When it comes to menswear, underwear is one component that’s rarely discussed.
With the range of choices now available for men, picking a pair isn’t as simple as it used to be. However, it’s important to weigh up the different options available and select underwear that matches your needs and lifestyle.
Classic briefs are renowned for being the most conventional and comfortable of all the different options. Briefs come in variations including low-cut and mid-cut.
Boxer shorts were inspired by real boxers. They extend a few inches above the knee, have a front fly, and are ideal for lounging around and relaxing in comfort.
Boxer briefs are a variation of actual boxer shorts and standard briefs. With the appearance of bike shorts, boxer briefs fit in a similar way to conventional briefs but look more like boxer shorts.
Modern trunks have a tighter fit than traditional boxer shorts. Trunks also tend to be a little shorter than boxers and they have smaller inseams.
Bikini-style underwear features broader straps than a female bikini bottom, and provides decent coverage at the back. However, there isn’t much support at the front and this style is not for everyone.
