Underwear Style Guide For Men

Underwear Style Guide For Men

Every style of underwear lends itself to different uses and occasions. Use this guide to update your drawers with multiple styles best-suited for you.

Underwear for men can be way more exciting than just a classic white brief. While this option is a necessity, you have so many more styles to explore and discover. The experts at Tani USA have gathered the underwear styles we believe every man should know about, to enhance their comfort, fit, and concealment.


Trunk-style mens underwear is similar to a boxer brief but has shorter legs and a square-cut silhouette. Trunks usually have a body-hugging fit and can be worn comfortably with just about anything.

Boxer Short

Boxers for men offer breathability and the freedom of movement due to a longer leg, and a relaxed or tailored fit. Wear loose-fitting boxer shorts with any outfit, and try a slimmer boxer silhouette with dress pants.

Boxer Brief

A cross between a brief and a boxer, the men’s boxer brief underwear has the long leg of a boxer, with the slim fit of a brief. This style is quite versatile and can be worn with jeans, dress pants, or even workout clothes.



This classic, standard style is made for support and comfort. The back of a brief offers full coverage, while the front has the upper thigh exposed. Don’t mistake a men’s brief underwear for “tighty-whiteys”-- they come in trendy prints and colors, too!


A man’s bikini underwear distinguishes itself from the brief because it has a low-cut waist, high-cut leg, and narrow sides. This is one of the most popular styles, and in many cultures, it is even the preferred form of swimwear.


Jockstraps underwear are made for men to provide support and protection during high-impact sports. They have full frontal coverage and minimal rear coverage. Jockstraps are constructed with two leg straps that wrap around to your rear for additional support.
