Jocks for Jocks

While the jockstrap may be one of the most ridiculed and ridiculous garments in the clothing kingdom, it certainly has its place on the so-called clothes chain. One very obvious bit of advice (that for some reason is frequently ignored) is that when you're wearing baggy sweats or loose shorts, please (please!) wear a jockstrap or Jockey shorts/briefs. If you don't, your faux pas will be discussed—before or behind your briefless behind. Joe once worked out in a pair of black bike shorts that, unbeknownst to him, sported a dime-sized hole in the right cheek region. His friends told him about it sotto voce; others just pointed and laughed hysterically.

If you don't already know, some gym shorts (and virtually all shorts designed for runners) come with a built-in brief for added support and comfort. Compression shorts, a specifically designed undergarment that resembles bike shorts, also work well under shorts or sweats.

Compression shorts like the ones favored by NBA players are form-fitting shorts made of nylon and spandex designed to be worn under loose-fitting shorts.

We all know members of both sexes who favor shorts so small that little (if anything) is left to the imagination. Some people can pull this off; others fall into the "shouldn't have tried" category. Again, diversity is the spice of life, and if you don't mind looking like Charo or one of the Village People, fine by us. However, remember that form usually follows function; if the garment is stretched to its limit, it's probably not the best thing to wear. Again, make like Joe's kayak-racing cronies and get comfortable before you get vain.
