investigation

gentlemen -

we hope that this query isn't too personal for this personal weblog, but do you typically buy underwear labeled with the same waist circumference as your pants? recent shopping adventures lead me to suspect discrepancies in boxer sizing, but it is likely that I'm just crazy.

scientifically,

rule of thumb

tightey whitees: always get 1" wider than pants width
boxers: whatever your swimming trunk size is (if it's in the whole S-XL sizing)

it's true, boxer sizing is not consistent. I've found that Gap/Banana Republic cotton boxers run small.

Re: rule of thumb

congratulations -- you win the prize. it was the Gap/Banana Republic that started this confusion cascade. I think that sometime in the past few years their sizing changed.
