Boxer or Briefs? The Manpacks Giveaway

I’m a man!  I’ll fish in my skivvies if I damn well please.

If you’re like a lot of men, you’ve probably been wearing the same 5 sets of undergarments for the past 6 years. And they’re probably nasty looking. Your undershirts have layers of yellow sweat and deodorant stains in the pits, your underwear has holes, and your socks are threadbare.

Why do men let their underwear get like this? Well, in the long list of things that press on a man’s mind every day, their underwear’s condition probably doesn’t even crack the top 100. Nobody thinks about running to the store to buy some new undies. And it’s understandable. Most people won’t see your underclothes, so out of sight, out of mind.

If only there was a service that would mail you new underwear throughout the year so you don’t have to remember to buy a new set ever again.

Guess what? A service like that exists. It’s called Manpacks.

Manpacks is a subscription service that sends you a new set of socks, underwear, and undershirts every three months. You pick the plan and the style of underclothing you want and Manpacks will take care of the rest. For as little as $4 a month, you can receive a completely new set of undergarments at just the right time to replenish your supply. You’ll never have to make a run to the store to buy new undergarments again. For today’s busy man, it’s nice to have one less thing to worry about.

The Manpacks Giveaway

We’re giving away a one year Manpack subscription to one lucky Art of Manliness reader. They’ll receive 2 pairs of underwear, 2 shirts, and 2 pairs of socks every 3 months for the next year. No strings attached-it’s not one of those subscriptions that sneakily automatically renews itself. Just a whole year of new underwear delivered to your door. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post answering the age old question: boxers or briefs?

Deadline to enter is Monday, June 28, 2010 at 11PM CST.

We’ll select one random entry as the winner.

Everyone who enters the contest will receive a code for a $10 discount on any Manpacks package. So enter already! You only have $10 and fresh undies to gain!

both!

1302 Steve Masters June 23, 2010 at 7:08 pm

Boxer-briefs. The wife says the boys move around too much in boxers. And that show is reserved for her eyes only. So boxer-briefs it is. Maybe I’ll try some contoured trunks and free the boys up alittle.

1303 Dirty Hippie June 23, 2010 at 7:29 pm

Briefs

1304 Aaron June 23, 2010 at 7:30 pm

Boxer-Briefs…. but if I had to choose then boxers.

1305 captainmeta4 June 23, 2010 at 7:38 pm

Briefs. I prefer to not have my junk swinging around when I walk/run.

1306 John O'Malley June 23, 2010 at 7:44 pm

Used to be a boxer man, but have since gone to boxer-briefs.

1307 Keith R June 23, 2010 at 7:46 pm

boxers
they are cooler.

1308 James Strickland June 23, 2010 at 7:48 pm

Boxer-Briefs – if I wear any underwear at all.

1309 calvin Kwon June 23, 2010 at 7:49 pm

1315 Andrew June 23, 2010 at 9:06 pm

Boxers, unless working out then boxer-briefs.

1316 Nick June 23, 2010 at 9:36 pm

Generally boxers during the day, but I do use boxer briefs if I know I will be active, like at the gym, for example.
Classic question … but certainly and interesting giveaway!

1317 Ryan June 23, 2010 at 9:44 pm

Boxer briefs for sure. Tight enough to keep from riding up, but loose enough to hang free where it counts.

1318 Peter June 23, 2010 at 10:05 pm

boxers only because i feel more better walking around in themand because as i grew up i felt more manlier in them

1319 Jeff Boedeker June 23, 2010 at 10:08 pm

1322 Lance June 23, 2010 at 10:55 pm

1323 Nick June 23, 2010 at 10:59 pm

Boxers unless I’m doing something active – then boxer briefs

1324 Brendan June 23, 2010 at 11:00 pm

Boxers unless I’m wearing slim-fit pants, then I need the support of boxer briefs.

1325 Robert June 23, 2010 at 11:02 pm

Briefs! My boys need a house.

1326 Russell June 23, 2010 at 11:05 pm

Boxers, except when running.

1327 Michael June 23, 2010 at 11:14 pm

Boxers unless I need the extra support (biking, running, etc.)

1333 dg June 24, 2010 at 12:01 am

Boxers, just as God intended. I’m pretty sure that tidy-whities are the Devil’s work…

1337 Mike June 24, 2010 at 12:52 am

Briefs, trunks, boxer-briefs…anything but boxers!

1338 Dave K June 24, 2010 at 1:19 am

Boxer-briefs > boxers > briefs.

1339 Dan June 24, 2010 at 1:20 am

Is boxer-briefs too bipartisan?

1340 David June 24, 2010 at 1:21 am

Boxers haven’t owned briefs for 20 years.

1341 Clarence June 24, 2010 at 1:23 am

I wear both boxers and boxer-briefs.

1352 Aaron June 24, 2010 at 4:06 am

Briefs all the way.
I can’t stand it to have everything flopping around all the time, especially at the gym. Gotta have some support.

1353 Mister A June 24, 2010 at 4:08 am

Boxer Brief….

1354 KC Chase June 24, 2010 at 4:41 am

I originally wore briefs growing up, and then transitioned to boxers as I began to wear looser clothing. But, as an adult now, I enjoy the support of the briefs with the look of boxers. So…boxer-briefs! They are the best invention in underwear.

1355 Chris June 24, 2010 at 5:04 am

boxers any day

1356 Rich Haefner June 24, 2010 at 6:22 am

1358 Mason J. Newark June 24, 2010 at 7:23 am

Boxers, most definitely

1359 Fred June 24, 2010 at 7:34 am

Boxers–the only way to allow the scrotum to expand and contract in response to the ambient temperature. There’s a reason we’re designed this way, guys!

1360 Ben June 24, 2010 at 7:48 am

Boxers it is.

1361 Greg Brooks June 24, 2010 at 7:52 am

Boxer-briefs, of course. Only way to go!

1362 Francisco June 24, 2010 at 8:00 am

The ultimate hybrid….boxer-briefs! Yes…briefs are too tight, but boxers make me feel like Im freeballing!

1363 Tom June 24, 2010 at 8:22 am

1365 Michael R June 24, 2010 at 9:01 am

1366 JD June 24, 2010 at 9:29 am

Boxers

1367 Brian L. June 24, 2010 at 9:36 am

Boxer-briefs. The fit of briefs with the freedom of boxers.

1368 Sam Leopold June 24, 2010 at 9:57 am

Boxers or boxer-briefs

1369 jrt June 24, 2010 at 10:26 am

boxers, boxer briefs, and briefs all equally.

1370 J. James June 24, 2010 at 10:37 am

Boxer Briefs- the best of both worlds. Keep things together without having to resort to the tighty-whities.

1371 Patrick June 24, 2010 at 10:45 am

Boxers!

1372 Kieran Doyle June 24, 2010 at 10:51 am

1373 Jake Abbott June 24, 2010 at 11:02 am

1374 Dom June 24, 2010 at 11:27 am

Boxers, they’re as much freedom as you can get without wearing a dress.

1375 Kyle H. June 24, 2010 at 11:54 am

BoxerBriefs… All Day! (it’s important)

1376 Jeff June 24, 2010 at 12:11 pm

1378 Matt Y June 24, 2010 at 12:14 pm

—Boxers!

1379 Gary June 24, 2010 at 12:49 pm

Briefs just work better. Boxers tend to bunch up.

1380 Tito June 24, 2010 at 1:05 pm

Boxer-briefs are preferred, but definitely boxers over briefs.

1381 bigcityboy June 24, 2010 at 1:09 pm

boxerbriefs!

1382 Nicholas June 24, 2010 at 1:27 pm

Boxer Briefs are my personal choice, but when given the choice between the two, I prefer boxers unless I’m going running – then I’d have to go with briefs. I keep a few of every variation on hand for whatever occasion may arise.

1383 Rob.Morlock June 24, 2010 at 2:00 pm

this one is easy, BOXERS all the way.

1384 Derek June 24, 2010 at 2:03 pm

Boxer-briefs.

1385 Steve S June 24, 2010 at 2:16 pm

Absolutley boxers!

By the way, mom was right about wearing a clean pair in case you’re in a wreck. A month ago I was hit by a car while waking across a street. The EMTs cut my Wranglers off. I have gone without shorts some in the summer. I wouldn’t have wanted to have my jeans cut off in a ambulance and be “neckid” when I reach the hospital. :-)

1386 Visith Thepphasone June 24, 2010 at 2:24 pm

Boxers all the way, but one point of my life I went commando for a while…

1387 Chris June 24, 2010 at 2:28 pm

Of the choices given, briefs. I wear boxer-briefs, though.

1388 david June 24, 2010 at 2:29 pm

boxers, though boxer-briefs are preferred.

1389 Jonathan June 24, 2010 at 2:34 pm

Boxers usually, but briefs when the occasion calls for them!

1390 Sean June 24, 2010 at 2:49 pm

Count me in!
And boxers, definitely. I appreciate the freedom they provide.

1391 Glenn Maguire June 24, 2010 at 2:50 pm

briefs.

1392 Cory June 24, 2010 at 2:58 pm

I’m a “Uniform Man” and the pants are wool and tight–so I usually have to go with briefs…but my preference is always boxers

1393 Juan Cabrales June 24, 2010 at 3:05 pm

Boxers, I need some room to breath. :)

1394 John Sifferman June 24, 2010 at 3:19 pm

boxers or boxer-briefs for me

1395 Peter June 24, 2010 at 3:20 pm

1. briefs
2. boxer briefs
3. boxers

1396 Dillon June 24, 2010 at 3:36 pm

Well when just kicking it boxers, and when working out briefs. But most importantly they got to be clean.

1397 Phil June 24, 2010 at 3:53 pm

Boxers for days that are all play and fun, when work needs done, boxer-briefs give me the support for moving around all day.

1398 bgreen June 24, 2010 at 3:57 pm

Boxers

1399 Adam June 24, 2010 at 4:16 pm

Although boxers are good when wearing shorts or sleeping.

1400 Andrew June 24, 2010 at 4:27 pm
