affordable wicking underwear?

hey all,
do you know any places to get affordable (read: NOT $30 a pair) decent wicking underwear that will last? I am a firm believer in good underwear being essential, and I need to get a few without doing a lehman brothers, so to speak... something like patagonia would be nice (btw, recently they were having a sale on last season's underwear BUT the only sizes are small or XL, so if you're there i'd suggest heading over before they disappear).
thanks for your help!

I probably shouldn't say, or else everyone will go and buy'em all up, but I've already got 7 pairs and that's plenty for now:

Target (W. 225th St.) sells Champion brand wicking boxer briefs for about $6 each. Not sure if they have standard briefs, but the boxer briefs are available in long or short leg lengths.

I've switched recently form Patagonia Boxer Briefs ~$30/pair to Jockey GO Mesh ~$20/2 pair and have been quite happy with the switch.
