    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I purchased a pair to try them out for myself and will report back

    the issue with most boxer briefs that i have is that there is either some name written on the waistband (a la CK) or they just dont fit right; too long, too much bunching up, too tight or too loose, etc. its hard to find the perfect boxer brief. I want to try out the uniqlo ones since theyre advertised as low rise

    The seamless boxer briefs are fucking AWFUL, it's true.

    The Airism ones are best. The regular fit cotton ones are decent, but if you wear pants that are slim through the thighs, you will feel them in there, and they'll stretch and get droopy if doing any physical activity. Just get the Airism ones and be done with it.

    Can you explain why Airism is superior? Is it the lightness of it?

    The Airism don't lose their shape over the course of the day.

    The 100% cotton ones: You start your day wearing boxer briefs, but by the end of the day you're wearing regular boxers. They get kinda baggy.

    Don't get me wrong, they're not the terrible product that the seamless ones are, but the airism are worth the extra $6 for me personally.

    The checked ones that have spandex in them hold shape better, but it looks like they're almost gone and they haven't replaced them.

    Yeah all you guys getting the low rise Airisms may want to reconsider and get the regulars. Pretty much perfect.

    They all don't have that big of print there is actually only one model with the big print out of like the 20 they have. There the kind I wear and the best model I have tried out of I think 5 or 6. No one could see the print though unless you wear your pants abnormal.

    If people can see my underwear then I'm probably doing something wrong

    haven't had any complaints so far about mine (and I've got them in ridiculous hot pink and galaxy).

    I bought several different ones to try, and I'm pretty happy with these. I went back and bought a week's supply. Just wish they offered the same fit and feel in solid colors.

    And does anyone's store have dark grey wool trousers(70% wool) in a 29? Downtown SF is out and I'm gonna check Stonestown tomorrow when I do my groceries, but just in case they're out, I'd like to see if someone can pick up a pair for me.

    ^Which wool? The 40/40? IF you find any in dark gray in the 40/40 blend size 32...please let me know, too.

    I already tried asking Suddenlee and no luck. =\

    I like the look of it, especially the contrast stitching, but wish it had a button down collar. Thanks for sharing.
