Since not everyone is a spelling bee champion, there have been multiple different attempts at spelling the word “underwear” when our customers have been looking to buy a great pair of Skiviez. Perhaps you’ve been searching for “underware.” Sounds right when you say it out loud, and it’s just another example of how the English language can cause a person to want to pull his hair out at times.
Or maybe you thought it was two words. “Under wear” doesn’t seem like such an off-base attempt.
For all of the spelling aficionados out there who have been wondering why Skiviez is spelled the way it is, there is a very simple explanation: why be ordinary when you can be extraordinary? Skiviez is a unique spelling for a unique and modern company. Skivvies? While technically it is spelled correctly, it is not memorable. Skivies? A small misspelling, but a big bore.
Besides, there is a lot to be said for spelling things phonetically. 2xist, for example, doesn’t waste any time or energy with the spelling of their hip name, and the logo looks much better on waistbands than “to exist” would. Go ahead – sound it out. “Sss…kih…veez.” I don’t hear an “s” sound at the end of that word.
When all is said and done, however, it doesn’t matter how you spell greatness – skivies, skivvies, or skiviez – Skiviez is the only place you’re going to be able to find the great selection, customer service, and prices that you’ve come to expect.
