Briefs, Boxer Briefs, Boxers... easy to get confused!
These are the foundations of your wardrobe. Here’s a quick compendium of the style staples the modern gentleman needs to complete his psychological implications of underwear:
The Old-Fashioned Original
Also referred to as Tighty-whiteys, Brighteys if you opt for color, Jockey Shorts or simply Jockeys (...) keep everything under control. Simple and supportive, they’re minimalism at its best.
Prevents dangling. Won’t bunch up under pants. Shows off a six-pack.
The Easy Classic
Typically made of woven shirting fabric, they’re often considered the straight-guy’s go-to. While often worn by traditionalists, it’s also the most freestyle with the roomiest cut.
Looks good if you’re a little out of shape. Keeps you ventilated. Front fly is easy to use. Socially acceptable as loungewear.
The Sporty Standard
Like the name says, it’s a cross between boxers and briefs. Longer in length than trunks, but with a similar streamlined silhouette that keeps you from movin’ and shakin’ too much.
A versatile style. Provides some support for athletic activity. Not so skimpy. Has a sporty spin.
The New Hybrid
Shorter than a boxer brief, but longer than a brief. Just think “truncated” to remember the length. A best-of-both-worlds style that provides a bit more coverage but still keeps everything in its place.
The wear-anywhere style goes under pretty much everything and works for every body type. Won’t ride up under pants. Has a modern vibe.
