Top 6 Men's Briefs - My Favorite Men's Briefs


If you like to wear briefs, don't wear the wrong kind. BVDs, Froot of Loom and the like are fine if you under the age of 16. So make a more informed and tasteful choice. I am man who is picky about his briefs and these are my favorites. Oh, and if you haven't already read my article What Does Your Underwear Say About You?, you might find it amusing.

I have been wearing the 2(x)ist brand for years. They are comfortable, they wash well and they last a long time. They are a great basic brief. If you like briefs, give them a try.

2. C-IN2 Kinetic Active Slip Brief

These cotton mesh briefs have an athletic look and provide a snug, supportive fit. The contour pouch is shaped to give a subtle boost in the front, which is always a bonus, especialy when wear especially when wearing some great jeans. These briefs have a wide waistband which hugs your body.

3. C-IN2 Bamboo Mesh Punt Brief

These briefs are constructed of a cotton and bamboo blend which is naturally moisture-wicking and deodorizing. Micro-perforations offer ventilation without being see-through and stretch rib leg bands prevent ride-up. I know guys who sware by the C-IN2 brand because they say they fit like a dream.

4. Emporio Armani Stretch Cotton Brief

These briefs are constructed of stretch cotton. I like a little stretch in my underwear since it holds its shape better and the color doesn't fade as quickly as 100% cotton.

5. Diesel Cotton Stretch Lukek Brief

If you want some briefs that are a little more hip, these will do you right. They are a little more expensive than most but worth it, especially for special occasions. I love them (I have a few pair myself) and they come in a variety of colors which is always a good thing.

6. Calvin Klein Body Brief

Calvin Klein underwear has come a long way since the time of Back to the Future. I own several pairs of these all cotton body conscious briefs and they make a great basic. They are comfy too.
