10 Totally Acceptable Times to Go Commando

Going commando is definitely a persons's prerogative (ask Jon Hamm), and it's definitely a person's right to keep that kind of information to themselves. But there are definitely some times when ditching the briefs is more acceptable, or expected, than others.

Below are the top 10 times you should be and/or could be going commando.

1. Swimwear
Unless you're wearing board shorts, you should probably be going commando under your swim briefs.

2. Laundry Day
At The Underwear Expert, we believe that with so much underwear out there, you should always be wearing something awesome down below. That said, on laundry day, when there's nary a thong or jock in sight, going commando is definitely better than digging yesterday's brief out of the laundry basket.

3. Some Athletics
Are you a runner? A biker? A wrestler? These sports often come with their own special garments and don't require underwear.

4. You're Michaelangelo's David
Ok, so you aren't David, but if you are a nude model, by all means go commando.

5. You're Jon Hamm
If there's anything Hamm is more famous for than Mad Men, it's going commando. At this point, keeping it loose down there is just what you expect from him and you know how stars hate to disappoint their fans.

6. Pajamas
Either ditch the underwear under your pajama pants, or ditch pj's altogether. Sleeping naked is usually just better.

7. Hospital Gowns
When in Rome!

8. Sarongs
Listen, if you're manly enough to wear a sarong, you're manly enough to ditch your skivvies. Go big or go home, we say!

9. Kilts
A true Scotsman would keep it free and easy under his kilt. If you should find yourself in a kilt anytime soon, know that everyone expects you to be commando anyways. Don't let us down!

10. You're a Superhero
Listen: Squeezing into spandex is one thing. Squeezing into spandex with anything but your skin on? A waste of time. Superman thought so, which is why his red briefs were on the outside of his uniform.

What do you think? Do you prefer to go commando, or wrap it up? Sound off in the comments below.
