When I switched from briefs to boxer shorts as a teenager, I loved the loose fit and freedom of movement. I wore boxer shorts for decades and thought boxers were the only way to go. I thought so, until I tried going commando. Boxers gave me freedom, but commando is much more comfortable. The advantages of going commando are: The extra feeling of freedom wearing only one layer; No elastic waistband riding up or riding down; No loose fabric getting caught between the butt cheeks: No bunching-up of fabric at the front due to sitting down and standing up; Less sticky/sweaty in warm weather or in over-heated buildings; and less laundry. I have been going commando full-time for 6 years now.
