  1. Great post! One thing I learned when buying men’s underwear for my husband is that the fly and pouch design were important to him. He prefers underwear that doesn’t have a fly as he doesn’t use it. He also wanted to try a style with a pouch up front for more space. I guess it’s like cup size in a bra, but for men. The designer brands got very expensive but I ended up a pair free (plus shipping) from Frundies and he loves them.

  2. Nice post. I like your article the way you written about mens underwear clothing and I also prefer the mens thongs,brief and bikini underwear style most.

  3. Very interesting article. Men’s underwear has been advancing in leaps and bounds. More guys are abandoning the discount store multi-pack of underwear for all sorts of styles and high tech fabrics.

  4. This is a great analysis of the choices of men’s underwear today. There are a lot of new fabrics, designs, and colors. Men are considering underwear that they didn’t before — jocks, thongs, briefs, etc.
