I bought these since I was "over" the boring, uncomfortable boxers and conservative mens sleepwear seen in big box stores. Mategear (As an Aussie, I approve of the brand name) products are quite... different, and on this front alone I'm impressed! The translucent fabric is just the right level of revealing (a bit but not excessive) and the cut is minimalist - these are as small as a pair of shorts can realistically be. The "It's like wearing nothing at all" cliche is true of these shorts, they're light and airy keeping me cool and comfortable; I have no problem sleeping in them. As close cut as they are, the fabric is light and a little stretchy so they're not restrictive, and the fit is pretty much true to the size guide. As someone with an interest in design, I really admire the solid checked panels on the front, they give just the right amount of contrast against the rest of the fabric, and remind one that these are in fact boxer shorts, albeit outrageously unique ones. Only complaint is the inside label can be a little irritating (not a huge problem but I notice it sometimes).
