The first layer should not be ignored—a bad pair of briefs can ruin a round. Moisture management below the belt is the first line of defense, and there is nothing worse than the look or feel of soggy back pockets. Replace those grungy drawers with a pair that will hug where they should and breathe where it matters, if you know what we mean.
The Tommy John 360 Sport 2.0 addresses all the problem areas: mesh cooling zones for ventilation, full stretch material that stays put and is, as the company terms it, anti-wedgie. The waistband is specially designed so it won't dig or roll. The fabric is moisture-wicking and has anti-odor components to keep things fresh. The utility pocket even holds your cellphone, if you're cool with digging inside your pants every time you get a text.
2UNDR has the softest boxers with the boldest patterns. The Swing Shift's modal-elastane blend is formulated to be cool to the touch. The modal, a type of rayon, is comfortable and breathable, and the elastane maintains the shape and integrity of the briefs. These bottoms have the feel and absorbency of cotton but won't pill or get destroyed in the wash.
