    VK Nagrani makes the best boxer briefs I have ever tried, by far. They actually fit exceptionally well and don't ride up. The, um, "port" in front is ingeniously designed as well. Their boxers are pretty nice as well.

    I am a big fan of his socks as well, but heard he got into the clothing business because he couldn't find underwear that fit well. IMO, he got it right.

    For undershirts, my favorite hands down are the higher end 2(x)ist Pima cotton. They are a slightly ribbed design that fit close to the body but aren't at all restrictive. Their regular line is nothing special. Not a fan of their boxers.

    I like these so well that I have gotten rid of all my other underwear now and these are all I wear.

    JC Penny's 100% cotton heavy weight Stafford underwear. I'm serious. Nothing else comes close.

    HANES slightly irregular boxer-briefs...all of the bang for a fraction of the buck. I wear them short and tight to show off my quads...and my package.

    To be honest I was a little bit skeptical of the elephant thong. Took a leap of faith a while ago and now I can say for sure I'll never go back!

    I'm really into Lululemon boxer-briefs. I exercise a lot on the road and I need those things to dry quickly.

    TMI I realize all too late.

    Anyone else try the SAXX underwear, I only saw one post about them and I was considering as they have some nice designs?

    Hanro FTW. Used to think the prices are crazy (because they are), but then I tried them and was instantly hooked. So now I'm 100% hanro for undershirts and underwear (mercerized cotton varieties).

    Once you've built up a full rotation, it's only a few hundred bucks a year run rate to maintain it. Value judgement is personal, but nothing else has as big an impact on comfort for me, especially in hot weather. Extremely light, extremely breatheable, and soft.

    I've been a long time wearer of Under Armour Men's The Original 3'' Boxerjock[​IMG] Boxer Briefs. The Under Armors are great, but if I want something more sexy, I reach for the MeUndies trunks.

    For a classic boxer short, I'm very fond of the ones Neiman Marcus sells. They have them regularly at last chance for around fifteen bucks.

    I have several pairs of the SAXX and think they are amazing. The "pocket" really works and helps keep thing separated and where they need to be. High quality and definitely worth the price.

    For a much lower cost option, I like the jockey boxer briefs with a bit of spandex in them (also make a longer leg version, which tends to ride up less).

    The best, longest lasting boxers I have found are from City Boxers. Made in Maine. They are custom made and a little pricey but last forever and a great selection of fabrics. https://www.cityboxers.com/

    Im a huge fan of modal fabric underwear and wear MeUndies because their much softer than cotton. Recently discovered an Australian brand Mosmann who also specialises in modal and micromodal with some cool prints.

    I like Hanro.
    Went to have a look at the Zimmerli range at Selfridges the other day (appeared of very high quality and of soft comfortable materials) and the composition labels all state that the items are "Made in the EEC" or "Made in EC". I queried the SA about this who smiled and assured me that everything Zimmerli makes is produced in Switzerland. But a "Made in Switzerland" statement is nowhere to be found.

    I've tried various underwear styles over the years, briefs, boxers, boxer breifs and trunks and have settled recently on briefs. I'm aware that they are not the most popuar among my age group (im 32) but I also see that they are slowly becoming more popular and there are some nice designer styles to be had. I'm also finding that a lot of what is available is a bit mroe suited to the older gent shall we say.

    Basically I am looking for something classic, well fitted and stylish without spending a fortune (I'm usually a multipack guy). Does anyone have any suggestions? Needs to be available in the UK. I've tried a few high street mens stores own brands with varying success. I had heard good things about the UNIQLO breifs but seems they have changed them now and they are not so good.

    So - younger briefs wearers - whats in your drawer?
