By Jake Joseph

From the essentials to indulgences, it seems that our shopping styles have shifted the past few years.  As the holiday time is upon us, many shoppers are on a mission to purchase items of both value & quality.

For every wallet size and fit preference, there are some terrific options out there.  Here is some information that may help you make great purchases for whomever is on your shopping list!

For those prefer STRETCH (BRIEF, TRUNK & BOXER BRIEF):

Look for: Modal and Viscose. (These fabrics are terrific and resilient, and long-lasting even after washing).

Helpful Tip: The leg binding is an important and often overlooked facet.  The bottoms of stretch pairs that are reinforced help the product from bunching up the leg and lend a more uniform fit.

For those who prefer BOXERS:

Look for: 100% Cotton and Pima. (The Pima’s are both breathable and contain some elasticity).

Helpful Tip: Each individual’s trunks (thigh area) are different in length and width.  Find a leg length that fits your body type the best.

BRANDS

BRIEFS:

Look for: Aussiebum and Zimmerli (Brands that stand out in this category)

Helpful Tip: Aussiebum produces modern briefs that have multi-colored and interesting designs (20 USD).  Zimmerli of Switzerland delivers an excellent brief that is understated in color and promotes a terrific fit (55-70 USD).

TRUNKS:

Look for: Calvin Klein’s Micro Modal Trunk and Perofil

Helpful Tip: If you want soft and breathable, go with Calvin Klein’s Micro Modal Trunk (20 USD).  If you want light-weight and comfortable, go with Perofil 4Ever Pima Cotton Pushup Trunk. They come in a bit shorter than normal trunks, providing comfort and an overall good fit (37 USD).
