The problem that ExOfficio has is that each color of these things has their own unique fit and feel. It's enough of an issue that I am writing about it after buying maybe 4-5 dozen of these, of various colors, over the last decade +.
For those coming from cotton underwear, these are a game changer. No more leaving the gym with heavy, sweat soaked calvin kleins. No more hot summer hikes where, at the completion of your journey, your sweaty undies are 4 sizes bigger than when you started. That's all done. After trying these out, you will never go back- never. They are that good. They last forever. They air dry in ridiculously fast (if you roll them in a towel to squeeze the water out 1st) and they look great.
If you are a repeat customer of the brand, and you have tried different colors of these things, you have to be shaking your head like I am. Where is the consistency?
Long ago I decided that black was the color for me. I preferred them to the light grey ones because they stayed noticeably tighter after a gym workout than their grey counterparts. The old royal blue ones were for hockey because they were over an inch longer in the thigh than either the black of the grey and had a very different feel/fit. YET THESE WERE ALL THE SAME SIZE!!!! Why the variation though?
Fast forward to last week when I realized it's time for another dozen or so new pairs. I figured I would check Amazon, mainly to compare prices. In my haste, I mistakenly ordered the curfew (which is navy blue). On the website, they looked black so I pulled the trigger on 2 pairs. As an aside, Why the eff can't they just call them NAVY? Only the marketing geniuses @ OSG really know (or don't). That sort of nomenclature tomfoolery is tantamount to idiot parents who name their kid Mike, but they spell it as "Mi7ke" - with the 7 being silent. It's a total hardo move (says the guy with a user name of d0c <---- but that's only a screen name and the it's pretty clear @ that). Ok, back to the new navy ones - I didn't even know they were navy until I ordered 10 more pairs of black a few days later. No I can see the difference. Sadly, I can FEEL the difference too.
The curfew fabric feels WAY better to me than the black. The fabric is smoother on the skin. This is undeniable. The criss-cross cut on the black is much more palpable than its curfew counterpart. Black is less silky to the touch.
They wear differently as well. Same size on the label though. The navy ones are comfortably snug through the thigh and a bit looser in the crotch, whereas the black are tighter in the thigh and crotch. To me, the fit of the curfew is what a boxer brief should be; they stay in place on the thigh to keep my thighs from rubbing, yet they offer more swing room in the crotch, allowing my male anatomy to not be pressed against my body.
Luckily I only opened one pair of the black, so 9 will be returned and replaced with navy/curfew. But the difference is HUGE HUGE HUGE, and I don't understand why. If Budweiser can make (in my opinion crappy, but consistent) beer that tastes EXACTLY the same in different parts of the country, using ridiculously different water supplies, shouldn’t we be at a point where underwear of different color would feel and wear the same? Consistency is the key here, or @ least it should be.
Now, the Amazon pricing ... I feel like I need to check this like a day trader, because the price per pair on these has varied by over $5 (in the wrong direction) over the last week. I would like to replace the black with cur7few (see what I did there?), but @ the current prices, I could go brick and mortar and break even. Ughhh.
ExOfficio Men's Give-N-Go Boxer Brief, Curfew, X-Large
- I am about 200 lbs, 5'10" (so not small, not huge), 34 waist. I wear the medium size and it fits perfect in black, slightly tight in the colors
- Other brands I've used are more restricting than these are. These are made of a flexible hybrid material that is not like spandex. The space around the groin is much more roomy, while the thighs are perfectly tight.
- These never ride up on me, and pretty much everything else does.
- I wear them daily, for both office job and athletic activity.
- I've had pairs for a few years that haven't worn out. I don't wash them any special way.
- Dark colors will never get stained, just something to think about
These are far and above the best boxer brief I've tried. Give them a shot, i doubt you'll go back.

lightweight, cool, fast drying
after a lot of wear the waistband has loosened a bit and the legs are a little loose. could use a little more support.
