Hi There!

In Dec 2014 Bendon lost the license to Sell McPherson mens underwear and I subsequently went looking for replacements and didn't find anything I liked as much. 

I can't find McPherson mens anywhere any more, no in Aussie even. 

Anyone know how I can find out what happened to the brand? Who has the rights and who the retailers are?

Thanks, I actually found those exact brand on the Bendon site with a similar model number, looks identical. 

My GoogleFU initially failed me.

I wonder how it works if McPherson is the brand, for them to pop up with the same exact underwear under a different name. Was Bendon the Manafacturer and McPherson just the front for it? I would have thought McPherson was the manufacturer and Bendon it's sales outlet.

I don't like the look of the Klum ones as much either, they've changed the style a bit, looks less comfortable. Got a link to where you found the old ones available overseas?

I
 really like them, they look almost identical other than the HK on the front. 

I have yet to find something close to as good anywhere in any brand at any price. 

When they closed down I bought like 15 pairs
