I modified the Michael pattern for boxers to try to adapt them to boxers I already had on hand and which fit well.

I also modified the pattern to make a working fly, and for the waistband, rather than make a casing, I stitched elastic directly to the fabric as shown in the last 2 minutes or so of this tutorial from Threads:
