There are many fancy styles of underwear out there, and it's fun to try them all. After decades of wearing briefs, I tried boxers a year and half ago and was surprised that I actually didn't mind no support. I hate to be squashed in briefs now and prefer to hang loose. I like FTL regular boxers in the 55/45 blend fabric (better that the 100% cotton) for everyday wear. They are lightweight and cool, and the fly doesn't gap like cotton boxers. I like the way I look when wearing boxers instead of briefs, especially in mesh basketball shorts.
