|Trunks are an increasingly popular style of boxer briefs because they do so many things right. They offer all of the containment and support of briefs, the longer leg line of boxers and the added benefit of a body-hugging fit that's invisible under clothes. Shorter than typical boxer briefs, trunks won't show even under your skinniest jeans. Because they're such a fashion favorite, trunks are offered in virtually every style, fabric and color. |
Yes, purists can find trunks in cotton and cotton blends, but many brands also offer trunks in microfiber, which is a bit of a wonder fabric. Microfiber is an extremely elastic, thin fiber that has the added benefit of wicking moisture away from your skin, keeping you cool and dry. Often mixed with nylon, these fast-drying trunks come in lots of styles, including low-rise and contour pouch. Venture out of your comfort zone, with wild prints, plaids and colors, too. For the jock, microfiber trunks also come in styles with anti-microbial properties, a seamless seat and performance enhancing stretch.
