Men spend a considerable time in selecting undergarments. To meet the
expectations of today’s style conscious generation, many manufacturers
have come up with impressive designs.
Cotton boxers for men worn to cover the human genital area are called underwear or
undergarments. These are called so since a layer of clothing is worn
over it and this cloth is thus worn beneath or under. The term
undergarments may also be used to include clothes used to cover the
upper body or torso region. Both men and women use undergarments and the
purpose that they are used for is also similar though the fabric and
style used may be different for men and women. While underwear used by
women is called panties, those used by men are termed as briefs or
boxers. They may also be called by different names in different
Boxers are good way to contain urine and prevent it from
reaching the outer layer of clothing. It is a hygienic way to ensure
that the bodily discharges are withheld and do not soil the outer cloth.
Boxers are the most preferred undergarments used by men the world over.
Cotton is generally the material used to make them though a mixture of
cotton and silk may also be used to make the fabric smooth. Satin is
also a fabric that has become popular in recent times as it feels very
soft and comfortable. Lycra shorts which are a stretchable material are
also used by men especially for activities like swimming.
Trunks or slightly long underwear called thermals are worn in cold
climates and help in keeping the body warm. Made from a mixture of
cotton and polyester, thermals are also available in their longer
version which resembles slacks. They are available in sizes ranging from
small to extra large and can be bought as per the requirement. White is
the preferred colour for undergarments although they are available in a
variety of colours. Available in numerous patterns and designs, men’s
and women’s undergarments can be differentiated by sight.
Men’s boxers tend to be minimalist and the designs are mostly
restricted to horizontal stripes. Printed boxers have also become very
popular in recent times and have prints ranging from floral patterns to
polka dots. There is also an impressive line of men’s socks available in
the market to meet the expectations of contemporary customers.
Briefs are also available for men and come in different styles
including Y front underwear. Underwear for men is generally available in
single units or as a pack and can be bought based on the requirement.
It is very important to buy undergarments which are comfortable and are
of good quality.
