The perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day or any other day!
The first boxer short we ever made back in 2015 was called “BEREND” named after one of our staff named Berend Boksma. His full name is “Berend Valentinus Boksma” because Valentine’s Day (Feb 14th) is actually his birthday. As the BEREND boxer displays a pigeon or dove and because we also made a version with a Raven, we decided to go full circle and combine the two in a 2-pack called “VALENTIJN”.
Our spirit animal, our totem, is the pigeon or dove. It stands for freedom and peace and for a certain mentality one can find among these birds in cities such as Amsterdam. On Dam square they face fierce competition from seagulls, crows and other birds. Some of them are bigger and stronger, some of them are smaller and faster. Yet these "flying rats" manage to survive and thrive in big cities, often at beautiful places with statues and monuments where people flock together as they do. What makes the pigeon or dove (nobody really knows the difference) unique is their ability to always find their way back home. For us, home is Amsterdam. But! to quote Douwe Bob (Douwe is Frisian for Dove): "Amsterdam is a metafor for coming home". The boxer short 2-pack is also available as CAROLUS, with multicolor and blue tulips from Amsterdam!
This 2-pack contains one DUIJFF (old Dutch for Dove or Pigeon) in blue and one RAAF (Dutch for Raven) in black, making this a black & blue 2-pack.
