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?

1Classic Calvin Klein Boxer Briefs In A Huge Assortment Of Bright Colors


Calvin Klein Men's Iron Strength Micro Boxer Brief, $16-$40, Amazon

Stylish, stretchy, and comfortable, these microfiber boxer briefs have a contoured pouch and two-tone waistband emblazoned with the Calvin Klein logo. Reviewers say the fabric is both smooth and cooling, but it's important to keep in mind these don't have an opening for guys to do their business quickly. Otherwise, the color selection is amazing, with 22 shades ranging from black to lime green to purple.

2Water-Repellant Microfiber Briefs In Splashy Colors And Designs


Mundo Unico Microfiber Briefs, $17-$23, Amazon

Who said briefs can't be cute and comfy? These microfiber underwear are made with stretchy, breathable microfiber cotton, have a thick and flexible waistband, and are even somewhat water repellent (making them great for workouts). If the man in your life loves splashy prints and vivid colors, these briefs offer quite the selection. But one reviewer warns to order up a size because they run small.

3A 4-Pack Of Transparent Mesh Boxer Briefs, Because Why Not?


Kayizu Mesh Transparent Boxer Brief, $19 (4 Pack), Amazon

These transparent mesh boxer briefs provide major ventilation (and, um, pretty much bare all) — but they’re surprisingly comfortable, thanks to their nylon and spandex construction. Each four pack comes with a few colors, and they’re both hand- and machine-washable. If you’re looking for something sexy that doesn’t leave anything to the imagination, this could be the four-pack to grab.

4High-End Designer Trunks Made Of Soft Jersey Cotton


Emporio Armani Men's Cotton Stretch Trunk, $13-$48, Amazon

Made of insanely comfortable cotton jersey and a stretchy microfiber waistband emblazoned with the brand's logo, these trunks by Emporio Armani are nice and short. You can order them in packs of one or two, in classic black and white. Reviewers say they fit like a glove and don't shrink in the wash, though you may want to order a size up, as many customers reported them being a little snug.

5Functional Boxer Briefs With HeatGear Fabric For Active Lifestyles


Under Armour Men's Original Series Boxerjock, $25-$60, Amazon

An active lifestyle is sexy, and a sexy pair of underwear, like these boxer briefs by Under Armour, are sexy by association. They look great on, but they're also functional: They're made with HeatGear fabric and moisture-wicking materials, as well as four-way stretch that provides total freedom of movement. These come in packs of two — and a sweet perk is that you can choose from more than 30 color combinations.
