All men, regardless of age, occupation or lifestyle, deserve great underwear particularly in the summer months. That is, underwear that both feels and looks better than just “good, I guess.”
That means underwear that 1) fits, 2) doesn’t have holes in it, 3) is less than five years old, and 4) doesn’t induce cringing when your trousers come off.
Beyond being a practical necessity, slipping on a decent pair of underpants in the morning is one of the most important parts of starting a new day. Think of a good, clean, well-fitting, sexy (yes, sexy) pair of underwear as a psychological advantage…especially in summer!
Sure, some guys will argue that the type underwear doesn’t really matter, it does, even more so in summer! Think of your pants gents as a woman would think of her bra. She gets the right style, support and SIZE that’s specific to her. We need to do the same!
All us chaps do varying jobs, have varying lifestyles and different needs, so on these hot summer days and what could be uncomfortable nights, if you find yourself rearranging yourself, it’s probably because the pants you are wearing aren’t right for you!
So now that we all agree, the challenge is to find you just the right pair. There are a lot of different styles, looks, and degrees of premium-ness — and each has its own place in a man’s wardrobe. Here are some of the best makes and styles available that offer A-grade value without threatening your riches.

Increasingly popular, trunks are the beautiful hybrid of briefs and boxers. The most recognizable trait of trunks is their squareness, which is due to their short legs. They are highly versatile since they hug the body, avoiding the potential bunchiness of boxers. If you usually wear briefs but are interested in trying something different, this is a good option.
If you’re after a classic underwear cut and style, but with a modern design and cracking support. Drake & hutch are for you. There’s absolutely no way you’d fear running around in your underwear on a warm evening at home in these, the understated logo on the waistband adds a touch of class.

Sporty, with a classic edge, this underwear allows you ‘room to breath’ and come in wholesome stylish colours. The tie up front allows easy access if you’re playing sport in those ’emergency’ situations and hold you in place for the times your package needs the ultimate support.
Generally loose-fitting, boxers provide the least amount of support out of all the styles. That said, since nothing is too “compartmentalized”, air circulates more freely, meaning they are also the most breathable. While traditional boxers tend to be almost baggy, more trendier options lean towards slimmer fits. They also have an open fly for easy access and exit, which is nice.
Most guys own at least one pair of briefs — they are the standard, go-to style that have been around forever. They cover all the important stuff (your backside and package), but leave the thighs uncovered. The minimal fabric means absolutely no bunching under tighter fitting pants, and total versatility. Briefs also tend to come in three rises: high, medium, and low. For optimum comfort, make sure you match the rise of your chosen underwear with the pants you’re wearing.
