The Best Underwear for Men Is Worth Every Penny
GQ's Best Stuff is back with the foundation piece of every outfit,
whether you're at work or working out.

If you’re trying to build a great wardrobe, your first step needs to be finding the very best mens underwear for you. Underwear is the first thing you put on, the last thing you take off, and the one garment that gets closer than any other to your, uh, prized possession.
More than you know, the wrong pair could throw off your whole day—or worse, your whole fit. (Ain’t nobody got time for bunching!) It's for those very reasons that we firmly believe that guys (yes, you) should spend a few extra dollars for top-quality skivvies when re-upping their underwear drawers.
To put it in precious cargo terms, going budget on your underwear is like buying a car seat based solely on the lowest price (i.e. don't do that).
So break up with whatever shrink-wrapped eight-pack you've been buying, because proper underwear restock requires the good stuff. We're talking quality fibers that move with you whether you're shifting weight at a standing desk or going beast mode on some kettlebells. We're talking a cut that's both comfortable and flattering.
And we're talking about a design that won't raise an eyebrow in the locker room or when your third date goes really well. That might sound like a lot to look out for in a simple pair of undies—and it would be if we hadn't already done all the looking for you and settled on these nine unassailable pairs for every taste and body type.
The Best Doesn't-Feel-Like-Underwear Underwear
If lightweight underwear is your thing, then these trunks are for you. Tani is in the business of underwear innovation and coming up with new ways to make underwear that feels like you're not wearing underwear. These trunks are crafted out Micro Modal AIR, which, as the name suggests, is an extremely lightweight fiber made from beechwood and mixed with a healthy bit of stretch elastane (13%). The result is underwear that's smoother and silkier than our top pick, but less of an all-purpose workhorse. The semi-synthetic blend is also the reason these trunks don't have any hems at the thighs; the fabric can be cut without fraying, so the leg openings lay flat (flatter than any other pair on this list).
