Start your day with the right foundations with the best men’s underwear at M&S

Why choose briefs?

A great pair of cotton briefs – also known as slips – could be the most versatile piece in your underwear collection. Made with plenty of elastane for a fitted look with good coverage on the front and back, men’s briefs are the ideal choice under tight clothing such as skinny jeans or summer shorts. Briefs are also ideal for wearing to the gym or under running kit as they fit close to the body, won’t move about while you work up a sweat and can help to avoid chafing. Here at M&S, we offer multipack men’s briefs in mini and midi shapes to suit your underwear preferences.

In praise of boxers

When it comes to choosing the perfect pair of boxers there are two routes to explore: firstly, the traditional boxer shorts and secondly the more modern boxer briefs. Boxer shorts are often made from a woven material with a loose fit at the thigh and an elasticated waistband. Boxer shorts sit well under loose fabrics such as lounge pants and joggers and are also ideal for sleeping. Boxer briefs are crafted with elastane offering a tighter, but not tight, fit on the thigh and bum making them great for everyday wear. They sit smoothly under straight-leg jeans and trousers without compromising on coverage.
