  1. If I choose a light colour like whites or pale blues, will they hide stains?
  2. If you are a sports person who wears white shorts, will they show through if they are a dark colour?
  3. Do you want crazy patterned coloured boxer shorts that may leave you open to ridicule when changing in front of your friends?

You will be surprised how many guys never consider the above until they have bought their boxers. Some fellas say it doesn’t really matter what colour they are but in reality it does matter.

Blacks and Navy are always a safe bet. They are great a hiding stains. Whites are good for sports people who may encounter transparent sportswear as part of their uniform.
