Briefs or commando, all dependant on mood.

Commando. It's an airflow thing.

Boxers. This "support" thing that people keep going on about with briefs and boxer briefs is something I want no part of. It makes me feel itchy and I have to constantly make adjustments. As much as I like touching my dangly bits, there's a time and a place, and I'd prefer if it's not constantly and everywhere.

Going Kommander is also an option. It's like going commando, but also involves not wearing pants.

Maybe you're buying them a size too small?

Boxer-briefs are the correct answer. If you'd included them in the poll, suspect you'd see they've overtaken both of the traditional styles...

^They started in the late '90s or early 2000s. I've been wearing them since about 2002 since they offer the airiness of the boxers with the support of the brief in other areas. I particularly like that they have more room in the middle for certain things. Things move around way too much in boxers and briefs feel as tight as a prison cell.
Agree.

Meat and two veg, twig and berries, wedding tackle, bobby dangler, giggle stick.

I get a lot of my British-isms from Austin Powers movies.

Re: Poll: boxers or briefs? (thread rating: PG-13)

The lack of a boxer-briefs option on this poll is truly a travesty. So, we boxer-briefers are "unmentionable" "others," are we?

Just remember the old adage: first, they came for the commandoes, and I said nothing, for I did not go commando. Then, they came for the boxer-briefers...

Another vote for boxer-briefs here. Truly, the best of both worlds.

Boxers are too loose fitting, and frequently ride up into The Phantom Zone, thus causing you to have to do that embarrassing reverse Picard Maneuver to unwedge them.

Briefs make Fandral, Hogun, and Volstagg (The Warriors Three) feel like they're stuck in the Death Star trash compactor, complete with the freaky one-eyed monster struggling to get out before the walls crush him.

We need to secure our borders, but also, we need breathing room!

Re: Poll: boxers or briefs? (thread rating: PG-13)

I have always worn briefs. No plans to change this.

Not only do briefs suit my needs just fine as they are, going to boxers this late in the game would just feel way too weird.

LOL we just found another planetary constant: my mom told me literally the same and she was told it by her mom.
(to which admonition the traditional reply in my family is: "and stay a good catholic, don't engage in intermarriage, don't get run over by a tricycle and don't fall into a letter box!" )

...as I remember, along with the clean underwear thing, there were only 4 Major Perils:

Fall down

Poke someone's eye out

^^ My Mother used to say, "Be careful with that or you'll put somebody's eye out. Then the fun will be over."

That's what I get for going kommander.
