By: Alfred Thomas

Men are not bothered about the way they dress. They don't prefer much attention. They find it very boring to buy underwear. They would tell their wife to buy the same type of underwear that they were wearing for years. They don't want to experiment. They are happy wearing the same style. There are very few men who would love to experiment with the new style. One style that most men prefer is boxers.

Most of the men are comfortable wearing this kind of undergarment. Boxers are very popular among today's men. They came into existence in 1944. Originally they were called boxer shorts, worn by professional boxers in the day. This style became famous in 1985 when English model and musician Nick Kamen appeared in a Levi's jeans ad wearing only a pair of white boxers. In the beginning, boxers had front closed. These front closures were either made with snaps or buttons. Today, most of the boxers have no front closure and come in a variety of colors and styles. This style is available in various fabrics. Some fabrics include cotton, polyster blends, Jersey knits, silk etc. This style is gaining popularity among 18 to 34 year old men. Being popular among young generation, designers have introduced their own label. Some of the famous labels are Joe Boxer, Calvin Klein, Hanes, Perry Ellis, Tommy Hilfiger, 2xist, Puma and Adam+Eve.

During 1980's, there was a debate as to which is better boxer or briefs. You can compare it based on certain factors. Most men claim that men's boxers are more comfortable than briefs. Briefs are available in different colors. Still boxer has an upper hand; there are various shades to choose from on the market, there are various patterns galore to suit your every need. Briefs tend to increase the temperature of the groin area which can affect a man's sperm count. Wearing boxers allows air to flow more smoothly through that region and helps to maintain body's temperature and sperm count. Most of the women regard men's boxers more sexy and appealing than briefs.
