These are some under drawers I made for Enzo.
underwear that center back seam is going to have a tendency to wedge and that's no good. For this reason I added a gusset to the seat. Any self respecting boxer short has a gusseted seat.
If you make this photo bigger, you'll easily see the gusset seam lines. I made these assembly line style and didn't bother myself with matching thread.
look narrow, but believe me in comparison with the volume in the seat it's down right skinny.
The third benefit of the gusseted seat was a surprise to me. It is the "poop hammock" effect I mentioned here. And what a pleasant surprise it was! Lucky for me we haven't had anymore incidents where that benefit was illustrated.
Here's the front of that pair
I could have skipped the step of making flys in these, they don't really serve any purpose. He noticed the fly once and thought that pair was ripped. After my first fly experience though, I was happy to do it again. I really dig technical sewing like that. It's rather exhilarating. Don't even get me started on welt pockets. Those things are the stuff my sewing dreams are made of.
