We all know how difficult it can be to find that perfect pair of boxers, underwear or boxer-briefs, especially when on a budget. Many people prefer to shop online for clothes because of how easy and inexpensive it is. There is a vast variety of options available to the online shopper from department stores' retail sites to discounted designer underwear. Here are some tips on where to find affordable men's underwear online.
Look for sales online when you can. If you prefer designer clothes at steep discounts, there are options where you can register to receive emails for discounts on designer underwear. One website, Gilt.com, offers brand name clothes at cheap prices. But you must become a member first. Another website, InternationalJock.com, also offers brand name underwear at discounted prices.
If you are more likely to be pleased with any old underwear, and designer clothes are not your cup of tea, then registering for a specialized online email list is probably not the best option. Instead, Big box stores' online retail arms consistently offer cheap prices. Online prices generally range from $10 to $20 per four-pack of underwear, with old-fashioned tighty-whities being even cheaper than this range.
Walmart has just what its slogan proclaims: Always Low prices. Always, is perhaps the be all and end all of dirt cheap underwear. Walmart allows you to buy a five-pack of Hanes men's briefs for $10 with 97 cent shipping. They also offer a three-pack of boxers for $8 and a four-pack of boxer briefs for $8.87, both with 97 cent shipping. Additionally, Walmart has a value of the day option. If you are lucky, they might have men's underwear as a value of the day—meaning an extra cheap price!
Other department stores offer cheap underwear online. You can also check out the websites for Target, JC Penney or Kohl's, for example. Prices at these stores are not quite comparable to Walmart, but they are still inexpensive. Target offers a two-pair pack of boxer briefs for $13.99. JCPenney offers individual pairs of boxers at $6.99 at their cheapest and a three-pack of boxer briefs for $9.99. Kohl's offers a three-pack of boxers or briefs for $10.99. If you want to buy underwear in bulk, JC Penney offers free shipping on purchases worth $69 dollars or more and Target ships packages for free if you purchase $50 or more.
Remember when shopping online, once you reach the website you should sort by price from low to high so you can find the cheapest pairs. There is usually a drop-down box near the top of the website page to do so. There are a myriad of places to shop online for virtually anything, including underwear.
Another option to find affordable clothes or special deals is to go to your favorite department store's website and sign up for the email list. Signing onto email lists means that you might also get more emails than you care to deal with, but that comes with the territory.
Big box department stores tend to carry all of the name brands, such as Hanes, Staffords Merona or Fruit of the Loom. However, you'll have to search elsewhere if you want to find affordable, more unique brands including 2xist, 3G Ristefsky Macheda and others. Specialty stores including Men's Underwear Store.com or Fresh Pair.com for example, may be able to help with these other brands. Fresh Pair, for instance, has over thirty-nine brands of underwear available. The prices at these stores are decent too. Just don't expect them to be as cheap as Walmart's prices.
When shopping for underwear, there is more than just boxers and briefs. You can buy briefs, shapewear that conforms to the shape of your body, low-rise underwear, men's thong underwear, jocks, long underwear or even posing straps. There are also multiple designs and patterns, from stripes to plaid to logos. You name it! Generally, the crazier the style, the more expensive it gets. Most of the more obscure styles you cannot find in the average big box stores online retail. Again, specialty stores will allow you to find these items.
Overall, you can't go wrong when shopping for affordable men's underwear online. There is a wealth of variety and the prices are the same, if not cheaper, than in brick-and-mortar stores. Plus, of course, you don't even have to get up to shop!
