Welcome to Oiler & Boiler’s version of Tuckernuck Island
Welcome to Tuckernuck Island: the home of Oiler & Boiler. Allow UnderU to transport you to the far corners of the world with our review of Oiler & Boiler’s new Spring/Summer fashion collection for 2014.
This season’s range has taken its influence from the corners of the world; taking inspiration from the signature colours and themes native to each country. The main feature is the Caribbean print which can be seen throughout the underwear and swimwear ranges. This is a beautifully intricate hand drawn interpretation of tropical leaves and foliage – the perfect print for summer!
As well as Oiler & Boiler’s Classic plain swim shorts which are made from a quick-dry, peach-feel fabric, we are now offering these in a shorter length – a more modern, cheekier take on an old classic!! Oiler&Boiler’s best selling ‘East Hampton swim shorts’ have also experienced a welcome comeback; this season developed in the vivid colours of hot pink and grass green, reflective of the tropical them to the range. The evolution of this style can be seen in the introduction of the ‘West Coast swim short’ which takes it’s shape from the ‘East Hampton’ but has a unique, bold stripe styling down the side for a distinctive retro feel.
Watch out for a few new shapes for this season in the form of the ‘New England Swim Short’ and the ‘Massachusetts swim trunk’. The ‘New England’ swim short is vintage, sport luxe inspired and made from a lightweight parachute type fabric for an effortlessly chic and sophisticated look. At the opposite end of the scale, the ‘Massachusetts’ style is not for the faint hearted! This is a unique athletic fit shape, not quite a brief and not as much coverage as a trunk, it’s somewhere in between. We’ve offered this in a bright Baywatch red and an eye catching retro print – we say if you’re brave enough, go bold!
The beauty of Oiler & Boiler is that their themes and colours are carried through across all of their categories. So the same signature Carribbean print seen in the swimwear is also offered in a range of boxer shorts and trunks in underwear. For a more conservative option however, Oiler & Boiler often play on their beach heritage creating a nautical theme to run parallel. This can be seen in the classic navy and white colours with delicate stripes with hints of red and green offered in our 4 pack boxer trunks of Oiler & Boiler underwear:
Oiler & Boiler is fast establishing itself as both a key player and a breath of fresh air in the underwear and swimwear market. Offering classic and preppy hand drawn prints and simple, stylish plains with their philosophy of producing quality products at refreshingly affordable prices.
