For years and years, and centuries maybe, men have gifted women underwear and lingerie so hideous, they wouldn't wear it if their life depended on it. Rather than exact revenge, which we'd never do, here's our opportunity to right millions of wrongs: these sexy pairs of men's underwear make for amazing gifts you'll want to give — and the lucky man in your life will actually want to wear.
So, what's makes a pair of men's underwear sexy, anyway? It seems like the general consensus is that boxer briefs are the sexy standard. And they're even sexier when they come in a variety of vivid colors and patterns that take a guy out of his black-and-white comfort zone. But they're not the only underwear in town. When they fit well and are constructed from a quality fabric like cotton, briefs are one of several pairs of underwear to borrow from the boys and make your own. Of course, they're also comfortable for him and are great for holding everything together — but that added benefit of being able to steal them once in awhile is totally tempting.
No matter who you're shopping for, these five pairs of underwear, below, include everything from classic Calvin Klein boxer briefs to lime-green mesh boxers — because, why not?
