Men’s boxer shorts are the most popular style of underwear for men, closely followed by briefs.  As a result boxers appeal to all age groups. For instance you must have seen them featured many times in fashion magazines underlining their popularity.

Who can forget those images of David Beckham and similarly Christiano Ronaldo plastered all over the billboards. In other words boxer shorts are hot!

Recently we have seen a resurgence in their popularity. For example being worn under very loose jeans, exposing the trunk and waistband above the top of the jeans. As a result it’s very much a young persons look who certainly drive fashion with looks.  Above all, looks being far more important than comfort.

The most popular men’s boxer shorts don’t always have to be by Calvin Kline. In addition there are many other quality brands to try. We have listed a few below and explain why we like them too …

2) Jockey

Jockey are a very well known and reliable brand, therefore by buying their boxer shorts you will definitely get comfort. In addition you will also get a well made, high quality product. However, because they are  not to everyone’s taste and often marketed at the more mature market. Don’t let that stop you, they can still have a place in your draw alongside the more fashionable brands. Here are some examples of their boxers..

Today I look at another range of underwear from Big Boys. Designed to fit every contour they look amazing on, in the mirror and also a great hit with onlookers!

There is a nice range to choose from so where do you start? Initially the style can be scary while the obvious question is am I going to fit! Well, you can relax because Big Boys say they design for all sizes. They also say if you’re of average or large size you will benefit the most. They are flexible and stretchy so can cope with all our shapes and sizes. As a result some smaller guys may want to look at other ranges. There are also plenty of other styles out there for you too.

The material is something I haven’t come across before: Lenzig Modal. It is softer than cotton, feels like silk on the skin and is very lightweight. The pouch design, which looks so amazing, fits your parts and lets them hang in a natural way. This will give you lots of support and of course all designs are very cozy.

Big Boys styles

The Big Boys underwear range has four styles to choose from…

The choice of colours are bold but they do have white, grey and black for slightly more timid men. In contrast you can go for bright blue, orange, green and purple if you really want to be noticed. To me, they look great in any colour so don’t be afraid to risk new colours you haven’t tried before.

All the designs are fabulous, so get a friend  or partner to help you make your mind up on designs. If you don’t have someone to help you chose then I would say go bold, get some thongs! You will feel great and relaxed wearing them and as a result will look stunning and ooze confidence.

Above all I  favour the mini briefs, as they have a very minimal look without going down the commando route. Wear them with anything and although a little bigger than the thong you hardly know you have got them on.

Finally my advice… go out and get some and enjoy the feeling.

Meanwhile here are a few examples to get you in the mood.

Good looking and comfy underwear is an large aspect of male grooming. Though you might find an exception here or there, the bulk of people choose to invest well in finding the right underwear for their body shape and style.

The list detailed below will give you insight on the things that you should really look for when going out to buy the right type of men’s underwear for yourself or a loved one!


First of all there is a reason why the price is at the top of this list. This is because not a lot of people consider investing correctly in men’s underwear. Also, the decision is mostly knee jerk and not given much thought. As a result this is why we often end up spending the wrong amount of money on the wrong type of underwear.

The material of the garment will ensure its life span, comfort and function. Also, different materials have different main properties. Do a bit of research, above all looking into the material first will ensure that your purchase goes a long way and carries out its daily function just like you wanted it to.


Comfort is crucial. Nothing can be more annoying than wearing clothes that itch or are annoying. For this reason, it’s best to get something that is both cozy and good value. The main rule is to get something that feels ‘as if it isn’t there at all.’ With that in mind try looking for something in cotton, modal, or nylon.

Though this may be a personal choice, the look of the underwear isn’t always something that many people pay close attention to. However, if you’re looking for something that is functional and looks good as well, then try to go for something that is pouch-type minimal style briefs. Also, a recent poll showed these as the ‘best-looking’ style currently on the market.

Ease of purchase

Finally, it all trickles down to how easily you can buy it. The digital world allows us to make quick purchases at just the click of a button. The reason ease of purchase is even more essential is that it opens up new sources and markets for yourself. Because you are no longer confined to get what is offered in the store down the street.
