Fabric Composition

Jason Hoeung, the founder of 2Eros and Supawear, made a YouTube video comparing polyester and polyamide (nylon). Jason states that polyester is suitable for daily wear underwear and workouts. Polyamide is ideal for comfortable underwear.

FeaturePolyesterPolyamide (Nylon)
Durable, lightweightYes, smooth feelYes, though gentler and softer on the skin than polyester
Water-resistantYesYes. It absorbs water but dries faster as it is a synthetic material.
Holds color wellYesYes
Easy to washYes, highly stain resistantYes. It absorbs moisture, but it is easy to wash stains away.

In comparison, Calvin Klein combined polyester and polyamide in the CK One. (Note: I own some pairs of the boxer briefs.). The fabric composition of the CK One is 58 percent polyamide, 30 percent polyester, and 12 percent elastane. The fit is close to the body and comfortable; the material is light and flexible. The feel of the fabric is smooth. The color is deep blue (Perth Blue).

It can get confusing to know that these brands are available, so I have tried to collect the brands into one post for your convenience.

The basic forms of men’s underwear are briefs, trunks, boxer briefs, and boxer shorts. (Read a separate blog post on the styles and types of men’s underwear for more information.)

How often to change underwear?

Daily. Underwear and socks should be washed after each wearing.

How often should guys replace underwear?

Deyan Dimitrov, CEO of Laundryheap, has some top tips on when to replace items – not just for cleanliness, but also to get the best out of them.

He told Metro.co.uk: ‘Generally speaking, and this applies to any garment, how often you replace your underwear will depend on how many pieces you have in your rotation, how well made they are.

‘How well you care for them is also key. Don’t throw items away simply because you’ve read that they need replacing every year. You’ll save yourself a lot more money in the long run.’

Avoiding Fashion Waste: Recycling Used Underwear

The World Economic Forum encourages the recycling of washed, used underwear to address the issue of textile waste.

“What do you do with your unwanted underwear? Chances are you throw them away.

Now a clothing company in Philadelphia, US, says it’s time to stop casting our undergarments aside. About 5 million kilogrammes of unwanted underwear ends up in landfill sites across the US every day, according to The Big Favorite.

It says it’s bringing circularity to underwear – “the one category remaining that can’t be donated or resold” – by encouraging customers to return their old undies to the company for recycling instead of throwing them away.”

Conclusion

The market for men’s underwear is huge, with many brands available for purchase. Do you have a favorite brand? Write about it in the comments.

The 2022 Ultimate Guide: Men’s Crossfit Shorts

The 2022 Ultimate Guide: Men’s Crossfit Shorts

Introduction

Perhaps you are a newbie Crossfit enthusiast preparing for your first WOD, or you are a skilled Crossfit athlete seeking to find the best men’s shorts that will be as tough as you perform your exercise movements. This article will explain the various types of Crossfit shorts that are on the market.

WOD or Box Shorts Are Just Gym Workout Shorts

According to the wodhopper website, a Crossfit box is a gym that affiliates with Crossfit. An affiliated gym must have Crossfit-certified trainers on site. WOD in Crossfit stands for workout of the day. As each gym is independent, the workout emphasis varies from gym to gym.

According to Invictus Fitness, Crossfit gyms typically “post one workout each day for their members and online followers to complete.” So box shorts or wod shorts are essentially gym shorts.

For a reflection of a new person starting Crossfit from mens physique, read a blog article about Tom Seed.

Crossfit Shorts that Will Work as Hard as You During Your WOD

Crossfit uses functional movements. As a result, shorts that allow you to achieve the full range of motion is the best. You have a range of shorts from which to select your favorite.

Brands

Several brands create Crossfit shorts, including Athletegy, Nike, No Bull, Reebok, Ten Thousand, and Rogue.

Five-Inch Inseam Shorts

Athletegy

Athletegy, a gym clothing brand based in New York City, offers the Quad Short. (A co-owner of Athletegy is Andrew Morrill, a New York City-based model and personal trainer.)

This five-inch inseam short was designed for leg day and crossfit-style workouts.

The fabric composition of the shorts allows for freedom of movement, 88 percent polyester and 12 percent Spandex.

The brand provides the following information on its website:

  • “AthDura™ our 4 way stretch fabric
  • Anti Odor & Quick Dry Technology
  • Woven Brief liner giving breathable support
  • Concealed interior waist band drawcord
  • Invisible Zipper Pocket System
  • Back panel ventilation for maximum comfort”
Model: Andrew Morrill, wearing the Quad Short and the Ace Tee.

Crossfit Board Shorts

In this blog, I wrote an article for board shorts in mens physique competitions. The board shorts there are closer to the leg. For Crossfit, the board shorts have a wider leg opening given the demands of the Crossfit WOD. For example, see the Reebok board shorts; the shorts have a wide leg opening that could suit demanding leg-focused exercise movements. Reebok’s board shorts have pockets.

The Rogue brand also has a board shorts option available. The board shorts, like the Reebok, have a pocket.

Crossfit Cordura Shorts

What is Cordura?

Cordura is a trademarked brand name for a fabric that INVICTA (a subsidiary of Koch Industries) manufactures. The synthetic fabric is available for civilian use. Cordura can withstand abrasions, is generally water repellent and flame resistant. Read more about Cordura at Sailrite’s website.

I was not able to find any shorts with Cordura. If the reader finds one, please let me know in the comments.

Crossfit Kevlar Shorts

What is Kevlar?

Kevlar is a trademarked brand name for a synthetic fabric known best for its use in bullet-resistant body armor. Kevlar’s creator is Stephanie Kwolek, and DuPont owns the trademark. Kevlar is cut and puncture resistant and flame resistant.

Why is Kevlar used in Crossfit shorts? The workouts can be demanding, but not to the extent of needing Kevlar’s strengths. I was not able to find any shorts with Kevlar. If the reader finds one, please let me know in the comments.

Crossfit Compression Shorts

This subsection contains affiliate links. This means that if you use these links to visit a merchant I may earn a commission–at no additional cost to you.

Considering the functional exercise moves in Crossfit, a compression short is available. The use of compression shorts is wide in fitness. Ten Thousand’s Tactical Short can incorporate an optional compression liner in the shorts. The Interval shorts also have pockets.

There is a compression short that is a separate item, such as the one from No Bull.

Introducing: The Tactical Short
New Limited Edition Color -- Iron!
New Limited Edition Color -- Ash!

Crossfit Fight Shorts

The Rogue brand offers a fight short for MMA fights, Crossfit WODs, and gym workouts. The fight shorts have a velcro closure. The Rogue fight short has a side zipper pocket.

What to Wear under Crossfit Shorts?

Given the amount of movement with this activity, briefs, boxer briefs, or compression shorts would work well. Some shorts, like the Interval Shorts discussed above, can incorporate a compression liner under the top shell of the shorts.

The Underwear Expert did a video several years ago asking Crossfit athletes about their underwear preference.

Conclusion

This article has covered the shorts available to the new and experienced Crossfit athlete. The fabrics of the shorts will sustain rough treatment during challenging WODs.

Also, Crossfit shorts have a place in the athleisure category, with most of the shorts having pockets.

Any of the shorts featured are your favorite? Please let me know in the comments.
