Boxers are by far one of the more popular choices when it comes to men's underwear. Boxer shorts offer a classic fit and they have a fuller cut than other underwear styles like briefs, thongs and boxer briefs. Their fit is comparable to the fit of shorts with an elastic waist. This style is primarily chosen among others by men because of their comfort and free fit as well as the variety of colors and patterns available. Boxer shorts usually have a fly in the front; sometimes there is a button closure or metal snaps. There are certain boxer styles that don’t have a closure however they’re designed to overlap offering ample coverage. The most common fabrications include cotton, cotton/polyester, jersey knit and silk. They usually don’t offer much stretch so a generous panel of looser fitting fabric is sewn into the center of the rear, which accommodates movement nicely. Brands like Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, Polo Ralph Lauren, Emporio Armani, Tommy Hilfiger Boxers and others manufacture high-quality boxers in comfortable fabrics and mod patterns including stripes, plaids, geometrics and florals as well as solids in traditional colors. Boxers are a great choice for any man when it comes to shopping for underpants. This style offers classic style and cool comfort.
