How to fold boxers in your underwear drawer
  
Gentlemen folk of Great Britain, we know you’re fans of a good-quality pair of boxers. Quite frankly, you deserve only the best materials, designs and brands next to your skin. But after taking the time to stock up on some classic Calvin Klein boxers or ultra-supportive Pringle hipster trunks, isn’t it worth the effort to fold those stylish boxers away? A little time spent organising now will save you plenty of rummaging time later!

How to fold boxers

Fold your boxers flat

  1. Lay your boxers waistband up. Put your boxers on a flat surface, like your bed or a countertop, with the waistband facing up. Flatten out any creases with your hands.

  2. Fold your boxers in half. Now, fold your boxers in half by folding the right leg over the left leg. You’ll know when you’ve done this right because both of the outer seams will line up perfectly. 

  1. Spin 180 and fold in half again. Next up, spin the boxers 180 degrees, so the waistband is on the left and the leg holes are on the right. Then fold them in half, top to bottom, to make a long, thin rectangle.

  2. Fold the boxers into thirds. For the final flourish, fold your boxers into thirds. Bring the leg-hole end to the middle, then once more to the waistband. They’re now ready to go in the drawer!

Fold your boxers into a square

  1. Lay your boxers waistband up. Place your boxers on a flat surface once more, with the waistband facing up towards you. Flatten out any creases with your hands.

  2. Fold the legs into thirds. Fold the right leg to the centre of the boxers and then fold the left leg so that it overlaps the right. Make sure the two edges are perfectly aligned.   

  1. Fold the waistband to halfway. Now, fold the waistband down to the centre of the boxers. Take extra care to ensure your undies don’t shift around and get misaligned as you do this.

  2. Fold the bottom half into the waistband. Finally, fold the bottom half of your boxers up and carefully into the waistband. Keep going until you’re left with a neat, self-contained square that’s perfect for packing.

Fold your boxers into a 'ranger roll'

  1. Lay your boxers waistband up. As with the other techniques, start with your boxers on a flat surface, with the waistband and crotch facing you. Flatten out any creases with your hands.

  2. Fold the waistband over. Now, fold the waistband over itself about two inches. This action should feel a bit like you’re turning them inside out (just don’t!). Make sure your fold is the same width all round.

  3. Fold the legs into thirds. Next, fold the right leg to the centre of the boxers and then fold the left leg so that it overlaps the right. Make sure the two edges are lined up properly.  

  4. Roll and tuck into the waistband. Finally, roll the boxers from the bottom towards the waistband. Then tuck the roll into the waistband for a super-secure, space-saving solution!
