    So, I run a small online store that retails men's underwear.

    I signed up on this site, to get input from some of the guys out there. I'm not going to promote my store here, but I'd like to hear from you guys what you'd like to see more of.

    dont give me crap like - lower prices... -save it.

    If you have particular styles or interests let me know...

    If you have a favorite fabric or cut...I'd love to hear from you.

    More advice with sizing. One brands sizing differs from another and it makes it hard to choose what size will fit best. I buy all my underwear online have been caught out by buying wrong sizing.

    thx Biggus - so true!

    Sizes on foreign brands seem to have different definitions for s,m,l,xl...

    I measure samples of everything I sell and post the dimensions.

    I'd say a big thing is if any underwear promotes a special pouch, to be very descriptive what is special about it. Pictures usually help the most.

    well considering you're on the LPSG, anything with a really good roomy pouch sounds good to me. most underwear I get doesn't have enough room for my cock and big low balls. Obviously brand, and some custom stuff from Hillcrest has been the only stuff that's truly comfortable.

    Material is so hard to describe, but I'm not a fan of the stretchy, licra(?) material. But again, I've also gotten some that were cotton, but were way too thick. AE boxer briefs seem to be the best. Those with a pouch would be the ultimate!!

    If you would, go ahead and pm me the link to your site.

    Thanks

    maybe some photos with regular guys in the underwear. not the usual posed and airbrushed pictures. its nice to see how they fit others.

    Thx Mark. Good point.
    I'm every bit as guilty as others shops out there...
    I always get the hottest bods I can find to promote our underwear.

    It isn't very helpful from a customer's point of view.
    thx

    The web site is "hillcrestswimwear.com" She cators to a niesch market but the design of the pouch is what makes the difference. I have a number of pieces from her and they are extremely comfortable (just rather expensive for everyday wear)

    Low rise briefs are my fav.

    Also, a nice pouch is a must. My opinion is that is the biggest advancement in mens underwear. I cannot stand underwear without a great pouch.

    Check out my underwear album for what I like and buy:

    no licra in underwear. HATE IT.
    Like for the boys to able to breath down there a little.
    Hate the "shrink wrap" feel that licra and other stretchy fabrics give.

    OBVIOUSLY for men, The pocket design. The only brand and range I buy now. If you could get something that has the package room as these do then your onto something. 99 percent of brands are un-wearable due to lack of room.

    Modal underwear. Full coverage. As simple a waistband as I can get.

    Thanks Darkbond,

    Modal? Are you referring to micro modal fabric mens underwear like these? What do you mean by full coverage? could you ellaborate?

    I like the features of the Andrew Christian online store. And their 100% satisfaction guarantee is great.

    I just bought my first few pairs of boxer briefs from the ck "x" line. So far so good. I own a number of pairs of pouch boxer briefs, and I have to agree with the posters above me that said they liked pouches. They are a great advancement.

    However, I do have a couple pair of pouch underwear (from both Aussiebum and Andrew Christian) that ride a bit too low for me. Mostly the problem is that they ride low in the back and the tag becomes a scratchy annoyance.
