Discreet enquiries reveal it to be true:
most of us have special-occasion underwear. Why so? What constitutes a second-rate day, and why prepare for one?
Named for the ease of movement required by pugilists, the boxer has been so called in the UK since at least the 1940s.
We favour the Boxer for several reasons. The way it complements a well-cut trouser; its benign effect on the gentleman’s reproductive equipment; its adaptability to waists (and indeed thighs) of all sizes.
Chief among these excellent reasons is because it lends itself to so many excellent fabrics.
