Underwear is a very private concern, but it does not mean that you can simply undermine its role in dressing
Comfort and fit are two key factors, but it also pays to be aware how different types of underwear can match what you wear on top of it:
Briefs by Polo Ralph Lauren
Every man’s go-to underwear, briefs can be worn with any kind of trousers as they leave the thighs exposed. Nevertheless, there are various rises that you should pay attention to. Low-rise briefs should be worn with low-rise trousers, and so on.
Roomier and more flexible, boxers are arguably more comfortable than briefs. But due to their shape, you should only wear boxers underneath a pair of loose trousers. Otherwise, you can end up with a bulky and unpleasant silhouette.
3. BOXER BRIEFS
Combining the tightness of briefs with the length boxers, boxer briefs provide enough coverage sans the roominess. They hug the body and provide ample support, which is why this kind of underwear has been quite popular among men.
4. LONG JOHNS
If you are about to travel to someplace cold, don’t forget to pack a pair of long johns. This two-piece thermal underwear covers the arms and the legs tightly so you can still wear your usual outfit.
