I think I got a dud.
I'm not sure if I just got a dud but my Format Boxer is already falling apart at the seams (literally lol). And I just got it this week! What's really unfortunate is that these boxers are actually pretty nice. They're comfortable, breathable and wicks moisture well but I think it's fair to say that it's unacceptable for a garment to start falling apart in the first week lol. And I'm not exactly putting it through a lot of stress (daily wear & running). I'm new to LLL stuff and from my (limited) experience, LL stuff is really a hit and a miss. Some things are really well made (like my Revolution Hoody & KungFu Pants) and some things are just lemons (like this boxer) LOL.

No support for your business!
This seems to be a running theme with Lululemon's men's stuff, but these do not provide any support at all. I tried to wear them to a spin class, and because the crotch area didn't hold everything together, it actually started chafing against things. I had to excuse myself after about the 5th time trying to adjust myself in front of everyone. Ran out and rolled the waist band twice to hike them up high enough that they provided any support at all. Again, for some reason I think they are designing their men's crotches way too low in the garment, creating a huge space unless you wear them with the waistband 2" above your belly button. Hoping they hear and take this feedback!

Best Bikram shorts ever
I wear these for Crossfit and most of all, Bikram Yoga. These are the best shorts I've ever felt for yoga: they breathe even in our 120 degree room. For those who know Bikram, you cant wear loose shorts or they get in the way and get soaked. These shorts take care of that; stay tight and dry.
Wish I would have discovered these when I was playing baseball in college; I would have worn them in games.
Lulu, please listen, make more colors; Fast. Don't leave us stranded with black and white. Real men do yoga. And just like women, we wanna look good while we do it too....

Awesome compression shorts
Perfect compression shorts to pair with my Core shorts. Power Luxtreme fabric is very comfortable and just feels good next to your skin. And the little details makes it stylish compared to most compression shorts.

Great compression shorts for working out
I own a couple pairs of these shorts and find them great to workout in under my core shorts. I also use them during hot yoga.
Only complaint is the mesh panelling in "rear" often increases the temporary sweat left on a bench after doing bench presses.
You can't avoid it though, the mesh panelling is a life saver during hot yoga/long runs.
These add total confidence in inversions, sit ups, squats, etc etc.
Overall, these are great!

After reading a poor review I felt that I had to put my two cents in. I love these boxers, they are perfect any athletic activity. I wear my alpine skiing, running, working out, & to yoga. They are a tight compression fit so I would not suggest wearing them under a pair of jeans or something like that.

No uniqueness factor...
Generally I really like Lulu products, but when it comes to underwear designed for exercise - lulu is missing something big. This may not get accepted as a "review" because I'm about to list competitor brands, but please pass it on internally as feedback.
These boxers need to have 'support' like the solutions presented by Saxx and MyPackage. There is nothing more uncomfortable than working out with boxers that don't provide separation between ball and leg. I hope lulu can either find away around their patents or work something out, because I'd like to see them come out with a high quality mens boxer with this kind of 'support'.
