Briefs, definitely. My father wears them, and so did his father--in fact, Granddad started wearing tighter bikini- and briefs-style underpants when he was on leave in Paris during WWII. At one point we three men were all living together, and it wasn't unusual to find my father on the couch channel-surfing in his Stafford white briefs, Granddad rummaging in the fridge wearing a tight pair of burgundy bikinis (his hairy belly wasn't so great to see, though), and myself in white Jockeys on the back patio reading.

I'm surly heading for a fall...but as an owner of a mens underwear brand...I've done a fair amount of research into this!! There of course are no right or wrong answers, but my recommendation would be to try a few styles out for yourself and see what you like. I personally dont understand why anyone would wear ball strangles...but thats just me. If you do want to try a superior boxer short (100% twice softened cotton, 5th panel at the back etc.)...then I would of course recommend my own brand Burtonwode !! If you dont fancy that...then in my experience Shiesser are well made and their fabric is also top notch. Ralph Lauren also make good stuff. I would look at band thickness (too thin and it constrains, too thick and its unwieldy). Also look out for tunnel banding (that where the elastic is covered by the cotton) as opposed to the elastic just tacked on. Good luck.
