Okay, I'm not a guy and never been one. But I have a 13 year old son with a dilemma. He says the guys at school are making fun of him for wearing briefs (this is in gym class, he doesn't normally flash his undies).
Do guys really do things like this? I didn't think guys cared about clothes and stuff. 
And so I took him out and discovered there are TONS of different types of undies for guys. Boxers, briefs, boxer briefs, bikini, you name it. 
What can I safely buy a 13 year old to spare him embarrassment.

And more importantly, how the heck do guys feel comfy in boxers????

IDK my DH quit wearing boxers a long time ago.  He was tired of his nuts getting squished all the time.  Now he wears briefs.

Both my boys wear boxer briefs.  Whitey tighties are bound to get him made fun of.

Most guys prefer boxers or boxer briefs at least & yes guys give each other shit over all kinds of things. This is one of them, and one of the things to look forward to when a kid enters a school with locker rooms for the first time. (middle or hs)

Boxers or boxer briefs are ur best bet. Briefs are usually seen as childish at that age

My 4yo wears boxer briefs, he prefers the look I think. Just take ds out and let him pick. Boys his age will look for anything to tease someone about. If it's something's this easy to fix/change then do it.
