10 men’s underwear brands we love
This year, you’re done wearing underwear that’s wack for your sack. Here are our picks for the best men’s underwear you should nab for the sake of your nads:
1. Calvin Klein
Calvin Klein can talk dirty to us anytime. This brand just knows how to make men’s underwear. It’s the leading name in men’s designer underwear that still remains relatively affordable. The cotton blend is perfect for breathability and stretch, but they also carry 100% cotton choices that feel just as luxurious.
The workhorse of the underwear game, Hanes is iconic and popular because it always provides solid comfort and support. The company has made high-quality undies for over a century, so you know your bangers and mash are in good hands with them.
3. Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren is another classic underwear brand that makes a vast array of undergarments, including men’s boxers and modal-infused briefs that are super soft and silky. Whichever you buy, this brand is a household name for a reason; you can’t go wrong stocking your drawers with their drawers.
The name Lululemon is synonymous with comfort and performance. So why wouldn’t they make a fantastic pair of men’s underwear? While this brand is better known for leggings and yoga apparel, it has some impressively cozy items for your underwear drawer that are just as phenomenal to wear to the gym.
Uniqlo makes our list because its affordable, practical underwear can pretty much do it all. For the price, Uniqlo makes some of the comfiest and best men’s underwear you’ll find. The company is heralded for producing impressive basics, and its underwear line is no exception.
Sunspel falls squarely on the opposite end of the spectrum. These are high-society bloomers from a British brand that’s been supporting bollocks for ages now. And once you don a pair for yourself, you’ll understand why they’re so special. The material is luxurious, and the fit is befitting of any king’s family jewels.
7. J. Crew
J. Crew gets a spot on the list for providing an excellent midpoint between affordability and luxury. The boxers, in particular, are at a fantastic price point and are some of the coziest things you can sleep in, aside from the buff. Pure cotton in multiple colors and patterns makes these men’s undies even more appealing.
8. Tommy John
Things are serious when the brand is a guy with two first names. Tommy John goes above and beyond in the average Joe’s underwear drawer due to superior comfort and fit. These briefs will play nice with your between-me-down-there.
You’ve probably seen the name MeUndies before and been intrigued by the brand’s exciting colors and patterns. If you’re the kind of guy who likes his underwear drawer to show off some of his personality, MeUndies is definitely up your alley. And it’s a subscription service, so you’ll always have a fresh pair with cute little watermelons, silly monkeys, or whatever else floats your scrote.
10. Mack Weldon
A newer face on the scene, Mack Weldon is rounding out the selection. This is underwear that has thought of everything. They’re comfortable, quick-drying, fight back against odors, and are perfect for every occasion in the everyman’s life.
The top 5 men’s panties
We’ve covered the typical coverings, like boxer briefs and cotton underwear, but what about fellas looking for something silky and sultry? You’re still in the right place! Here are our favorite five men’s panties to add to your boudoir wardrobe (or show off on your Grindr profile).
1. Vanity Fair
Vanity Fair is touted as a fantastic men’s panty because it doesn’t read too masculine or feminine. So, if you want undies to cover a non-biney hiney, these are the ones.
Bali has some great panties, including the Skimp Skamp brief. Although they’re marketed for women, they have excellent coverage and a high-rise design, making them ideal for men’s comfort.
3. Calvin Klein
Yep, it’s your old buddy Calvin again! This brand is a superb pick if you want something cooling that lets you go cheeks out.
Carnival falls more into the sexy, feminine category with their lacey options, like the high-cut tux bikini panty. But if that’s what you’re after, you’ve found it with Carnival.
5. Hanky Panky
Not to be outdone by Carnival, Hanky Panky has entered the chat with its signature lace and vibrant, sexy colors. And as a nice bonus, they’re still soft and comfy enough for everyday wear.
And 5 options for jockstraps, just for good measure
We’re spoiling you for choice! Every gay man needs a pair of easy-access undies, so here are some of the best jockstraps on the market to wear everywhere, from the office to the circuit party.
ASOS is an excellent pick for undies because they don’t break the bank but might break your beau’s brain when he sees them. The signature jockstrap has mesh panels, perfect for letting someone know you’re gay right before you have gay sex.
2. Calvin Klein
What can we say about Calvin Klein that hasn’t already been said (by us)? Well, they make stellar jockstraps that are both sexy and simple — a delicious combo for the jockstrap chap. Calvin Klein also has a pride collection because they absolutely understand their target audience — and it’s you.
Who doesn’t like a good top? Topman jockstraps are simplicity incarnate. Their black jockstrap three-pack is the homoerotic equivalent of the little black dress. And everyone needs a few of those in their closet, right?
If you want a jock to actually use for sports instead of just role-playing as the star player, you can absolutely trust Adidas’s well-constructed jocks. They feature moisture-wicking technology to keep your boys dry.
5. Emporio Armani
The name says it all, so you should wear these higher up so everyone can see the logo on your waistband. Armani’s luxurious approach to clothing extends to their jockstraps, justifying the price. They’re timeless, well-made, and usually don’t stay on very long in our experience.
