It’s an unimpeachable truth: Men need underwear. Anyone who says otherwise is an out of touch commando hipster who tries too hard to be cool. I tell you, there’s nothing cool with a pronounced crotch area whenever you get excited or having ‘frog eyes’ or worse, getting hernia because you let your equipment hang out there, dangling, left to their own devices when doing physically strenuous activities because you chose to go commando.
And those are just some of the benefits of wearing underwear. There are more practical and economic reasons. Wearing underwear saves you from washing your clothes often because it acts as the first protective layer that keeps sweat and body oils from staining your outer clothes—hence you don’t need to wash them everyday; saving you time and money. But yeah, you still have to wash and replace your undies daily for obvious reasons.
Men need underwear; we have established that without a shadow of a doubt. Now the next logical step is to find the best brands out there. Those that give you value for your money. So what are the criteria for choosing an underwear brand that suits you the best?
For us they are style, comfort and price. But the last criterion is quite tricky because not all expensive brands are great and not all inexpensive ones have inferior quality. Below are three of our favorite underwear brands in the market today that we think have met the criteria that we carefully set for underwear brands (in no particular order).

- Mack Weldon
With its smart design, exceptional fabrics and straightforward shopping options, Mack Weldon is some of the best underwear brands out there in our humble opinion. It’s style, innovation and comfort all rolled into one. The materials are made from the finest cotton with natural fibers so the products are durable but still feel great on the skin. Perhaps Mack Weldon’s best feature is its ‘Try on Guarantee’ option. If you purchased underwear and it doesn’t fit you right, they’ll send you another size, style or issue a refund. It’s a great feature because sometimes, you’ll never know for sure if the underwear really fits you until you try it on. Which just goes to show that this brand value their customers more than anything else.

It’s quite simply one of the most if not the most comfortable and high-performance underwear brand out there.
So there you go, three of our favorite underwear brands. There are a lot out there but I guarantee you, you’d be hard-pressed to find a brand that’s better than these three as far as performance, functionality and pricing are concerned.
