    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.
