It is the first thing that everybody puts on and the last thing that everybody takes off. You wear it for mostly the whole day and maybe more. Imagine having to wear a very uncomfortable underwear the whole day without being able to change your underwear for 24 hours straight. Comfort is key to a great underwear and the key for comfort is material. A quality underwear brings both comfort and safety together,

The general material for a great underwear is cotton. Cotton is very popular in the underwear industry as it can be easily obtained and processed.

However there has been many materials used in the past that is very interesting. Below we take a look at what materials for underwear that has been used throughout the history.

The first form underwear that is known to mankind emerge during the prehistoric times. Men would wear what we know now as Loincloth,, which is a material that is made out of leather. Men would wear this over their private parts to protect it from the wild nature around them. As the years go by, underwear became a secondary garment that is worn under another piece of clothing or your outerwear. This is done because it was less protective and less expensive to replace to an outerwear. Furthermore, this also minimises the need to wash your outerwear numerous of times.

In the 1500s to the 1600s, men began to wore another piece of material to cover their private parts. Codpieces emerge; they are a form of pouch attached to the underwear that covers the genitals. In the 1920s, a company called Everlast began to manufacture boxer shorts, which evolved from tweaking the leather trunks that is worn by boxers, which is where the name came from. In the 1930s, there is a brief breakthrough, literally. Briefs were introduced by a man named Arthur Kneibler. Both boxer shorts and briefs were known as the regular form of underwear of men by the end of the 1940s.
