them. So a shenanigan does not only look good, it is good!
Our inspiration for Shenanigan comes from modern West African culture. The streets of Dakar are full of proud and very fashionaware young men and woman. They show a keen ability of mixing global fashion trends with West African tradition and a Senegalese metropolitan street culture. It is colorful, divers, elegant and irresistable.
Shenanigans are initiated in The Netherlands by a fashion professional and three Human Geography students, all sharing a love for African culture and textiles. Right now the boxershorts are available in five shops. Find your nearest shop here.
