Briefs, boxers, fabrics and even going commando are some of the issues men have when it comes to underwear! We discuss them all in this article, which we hope will help and answer any questions you might have.
As you know if you read some of our articles, fashion and mostly style are not just about looking good, but also about feeling good! A man who does not feel good in his clothes does not look his best as others can “read” him as not having the right attitude!
We know that some people buy underwear for show and others for their own comfort, but whatever the reason, underwear must be suitable for you!
First of all, just like any other clothing item, underwear must match the body! Don’t wear underwear that is too loose as you will feel uncomfortable or underwear that is too tight. Wearing too tight underwear can block your blood circulation around your waist and keeping your privates in a space that is too tight is not good either.
Here are some tips to consider when buying underwear:
- Think of what type you want to buy: boxers, briefs etc. Men who have an active lifestyle should go for briefs, as support won’t be an issue. If you have more of a relaxed lifestyle, you can go for boxers, even though boxers tend to ride up during the day. According to a recent study, 57% of men prefer briefs, 18% prefer tight boxers, and 29% prefer roomy boxers.
- Consider the pair of underwear you wear in connection to the pants you wear: if you wear tight pants, you should probably go for briefs, but if you wear looser pants, boxers will do the job.
- Your underwear size is just like in the case of pants, your waist size.
- Another thing you need to focus on is the fabric of your underwear. According to a survey, most men prefer cotton. Silk, satin and spandex are other good fabrics. Try to avoid fabrics that will not allow your skin to breather, such as polyester.
When you decide your budget, think about the cost per wear. The cost/wear ratio is a simple calculus you can do. If you buy an expensive pair of underwear, which feels and looks good and you wear it a lot, then the cost/wear ratio drops. For example, if you buy a $45 pair, which you will wear 100 times in a year, the cost/wear is $0.45 and we think the comfort is worth the money.
Going commando is also an option, but that is your option! But be careful with the zipper!
