The Best Men's Underwear Brands On The MarketThere are over 200 brands of men’s underwear in the world today and it would be impossible for us to review them all in one article.  What we will focus on is some of the top brands that you will find on the market that has been tested time and time again.  Now if you don’t see an underwear company that you like on our list it doesn’t mean that it isn’t a quality pair of underwear.  If you are unsure of which underwear style that you would be interested in we recommend that you read the underwear styles guide first.

Before we look at the top picks we always recommend that you consider what makes a good brand.  Guys are loyal creatures and once they find a pair of underwear that is comfortable and lasts for a long period of time, we are hooked.  Now if on the other hand we buy a pair of underwear that doesn’t fit right or falls apart we will not only get rid of the product but tell everyone else how bad the product was.  So our guide consists of our most trustworthy brands and also some not so big names.

Top Underwear Brands on the Market

Calvin Klein Men's Underwear Brand

Calvin Klein Men’s Underwear:

We all saw this coming and is should be no surprise to anyone.  Calvin Klein has been around for decades and has been know for being a designer on the leading edge of men’s fashion.  Most men can remember the famous movie “Back to the Future” where there was a reference to Calvin Klein underwear that Marty McFly was wearing.  In today’s scene, you will find Calvin Klein making quality products and innovating new men’s fashion.  With the availability of new materials on styles/cuts we can’t recommend a specific type of underwear but advise men to go off of their preference.

Some of our favorites on the market are the Micro Modal Trunk and their boxer briefs.  You will find an assortment of styles from Calvin Klein including low-rise trunks, “Flexfit” boxer briefs, and hipster briefs.  Even though Calvin Klein does come at a higher cost than other men’s underwear we can justify why.  Most men are more than pleased with the quality underwear they have received and the many reviews on Amazon don’t lie.  We have not been disappointed yet over the many purchases we have made.


Jockey Men’s Underwear:

Jockey Men's Microfiber Performance Boxer Brief Known for creating the “y-front” briefs, Jockey is one of the top underwear designers on the market and has proved that time and time again with their underwear lines.  Jockey is famous for offering support when men need it and have multiple underwear lines out on the market.  You will find Modern, which is targeted for younger men but doesn’t have an age limit.  The Classic is for more of the laid back consumer who likes monochromatic colors and the classy y-front.  Sport uses newer fabrics that wick away sweat and are breathable.  Perfect for summer months and working out.

We are loving the Jockey men’s microfiber performance boxer brief.  If you haven’t tried a pair of microfiber underwear we urge you to pick up a pair.  Not only does microfiber wick away moisture, it feels like heaven against your skin.  The H-fly is great offering no annoying gaps and support for the berries.  Treated with an odor control technology, Jockey makes sure you smell good after your long day.  We feel that Jockey is on top of their game and recommend their underwear.

ExOfficio Men’s Underwear:

Now speaking of innovation, ExOfficio has created clothing that repels insects.  If you are traveling around the world this is a huge bonus.  The repellent is completely safe and is odorless which will protect you against mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges.  This alone can protect you from diseases that can be life-threatening.  The new Bugsaway technology clothing also includes UV block.  ExOfficio is leading the way and helping mankind.
