What Is The Deal With Boxers In The United States?

Tue Sep 09, 2008 11:10 pm

Okay, this may sound like a weird question but I have wondered it for many years. In the United States, especially in the suburban United States, as I have noticed, about 95% of boys and men wear boxers. And, they are usually really trashy ones with stupid patterns and what not. And, I never wanted to wear them because for one, they are not comfortable, and two, I just did not feel right in them. Everything seemed different in them. I felt sort of...unclassy and out of place. They didn't "support" my type of lifestyle. However, here, boxers seem to be the only accepted form of underwear in schools.

Guys obsess about them here. It is not just underwear it seems like. They always make comments on them and they seem to really care if you don't wear them. I evne know a grown adult who talks about them and when he found out I didn't wear them, he thought that there was something wrong. Guys love to wear them over their pants here sometimes (if they can), and I remember how guys used to talk about them in middle school a lot too. And girls always comment on the patterns and designs on them. It is not even a fashion statement, I can't explain it.

My real question is, why did this all start and why only in the United States? I know that in Canada and UK and Ireland they are popular, but it is not like a wear them or die situation. As I can tell, it is more about preference there. However, it seems like in all other countries they are worn, but in no way does it reflect the culture and society of the country. It is just underwear. But here, it is like an obsession. People snicker when they say the word and guys just love to have them puff out and I just don't get it. I would not fault anyone on this site as it is just personal preference, but does anybody else notice this?

I just wish that I didn't feel so scared wearing them. I remember I used to get points off from gym just so I didn't have to change. What ever happened to just wearing underwear?

I have to say that I do not suffer from boxerphobia. I agree that they may not be as supportive as the brief type of underpants but I am not fearful of the dangle angle.

Have you tried the oh so nifty boxer-briefs as they have the support you may like with a bit of the boxer profile that it appears is popular in your area.

it does appear that the boxer mania that is spreading throughout the land is in fact a fashion statement. It is the look, the patterns that the young whippersnappers crave as a symbol of being an individual (even if it means if you have to wear the same thing as everyone else to be an individual.

wear what YOU want, wear what makes you happy. If others do not like too bad, this is about you

Personally, I cannot tolerate me wearing the boxers. They cause problems with....well lets call it my theme park.  rotfl  I wear the briefs (not boxer briefs) 100% of the time. They give me the support I need without my theme park having to swell up.

Good riddance on boxers. They suck!  no

Exactly what Im thinking. Youre embarassed over... Underwear? Trust me there are plenty more things that you should be concerned with. Underwear should sit somewhere near "Will acid rain eat my flesh today"

That said. Im a fan of boxers. Not of the dumb kind with beer or cartoon characters. But the kind that come in a 3 pack at Wal Mart, lol. That said, I recently tried boxer briefs, and dear god they were amazing.

I've been wearing boxers for a number of years, and will not wear tighty whiteys and also find boxer briefs to be too snug for my tastes. I threw out my last pair of tighty whiteys about 10 years or so back. I admit that it took some time to get used to the dangle. The majority of my boxers are plaid boxers; I've avoided getting cartoon character and silly patterned ones as much as possible as I see those as childish (Currently I had one pair with some Irish flag shamrocks and another pair with some regal looking lions holding beer mugs, both of which I got because the two of them cost less than a two pack of regular boxers.)

The trend of folks wearing boxers is just that, a trend. A few years back, the boxer briefs was the trendy choice; a few years from now, jockey shorts or bikini briefs could be the trend.

From being in many changing rooms over the years, from knowing a lot of people from cities and it seems that boxer-briefs and briefs are much more popular in more urban areas in the United States, from knowing about 2000 guys in my life and at some point noticing what type of underwear they wear, and lastly, having all sorts of pressure and influence about boxers surround me from a lot of the time. I remember once when I "forgot" my bathing suit for swimming, one of my classmates said to me, "Why don't you just wear your boxers?" and times that by one hundred different times. I just really want to know why this only happens here! Yeah, a lot of guys wear them throughout in different countries but it is more preference rather than pressure.

Honestly, I just wish that underwear were a non-issue. Yes, I think buying Abercrombie or American Eagle boxers is kind of...trashy, but I would not care if it just didn't make a difference. I just always have to hear little tid bits and things about guy's boxers about how cute they are, or how people wear them. Why do you think girls are obsessed with wearing them now? Honestly it seems that in the US, it is not just underwear. Even on websites like Vineyard Vines, they say things about how all boys should wear boxers (I don't know if it's there right now), and there is just something that people find amusing about them. Some US brands don't even sell briefs or boxer briefs. J Crew has a kids line for 5-10 year olds and there are no briefs! Same with Vineyard Vines!

And also, it is not like in Europe or anywhere else guys don't wear them at all. I have noticed some who do but it is not such a huge deal over there. And also, I really think it shows that when you don't have mainstream society press on you what type of underwear you should wear, most go for the time tested classic of briefs or boxer briefs, as they are actual underwear!

It's underwear, this is not an extraordinary rendition debate.

You can find briefs just about anywhere, maybe not at a undie specialty store but virtually anywhere else

I nominate SkyGirl for modeling in them and advertising her pictures here. That would definitely improve sales and possibly attract a larger female audience once they see another female in nerdy underwear. (Wishful thinking)

Anyways...  duck 

Worn briefs pretty much all my life. Tried boxers, bikinis, and other stuff, and I keep going back to briefs. I just wish they didn't look like diapers.

So far the only reasonable alternative I've found are trunks, the modal-fabric ones from Calvin Klein specifically. Picture a boxer brief but a lot shorter and with a nice pouch for support. I'm considering switching to all these, they are waaaay better looking (my ex loved them) and pretty comfy, problem is that modal fabric doesn't breathe too well and they're expensive, about $18 each.

Also, I've done a poll amongst my female friends, they all agree that boxer briefs are a turn off, for whatever reason they love boxers. But when I remind them of the existence of trunks, they prefer those over boxers. Go figure.

Thats why I currently use my trunks on "special occasions"  cool

The people that do not wear boxers usually fit in this category: Liberals, Hybrid Drivers, Treehuggers, Gay People, People who suck at sports, little children, old people, single guys who couldnt score a date with Janet Reno, people who think they are fashion models from GQ but in reality nowhere close (synonym with gay guys)

Europeans (minus the islands) dont wear boxers not because of choice, but because they havent discovered clothing which does not cling to you and smash your area like a crazy Mexican girlfriend aftter you just told her you cheated on her with her best friend (Not speaking from personal experience, but from observations)

Did I mention people who say "people who"

Let me compose a list of people who wear tighty whiteys and boxer briefs:

-Vegetarians
-Gay guys
-Single men
-People who drive in mid-level sedans and minivans with Support Our XXXXX ribbons
-People who bay by check anywhere where VISA is accepted
-People who are shocked to pay tolls
-People who call the wrong number and dont believe it to be so.
-People who mount toilet roll in the under position
-People who wear glasses when they can wear contacts
-People who wait in the loading zone
-Liberals
-Treehuggers
-Hybrid Drivers
-Quasi Gay GQ guys
-Mainland Europeans and like to package their nuts like they are packaging meat in a vacuum container.
-Old people (they are forgiven for doing so)
-Little people (boxers might not fit them)
-Children (forgiven)
-People who eat that HealthyChoice cereal nonsense instead of Capt Crunch (Youre also a communist if you dont eat Cap'n Crunch which is the symbol of freedom and capitalism)
-People who bring laptops to Starbucks, I hate the snug bastards
-People who hold any kind of store credit card where the store is located at the mall (except jewelry stores for guys who need to finance their womans stupidily expensive jewelry)
-Manchester United fans/Chelsea fans and soon to be ManCity fanboys
-Guys who fill up their cars with 93 when only 87 is needed. Nancy boys.
-Anyone that has ever spent more than 15 seconds watching HGTV (Except if your Bob Villa)
-The same people who wear tighty whiteys dont like Taco Bell when theyre drunk at 2am and ruin it for everyone that wants to go on this quest for the holy grail that presents itself in the form of a Chicken Quesedilla
-The same people who wear these outrageous undergarnments drink those Smirnoff Ice Drinks with their GQ boyfriends.
-People who wear boxer-briefs are the same people I encounter at the gas station who fill their car up and then leave it there and go inside when theres a line and we all must wait for them to fix their boxer briefs which have already taken away their manliness.
-People who wear tighty whiteys are also believed by me to not move into the middle of the intersection which gives me road roage.
-People who wear tighty whiteys dont like Bob Seager - Like a Rock and Shakedown (ie: Commies)
-People who wear tighty whiteys are the same people who use anything but google for their default search engine because they want to make some stupid statement.
-Anyone who eats salad for lunch is surely a tightey whitey user.
-People who dont swim wear tighty whitey, because if you swam youd always be prepared to use your boxers in the event you must swim in the vincinity of other men and trunks are not available.
-Guys who own a cookbook own tightey whiteys
-Men who do not know how to hookup their HDTV or Cable Box/DVR are users of tightey whiteys. Therefore by default they are not men, and usually hold quasi-gay professions such as magicians.
-Men with high voices are offenders. Annoying, and such a voice could only come from sticking an object up there, or having continous wedgies from briefs.
-Automatically any male drinking Non Alcoholic Beer wears briefs. Whats that, youre 8 and you live in America? Run away to Mexico.
-Hillary voters wear briefs, they must because real men wear boxers. And real men vote for guns, big power, big money not nancying around and hugging trees.
-People who think they have fast cars and they are FWD.
-People who dont fear chuck norris. Actually, no...no such people exist.
-People who avoid tolls because they are cheap bastards. Go to hell all of you.
-Brief offenders drink Cran-Apple juice...what is that stupid concoction. No one who is a man supports any part of the Wisconsin economy. Real men live in the land of Lincoln, not the land of LaFollet FFS.
-The French, you wear briefs. No one likes you, my point proven. Fine, want to know more? You wear briefs in order to take them off and use them as a Surrender flag, while manly Americans take their boxers off and use their pattern as the American flag that has just liberated your candy asses.
-The Germans, you wear briefs. Its just your nature, no wonder youre so uptight and humorless. Id be too if my nuts had to be squeezed into that.
-Men in America who know who Canadas prime minister is and are not Canadian. No one cares about the Canadians, and surely if you care enough to go out of your away in America and buy briefs you also care about the little toothpicks that are of different colors and you also go to Linens and Things and Bed Bath and Beyond. Those 2 stores compose the axis-of evil of all stores that are in the vincinity of big malls but never in them directly thus dragging you with the power of your woman to leave that delicious parking space right by the entrance of Craftsman section of Sears and navigate the terrifying waters of the mall parking lots that are filled with runaway mercinaries (read Asian women in Asian cars).
-You wear briefs if you organize your various power cables from your electronics
-You wear briefs if you dont like to grill.
-You wear breifs if you drink anything below 2% milk and have no medical reason to do so.
Capt. Crunch doesnt approve of 1% or that watered down commie crap called Skim Milk. Capt. Crunch also does not appreciate being put into those carrying baskets in supermarkets. Real men wear boxers, and thus real men do not go to supermarkets just to buy a couple of things, they use the biggest shopping cart in order to stack the massive bags of grill charcoal, USDA Grade A Beef, Beer, Chicken and Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce.
-You wear briefs and you suck if you go to shop at any place thats called "XXX Shoppes" or "Old Towne". You dont buy boxers at such locations, and neither can you get 100ft coax cables in order to hookup your plasma in your garage. Briefland.
-You wear boxer briefs if you drive a Scion. Both contraptions are small and worthless.
-You wear briefs if you drink bottled water in any place where dysentry is not imminent, why? Why the hell dont you just go to your damn sink and get a cup for free.
-You wear briefs if you go Wal-Greens and get Benadryl and not Wal-Dryl. Its the same thing, and with the money spent you can go buy a set of ratchets...or better yet a leafblower.
-You wear briefs if you dont know how to change your oil. Why? Because you are afraid to dirty up those briefs, whereas real men in boxers dont care and after they are dont they wont look like they just crapped their pants as they material isnt white like a womans tampon.
-Men who wear briefs have Apple Computer stickers on their stupid Subarus. The stickers are of course white.
-Men who dyed their hair wear briefs, the only exception is to disguise in order to execute a hit on your ex-wife who threw away your trusty pair of boxers that accompanied you on every oil change since 1976.
-Men who ask "Whats the warranty is on this thing?" (Except cars) are brief users. Who the hell cares if this breaks. If youre a man you will buy another Mainstays Iron from Wal-Mart that costs $15. If you buy irons that are more expensive than DVD Box Sets of Chuck Norris Movies you are a communist and a brief user.
-Brief users use sticky notes.
-If you use the office assistant in MS Office you wear tightey whiteys. How Do I know? You obviously have no friends because you wear briefs, so your only friend is a bicycle/cyclops guy who tells you where you should indent and if you need help with your commas.
-Anyone who fills up with 89 grade gas is a tighty whitey offender.
-Klaus wears tighty whiteys, he fits at least 3 categories: Apple sticker dude, German and someone who uses baskets in super markets.
-Anyone who takes the bus in the USA to be green is a fool, and a brief wearer.
-Men who play tennis wear briefs, real men dont play sports that Sharapova, Kournikova, Kuznetsova play. Men play sports that are featured on ESPNS great outdoor games. Chainsaw competitions, ATV motorsports, knife games and water log runs. Ever see a lumberjack in briefs? No, and lumberjacks are the manliest of men who wear boxers.
-If you dont like dirty jobs then you wear briefs.
-If you wear berets you wear briefs
-If you drive any French car and are not in France you wear breifs. With the exception of the very manly Peugeot 405 (and all 4 series), it has earned the respect of the boxers running away from the law in a series of quests featured in the Taxi movies.
-If you eat Tomato Bread you are a brief wearer.
-If your woman refuses to get you a beer you are a brief wearer (exception if youre married)
-If your favorite night life destinations are San Francisco, Key West and Sydney...surely you wear briefs.
-When someone asks you who your role model is, you answer Captain Underpants. Image: .

No one is the Captain (Not even Captain Planet) except Cap'n Crunch you damn fools.

Interesting topic.

Kinda

1. Living in the Northwest, no one ever talks about their underthings. Guys always show off their boxers. They show WAY too damn much. It is always the wrong part that shows. Buy a frekin' belt! Old Navy has them for like $5! Sheesh! They do not require a masters degree to figure out!

2. (and not for the squemish) I go anywhere from commando to boxers and anything in between. If anyone cares what I am wearing under there, they can simply ask. Otherwise, it is none of their business.

Boxer-briefs are the way to go.

My real question is, why did this all start and why only in the United States?

I mean, most guys in my high school in Michigan wore boxers, including me (after about 9th grade) but nobody ever said anything about it.

Quoting LOT767-300ER (Reply 36):
Let me compose a list of people who wear tighty whiteys and boxer briefs:

 roftl  Bored much, LOT7673?  duck 

And then about age 26, after I came out, someone gave me a pair of Calvin Klein 100% cotton boxer briefs. And I was skeptical. And then I put them on. They were GREAT. I felt comfortable AND they made me feel somehow sexier. In fact, I got laid that day. Coincidence?

Right, then...

Well. They also happen to be more comfortable (in my opinion).

Ask my girlfriend - I'm not trendy at all. In fact, I waited longer than most people to make the switch out of sheer laziness. I don't go clothes shopping very often.

I've been wearing boxers long before the trend. I haven't worn tighty whiteys in well over a decade. The thing is that if you wear something long enough, it will eventually become trendy.

I never understood the point of boxers...you might as well go commando, which is cheaper and more fun anyway. Sleeping in boxers, or wearing nothing but boxers is fine too, but boxers+pants or boxers+shorts makes no sense. That said, whenever I sat across from attractive guys wearing boxers + shorts my day got a little better Silly

Anyone who drinks tea except when they are so ill they are coughing up a lung wears briefs.
Anyone who drinks coffee except between the times of 4-7am when navigating to work or school is also a brief offender.

The people that do not wear boxers usually fit in this category: Liberals, Hybrid Drivers, Treehuggers, Gay People, People who suck at sports, little children, old people, single guys who couldnt score a date with Janet Reno, people who think they are fashion models from GQ but in reality nowhere close (synonym with gay guys)

I fit into at least 3 of those categories - and I *do* wear boxers. Actually because I think they're comfortable. I just hate briefs. Apparently I'm the opposite of everyone else  Smile

And no, I don't wear them because of fashion. A question to the original poster: how in the world would I know what underwear other people wear? Do I ask them to strip to have a look?  rotfl  I mean seriously, it's just something you don't know, unless you're having a pijama party...
