I tried it a few times when I was a teen, maybe because others were doing it, and it just didn't feel right. Wearing it with other undies underneath was just pointless, while wearing a lot didn't provide the same level of support. Plus they kept riding up/chafing me/or feel unnecessary. I have a few pairs of boxers that I just sleep in now.

I prefer boxer briefs or briefs, they're more comfortable. I don't even see loose boxer shorts as proper underwear. I mean people are free to wear what they want, but I wonder why they're so popular.

Knit boxers are better than all of these.

I wear them because they are loose feeling, but letting it hang can get me in trouble lol....and by that, I mean snagging my ******* on my work trucks seat or something. Commandos a no go because I never know what might happen to my pants. The crotch is usually the first place to go if the fabric is going to tear. Jeans also feel like sandpaper when going commando.

I have worn loose fitting boxers for years.

I started doing it when I first started my trade.

I was always blowing out the crotches and seats out of my carpenter jeans (uniform).

At least then you didn't have white tights showing for all to see.

The same as buttcrack or waist bands of white tights showing when you bend over and the waist shifts a little.

Much more comfortable, plus should you have to strip them off for whatever reason, you basically are wearing shorts underneath.

Say I saw a kid drowning in a pool or the lake.

Off the jeans go and in I go.

I already had to do that when I dropped my tiestrap off the back deck of my boat and into the lake just off the boat ramp.

I stripped down to my boxers and jumped in and swam to the bottom and got it. My Sister's boys laughed their asses off at their Uncle. lol Oh well boys, I got thast sucker back. The good ones are about $30. lol

Old habits die hard. Became used to boxer shorts at the age of 17, and that was a very long time ago, courtesy of the United States Navy boot camp, and have worn them ever since. Tried briefs and quickly discarded them, they were uncomfortable and, shall we say, felt very restrictive. Panty style undies fine for the gals, boxer short style for the guys is my take on the subject.

I guess some guys must like them, but I don't know how guys can wear those things, especially in a smoking hot climate. I don't like my junk hanging to begin with, but when things start sticking to... other things... ah, no thanks.

And wearing two pairs of underwear is just plain odd. That must be a privilege reserved for the people who wear their pants halfway down their ass with boxers flapping in the breeze.

I suspect they became popular before blue jeans were the normal daily attire of so many men. Boxers might be okay for other trousers, but definitely no good for jeans.
