Men’s Luxe Underwear, Must Haves For The Undie Connoisseur In All of Us

It’s  been over 24 years since Mark Wahlberg’s infamous Calvin Klein ad redefined the art of looking your bestundressed. But with a limited heritage, what defines luxury men's underwear now? Superior moisture-wicking? Fear not! Beyond jargon here’s what constitutes the 12 most luxurious lines today and why.

Although modern gents happily parted with $3.9 billion over the last year in luxe underwear, this men’s fashion phenomenon is still in its infancy. After only 79 years in the making, comfortably cupping your downstairs mixer is just now getting the luxury cache it deserves. And as with an Italian suit or a Swiss timepiece, having an eye for the classics and emerging brands is what will make you a true connoisseur in this relatively new luxe category.
