    I primarily adorn Hanes Boxer Briefs, which do the job of course. However, I did step out of my usual zone and buy Equipo boxer briefs (very comfortable, fitting, smooth, and even great for swimming), but I rarely wear them out of the mentality that they should be only worn for someone else. A few of my friends have nice underwear, but either they are in relationships or attractive enough to find guys to hook up with. I, in particular, have no one, and though I should buy such undergarments for myself, I still hold myself back from investing in them out of insecurity and belief that they should only be wore to impress guys./

    That said, do you guys buy nice/fancy underwear? If so, what do you get? If not, what do you wear? Should you invest to impress or for yourself? And is it worth the money?

    You should wear them for you! Not for others. Women often wear sexy lingerie to feel good about themselves, even if they are a little uncomfortable. That said, straight bros have a saying, "If you're having sex with a girl and she's wearing sexy underwear-- despite what you think, the sex was never your idea."

    Yup. If you possibly can, make sure that whenever you leave your home, you LOOK the very BEST you can. (And judging by your profile pix, you really CAN. Big time.) No matter what, why, how, who... Adopt this habit just like you brush your teeth and shower, and do not really think much about the virtue of doing these things in the first place.

    Looking good helps majorly in life. It won't open all the doors ahead of you, but it usually does open a few... And sometimes, a little foothold is all you need.

    So, if you can afford it, invest in your wardrobe a bit. Do NOT overdo the good thing, and make sure that you are not creating the impression of someone who is sweating it by desperately trying to impress it upon the others. Make it look and feel perfectly yours, perfectly natural, and you are good to go...

    If you do it for anyone, do it for yourself. You're the one that has to look at them. I never looked at buying underwear as an investment.

    Personally, I can't ever seeing myself pay over $20 per pair...well..anymore. I have purchased the more expensive ones before and I have not found them to be better. In fact, some of the most expensive ones I have bought in the past have not lasted very long. I prefer to get them on sale.

    I like Assiebum, N2N Bodywear, Pistol Pete, Andrew Christian, etc. To me, it is more about fashion and having a little fun. I don't take it seriously.

    What ever happened to "underwear night" at the clubs?

    Oh shit, maybe I just got old.

    No worries. Every day is "underwear day" around here.

    I would only buy underwear that I like. They don't have to be expensive or fancy, but I have to like them. Be good to yourself man!

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidNothing fancy for me.

    I buy Kirkland brand boxer briefs in a multi-pack from Costco.


    Oh please, you'd look good in a diaper. The rest of us mere mortals need help.

    I'd stockpiled 100% cotton Calvin Klein boxer briefs (try finding those now, they're the blue one's I'm wearing in some pictures) but of late have found Hugo Boss to be flattering.

    Yep, now I need couture to hold everything in.

    I buy expensive underwear because their material is comfortable, not because they're brand name and "fancy." There's nothing more uncomfortable to me than rough or synthetic fabric.

    I don't care for fancy brand. Just comfort. I like my Tommy Hilfiger ones the best.

    "Adorn?" Well, OK ...

    The ONLY time I buy u-trou is when they're on sale. Then, I'm all over them at Banana Republic, Jockey Store, Lands' End, J Crew, or anywhere else I can get cool designs for cheap. I've got upwards of 50 pairs, I'm sure, in all kinds of styles, colors, cloths, and patterns, but most are boxers, and I live in them all day. Whether I adorn them or they me remains open to debate, but I always like seeing guys in cool trou; it makes them seem "adventurous." icon_cool.gif

    Just buy a few styles that you like from an online underwear store.

    www.n2nbodywear.com

    www.erogenos.com

    www.bodyaware.com

    www.rufskin.com

    You'll find something here.
    If you have an Amazon account just type in the style you're looking for in the search.

    Just for fun I like to buy them at TJ Maxx. They don't have all of the fancy upscale brands, just a few and it's hit or miss, but it's a good learning lesson in seeing how the overpriced stuff really isn't any better than the cheapo stuff. In fit, looks, and durability. And if you want to look like an underwear model who's packing a big basket, go down a size.

    I didn't mention Rufskin because I found that their underwear does not last very long. The waistband usually gives out pretty quickly. Their shorts have been pretty good though.

    It's getting to the point where I would actually pay more for a good pair WITHOUT somebody's name or brand printed in big obnoxious letters on the waist band. But I have to admit, some of those are some of the best ones I have.

    For a while, there was a little gay-leaning shop downtown PDX that sold nothing but sexy men's underwear. You could try them on and model them for your BF or GF. One of the stops you could make on a date. Not sure if it's still there. I assume that if you tried them on, you had to buy them, but I don't really know.

    I'm currently favoring Puma boxer briefs (or trunk briefs; I'm never sure which is which). Stretchy, nice and tight, and keeps my junk's movement at a minimum. Inexpensive at TJ Maxx.

    Treat yourself to some really nice underwear.
    It doesn't have to be expensive, but it should be comfortable, and it should be something that you think looks good on you.

    People no longer pay as much attention to their appearance as they once did. To see the difference, watch an old Perry Mason program; you can find one on Youtube. The women are wearing nice dresses, hats, gloves, and carrying nice pocket books. The men are wearing coats and ties.

    My mother had an extensive glove wardrobe. She had gloves of all lengths, some on wrist length and some elbow length each of which was appropriate for certain occasions. I never left the house in the evening without wearing a coat and tie. For church I wore a suit. I even wore a coat and tie to work.

    When my mother was at an all-girls' college for her first two years of college, the girls had a contest to see who could get to town with the fewest items of clothing. They had to walk past the matron's desk to leave. The girl who won the contest wore a raincoat, a hat, and a pair of gloves.

    Perhaps some day people will again dress nicely.

    I don't think we need to go back in time, but I hear you to some extent. I think it's silly that people get talked down for dressing nicely, or made fun of for it.

    You sure know how to pay a compliment to a guy.

    Part of the reason why I don't invest in fancy underwear is because my inner thighs rub as I walk to the point of literally wearing the fabric away and it breaks down. So I buy cheap and replace them often.


    Skip leg days, problem solved. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    For any kind of underwear, I have to make sure to not get high-rise ones. I didn't pay attention and kept getting them. They get up to my waist and look horrible if I take my shirt off. They feel annoying too. icon_confused.gif

    I'm not sure if that part was a compliment or suggestion for a makeover, because I'm in need of one, but thank you for the advice. I generally dress as in to not look like a hot mess.
