9. Size Matters - Get It Right From the Start

We've all been there – tempted to size down to feel snug and secure. But trust me, wearing the right-sized boxer briefs is key to their longevity seeing as too much of a snug fit can lead to premature stretching and wear and tear. Find your perfect size, and your Drawlz will thank you.

8. Sort Before You Wash

Laundry day can be a battlefield for your boxer briefs when thrust up against more robust fabrics like denim in your washing machine. To avoid unnecessary friction and wear, separate your underwear from abrasive items like jeans and zippers. A separate wash cycle for your Drawlz can do wonders for their longevity.

7. Gentle Cycle: A Gentleman's Choice

When it comes to washing your beloved boxer briefs, opt for a gentle cycle. Harsh washing cycles, even the normal cycle, can weaken the elastic waistband and fabric fibers prematurely. A little TLC in the laundry room goes a long way.

6. Cold Water Rinse

Excessive heat from near-boiling hot water in your washing machine can be your boxer briefs' worst enemy. Stick to cold water when washing to prevent shrinking and fading. Your Drawlz will maintain their shape and color, just like the day you got them.

5. Skip the Dryer

I totally get how tempting it is to toss your boxer briefs in the dryer for a quick fix; but it's a big time no-go. High heat can lead to premature fraying, pilling, and shrinking. Air drying is your Drawlz's best friend. It might take a bit longer, but the results are worth it.

4. Mind the Fabric

If you're all about boxer briefs that go the distance, opt for high-quality fabrics like micro modal. These materials are less likely to show wear and tear, and they stay soft, even after many washes.

Check out our Drawlz Originalz line of micro modal boxer briefs for the ultimate in comfort, reserved style, and durability.

3. Rotate Your Favorites

I know you have your go-to pair, but rotating your boxer briefs ensures even wear and tear. This prevents one pair from bearing the brunt of your daily activities, extending the life of all your Drawlz.

Or, if you really love a certain pair of underwear, you could also order multiple of the same design to disperse the wear and tear.

2. Store Them Right

Don't cram your boxer briefs into a cramped drawer; instead, take the time to learn how to fold boxer briefs. Offer them some room to breathe, preventing unnecessary stretching and wrinkling. A little extra space goes a long way in preserving their shape and comfort.

1. Check for Signs of Wear

Regularly inspect your boxer briefs for signs of wear, such as loose stitching, frays, or stretched-out elastic. Identifying issues early can help you address them and be more careful about what they’re worn for before the briefs become irreparable.

There you have it, gents. Your boxer briefs are more than just underwear; they're the daily companions for your manhood and should be treated as such. With a little love and care, you can ensure that they remain comfortable, stylish, and durable.

Whether you're wearing them to work, the gym, or just lounging at home, these tips will help your Drawlz stay in top form for longer. So size up correctly, wash with care, and invest in quality materials – your boxer briefs will thank you, and you'll continue to enjoy that million-dollar fresh Drawlz feeling every day.

Until next time,


Founder, Drawlz
