There are a lot of things that you can get on a monthly subscription: coffee, fruit, magazines, but what about underwear?
Blacksocks.com is probably best known for their innovative 'sockscription' that let's busy men order top quality socks and have them delivered on a monthly. Now they're doing the same thing with underwear.

The Swiss company approached me late last year and asked if I'd be interested in trying out some of their new underwear - and of course who can't pass up free underwear so they sent me a pair for a test drive.
Every guy is different and everyone I've ever talked to has a reason for their preference in underwear and its one of those things that you can't really sway people on...if they like boxers you're not gonna get them to try on briefs. So Blacksocks has you covered, they've got three different types: boxer shorts, briefs and boxer briefs - I asked for the Boxer Briefs, and I got a pair named Josephine.
I'm not afraid to say that I like my underwear a certain way. When I was in Amsterdam last year I wanted to be all European so I bought a few pairs of underwear to act as a reminder of the great trip we had. Instead when I wear them all I think about all day is "Damn these shorts are uncomfortable, why'd I have to buy 6 pairs!!" I've had the chance to wear the Blacksocks underwear several times and they're very comfortable, whether wearing jeans or dress pants. I was concerned though, that the legs appeared to be a bit shorter than I like, but they were snug and comfy - oh yeah, one note, there's no fly front. They've also made it through the wash cycle unscathed as well, no pilling and they've kept their shape. I'm glad I have a pair in my drawer now.
They have four different types of underwear,The Pauline, boxer short; The Delphine, perfect fit boxer (which does have a flap fly-front); The Augustine, perfect fit brief; and the Josephine, fine-ribbed boxer. They also have choices of colors of white, black or grey.
You can order trial packs that include 2 pair, so you can try them out to see if you like them; you can order a subscription that delivers 2 pairs every month; or order a 'starter pack' that has 10 pair all delivered at once so you can make a clean sweep of the undie drawer. Prices range from $39 to $209 based on product and delivery choices.
**CONTEST** The folks at Blacksocks were kind enough to provide a trial pack of the Augustine Briefs (that's TWO PAIR) to one lucky reader of What's A Boy To Do. ****
