    Mine were green with the mesh removed, they lasted the whole AT. Although I preferred the swim trunks, athletic shorts (nothing to remove) from a dollar store worked for the PCT.

    Gym shorts are another option I have used a pair of those before and a lot of my hiking shirts are gym attire. Also cheap and off the clearance rack if I can find them there!

    FWIW, I am wearing a pair of Patigonia boxers now, about 5 years old. Worn about every other week. Wash warm, regular detergent, no bleach, medium dry in winter, clothes line when possible. Elastic is fine.

    I have boxers that are over 30 years old (not kidding) and the waistband on a few has also done that. What I've don is just pull them up and use the belt on my pants to hold them up.

    I presume the question is where you can purchase Tercel/Lyocell fabric material. Probably the best way to purchase this material unless there is a fabric shop near you that has a decent inventory is through on-line vendors like the ones listed below.

    Esty
    Blue Moon Fabrics
    Joann
    Zealous Fabrics
    Laguna Fabric

    Good luck!

    The patagonia boxers are made out of Tencel which is branded Lyocel. The two problems I have is 1, which material is good for a permanent waistband with draw string replacement?and 2. where to source it from.
    Talk to the people at Joanne Fabrics nearest you, they have all the answers.
