long boxer shorts are just more comfortable
Boxer shorts are called long boxer shorts when the legs are longer than the standard legs. However, boxer shorts with shorter legs are not called short boxer shorts. We don’t call them “shorts”, although that would make sense, but trunks. Long boxer shorts are popular in the Netherlands, but in France it’s the trunks that the men prefer. We Dutch men simply find the boxer shorts with long legs the most comfortable. And why is that actually?
Long boxer shorts for men
Boxer shorts with long legs for men are more popular because generally the legs are less likely to creep up. That is, if the legs of the boxer shorts are not too wide at the bottom. And gentlemen find the creeping up of the pipes very annoying. That’s because the fabric of boxer shorts more or less starts to collect in your groin. Or it becomes a bump on your leg. And then you keep pulling that pipe down, because you can feel it. Boxer shorts with a long leg are less affected by this, because the fabric sits lower on your leg and is therefore less likely to be pulled up. The pipe still has to go over the thicker part of your leg, your thigh. And that is simply not so easy with boxer shorts with long legs, because they taper at the bottom. Your leg just narrows after your thigh towards your knee. Self-explanatory, we think.
What length are our boxer shorts?
Long boxer shorts for men have legs that extend slightly further than the middle of the thigh, so where your leg narrows again. From that length you talk about boxer shorts with a long leg. The legs of long boxer shorts can reach all the way to the knee, you often see that in sports boxers. That is really long and those boxer shorts are often tight around your leg. Apparently nice for sports, but whether it is really comfortable to walk in all day, we doubt it. We think that is too long for boxer shorts with a long leg. You can also exaggerate. The days of (really) long underwear for men have been behind us for a while now. You know, those “charming” long white underwear down to your ankle. Better known as long underwear for men. Perhaps nice with winter sports, but not for everyday use. Unless you are often cold of course.
So welcome and enjoy wearing your long boxer shorts!
