    Hey guys! I'm getting dangerously low on underwear, so I figured I might as well get some ones I like.

    I'm aiming for these ones similar to some I got a while ago at H&M. They are technically boxer briefs, I think, but kind of shorter than most of the things I see when I google "boxer briefs". I'd basically like to get more of them, but maybe with different patterns/colors.

    So this is what I mean by too long:

    But I don't want them to be as short as regular briefs, like these:

    [​IMG]

    These are about the perfect length:

    Or these:

    Is there a name for this length?

    Anyway, I just have a couple requirements. I absolutely don't want to wear something that has the name plastered across the elastic part. I really don't want any words on them, really. I also like it where the elastic part itself is inside a little fabric, so it's not directly on my skin.

    The style I would really like as far as patterns is this, I'm not sure what it's called:

    Baby rib, I guess it's called. I would also like striped ones, but really only with horizontal, thicker stripes:

    I know I'm stupidly picky, but that's the way I am. Can anyone help a poor guy who needs underwear??

    I call them Pat Rafter's "very comfy undies". Over here in Aussieland we have a brand called "Bonds" and they call them hipster trunks.

    Uniqlo also has this type of underwear.

    Got quite a few pairs of these myself and Pat Rafter speaketh the truth.

    By the way I also think you just enjoy posting pics of men's 'trunks' :p

    Goddamnit, you have NO idea how many crotches I had to look at to find these pictures. God forbid my boss looks at my history, things would get awkward...

    Thanks! I'll check all of these out.

    You found the perfect underwear at H&M. You post a bunch of pictures of other brands and criticize them as not being what you're looking for. Are you joking or completely retarded? Go back to H&M! It's not as though it's expensive.

    You actually mean to tell me there might be a gay somewhere round here?

    No kidding. What an idiot. Also the ones that he shows that are right have the brand on them, why not just go to website and order them. He loves the crotches!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And thanks for analyzing the appropriateness of "length" on each of them.
