    Recently, I've been thinking there's something secretly sloppy about boxers, but I'm still wearing them. What do you fellows think? What do you wear?

    Is this a Bill Clinton question. When I'm wearing a suit or SC slacks, its Jockey bikinis ( at 68, not a pic. worthy site ), otherwise it's commando.

    I have been purchasing and wearing Sunspel's low-rise boxer brief for a long time and I have to say I can't think of an item that would be better suited for the purposes of wearing as underwear.

    Zimmerli low-cut boxer briefs are the business.

    My two cents.
    I wore boxers since around 15 years old (late 30's now). About a year ago I switched over to boxer briefs. I tried a few different kinds including those longer in the leg, and even the regular briefs. I resisted a change for years because I felt woman wouldn't find them sexy. Turns out I feel sexier in my mid length boxer briefs which translates for her too. As an added bonus, they are WAY more comfortable than boxers when wearing pants and I wish I switched years ago.

    I have recently tried the new Saxx line and I really like them. So far I have only tried the Fiesta.

    I tried some more options lately. Mypakage - awful name but excellent designs and quality. They tend to run a bit large on me so I recommend if on the cusp - order the smaller size. Also the waist is higher than the Flint and Tinder offering.

    Flint and Tinder makes a good boxer brief as well and does everything I expect it to do. The waistbands are solid and do not roll on either brand no matter what you do. Both are made in North America.

    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.
