Still going with boxer briefs. Tighty-whities (and their colored variants) can look okay if you have the thighs for them, but their short length can make a lot of guys with less than Olympian legs look like overgrown kids (especially if they have the cutesy colored ones) or like old grandpas if they're too big.%0D %0D Boxers are also fine, and their length looks better on most guys' legs, but their bagginess isn't particularly flattering, and comfort wise you flop around in your pants as if you aren't wearing underwear at all.%0D %0D Boxer briefs are a nice compromise - you get the support of a brief, but the length of boxers which are more flattering to the legs, and a tight fit which is flattering to the ass.

I have worn the lot: big comfy tighty-whities up to my mid-teens; coloured briefs for the last 2 years of school; bikini briefs at university; weenie little tanga briefs at law school; big baggy boxer shorts made from woven cotton for my 2 years as a trainee lawyer; silk boxers for the next 2 years; tight stretchy cotton-Lycra cycle short-style ones for 2 or 3 years after that; then Calvin Klein knitted boxer briefs.

For the last 3 or 4 years the legs of boxer briefs have got shorter every year, until now I wear white cotton designer trunks, with tiny little vestigial legs. It has just occurred to me that basically I am wearing the same big comfy big briefs that i started with, only now they are 30 times the price.

R38 - here's how men pee:

Unbutton top button of pants, unzip zipper, pull down front of underwear, fish out your junk, pee, put it back in and reverse the steps. Works the same for briefs, boxers, boxer-briefs, etc.

The stupid all-the-rage "button-fly" jeans had some of us trying to just unbotton a couple of fly buttons to pee, but it just doesn't work well.

The flap of a man's standard white brief is almost never used to take out the penis - I'm not sure why they're there. I can't say 100% of men don't use it - I have seen a handful in my day.

The flap is basically a male pee pad - to soak up the dribblets so it doesn't get on your leg or pants. About 25 years ago there was a marketing ploy to sell more expensive boxers over briefs. People started making fun of briefs and it became a standard stand-up joke for women to ask what kind of underwear a man wears and then to "ewww" at briefs.

People who make fun of the brief don't take the sanitation into consideration. That's why boxers are fucking disgusting, because pee will drip down your leg and on your clothes. And fellow men, don't tell me it doesn't because I've been there and every man I've talked to about it has the same experience.

Hence the boxer-brief was supposed to be this middle-ground in the 90's - but they're not that comfortable really.

by Anonymousreply 4304/24/2011

R43. Great post. The last couple of pee drips down your leg are in fact a reality when wearing boxers. Also, boxers don't absorb those last couple of pee drops the way briefs do. I would disagree with you that I don't think boxer briefs were invented as a compromise for pee drips between briefs and boxers. But perhaps you were implying the boxer briefs just came about as a hybrid between briefs and boxers. I actually like boxer briefs and feel they're quite comfortable.%0D %0D But all-in-all, I enjoyed your post. Underwear just became more of a fashion statement in the past generation, which is why there are so many options now. The bottom line is that I believe briefs still have the edge in popularity.

by Anonymousreply 4404/24/2011

R44 - Yep - I meant that the boxer brief came out of a middle ground b/w boxers and briefs and not because of the need for a pee pad.

I would contend that briefs have a HUGE margin over boxers or boxer briefs in everyday life. If you stripped down a 100 guys in the office, I'd say 70 percent have briefs. Most guys at the gym wear briefs.

However, on date night - those numbers would change.

Lastly - briefs in this day and age are not like the high-waisted, huge white briefs of yesteryear.

by Anonymousreply 4504/24/2011

R45. Yep, for all the hoopla about underwear, briefs have it, mainly because as young boys we all wear breifs, and it's difficult to break the habit and comfortable feel when we're older. And briefs keep you snug for everyday wear.%0D %0D But, funny you should mention dating. On those nights, I skip my briefs and boxers and put on my boxer briefs. Boxer briefs also look good after sex when leaving to go home that night or hanging around the house with each other the morning after.

I don't have a preference as to briefs, boxers, or boxer briefs. I own all three kinds and it depends on my mood, but usually it's boxers in warm weather and briefs/boxer briefs in colder weather.

What makes me roll my eyes are what I call "fashion man-panties." Anything with wild colors or patterns, or anything with a label and is way overpriced.

I'd rather see a pair of cheap tighty whities or Hanes boxer briefs on a guy than that girly high fashion crap.

Oh. Thanks, r43. That's like our underwear, that has more padding where our who-ha is. I thought most men dabbed their heads with toilet paper after peeing?

Also, why isn't privacy taken into consideration for mens' bathrooms, i.e. urinals? I know there are some with partitions on each side, but most don't have them, do they? Is it because you guys just don't care?

by Anonymousreply 6204/15/2012

For some reason, tighty whities are associated with being uncool and less masculine than boxers or boxer briefs. Since guys usually wear tighty whities or underoos as kids, guys who wear them past a certain age (usually puberty) are viewed as being uncool and still little boys rather than young men. Not too long ago, almost every guy wore tighty whities growing up from childhood and into their adult lives. Back then guys weren't picked on for wearing them either. The jocks and all the popular guys wore them and had no problem with other dudes seeing them in their white briefs. The guys didn't rely on underwear selection to determine who was cooler or more masculine, they used their actions and athletic achievements do that for them. . Then something happened and suddenly guys who wore tighty whities were the target of locker room teasing and in an effort to avoid that, guys switched to boxers even if they didn't like them. That made the situation worse and fueled the negative feelings about tighty whities leaving us where we are today where boxers/boxer briefs are acceptable choices, but if you wear tighty whities you better be prepared to be harassed on a frequent basis.

by Anonymousreply 6304/15/2012

Underwear sociolinguistics

My posting on "Tighty-whities: the semantics" elicited some thought-provoking e-mail about the use of this expression and of other pieces of underwear vocabulary. A lot of what's going on, but not all of it, turns on attitudes towards the underwear itself -- the perceived social "meanings" of the underwear (briefs vs. boxers, Y-fronts vs. bikini briefs, white vs. colored, cotton vs. more exotic fabrics) -- rather than on attitudes towards particular linguistic expressions.

1. In my first posting on this subject ("Tidy-whiteys") I noted the disdain that some people have for white Y-front briefs, a disdain that seems to be based on the judgment that such underwear is conservative, unadventurous, uptight. Now Lal Zimman has written (on 21 March 2005) to say that the negative judgments are likely to be on both the clothing and the expression tighty-whities (or however you want to spell it), and to offer another route to these judgments:

Personally, I have always found tighty-whities to be a derogatory way to describe an article of clothing that is also being judged as negative (so it would be bad if I said "Ha ha, you wear y-fronts!" but if I say "tighty-whities", I'm insulting you both with the fact itself and the wording), unless one is talking about children's underpants (since little boys are expected to wear tighty-whities.) I think the origin of the negativity associated with tighty-whities comes from people in their 20s or younger, for whom there was enormous pressure at a certain time for boys to switch over from tighty-whities to boxers. Boxers were cool because of skaters, rappers, and grunge rock stars showing their boxers, and this desirability reinforced the separation of boxers as adult and T-Ws as childish. So (for me and my peers at least) around early adolescence, when a child is the worst thing you can be considered, the switch had to be made and T-Ws were forever looked down upon.

This is briefs vs. boxers, with the canonical briefs being white and cotton and fly-front. In the social world Zimman is describing, boxers communicate adulthood.

Competing with this social meaning is what I'll call the "hotness effect": briefs (of any sort) are hotter than boxers, because briefs display your equipment (in remarkable detail, if the briefs are tight enough and thin enough), and men are, well, vain about these things. The package is especially important to gay men, and it turns out that material designed for gay men portrays a world of briefs, not boxers.

Consider the Undergear catalogue, which (with its big brother the International Male catalogue) is transparently aimed at a gay male audience. The Spring 2005 issue of the catalogue offers not a single pair of boxer shorts. There are briefs of many varieties: bikini briefs, boxer briefs, thongs, jockstrap briefs (essentially jockstraps with seats). But no boxers; the occasional item labeled "boxer" is actually a boxer brief. Now, in the real world, some gay men do wear boxers. ( I can vouch for this, though I haven't done a systematic study.) From what I see at my (not gay-oriented) health club, plenty of straight men wear briefs too (probably because of the hotness effect, or just for the feeling of support that a pouch provides), but gay guys are in general much more committed to briefs over boxers than straight guys are. The Undergear catalogue provides a kind of distilled version of this commitment: in Gayworld, everybody wears briefs.

In the Undergear Gayworld, guys wear mostly colored briefs (though white is available as well), mostly in extraordinary fabrics (though cotton is available as well). There's the shimmery nylon/spandex Flawless Mesh Collection: "Super sheer, sexy mesh is virtually undetectable beneath clothing. Soft, smooth stretch fabric conforms to body. Available in a variety of brilliant colors... Nude, Black, White [more like Silver, I'd say], Purple, javascript:submitPost();Turquoise, Red." (p. 22) On the facing page there's the nylon/spandex Seamless Mesh Collection, essentially fishnet made into tank tops and box

Under Armour (thanks to endorsement deals like on that MTV Road Rules / Real World Challenge game show) is pretty much the goto fashion line for all those who want to look like trendy jocks during gym workout or outdoor sports.

Personally I prefer clothes where the brand name isn't more important than the quality of the clothes. And I made the experience that with wearing brand name clothes you attract label (and status) obsessed people who'll most likely drop or ignore you for someone better the next chance they get.

The same goes for underwear. I wear what I like to wear for myself and not for some potential trick. But those Calvin Kleins with the red or blue waistband sure look divine.

Eldergay here (53). When I was growing up you never saw white guys wear boxers. They were a black thing. I went to a high in the Brooklyn that was 15% Hispanic, 35% White, 50% Black in the early 70's. The Hispanic guys wore white briefs until junior year, and then most of them switched to colored briefs. The White guys wore white briefs--colored briefs were okay if you were a jock and cool, but otherwise very suspect (i.e, "gay"). Only black guys wore boxers.

We joked it was because they needed more room for their cocks. Lol.

I agree with R109. Tighty whiteys look weird to me on adult men. I like boxers or boxer briefs, and it's a bit of a disappointment if a guy takes off his pants and is wearing tighty whiteys. Not that it's a deal breaker or anything like that.

How about Clever underwear?

by Anonymousreply 11605/05/2012

I ain't gonna lie. Tighty whiteys are a deal breaker for me, not just because they are wearing them, but almost always a guy who wears briefs will have other more substantial attributes that are unattractive to me. My type of dude just doesn't wear briefs.

If you know you might have a few drops of pee left on your thingee, why don't you rip off a bit of toilet paper and dab the end of your thingee instead of soiling your underwear?

You guys that wear boxer briefs all the time must live in cooler climates. I could not wear all that material under my clothes in Florida. Most of the time I dont feel like wearing clothes at all.

Im trying to find some like these made out of completely sheer material

Why would anyone want that unless you are going to a whorehouse or are a male stripper? Otherwise, it would give you a reputation o as a creepy pervert to avoid and keep away from children.

So Bjorn has moved into underwear design? He was such a gorgeous boy back in the day. Shame he tried to kill himself. I hope he's gotten a grip.

by Anonymousreply 13805/07/2012

R137, just FYI, Björn has been in clothes design since the late 90s, and underwear is his biggest seller.

For the trunks, which Björn calls "short shorts", there are over 150 prints to choose from. They're pretty big in Europe.

And apart from the fit, which I love, I will always support Björn thanks to my favourite same-sex marriage ad of all time, supported by his brand.

I just made a pair of boxers for myself and will probably make another pair soon.

I think I may have posted upthread that I wear boxer-briefs, but I was looking at underwear over the weekend, and saw some really nice boxers that were almost $40, so I went to the fabric store and bought a McCall's pattern and fabric for $10 and made a pair in about two hours.

The next ones won't take as long, and I may even learn to make boxer-briefs, just because I know I can make better quality than almost anything I can buy.

Briefs looks great on men. Especially white Calvin Kleins.

But what the fuck is up with the Under Armour craze? Where did that come from, and why is it so popular? I haven't tried them yet. What's their major selling point?

by Anonymousreply 15606/06/2012

Hanes or Fruit of the Loom Y-Fronts are the best, longest lasing, and most comfortable underwear. You cannot go wrong with those two brands.

Under Armour is a very popular Maryland sports gear company. They make NFL and other team uniforms, and essentially the label of major athletes. They are the new Nike.

I recently read about Icebreaker underwear, from New Zealand. Has anyone here tried it? Because of the fabric it's made from, supposedly you can wear a pair of the underpants for days because it doesn't absorb odor. If you wash it, it dries in a few hours. It would be great to only have to take one or two pairs of underpants on a trip.

Doesn't absorb odor? I'll be the judge of that, R163.

Unless your name is Scarlett O'Hara and your packing pantaloons in your suitcase, underwear isn't what normally takes up a lot of room.

I wear boxer briefs. I have a short torso, but longish legs in proportion. Tighty whities give me a "ball wedgie" for lack of a better term. Yes, they're FTL or Hanes. FFS--it's just underwear!

I'm kind of unfortunate in that, anything but the traditional white briefs doesn't work for me. Boxer shorts look like girdles and colored underwear looks even more femanine ... again, to me. This is my opinion. Don't flake out on me. Oh, and boxer shorts ... well ... they're shorts, to me. I guess it's all in what you grew up with but nothing is hotter than an average Joe in a nice tight pair of Stafford low-rise white cotton briefs. FTL will do. Hanes are hot, too. Stafford low-rise are my absolute favorite but try to find them. Fortunately, I live in a small city and today, after not being able to find them online, I rushed up to the mall and bought the only two packages in my size on display. These are staying in my briefs drawer, unwrapped but for ... special occassions?

Underwear takes up almost no room. It's the last thing I pack and I just jam it into any available crevice. I've never thought "if only I needed less underwear" while packing. Shoes and outerwear are another story.
