    Does any one have a recommendation on a brand of boxer briefs that hold their shape throughout the day? I have Hanes 100% cotton boxer briefs which lose their shape after a few hours of wearing. They look more like boxers than boxer briefs. I am very dissatisfied with them. Any recommendations will be appreciated.

    Try a more expensive brand, such as Calvin Klein, etc., and see if you get better fit, performance, wear, etc. I know I prefer the better brands to any of those like Hanes, FTL, ...

    I am a big fan of 2(x)ist. They can be a little expensive, but Target carries a line made by 2(x)ist known as Evolve which is more affordable. But really the brand doesn't make a difference as much as the materials. I find that the lycra/nylon/spandex material hold better.

    Agree with GQ1985 try buying a bit pricey brands. remember you after the Quality and they last longer than the cheaper brands in the long run it will pay for itself since there is no constant buyting for a new one or replacement.

    I also like Armani, CN2, 2Xst, name a few...some more than others. Quality is better than quantity when purchasing underwear. I saw a statement once that I adopted: It doesn't matter what your underwear looks like until thats all you are wearing. I've added how comfortable you are in them.

    I was a total a brief man until I tried boxers. Now I am a total boxer man. Reason being. I read that it better for a man to let himself hang freely. When you wear briefs your balls are keep to warm for too long a time. There are other good reasons to abandon the brief and go the boxer way. You could Google the subject to see a lot of other good reasons.
