What's up guys my name is Brock you're watching The Modest Man.
Today we'retalking about the five best underwear brands for men.
Okay so we wear underwearmore than any other article clothing and it also covers a very important part ofour bodies.
So I think it's crucial that you have underwear that you really loveand it's super comfortable.
I think that a lot of guys don't realize howcomfortable underwear can be, you know, I used to be in that group.
I used to buywhatever baggy cotton boxers I could find on sale on a multi pack at a departmentstore but once I discovered it the world of super comfortable underwear, you know,there's no going back.
But first of all what makes a great pair of underwear.
Ithink it comes down to two main things number one it has to be really, reallycomfortable it has to be soft, no chafing.
It doesn't ride up and number two it'sgot to be durable, you know, especially if I'm paying good money for a pair ofunderwear I don't want it to fall apart or stretch out or start to deteriorateafter a few wash cycles.
Now I've tried many many different underwear brands alot of the most popular brands some lesser-known manufacturers and I'venarrowed it down to my top five picks.
These are five specific pairs ofunderwear from five different brands with one honorable mention.
Quick notethis is not a sponsored video but I will link to all this underwear down in thedescription and if I have any promo codes I'll include those down there aswell.
Okay number one, the Lululemon no boxer boxers.
Now I know what you'rethinking isn't a Lululemon that plays for my girlfriend goes to get overpricedyoga pants? Yes, it is but I think they realized somewhere along the way thatthere are a bunch of guys waiting for their girlfriends to finish up shoppingand maybe they would like to buy something too.
So Lululemon actuallycreated one of the most comfortable and durable pairs of underwear that I'veever worn and actually I have to give my dad credit for finding these.
I thought Ihad the underwear game figured out and one year he, he got me a pair of thesefor Christmas and he said, you know, you have to try.
These the most comfortableunderwear I've ever worn.
So, I thought, okay I'll give him a shot and I got to say hewas right.
These are one of my favorite pairs.
They're made from lycra so it's avery dry, very soft fabric but it's not like MicroModal where it has a ton ofstretch.
It has a little bit of four-way stretch but not a whole lot really goodat wicking moisture you could definitely workout.
We go for a hike in these.
My only complaint about these is that, you know,they're not the best looking underwear in the world.
They're not ugly.
They'rejust compared to some of the other pics on my list they're just not remarkable,you know, but I don't know it's, it's a well rounded pair of underwear.
So ifyou're looking for something that's just, you know, durable, good for pretty muchany occasion definitely recommend Lululemon no boxer boxers.
Okay numbertwo, we have the Tani silk cut boxer briefs.
So if Lululemon is the laid-back girl next door and Tani is that lady at workthat kind of looks like a supermodel that you're pretty sure is out of yourleague but might have been flirting with you the other day.
These are justluxurious.
Okay they're they're knit in Europe they're made from MicroModalwhich is a softer and thinner than silk.
They also have 6% elastic woven inso plenty of four-way stretch and they're just super super comfy.
Well, whatreally sets Tani apart is how they look.
The only word I can really think of todescribe these is sexy and especially these printed ones.
They also have solidcolors but I think these prints are really nice.
They also make a trunkversion of this which is a slightly shorter but I prefer the boxer briefbecause I think it doesn't ride up as much.
What surprised me about these isthey're so soft and they're so thin that I kind of thought they wouldn't hold upwell but I've been wearing these for a couple of years pretty regularly andthey retain their shape but they haven't stretched out.
They've even retain theircolor so, you know, they're surprisingly durable for how luxurious they feel soif looks are a priority I highly recommend the Tanistill cut boxer briefs.
Okay next up, number three, we have MeUndies boxerbriefs.
So speaking of good looks beyond theseare also very good looking like the Tani boxer briefs they're made from ablend of MicroModal and elastane so very stretchy I'd say even more stretchythan than Tani.
Very comfortable, very good-looking I have noticed that theyrun a little bit small compared to other brands so keep that in mind.
If you'rebetween sizes you might want to size up.
Now listen these aren't as luxuriousas the Tani's but they're also about half the price so definitely a lot ofbang for your buck with MeUndies.
The other thing that I like about these isthey're available in a bunch of different colors from classic solidcolors to more saturated bold colors like this to crazy patterns like, youknow, tiger stripes and just for reference my actual waist measurement isabout 29 inches usually we're at 28 pants to accommodate for vanity sizingand these are size small they fit but I would not want them any tighter so therethey are noticeably a little smaller than the other brands but they haveplenty of stretch.
So like I said if you're in between sizes maybe size up.
Okay, number four, we have ExOfficio andspecifically the give-n-go boxer briefs.
Now as you can see these havesome wear and tear.
I've had these for years.
Actually first got these when Iwas going on a pretty intense hiking trip in Zion and Bryce national park Igot these from REI after hearing about them from Tim Ferriss.
Se swore by theExOfficio brand so I gave these a shot and he was right.
These are my go-tounderwear for travel by far.
So usually whenever I travel I bring two pairs ofthese and they served me really well because they're very dry, they wickmoisture they don't hold odor and they're very easy to clean, they dry sofast you can hand wash them in the sink and they're dry in like less than anhour you can put them back on.
These are nylon spandex blend so kind of likethe Lululemon underwear they have a little bit of four-way stretch but notas much as like Tani or MeUndies and also like the Lululemon underwear theseare not sexy, you know, they're not the best looking underwear in the world butthey're workhorses so I think if you're a traveler if you'd like to pack lightI'd highly recommend ExOfficio give-n-go box or briefs, you know, if you're goingon a big date maybe leave these at home and choose something else like MeUndiesor Tani.
Okay and number five, we have kind of a newcomer actuallyRibbedTee g2 cool nylon boxer briefs.
Now I've beenwearing RibbedTee undeshirts for years now.
Iknow the founder Mikel Schwarz.
I was pretty excited when they announced thatthey were launching an underwear line.
I actually helped Mike dial in themeasurements for the small size so they sent some samples over and I gotta saythe final product is amazing and these are different, I mean, you can probablytell like they even look different than some of the other offerings on the list.
They don't have that big elastic waistband.
They have this kind of hiddenblind hem waistband.
It's very minimal and it's super comfortable.
There's nopinching, it doesn't have like a sharp edge so it doesn't dig into your skin atall, there are no tags so nothing to, you know, cause any itching on your lowerback.
One thing I've noticed there are a little bit lower rise than some of theother brands on my list so, you know, just keep that in mind.
In terms of looks Iwould say that these are better than Lululemon or ExOfficio but they're notas handsome as MeUndies or Tani but I think they're super, super comfortableand just really well-made.
So definitely check them out.
Okay and then thehonorable mention is this pair from Saxx and I wanted to include these becausethere's this whole category of men's underwear that has basically extrasupport built in to the inside.
So as Saxx which is kind of this minimallining that sort of creates a pouch for your boys.
Now some underwear makers havebuilt their entire brand around this extra support.
For example, there's abrand called Sheath that has some pretty crazy pouch work going on.
They have thisone main pouch for your boys plural another smaller pouch for your boysingular and then even a little fly in the front so you can get in and outeasily.
Now personally I'm okay with the traditional pouchless underwear, youknow, I don't really need that extra support but some guys swear by it.
So, youknow, if it's something you might like definitely try it out.
I do keep this onepair of Saxx in my rotation just because I think they're prettygood-looking and they are pretty comfortable.
I like the minimal pouch but because they're so thin I've noticed thatthey're not quite as durable as other underwear and they're very soft so theytend to ride up a little more and there's definitely a risk of wedgiegoing on with these.
So these wouldn't be my first choice if I was gonna do likeyard work all day.
I might reach for these if I was going on a date the otherthing I do like is they they have extra small sizes.
So if you are a very smallguy you might want to check out Saxx.
Okay, so those are my top five pairs ofunderwear.
I hope that helps you decide which pair of underwear to buy and ifyou have any opinions if you've tried some underwear that wasn't on this listthat you really love definitely let me know down in the comments so I can trythem out and until next time.
