If you are anywhere in the States I swear it’s a freakin’ heatwave. From the West to the South East. Temperatures in Atlanta have been 90 degrees plus and with 80-90% humidity. It makes going outside miserable. Also, in the west such as AZ, NV and CA it’s been at or near record temperatures. It makes you want to wear the least amount of clothes possible.

However, many out there has a dress code for work. Meaning, it could be a uniform, suit or business casual. There is no way around it. You can wear underwear that will keep you cool throughout the day. There are several ways to choose the best underwear for a cool day!

The first is fabric. Unlike the old days, men’s underwear now comes in so many different fabrics. One of my all time favorites I love to wear in the summer is Modal. It’s lightweight, breathes and feels barely there. It is the “perfect” fabric for hot and humid weather. N2N Bodywear and Cocksox have created underwear out of the fabric and it’s in my summer underwear drawer. Unfortunately, the Cocksox Backstage isn’t made anymore but the briefs are ideal. I’m sure your favorite brand has modal in many pairs.

Another fabric to choose is mesh. I’m not talking the 100% see through but more of the sports mesh line. It’s a solid fabric with small holes in it. One current example is the Andrew Christian Blow Mesh Boxer. AC has always done mesh. While I know mesh is not for everyone but I think it’s something to consider!

The last way you can keep cool is by the cut of your underwear. Go with the dare to bare pairs. I”m talking thongs, jocks and anything skimpy. The less coverage the more airflow you will have down there. One thing I really hate is having to wear long boxer briefs on a hot day. It’s annoying AF. My wearing of jocks go up in the summer. One of my favorites is the Papi Premium Cotton Jock. It has a small waistband with matching leg straps.

We would love to hear some of your favorite summer underwear you wear. Leave a comment or let us know on social.

  1. I agree its been a warm one lately even in the northern states, I usually mix it up between jocks , thongs , and string bikinis. Sometimes less is more in the comfort category. I to am a fan of cocksox,with a recent purchase of their jock, also I like the road runner sports jockstrap, its lightweight, breathable, great for casual or light workouts.Another favorite is Mlovew string bikini from amazon , great material and style. Though a person has to size up a little with this brand , and at $5.99 its a deal.

  2. Thongs are definitely the best hot weather underwear, especially if you get a micro fabric that wicks sweat
