Where can I find art school briefs or assignments?

Years ago, I did an introduction to art and design as a precursor to design school (which I later did). It included assignments such as, draw what the inside of your mouth feels like, or create a sculpture using only found objects. I found it really helpful in inspiring me. Where can I get similar briefs as prompts for creating art today? Ideally they will be actual assignments from art institutes and point me in different directions for making interesting things. I've had little luck so far finding similar things for college students online.

Inexpensive, high quality boxer briefs?

It's due time I get myself higher quality boxer briefs as the elastic bands of my current batch of boxers, which I bought only a few weeks ago, are all falling apart on me; the same fate befell the batch I bought before this one. As I'm sick of this happening, I'd like you folks to steer me in the direction of boxers you've found to not be complete pieces of shit. Bonus points if they're stylish. All recommendations are welcome but I don't think I'm willing to spend more than $20 / pair as I'm low on money now and need to keep some money around for . . . things that aren't underwear. If it matters, I'm male. But I certainly don't require anything super manly as I'm not a very masculine dude.

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?

Why is the opening at the front of men's briefs still there if it's rarely used?

UnderpantsFilter: What is the opening at the front of briefs (and boxer breifs) for? Okay, I know what it's for, but does anyone actually use it? It seems far more trouble to manipulate than pulling the front of your pants down four inches. If no one uses it, why is it still there? It seems to add extra fabric and stitching that cost-reductionism would have eliminated long ago. Is it simple industry momentum? Does it add something to the comfort I don't see?
