I think finding great under wear for men is like finding a needle in a haystack. Over the course of 10 years I have noticed manufacturers of the most common brands that you find in large dept. stores leave the elastic waistband exposed in men's underwear. If you have any sensitivities to elastic or sweat your skin gets irritated and you itch. I think, they think it saves the company money. It is less fabric and time to construct, yet the prices are still high.
