Undergarments are items of clothing worn beneath outer clothes,
usually in direct contact with the skin. Briefs are a type of short, snug
underwear and swimwear, as opposed to styles where looser material extends down
the thighs. In North America, "jockey shorts" or "jockeys" became an often
used generic term for men's briefs. Also, "tighty-whiteys" have become a commonly
used nickname for this style of undergarment.
In the case of men's underwear,
briefs, unlike boxer shorts,
hold the wearer's genitals in a relatively fixed position, which make briefs a popular
underwear choice for men who are participating in athletic activities or who feel
they need more support than loose-fitting underwear can provide. There are
variations on the brief with different cuts, some offering a wider leg and others
a narrower leg, names including, midi, full, sport, active, mini, bikini. Some briefs
have the cut all the way to only the waistband on the side, called a tanga brief.
History of the Brief in the United States:
Briefs were first sold on January 19, 1935, by Coopers, Inc.,
in Chicago, Illinois, at Marshall Field's department store. They dubbed the new
undergarment the "Jockey" because it offered a similar degree of support as the
jockstrap (one style of which is also called jock brief or support briefs). The
designer of the new style was reportedly inspired by a postcard he had received
from a friend visiting the French Riviera depicting a man in a very short, form-fitting
Traditional size briefs for both sexes cover the upper part
of the thigh and extend upward up to (or cover, depending on the design) the navel.
This style is often referred to as "full rise" or "full cut". There are also "low
rise" and "mid rise" styles whose measurements vary between manufacturers.
Men's briefs often feature a fly—a covered opening on the front of the garment which
allows for convenience in urinating. There are several different fly designs in
common use, including the standard vertical fly, the horizontal fly, the y-front
fly, and others. The use of a fly is optional, and many styles do not utilize a
fly at all.
