    For years I always wore really baggy boxers under all of my pants. Then a couple years ago, when I started wearing slimmer jeans, I switched to boxer-briefs. However, I've never been satisfied. I've tried tons of different brands and styles (trunks) and I always have the same problem: the ride up my thighs. So I decided to try a pair of briefs: 2(x)ist Soy Briefs. Instant gratification. I get the same support as boxer-briefs but since there is not all of that extra material around the thighs, I get zero riding and 100% comfort. Sure, they look ridiculous, but ultimately I see myself switching over permanently. Unless there is a better way?

    In with banana hammock before someone else is.




    Boxers bunch up a LOT in slim pants.


    Might as well get the freeballing joke over with too.

    They don't even look ridiculous. I mean, unless you're a fatass.

    I'm with you man! Made the switch to briefs this year.

    However, to avoid looking like (1) myself at 8 or (2) my father, I get the variety packs of Hanes that come in black, navy, and grey.

    You're exactly right. Boxer-briefs are useless. The boxer-brief love has always been confusing.

    When not sized down 3, they offer support without restricting movment. I've never had a problem with boxer-briefs riding up, but I've also never gone into skinny cuts. On the other hand, I do cycle through a pair of AA briefs. Fun colors. The ladies love it.

    it's briefs or boxers for me. never understood the point of the boxer brief; the boxer is supposed to be relaxed while the brief offers structure and support, you merge the two and they cancel each other out might as well get a brief.

    i dont like how boxers tend to ride up, other than that i just wear either one depending on which is immediately available.

    As a gay man, I can honestly say that men look MUCH better in a nice, well fitting pair of white calvin klein briefs than some raggedy boxers. Just throw them out after they get stains and work out.

    Stretch boxer briefs are the end-all-be-all of ball cupping technology as far as Im concerned. I've put many long minutes of thought into this and tried a good half a dozen or more brands, the best one by far is the Calvin Klein Tech Cool-- the length and non-dorkiness of boxers, and the tightness and non-bunchiness of briefs. The tech cool is moisture whicking so if youre active during the day your boys stay drier. http://www.amazon.com/Calvin-Klein-U...0647539&sr=8-1 Yes, now youve all found me out, I've been here for years as a shill for Calvin Klein waiting for the moment when I can spring the Tech Cool boxer briefs on you.

    i have the calvin klein 365 briefs. actually i have the whole range, and i like the briefs the best. the hip brief rides up and give me wedgies and the boxer briefs bunch up in the leg.

    i reccomend getting something that is 99% cotton and 1% some kind of manmade stretchy fabric so they keep their shape and don't stretch out. nothing more unattractive than a pair of stretched out droopy drawers briefs

    Nothing beats slim boxers for men with penises.

    I believe whodini would be the most qualified person to answer this question.

    Thanks for the info man! I just moved from boxers to boxer briefs, but have been dissatisfied with the performance of the ones I've bought so far. Too loose = may as well have not switched in the first place. I'll try these fancy ones and report back on the ball hugging and non ride-up capabilities.
