Men’s underwear guide part 5

Underwear styles and types, number 4: Boxer briefs and trunks

Good things about them: they are perfect for workouts, particularly compression boxer briefs and they work under all kinds of pants. Bad things about them: they are worse than briefs for sitting but better than boxer shorts.

Underwear styles and types, number 5: Thongs, bikinis, and g-strings

There are men who enjoy the feel and look of a thong, bikini or g-string, but it is not for everybody. Typically all of these styles work best for men with exceptionally well-sculpted bodies relish the look of it. The bikini is a smaller style of the brief, also called a micro brief. They expose the entire thigh, still managing to cover the buttocks with a small front pouch. The Thong is similar to the bikini, offers a confined space in the front connected by thin fabric strips, leaving the buttocks exposed. The g-string is a minimalist version of the Thong that shows as much skin as possible. Usually made of spandex or nylon, they can be slightly more expensive than the other styles due to the materials used. Good things about them: there is no bunching and you can make a statement. Bad things about them: rear string can be uncomfortable and they are harder to find.

Underwear colors, number 1:

Men’s underwear today comes in all colors and patterns under the sun, with the most popular color being solid white. If you generally wear thicker, dark pants fabrics, such as denim, dark flannels, or cavalry twill the color or pattern of your underwear will not show through and you can wear whatever you want. However, during the summer, when you wear lightweight pants such as cotton, seersucker or fine worsteds in light colors, you can see strong underwear patterns through your trousers. In that case, you want a pair of underwear in solid tones that is as close to your skin tone as possible.
