i found a boxer pattern in http://www.utilisima.com, a tv channel from Argentina that has cooking shows, sewing shows, knitting shows, crafting etc etc.... (I'M FROM CHILE)
one show is called "Puntos y Puntadas" (puntadas=stiches, puntos means like when you knit, i don'k know how you call them Tongue)
----> http://www.utilisima.com/manualidades/txp.php?Id=34 this is a list of all the projects, with patterns and explanation, **all in spanish**, you will need to learn about vestidos, faldas, poleras, remeras, bermudas... all you need is to know basic spanish or a spanish dictionary Grin

anyway, i found a boxer pattern, and i remember my boyfriend is running out of boxers Cheesy
and boxer are sooo expensive!!! they cost like 4 times more than girls (pretty) underwear.
so i decided to try this pattern, and try to understand it, i had to go find my dad's boxers (that were a gift and he never wore, so literally "find" them) to see the cuts and the pieces and everything.
here's the picture of the sample boxer on the website http://www.utilisima.com/manualidades/trabajo_06.php?IdTrabajo=569
and the pattern (or "molde"): http://www.utilisima.com/manualidades/works/img/boxer1.jpg

i was just trying, so i used a reaaally ugly old tshirt i found
the problem is that the fabric wasn't very stretchy, i added a couple of cm to the pattern (and made the legs shorter;)) so they turned out kind of small, i think they are actually a size SMALL. they fit me ok, and i'm hmm "wider" than him in the behind area xD

and here's the boxer i made, front:

and back:

and a piece that i added, it wasn't on the pattern but it was on the boxer i used as a guide, and the fabric wasn't too stretchy so i needed extra room for the legs Cheesy and i think it fits better that way
well, fits ME better because i was my own model, my boyfriend hasn't try them on yet, but i think they will fit right because we're kind of the same size Smiley (we share clothes a lot)

i used and OLD elastic for the waist, it was a little smelly Tongue
and it was the perfect lenght, lucky me

and that's it, i think it turned out great!!
and it was my first time 
(making men's underwear Cheesy)

thanks for looking!!
and make your guy some boxers
i probably make some undies for me too, with matching fabric of course Shocked

*EDIT: the pattern in english, i didn't change the centimeters, because i HATE inches!!!  Angry
everyone should use the Metric System!!
so, sorry for that, i use Babylon to convert measurments, you can use that.

other shows' projects from the same website:
"Bsicos" : http://www.utilisima.com/manualidades/txp.php?Id=35
"Soho Buenos Aires": http://www.utilisima.com/manualidades/txp.php?Id=33
"Cosmo Urbano": http://www.utilisima.com/tv/anexo_tv/programas/cosmo_urbano/trabajos06.html (this show is supossed to be for punkier/hardcorer/goth-er kind of girls Cheesy)

(puntadas=stiches, puntos means like when you knit, i don'k know how you call them Tongue)

like when you knit = stiches. So in English, that show would be "stiches & stiches". THANKS for the link -- I'm on my way to check it out.

I can't sew in Spanish Roll Eyes but nearly every US pattern has a list of English/Spanish/French equivalents somewhere on the pattern tissue. And Burda has German/English/Spanish/French etc. etc.

Muchas Gracias!

I like the stripes.

And thanks for the link to the pattern.  I've made my bf underwear for the last 5 years, some from t-shirts.  I would just make my oattern fromn existing boxers.

He REALLY enjoys having hand made one of a kind undies.

I laid out his underwear on a piece of paper and used a tracing wheel on the seems.  They are the boxer brief kind, so lots of pieces.

A serger is great help.  I often topstich too.
