Out of sight, out of mind. For a lot of guys, this idiom perfectly describes the mentality when it comes to shopping for boxers. Few others will see your boxers, and if they do, it’ll only be for a moment – so why bother? Well, we could think of a few reasons.
First off, if you’re just grabbing whatever is the cheapest pair you come across – you’re not only ensuring you’ll be less comfortable than your more discerning peers, but you’ll likely find yourself back on the hunt for a new pair after not too long. Cheaper, poorly constructed boxer briefs often come apart at the seams faster than better-built pairs. If you’re content with underwear with holes in them, godspeed. Feel like you deserve something better? Take a scroll through our list of the best boxer briefs for men and see what you’ve been missing out on.
