A Brief (or Boxer) Respite

“All manner of hybrids and contenders have emerged, from G-strings and banana slings to boxer briefs and tighty-non-whities. But the mavens of under-fashion still mostly align along the original poles: boxers versus briefs; feral versus domestic; low-rider comfort versus high-ball style. In recent years, that divide has gained an existential edge, with various studies suggesting that wearing tight-fitting underwear may be bad for the underwearer.” Perhaps it’s a bit strange that I’m leading with a story about the pros and cons of different types of men’s underwear. But, then again, the rest of the internet is leading with a story about Omarosa. And one can hardly accuse me of being low-brow when I am pulling quotes from The New Yorker on a Harvard Study (a combination that is about as tighty-whitey as you can get). So take a brief respite from brain-hammering news cycle and enjoy the kind of story that would have been viral before the troubles began. Science Has Resolved the Question of Boxers vs. Briefs.
