Getting In Your Boxerbriefs

Hey guys, Chandler here again. Today I'm going to write a bit about boxer briefs or BBS for short. BBS have come a long way in the past few years. Once a symbol of gay culture, they have quickly come into the main stream. I'll be the first to admit I am a sucker for a good pair of BBS. It's underwear perfected in my opinion; the support of a brief, the breathability of boxers, and an unquestionable sexiness that is all their own. Who wouldn't love a pair of boxer briefs?
To find how out how boxer briefs have become so popular it is important that we start at the beginning with the basic concept behind the boxer brief. Here is a short history of the boxer brief from Wikipedia:

Boxer briefs were first sold around 1990. Prior to this time, only a few underwear manufacturers made boxer briefs, but they were actually called mid-length briefs or thigh-length briefs.

The underwear preference among many teens today is leaning toward boxer briefs, probably because of their likeness to both briefs and boxer shorts. While some may find regular briefs too restrictive others may find boxer shorts too loose. A pouch or 'over sized' pouch may be built in to add space and position the testicles forward. Boxer briefs are commonly used in sports instead of, or in addition to a jock but are common for everyday usage as well. The boxer brief design provides form-fitting coverage for the midsection from the waist to the thighs and are worn on the waist. Boxer brief designs can have either an access flap, button (snap) front, pouch, or no fly at all.
So it is easy to see why the boxer brief has become so popular, not only is it stylish, it is incredibly comfortable. With this recent rise in popularity I've got to noticing the underwear choices of my friends and the men I see out in public. Many of my friends have switched from traditional boxers to boxer briefs. I have several friends who, like me, prefer slim fit jeans. It is rather uncomfortable and impractical to wear boxers with ass hugging jeans, so like me they have switched to boxer briefs. Many of the men I see have switched too. Brands like Fruit of the Loom and Hanes are the most common that I see among the 30's crowd, but with the guys my age (16-20) we can be seen in Abercrombie and Fitch or American Eagle boxer briefs.

I suppose it would be helpful if I told you why I switched to boxer briefs. I still love my jocks, they are my favorite style to wear, but boxer briefs come in a close second. I switched from boxers to boxer briefs simply because I found that I wanted the support that I could get with a brief, but I still wanted the freedom that I got from boxers, so the boxer brief was the perfect solution. And my balls and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I love boxer briefs as well, but I wanted to see if anyone else was with me on one point.

I'll only buy boxer briefs with 5%+ spandex in them, because I've had it with 100% cotton. I have soccer thighs, and I consistently find the legs holes riding up or just looking plain awkward.
