Explaining a Dress Code to 87 Holden Caufields

I'm a principal at a therapeutic high school and my students are railing against our school dress code now that the warmer weather is here. What's happening is that female students will be approached by female staff and the males vice versa, they are told their clothing is in violation of the school dress code, and they are given an opportunity to change/cover up. If the student refuses to comply with the dress code, they serve an in-school detention during lunch. If it happens twice, parents are called. But the kids are revolting. Literally. And in every sense of the word. [more inside]

Seamless boxer shorts / briefs to avoid sciatica pressure point

I find seams on boxer shorts act as a pressure point for sciatic pain at the back of my thighs, when sitting. Can anyone recommend mens underwear that avoids the problem? Preferably, something available in the UK.

Can Men's Underwear be "Fitted"?

Women can usually go to a good women's underwear store and be 'fitted' for underwear by someone with some training who understands support issues that apply, using two basic metrics plus some variables (strap size/position). Are there any similar services for men? Or even DIY instructions? A ratings system? Explain underwear engineering and design, please. [more inside]

Boxers, without looking like a boxer.

Men's underwear filter: I went from boxers to boxer-briefs long ago because I hated how my boxers were always riding up on me. But I miss the 'breathing room' of boxers. Is there any way I can go back to boxers but solve the riding up problem?

What is the threshold for neighborly decent exposure?

I moved into a new apartment where my back windows now face other neighbors, not too close, but not very far either. This exchange of views is a new thing to me. My question is: how dressed up do you have to be in order to avoid offending the neighborhood? Anyone with "rear window" experiences? [more inside]

Cute Guys Underwear Please

As a guy I am disheartened by the apparent lack of supercute underwear for guys in normal stores. It's all boring plaids and solids. What are some good online stores for cute quality guys' underwear? I cannot overstate the cute factor here. Anonymous so my underwear-buying habits are not google-able. Thanks!

If your running shorts have an inner pant, and your underwear of choice is boxers, what do you wear when you're running? Manties?
