1 - Bamboo

Bamboo has risen in popularity as a fabric used in making men's underwear. It's well-known due to the many benefits it has. The first reason why it's a good choice is environmental friendliness. The process of creating the fabric doesn't require a lot of energy or chemicals. It also naturally contains antibacterial properties which is a great health benefit. Another benefit with bamboo is that it's mildew-resistant, and therefore combats any type of bacteria that might build up on the underwear. Bamboo fabric underwear will last for years. It also has natural cleansing properties so it stays fresh throughout the day. Bamboo fabric is used to make moisture wicking underwear. It's a naturally occurring material that doesn't block airflow. It has a great ability to allow body moisture to escape which is something other fabrics don't always offer. Therefore, underwear made from bamboo fabric is the best underwear to invest in when considering maximum comfort. The fabric is soft, like silk, and doesn't chafe, bind, or irritate the skin in any way, offering comfort throughout the entire day. Bamboo is also more elastic than cotton. Finally, it's also wrinkle-free, unlike cotton and linen.

2 - Cotton

Another fabric that offers good moisture wicking underwear, is cotton. It's great for everyday wear. It's also very comfortable just like bamboo. Another great feature about cotton is that it's soft and very comfortable when worn. The most important feature about the cotton fabric is that it's breathable, which makes it suitable for people who live in warm places or sweat a lot. When you wash it, the cotton doesn't shrink. It's great for when you're working or relaxing. It is also a good option if you have sensitive skin. Try not to wear it in excessive heat or when exercising due to the fact that it may be uncomfortable, since cotton is a very absorbent material.

3 - Silk

Silk is also a great option when looking for the best underwear material. It is extremely comfortable and is also a natural fiber that insects produce. Some of the most well-known features of this fabric is the shine and softness. Silk is an extremely delicate fabric and doesn't do well when it's washed or worn often, since it can get damaged much faster than other materials. However, the thing that makes it a good choice of fabric when making men's underwear is the softness. You don't experience discomfort from wearing it. It's an ideal fabric for the winter season or when you just want to feel sexy. It's really absorbent so it doesn't work well if you wear it while exercising.

4 - Nylon

This fabric is the second most used fabric for men's underwear. It is a sturdy material that is comfortable to wear, holds up well after multiple washes, and does not fade easily. This is an excellent year-round material for men's underwear, since it helps to maintain heat during the colder months, and it is perfect for summer months due to its low permeability, which allows it to dry quickly and easily. That also makes it a great choice for men who sweat a lot or like to exercise regularly. 

Conclusion

There are a number of different materials that are used in making men's underwear. Bamboo is one of the best materials since it offers a lot of benefits when it comes to comfort and health. However, most men's underwear use cotton and nylon. All the materials we mentioned above are great options as they all provide various levels of support, comfort, and breathability.
