Today the greatest change in men’s underwear over the years has been its fabrics, and now there are loads of styles available in market made in polyester, cotton or silk blends. Traditional briefs were once marked by a prominent elastic waistband which sits at the waist, a Y-shaped front fly, about four inches of cloth which covers everything from upper thighs to waist and full coverage of the butt. Mid-rise briefs are the same in every way, but they sit two inches below the waist at the belly button.
Low-rise briefs rest about three inches below the waist, both of these styles goes well with low-rise jeans. All briefs gives awesome support to the genitals and they’re a best choice for jobs which require sitting down all day and as you would know briefs are less likely to ride up than other types of underwear or for physical activities. Most fully cut briefs are inexpensive and white cotton. Low-rise and mid-rise cuts come in all kinds of colors and in better materials such as silk.
In many ways and for many people, today boxer shorts are the ‘classic’ men’s underwear and women adore them! Boxers are considered to be loose, arguably the very comfortable. These boxer shorts have straight-cut leg openings and cover part of the thighs and the entirely your rear side; the length might vary from 8 to sixteen inches. Tapered boxers are very similar to the traditional cousins, with an exception that it has leg openings that fit into the thighs, with side vents providing more freedom to move around. Fly fronts are not standard on tapered boxers, but a front cup panel offers some support.
Boxers go really well with suits and with other loose fitting pants like cargoes and khakis. Interestingly, boxers are the only kind of men’s underwear which can be tailored. Boxers do tend to bunch up sometimes, however they give precious little genital support. Boxers are a poor choice when it comes to physical activities and the good news is that boxers are known for their versatile designs and patterns. Solids, plaids and themed styles are all available in different fabrics such as cotton and wool.
And now here is a popular kind of men’s underwear, especially with women, who find them extraordinarily sexy! As the name says, boxer briefs are middle ground between boxers and briefs. The underwear has a cut like tapered boxers, but it fits tightly, just like briefs. Boxer briefs have great advantages; for instance they give coverage and support in a way which sculpts the lower trunk also. This kind of underwear works under with all kinds of clothes, but is especially valuable during athletic activities and under tighter pants.
Dark-colored boxer briefs look especially good when you have a little extra ‘weight’ to hide; the dark colors give the shorts’ slimming abilities. A good boxer briefs can be found in cotton and spandex. If you are ready to spend a little extra, then go for those made from spandex and Tencel blend; they will last longer and fit much better.
