Upgrade Your Undies with the Best Men’s Underwear You Can Buy Today

There’s a statistic floating around the internet that goes something like this: 9 percent of men own and continue to wear underwear that is at least 10 years old. For some of these men, this may be the longest and most intimate relationship they’ve had in their lives. On top of that, there’s another statistic stating that 32 percent of men seem to be fine with wearing the same underwear two or more days in a row.

Now, we’ll give you a pass on that decadeold “lucky pair” that you’ve had since your first high-school grand slam and which you were wearing when you won those Beer Olympics a few years ago, but no one (short of a survival situation), should ever wear the same pair of underwear for more than one day in a row.

So, ditch the decade old drawers, toss out those two-a-dayers, and get ready to seriously upgrade your underwear. We guarantee you’ll find something worth stripping down for.

Here’s our selection of the best underwear for men in 2018.
