The Boxer Brief
This might be the most common one around, available in various lengths and various levels of support. This is the most flattering of them all – washboard abs aren’t necessary with this look – so that can be a good thing for some. Avoid anything too long in the leg – it’s underwear not a base layer. Pro Fits all sizes. Con Borderline basic.
