This buyer’s guide is a gentle reminder to throw away your old underwear as it’s time to refresh for the spring. We focus in on the boxer brief: a hybrid undergarment that fuses the common brief style with the elongated leg of the boxer shorts without that air to the wind feel. A proper boxer brief will fit snug and keep things in order while also looking great on wear. We present a high/low list of options from the likes of UNIQLO, The White Briefs, and others.
This guide is an update to our 2012 list of men’s undergarments.
Fix up your black tie look with these briefs from Etiquette Clothiers. Fine 40/1 organic combed cotton is employed to give you comfort on wear. ($36)
These well-priced boxer briefs from MeUndies feature 92% Micro-Modal fabric made from beechwood making them the lightest weight boxers on this list. Available in countless colors and patterns ($16)
3. UNIQLO Men’s Airism Low Rise Boxer Briefs
The most economical briefs on this list are also some of the most technically forward: the UNIQLO Airism low rise boxer brief features a touch of polyester to give them stretch. The Airism technology is quick-drying, anti-microbial, and anti-odor fighting. That’s good news for all. ($13)
We have no idea what the model is doing in the photo above. What we do know is that these premium briefs from The White Briefs feature a short leg opening and are made from 100% organic Supima cotton. ($43)
For those who like to keep things locally made, these New York City produced briefs are also made from Supima cotton for ultimate comfort. ($42)
Those who prefer a dash of color will appreciate the contrasting look of these COS boxer briefs. Unfortunately, COS is not available in North America yet. We hope soon enough. ($23)
