We might be in the boxer brief era of underwear trends at the moment, but that’s no reason a gentleman can’t get adventurous.
For instance, these mini-stripe boxers from Jake Joseph might be worth defying a few trends. They’re designed after classic dress pants, with two snap-buttons to fasten at the waistline and single-needle stitching throughout.
The fabric is what you’re used to in a summerweight dress shirt, but more importantly, you won’t find any of the blousiness or excess fabric that dogged 90s-era boxers. These are high-cropped and trim in the legs—a boxer short for a boxer-brief era.
