BRIEF OR BOXER??
Why do boxer shorts have straight frontal slits and briefs have complicated "trap doors"?

All that infrastructure on the briefs is what keeps you from indescent exposure charges. Even though most briefs and boxers sold in the U.S. are made out of the same material (cotton-polyester blends), briefs are knitted and boxers are woven. The two techniques yield different wear characteristics.

Boxers are built for comfort and won't stretch unless elasticized bands are added. But as Janet Rosati of Fruit of the Loom's Consumer Services told Imponderables, briefs are intended as support garments and are designed to stretch. Without all the reinforcements, or "trap doors", as our correspondent so elegantly put it, the opening on briefs would tend to gape open at embarrassing and unfortunate times.
