I don't want skid marks inside my jeans. Commando is OK for bicyclists using the proper bicycling shorts, but other than that, it's tacky. This is coming from a man that wants support and hates having his equipment bouncing around. Formerly "whitey tighties", now they come in dark colors (which helped me at the office one day, forgot to zip back up and nobody noticed).
This kind of discussion has cropped up before, you'll see a full range of responses. That's the long and the short of it.
I once broke my leg. The paramedics ended up cutting off my shorts. I'm really glad I wasn't going commando.(DId i mention that this was on the side of a busy road?) I now try to avoid commando whenever possible.
I currently use boxer-briefs. I wish I could find a happy medium between briefs and boxer-briefs that did not give me wedgies and yet separated the boys so they don't get stuck to my leg as the day wears on.
Wesley and Paul, thanks for the info. I haven't tried trunks. The Hanes that I have stand up pretty well, but like Chris said they stretch out by the end of the day.
Oh and to answer the question of comando, my wife does not even like me to wear boxers. She says that I show too much. (I guess she is saying that she wants that view reserved for her eyes only. haha!)
I do find it more comfortable to wear boxers with my wrangler jeans though, because with briefs and boxer-briefs my Johnson gets pushed up inside of me and that is very uncomfortable.

1. You were there too, so if it's stupid to be there the day before a snowstorm...
2. Weather report tells us…"
