Hey Dudes, Here's The Underwear You Should Buy Right Now

No pair is created equally.

Underwear is pretty essential. It protects your junk, after all. But how many of us have been guilty of letting our underwear go a little (or a lot) beyond its lifespan? Here are some fun ways to spice up your skivvies, for any situation you might find yourself in.

1. For the active guy who works out a lot:

Working out is hard enough, you don't want your underwear to fail you at the gym or during a run. Active underwear let you stretch further and move better all while holding everything in place. Besides that many of the pairs are engineered to wick away sweat, and some of them even prevent all the bad smells that often come along with a highly active lifestyle.Budget: Adidas: Athletic Stretch, $24 (pack of two)Moderate: Under Armour: Boxerjock, $25Splurge: Lululemon: Lock 'Em Down Boxer, $38

2. For the guy who sweats a lot:

Sweating downstairs is real as fuck, especially in the summer months. These are a few options that help to wick away the sweat and keep the funk under control whether you're sitting at your desk, walking around, or if you're just a heavy sweater. Bonus points to Mack Weldon's silver underwear because they promise that the added "silver" in the material helps to keep you so fresh and clean that you can wear them for five days straight without washing. While that's kinda gross, it's also pretty fucking impressive too.Budget: Hanes: X-Temp Active Cool, $16.49 (pack of three)Moderate: Mack Weldon: Silver, $34Splurge: Tommy John: Air Icon, $48
