if you wear briefs you might as well wear boxer briefs. Briefs are not attractive at all. Seems childish.

I don’t see what everyone’s problem is around the wearing of briefs, why don’t you wear what you feel comfortable in, I’m 34 and I wear briefs all the time, I find that they are most comfortable, and I need the support as very large in that department

No shame in that. I usually wear boxer briefs under my suit, but white Fruit of the Loom briefs under everything else. In the morning around the house, it's just a tshirt and briefs. Which brands do you all like?

if you dont wear briefs of some sort than thats a problem if youre older than 16, boxers look so childish and bad on guys, briefs boxer briefs and trunks are options for actual real underwear. as soon as i turned 17 i got designer briefs. way more comfortable. guess what they dont make you gay somehow. and they look good. id say about 1 in 200 guys wear boxers if that. i work at a pool and ive only seen one younger male wearing boxers in six months.

briefs over boxers. boxers are the least acceptable. its all about personal preference but boxers shouldnt be used by anyone. short leg trunks are in my opinion the most comfortable and appealing. where i live people who wear boxers are the ones being made fun of in the background.i wear briefs, and wearing them doesnt make you gay jesus christ
(Original post by surrey_guy)It seems boxer-briefs r the most popular type. Out of loose boxers and briefs what is more acceptable to wear?

Both me and my boyfriend wear briefs. I’ve started wearing thongs/jockstraps too. My boyfriend occasionally wears boxers but I admit I find it sexier when he’s in briefs

I'm 28 years old and have worn briefs my entire life, so I obviously feel that briefs ARE acceptable to wear. In all honesty though, boys/men should wear what they want and what they find most comfortable to them and not let society dictate their underwear preference. At some point in the late 80s or early 90s, society started telling guys that briefs and "tighty whities" were only worn by little boys and old men, and that by wearing them they were a geek or nerd...which simply isn't true. But somewhere along the way boxers became a much more popular choice among guys. Until the early 50s, boxers were king...but pretty soon briefs overtook boxers in popularity and remained there until the early 90s.

I grew up in a small town in Texas (population <1,200) where the nearest Walmart/Target is over 45 minutes away. There were 2 small clothing stores in town, only one of which sold men's clothes...and it had very little variety. Not kidding, when it came to boys/mens underwear, the only options the store had were either classic/plain white cotton Fruit of the Loom briefs and Jockey y-front briefs, or plain white loose-fitting boxers that were some cheap off-brand that isn't very well known. While my family was not poor, we were still frugal and saved money where we could. I have 2 brothers: Preston who is 2 years older than me and Peyton who is 2 years younger, and since our parents liked to save money where they could, me and Peyton usually ended up wearing hand-me-down underwear...I wore Preston's old white Fruit of the Loom briefs while Peyton wore mine. Our parents still bought each of us new underwear when we needed it, but for the most part we continued to wear each other's tighty whities as long as they were in good condition. When Preston started his junior year of high school, he was playing football and basketball and had gotten a lot taller and more muscular, but I was a freshman and kind of skinny and after which meant that Preston's hand-me-down white briefs were too big/loose for me to wear, so our parents bought me my own briefs. However, since Peyton was in 7th grade and he and I wore similar sizes, he continued to get my hand-me-down underwear. While some people who didn't grow up in a small town or with frugal parents might think it's weird for brothers to wear each other's tighty whities, it was actually VERY common where we lived. Most if not all of my guy friends that had older brothers wore underwear that their brothers had outgrown...and 95% of the time the style of underwear worn by boys and men was plain white full cut Hanes, Fruit of the Loom or Jockey briefs. While there was a very small number of guys that wore boxers or colored briefs, the VAST MAJORITY of boys I went to school with wore plain white briefs and nothing else. While most boys living in the early 2000s had already switched to boxers or boxer briefs, boys I went to school with continued to wear classic tighty whities all through junior high and high school. Like my older and younger brothers I played multiple sports and participated in extra-curricular activities like 4H and Boy Scouts...all with the same friends and many of the same leaders/coaches. Walking into our high school boys locker room before and after practice or a game, it probably would've surprised outsiders to find boys ages 15-18 all wearing plain white briefs instead of boxers and boxer briefs. Since nearly all of us boys were rocking tighty whities, thee wasn't much teasing or jokes made about each other's supposedly "geeky" underwear. When I was a senior, a new kid started school with us and played baseball. His name was Evan, and even though many of us were 17-18 years old, he was the first guy that most of us knew who wore boxer briefs. We'd all seen boxer briefs advertised on TV and the internet, but Evan was the first guy we knew personally who actually wore them. I remember Evan's first time changing clothes in the locker room...he was given the empty locker next to mine as we changed into our practice uniforms I remember seeing his grey boxer briefs as he took off his jeans. But I honestly think that he was more surprised at seeing the rest of us wearing tighty whities. Evan and I became pretty good friends and once when he was over at my house playing Madden, my mom came into my room with a laundry basket full of my clean underwear. She dropped it on the ground in front of me and told me to fold and put them away right then. We paused our game and Evan sat there watching as I folded my underwear. There was probably 10-15 pairs of white Fruit of the Loom briefs in the basket and after I had folded maybe 3 pairs, Evan asked "You always wear tighty whities bro?" and I told him something like "Yeah, they're all I wear."

Once I got to college and saw guys wearing a wide variety of underwear, I tried wearing both boxers and boxer briefs...but by that point my underwear preference was well established and I found that I hated the loose feel of boxers nor could I stand the extra leg fabric of both styles. So I quickly went back to wearing the same type and brand of underwear I've worn since I was a kid...plain white cotton Fruit of the Loom briefs. I still wear only briefs to this day and am totally fine wearing them. The white cotton fabric is soft and comfortable, and they hold everything just right and give good support all around. I like that briefs fit snugly around my waist, bottom and crotch and are tight without being constricting. Briefs just work so much better for me and my active lifestyle as a coach and daily runner. So yes...briefs are still an acceptable choice of underwear for boys and men to wear.
Nice story. Please consider becoming a writer.

I have read that briefs are coming back into fashion, and are starting to become more popular than baggy boxers, especialy trendy ones such as American Apparel:

http://store.americanapparel.net/pro...productId=4415

I was talking to my mates the other day and some of them admitted they had started wearing them again and that they preferred them to boxers and that their gfs liked them.

Guys, have you noticed briefs becoming more popular? Have any of you made the switch from boxers to briefs, and if not, would you ever consider doing so?

Girls, what would you think if your bf switched to briefs?
Yes they are, and it's thanks to idiotic minds that they 'fell out of fashion.' Let's be honest...... they are comfortable. Their are many styles which suit many occasions and other clothing worn, so what was ever thd problem? From the 50's to the 80s mdn aere never deemed childish or copying the old (30 years!!!!!!!). So what happened?????? You tell me? Because I really don't know?

Yes, they definitely are. Shops seem to be stocking more of them. Men's underwear has been on a (in hindsight) pointless journey. It's all relative to what people have been groomed into thinking is ok, rather than what they truly like, prefer or don't really care about.

We all now know that boxers serve no purpose except hygiene.

We know that boxer briefs are socially acceptable yet end up looking like y fronts after a couple of hours. Same goes for trunks.

Briefs start and finish at the same point.

There's many styles for different occasions and the same goes for women.

Its 2019 people!

Get real!

Grow up!

Stop being such fickle people!

Wear whatever you want!

Stop judging others!

I am not a fan of Briefs at all, I don’t think they look especially attractive.

In my opinion low rise trunks are superior.

I have always loved wearing briefs, but switched to Boxers because all the other guys in my locker room were wearing them.I have now switched back to briefs, and seen a few lads following my lead. Briefs fit better, mould to the contours of your body, are much sexier and wow! What a wide range is available these days. Go for it you guys, get back into [email protected]
