Growing up in a home with lots of male siblings and also during the first decade of my sexually active life every male I ever encountered one boxer shorts.
This boxer shorts usually came in different patterns somewhere plaid others were tribes, and some even had surprising designs like cartoon characters and car logos. All of this gave me the mentality that whenever a guys trousers came up the next thing I would find would be boxer shorts underneath.
However, over the last few years, I discovered there had been an evolution in the world of men underwear. Sometime around 2005 the choice I noticed the lord of men made was the tight and white boxer shorts I guess that was just its phase.
Sometimes, especially when the person wearing that kind of boxer shorts is an alpha male and one that has a muscular physique it made me find the choice of underwear very charming and vulnerable. On the other hand for guys on the skinny side choice of boxer shorts could make them look a little boyish.
Around the year 2007, i noticed another swift shift from the white and tight boxer short to something a lot sexier. I can assure you that every single guy I have met or hooked up with ever since then has worn the same kind of underwear – the wonderful Calvin Klein boxer briefs in grey or black.
There are those who still preferred to go for the tight white kind of boxes and even some other funny looking ones, but I assure you that these guys still have a couple of Calvin Klein boxer shorts in their wardrobes.
I kid you not the prevalence of Calvin Klein boxer shorts is nothing close to being a bad thing, as a matter of fact, I love it. The fabric these boxer briefs are made of feels quite great and a lot laxer than regular cotton.
The tightness and ct of Calvin Klein boxer briefs look quite hot and seductive. They pretty much fit anyone well, and they allow you to see exactly what a guy is carrying in that area if you know what I mean.
Something else you get to notice is that their mum didn’t go boxer shopping for them lol.
But something I have been wondering is how the trend in men’s boxer short spread so quickly and almost everyone seems to be buying into it.
I guess its the same thing when he comes to women on the wear because I remember going through the thong phase and now it seems like almost every woman has found a place in the skimpy boy shorts territory.
The grooming of our lady parts these days goes through stages especially because of waxing rules at the moment. But even so, I really want to know if anyone someone telling guys what kind of boxer briefs to wear?
It was funny how I shot at the bar with a couple of friends, and we were talking about the new Calvin Klein boxer brief trend and the guys in our midst where all laughing and when I inquired what was funny about it, they all said they had one on.
