I'm normally a boxer brief guy until I realized how silly the concept is. The boxer briefs were made for guys to feel cooler than wearing tighty whities and not having regular boxers bunching up in their pants. The boxer briefs have been riding up when I'm wearing pants or working out. These will do the job they did but without the bunching at the crotch. I probably should have gone with a medium though. Small was for 30-32" and medium said 34-36" or something. I'm a 33" waist and got small. They fit a tiny bit tight, but are comfy. But if they shrink after washing I may have to get mediums.
