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]

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?
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?
No, seriously: What are the pros and cons of wearing underwear vs "going commando"?
