Choosing Your Underwear Style.

Of all the seminal moments in a man’s life – graduations, weddings, the first curled fist of your child around your little finger – none means more than the first time he chooses his own underwear.
But what worked for prepubescent you isn’t your best choice now. Your body’s changed. Your needs have changed. Somewhere there’s a fit that’s more snug. More supportive. More flattering. Let Olivia Francis, founder of underwear experts Hamilton & Hare, be your guide to buying pants that are anything but. 



“This is the traditional Y front. It’s not for everyone but it offers great support and a neat fit. Particularly good for men with large thighs.”



“These are a newer style and offer the simplest silhouette, ideal for wearing under slim-fit trousers. They sit perfectly on the hip, a little lower than other styles, and are short in the leg, cutting across mid-thigh, which make them best for men with skinnier legs.”

Take care with ‘hipster’ styles, warn the experts at M&S; they sit low, so work best with tucked in shirts. Or you risk an intimate breeze every time you bend down.

“These are a hybrid between the traditional boxer short and the trunk – they sit on the waist and are slightly longer in the leg. Universally flattering and versatile, they’re the go-to option for most. Particularly good for those with fuller buttocks.”



“If you’ve ever tried to run in baggy boxers, we sympathise. Athletic underwear comes with special requirements – it has to keep you in place and be breathable enough to cope with sweaty gym sessions.”

Boxer Short

“Traditional boxer shorts offer maximum coverage, comfort and breathability but can often bunch and ride up so do not work well with slim trousers. [Look for] a modern, tailored cut that is much more flattering and works well with slimmer legwear. This means they will complement any body shape, being both flattering and extremely comfortable.”

Underwear Rules

Clear Your Drawers

No matter how well you treat your underwear, eventually those tighty whities will turn to grubby grundies. Make sure that you have a regular check-in with your collection of underwear (about every three months or so) and dispose of anything that you’d be embarrassed to be seen in by a significant other.

Pick Your Fabrics

In most cases, cotton underwear is a great option because it’s natural, breathable and will absorb a degree of unwanted moisture down below – it’s basically your best bet for every day. But if you’re exerting yourself, things get a little more, ahem, steamy, so you’ll need to look for fabrics that bolster cotton’s natural assets by wicking away moisture. A cotton-spandex blend is ideal for gymwear and won’t need to be wringed out after you’ve achieved a
PB on leg day. 

Size Yourself Right

For reasons which we won’t go into, trying on underwear in shops isn’t good form. Having an awareness of your core size and sticking to a certain brand when you’ve found the perfect fit is crucial for comfort, however.

Underwear which comes up too large will have you shifting around in your seat all day, while anything that’s smaller than it should be will cut off your circulation rather than boost your package. Size matters. 

Wash 'em Right

There’s no explanation needed for how dirty your underwear gets, so don’t even think about re-wearing them before sticking them in the washing machine on high heat. But cool things down in the drying process — either air-dry your undies or set the dryer to cool rather than giving them a spin on a high heat, which will stretch out the elastic in the waistband and lead to unflattering, saggy underwear.

Colour Right

For the same reason you need to wash your undergarments so thoroughly, colours like black and navy blue don’t show stains as much as lighter hues, nor do they fade as quickly. As for tighty whities, feel free to leave them behind in your awkward teenage years — there are plenty of more stylish cotton styles out there that are just as comfortable.

Style Right

Need some support down there for exercise? Briefs are your go. But prone to chafing? Boxer briefs are a better cut, providing more coverage. Wearing low-rise jeans? Avoid high-rise briefs unless you want to reveal as much of your undies as a ‘90s rapper. Consider the rise, the fabric, and the design before investing in your next six-pack.
