For men shopping for their next pair of underwear, you probably think the task should be any easy one. It is as simple as spending 10 minutes in the mall or quickly browsing Amazon, right? Wrong…just as women have tons of choices in terms of style, design, color, and fit, the options for men are basically endless.
Once you’ve decided on a style – like boxers, briefs, or boxer-briefs – there are still a few more questions you should as yourself. Many men opt for boxer-briefs, mostly for their comfort, support, and functionality. Designer brands like Calvin Klein and Hugo Boss carry some of the most popular boxer briefs on the market.
But there are so many options in terms of designer boxer briefs, so how can you settle on a pair? Here are 7 things you should consider before purchasing your next pair of designer boxer briefs.
Although designer underwear brands offer the most comfort and style on the market, you first have to make sure it fits the bill. If you’re not willing to pay a bit for feeling comfortable and sexy, head to Target or Walmart. But overall, designer underwear will last longer and they can’t be beat in terms of comfort.
Some of the most popular designer brands for men’s underwear include Calvin Klein and Diesel. Although the average cost of these is more than your basic run-of-the mill underwear, ask yourself if it is worth it. Take into account that a pair of Calvin Klein’s is much more durable than something from Fruit of the Loom.
You might think you’ve been wearing the proper size, but you might be wrong. Before heading to the mall or adding items to your shopping cart, take some measurements first. You might be surprised when you measure your waistline and find out that you’ve been wearing the wrong size for years.
Lots of men opt for underwear that is too tight, mostly because they think it is more supportive. Do your best to choose the appropriate size, and you’ll see how much more comfortable it is.
Checking the fabric of your designer underwear is essential. Nobody wants to spend a pretty penny just to realize the scratchy material is unbearable. Choosing a pair that is majority cotton is always a smart choice. Not only is cotton breathable, it is also soft enough to make you feel like you’re wearing nothing. Check the list of materials before you leave the store.
Color and design
Some men just want to stick to the basics when it comes to their undergarments. The most important thing is a proper fit that offers support and comfort. Finding muted tones like white, black and grey is easy.
But if you want a pop of color or a unique design, you might have to search a bit longer. Designers like Diesel and Armani offer new bright and fun designs every season. If you’re trying not to break the bank, look at the designs from last season to see what is on sale.
