Have a question. Anyone know how Sunspel Boxer shorts fit? I'm going to buy a few pairs from here:

http://www.sunspel.com/mens/boxer-shorts

And am not sure if I need to buy size Small or Size medium? I'm a waist size 33" and on Sunspel's webpage it says the small is for 30-32 and the medium is for 34-36. So I'm in between their sizes.

Sunspel customer support emailed me and recommended a size Small and said
I would probably find a MED too big on the waist. However, another Sunspel retailer told me to go with the medium as the small would feel to tight. I know Sunspel has a return policy but I'm in the US and sending them back to England would be a hassle. Trying to prevent that. Maybe I should get the medium and then after a washing they might shrink to a size 33? Not sure if Sunspel shrinks or not though. Thanks in advance for the help or replies!

I'd probably get a small if it were US sizing. But in UK you might be better off with an M. In other words, I don't have a slightest idea.

We can't answer until you post a picture of your...




Oh nevermind, nevermind


Seriously, I'd get the medium. I hate it when underwear feels uncomfrotable. I don't mind if clothes most people can see me make me feel uncomfortable if I look good, but when it comes to underwear, comfort is all that matters.

get the M ... they are not vanity sized and too small would suck

also did you measure your size around your hip

pant size can be tagged for true waist .. i am 35 in at hips but never more than a 33 or 34 tagged pant

i wear the M in sunspel and they are def. not too big
