You wouldn't think there'd be a lot to learn about underwear — wear it, change it, wash it, repeat — but there's actually more than most men think.
And whether guys choose boxers, briefs, or live to go commando, chances are, underwear rarely gets a second thought. For starters, April Masini, a relationship advice expert and columnist, seconds the commandment that underwear dos include throwing out the old. Once a month throw out any underwear that is unpresentable. Get rid of it. Link buying new underwear to something you already do on a schedule, so you get into the habit. Colors, fabrics, cuts, styles — have at least one pair of each.
Masini says that men, just like women, should choose cotton or synthetic blends for everyday wear and save the more luxurious silks and other fun fabrics for special occasions.
For the gym, Maurice Voce, the co-founder and chief marketing officer of skin care line Skin Authority, says that the newest synthetic blends are the way to go to prevent chaffing. The good news is there are so many athletic underwear choices at all price points. Also, never wear workout underwear more than once without washing them. This can be fun and feel great in the right circumstances, but our experts advise proceeding with caution.
However, dancing the night away first is going to have a sweaty outcome, which is not ideal. Also, linen trousers or shorts are going to reveal a little too much of your commando profile.
If you go commando, wear something that makes your underwear status your little secret revealed by choice, not visual impact. Guys, which style do you choose and why?
