A brief history of men’s underwear

A brief history of men’s underwear

Men, you probably can’t imagine your life without your modern underwear today, right? But, did you know that this important piece of clothing in your wardrobe can be traced all the way back to 5400 BC? We are sure that the first man who decided to wear this kind of protection would have never imagined that someday this product would become a billion-dollar industry that would go on to focus exclusively on style, comfort, and gender appeal.

From the lion cloth and braies to codpieces and loose pantaloons, men’s bottomwear and innerwear styles kept evolving. In the late 1800s, different kinds of men’s underwear popped up, including union suits that had connecting vests with drawers, long johns that were long wool drawers for the winter, and shorter cotton drawers with front buttons.

Over the years, styles of pants changed, and so did the styles of undergarments beneath them. From loose to tight pants, normal to low to high waists, and buttons to zipper openings, today, men wear many different styles, which calls for many different underwear options as well. Some common designs that still exist today include boxer and Jockey shorts from the 1930s, and briefs and mini-briefs introduced in the 1970s.

Now, if you are still wearing the same style of underwear for years, men, let history be proof that style keeps evolving and every age brings you the best options to choose from. So, don’t wait any longer! Here are a few styles from Jockey that you must check out –
