I grew up weaing tighty whities from Sears and changed to boxers when I was a teenager. Sometime in my 50's I switched to Jockey microfiber briefs. They are a lot more comfortable than boxers or tighty whities. I do a lot of cycling and boxers get real uncomfortable for that. The microfibers are lighter and breath better and are just more comfortable for everyday use. They are kind of expensive so I wait for sales and then stock up. What about you? Are you a traditional kind of guy or gal or have you switched to more performance based underwear?
