How to Choose the Right Calvin Klein Underwear

Like if this guide is helpful

The average man wears the same type of underwear his father wore. If he is lucky, his dad wore Calvin Klein underwear. The American designer's line of men's boxers, briefs, trunks, and tight boxers gives men choices of vibrant colours and soft cotton, microfibre, or modal fabrics.


The Ever Popular Briefs

Briefs are consistently popular for good reasons. They are practical and comfortable undershorts that provide good support and stay in place. Men who work at desks for long hours do not have to worry about briefs bunching and riding up, and those who have physical jobs can count on briefs to stay in place. Calvin Klein briefs offer traditional cotton comfort in white or athletic grey. For men who prefer more daring briefs, low-rise Calvin Klein 365 briefs come with bright trims for contrast. Calvin Klein microfibre products include both briefs and tight boxers.


Two Types of Boxer Shorts

Boxer shorts fit loosely in the style commonly worn by older men or tightly in the style popular with the younger crowd. Loose boxers made from woven fabrics worked very well when trousers had a loose fit, but loose pants are no longer common. For many men, loose boxers end up a wrinkly, uncomfortable mess under trousers. Loose boxer shorts are still quite popular as sleepwear, however. Tight boxer shorts, also known as boxer briefs, provide good support and stay in place. They use stretchy knit fabrics that fit closely and do not wrinkle. Different cuts fit differently, and it is important to find the right fit for a particular build.


Variations on Tight Boxer Shorts

Many of Calvin Klein's tight boxer shorts are in the Calvin Klein trunks line. Calvin Klein low-rise trunks are similar in length to traditional boxers, but they have a lower rise. The Calvin Klein trunk shorty is a low-rise trunk with short legs, which is more comfortable for men with powerful legs that feel confined in longer legged trunks. Calvin Klein men's Steel underwear is a very short stretch boxer brief made of cotton and Lycra. This line is universally described as 'tight fitting', and men should confirm sizing based on the fit of other CK undergarments. Calvin Klein cotton stretch trunks are 95 per cent cotton for all-weather comfort and breathability. They come in a variety of lengths and rises so every man can choose the cotton stretch trunk that best suits his physique.
