Since I have realized that if you are a normal male, decent underwear should last you a while. Why not find something that was worth the money.
All are size LARGE. I have a 35-36 waist and am not thin nor obese. Lumpy is how i would call it.
Fruit of the Loom Premium - Cotton is comfy, but lacks elasticity. Gets droopy and boxer like after a little while. Initial fit was decent and was cheap in packs. After the cotton gets droopy, its bunches and rides. Didn't have large expectations, but it's a no from me
Hanes Ultimate Pima - Better materials, more elasticity. Definitely stays better, but it still rides up at the gym and house working. These are pretty comfy in the cotton variety. These might do well for a less active person. They held up ok on regular work days with no activities. These were cheap in packs, better, but not what I was looking for in the value/performance arena. It's a no from me.
Under Armour Boxerjock - Sturdy materials, super elasticity(too much). Sizing is too small, I expected the lower rise but these felt like biking shorts. The material is synthetic with a soft feel and thick. They were too snug in certain places and the manhood pouch was not located ideally and kind of had a athletic cup look. They ride up a little probably because the sizing is off. If i got an XL they might have been better, but they felt bulky. It's a no from me.
Ex-officio Give-n-Go - Light, thin, synthetic. These are great. They stay put, they are comfy and have just enough elasticity to not feel. To be honest, the thin material is a little odd at first when you are used to cotton. My only gripe about these is that the leg holes are a little too loose on me and I have big thighs. I would certainly recommend these. They are almost $20 a pair, but they fit great, perform great, and should last a while.
Duluth Trading Buck Naked - Light, thin, and synthetic like the Ex-officio. They look similar, some of the seams might be in different spots, but they are both great. You can barely feel them and they stay put and perform as great as the ex-officio. The upside here is that the legs are a bit more fitted. These are my #1 recommendation. They are like the Ex-officio with a slightly more snug fit with out feeling them. I have since ordered many more and will be replacing all but the Ex-officio ones.
Hanes, Fruit are cheap, cotton, comfortable. Butt they do not perform at the gym or for an active lifestyle
Under Armour, like spandex bike shorts. Solid, bulky, tight, too small
Ex-officio and Duluth are amazing. Worth the money and occasionally go on sale. Duluth had better fitting legs but I would reccomend either of these to anyone looking for a boxer brief that has performance. Pricier but worth it. Try one pair of them and you will understand.

My only warning to future buyers is to check for damages, loose threads, or imperfections before removing the tags and wearing these. The ones I received had frayed strings and a tiny hole in the back. Sadly I already cut off the tags and wore them only to have some else point out these issues later in the night...
I wouldn't have cared if these appeared 4-5 months after my purchase... but when you are spending good money for a "premium" product, you expect a "premium" level of quality control.
In conclusion I'm still going to wear these as they are still my best pair. But I'm annoyed at the fact that I've bought value packs with 5 pairs in the past for the same price, and they were all imperfection free.
Also worth noting, compared to other comparable underwear, these are Nylon rather than Polyester. Nylon is more durable and has a better feel in my opinion.
keeps fresh smelling, even after days of continued use (weird, I know)
supportive, yet roomy
elastic wears out after a while
sometimes pills after a while
I wish it were tag-less
Warning: possible TMI ahead. As I said above, I first tried these out after I read that weird review from a guy that didn't change them for a week straight. I travel a lot and feel like I always get nasty swamp-ass after wearing the same pair of cotton underwear while flying for 30+ hours to a destination. Sometimes it would get so bad I'd change into a fresh pair of underwear in the airport bathroom on a layover. But that's no fun, plus, cotton underwear takes forever to dry and absorbs smells like a sponge. All those problems went away when I started replacing my cotton underwear with ExOfficio Give-N-Go Boxer Briefs.
These boxer briefs are insanely comfortable, and I only have to pack a few pairs for a long backpacking trip. They dry fast enough that I can wash them in a sink, and hang them to dry in a few hours. In a pinch you can even hang them on the exterior of your backpack and keep traveling while they dry. They never smell bad, so even if you don't wash them right away you can still pack them with your clean clothes and not worry about the stench spreading (though I always bring a spare ziplock bag for dirty clothes anyway...because gross). They take up less room in a backpack than a standard pair of cotton underwear, and yet feel so much better.
I even wear these in the water. I never liked wearing board shorts without underwear, but cotton underwear takes so long to dry that you can't expect to wear them comfortably after getting out of the water. I will wear these boxer briefs under my swim trunks when swimming, snorkeling, and even scuba diving. They stay comfortable even when wet, and dry fast enough I can wear them the rest of the day without problem.
Really the only cons I have are the tag (sometimes it starts to rip off and is uncomfortable, so I usually very carefully remove it when they first arrive), the elastic waist will eventually start to deteriorate (but by then you should really look into getting new pairs of underwear anyway), and the fact that they do pill a bit, as others have mentioned. I don't mind the pilling, but I understand why others might.
Even with those couple of potential improvements, these are hands down the best underwear I've ever worn, and I can't recommend them highly enough.

2. The legs on these are longer than others and do not ride up.
