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!

1410 Christian June 24, 2010 at 7:11 pm

Gotta go with boxers. Hands down.

1411 Charlie Rosenberg June 24, 2010 at 7:26 pm

Out of the two… Briefs… But I wear Boxer-Briefs.
I wore boxers for 22 years, but then got a desk job and had FAR too much pinching… if you know what I mean…

1412 Eric June 24, 2010 at 8:23 pm

Boxers most of the time, but if I’m working out legs that day, briefs.

1414 Michael June 24, 2010 at 8:36 pm

I’d choose boxers over briefs, but boxer-briefs (or trunks) are the way to go for sure.

1415 Andy June 24, 2010 at 8:56 pm

Boxer briefs, my boys need some structure.

1416 vince June 24, 2010 at 9:11 pm

Briefs for days , boxer for nights .

1422 Ryan Ransom June 24, 2010 at 11:10 pm

Boxer-briefs. The look of boxers, the support of briefs. Too much information?

1423 JJ Simpson June 24, 2010 at 11:22 pm

I am and always will be a boxers man.

1424 Isaac June 24, 2010 at 11:28 pm

Boxers, my good sirs, have always done me well.

1425 Jason June 24, 2010 at 11:29 pm

Boxers! Though a pair of pants with a button fly make either obsolete.

1426 mark m. June 24, 2010 at 11:36 pm

boxer briefs.. the best of both worlds

1427 Carter June 25, 2010 at 12:43 am

Without a doubt briefs. Only briefs give me the support I so sorely need.

1428 Michael June 25, 2010 at 12:56 am

1433 Jorge June 25, 2010 at 2:23 am

Well if it were up to me I’d go with Boxer-briefs because they’re comfortable and make your package look great but if I had to pick one I’d definitely go with Boxers, they let your junk breath.

1434 eli June 25, 2010 at 3:01 am

1435 Bram June 25, 2010 at 3:10 am

BOXERS!

1445 Jeff June 25, 2010 at 11:36 am

as many have pointed out, boxer briefs are more comfortable than either by themselves.

1446 steve June 25, 2010 at 11:48 am

boxers. If im actually boxing tho… boxer briefs. The bottoms of normal boxers show out of the bottom of my boxing trunks. That’s just tacky.

1447 Kevin June 25, 2010 at 11:54 am

I’ve got to go with briefs because I like knowing that, in the war against gravity, my scrotum has backup.

1448 David B. Appleton June 25, 2010 at 12:17 pm

Briefs, by golly.

1449 Robert Markovetz June 25, 2010 at 12:23 pm

Boxers are a Soldiers best friend. I have found them to be a lot cooler and more comfortable in the field than briefs. You have a more airy feeling than with tight briefs. Boxer briefs are pretty darn good too. They don’t go too far down you leg so they aren’t showing out of gym trunks, etc.

1450 Roger June 25, 2010 at 12:32 pm

Boxers. I like to hang.

1451 Russell June 25, 2010 at 12:33 pm

Boxers!!

1452 Ryan June 25, 2010 at 12:41 pm

boxers…

1453 Dan June 25, 2010 at 1:03 pm

Definitely boxers of the two, but quite often it’s boxer-briefs.

1454 Richard June 25, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Definitely boxer briefs, but of the two, boxers!

1455 Luis June 25, 2010 at 2:25 pm

I personally prefer boxers, but I remember distinctly as a child wearing exclusively briefs.

1456 Mike H June 25, 2010 at 2:30 pm

Boxers, sometimes boxer briefs

1457 jp June 25, 2010 at 2:43 pm

Boxers if I had to pick one or the other. (I prefer boxer-briefs)

1458 Matt C June 25, 2010 at 2:43 pm

Briefs!

1459 Brian June 25, 2010 at 2:56 pm

Got to love the boxers… But then again, on occasion, I like to step out of the box and go for the perfect medium between freedom and support… The Boxer/Brief….

1460 Kyle June 25, 2010 at 3:12 pm

Boxers, but I prefer boxer-briefs.

1461 Shane June 25, 2010 at 4:28 pm

Boxers, but I prefer the Boxer/Brief.

1462 Jim June 25, 2010 at 4:42 pm

Depends on how much support I need. Briefs if I’m doing something strenuous, otherwise boxers.

1463 Richard June 25, 2010 at 4:43 pm

Both plus boxer briefs

1464 Christopher Wiseman June 25, 2010 at 4:43 pm

Boxer-Briefs – Best of both worlds.

1465 John Polk June 25, 2010 at 5:06 pm

1468 kevin June 25, 2010 at 5:14 pm

1469 Diego Zacarias June 25, 2010 at 5:47 pm

Boxers!

1470 vipervsviper June 25, 2010 at 5:49 pm

Boxers provide freedom, a biit airy, but not ideal when going for a run or exercising
Briefs are a big tight, not long enough to help prevent chaffing while running
Boxer Briefs solve the problem

1471 Dan Williams June 25, 2010 at 7:15 pm

Briefs usually, I find boxers a bit uncomfortable.

1472 Scott VanHoogstraat June 25, 2010 at 7:30 pm

Boxer Briefs combo!

1473 Josh June 25, 2010 at 8:25 pm

Boxers!

1474 Jordan Kulahli June 25, 2010 at 8:46 pm

Boxer Briefs without question. Comfort of boxers with the security of briefs. What more could you ask for?

1475 Andrew June 25, 2010 at 9:31 pm

Boxers most definitely.

1476 Bill G. June 25, 2010 at 9:33 pm

I like my briefs.

1477 Fuad B. June 25, 2010 at 9:42 pm

Boxer briefs take the cake: comfortable and stylish. Plus, they conform to your body rather than looking like a skirt as boxers do.

1478 Damien M. June 25, 2010 at 9:55 pm

Boxer briefs, of course.

1479 David June 25, 2010 at 10:24 pm

Boxers.

1480 Ken Johnson June 25, 2010 at 10:57 pm

Started with briefs my first 40 years, Then, I switched to the more comfortable boxer-briefs for the next 20 years. Now, the lay unused in my drawer in favor of boxers … so, briefs? or boxers? Yes … when I wear them.

1481 Ken Johnson June 25, 2010 at 10:57 pm

Boxer briefs and boxers, depends on the situation and whichever one is on top in the drawer.
