Underwear for fussy husband

Husband wants new underpants and he's fussy. They need to be briefs, mostly cotton, plain not print, not see-through and without keyholes or seams down the front. I have sent him links to Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Kiniki and Chums and he says they all have seams down the front. Is this true ? Any other suggestions please ?

    Tell him do do his own bl**dy research if he is such a fussy person!!!
    OR
    Buy the same brand/style as the ones he already has
    You took the words right out of my mouth!

    But OP does call herself 'Mrs Stepford', so that should be a clue of sorts to the kind of things she's dealing with. . .

    All briefs will have some sort of seam down the front. It is physically impossible to make a flat piece of fabric follow the shape of a round object, therefore seams are always present. However, these briefs have the seams that are almost impossible to see, and I can attest that they are very comfortable: https://www.marksandspencer.com/4-pack-pure-cotton-cool-and-fresh-assorted-slips/p/clp22284736?color=BLUEMARL#intid=prodColourId-22284736
    If his waist is towards the top of the size range, you might want to get the next size up as they are designed to be quite snug, and he may not want this. 
    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always try to check official information sources before relying on my posts.

    I have some Ralph Lauren briefs bought in the sale in their outlet store that have no front opening but the sizing comes up small and they aren't actually very comfy https://www.ralphlauren.co.uk/en/low-rise-brief-3-pack-373891.html

    Hollister are some of my favourite briefs at the moment https://www.hollisterco.com/shop/uk/p/knit-brief-3-pack-24260819?categoryId=85716&seq=01&faceout=prod1

    I've had seamless ones where other methods are used to shape and join fabric but they aren't any better, as others have said the seams add shape to the garments.

    Suggest he gets googling and tracks them down for himself. That's probably reduce future fussiness!

    I am sensing a little bit of 'anti-man' in this thread, shame on all of you.

    Really?  This man's reaction to the OP was "Good grief!  What's up with the bloke? Tell him to do his own reseach and buy his own b****y underpants".

    A positive attitude won't solve all your problems, but with luck it'll annoy enough people to make the effort worthwhile.
