So what'cha wearing under there

Hello all. I'm wanting to write a smutty fic set in 1880s Britain and I need to know about men's underwear. I've found some really fascinating sites on Victorian clothing which have been very helpful, but I'm having trouble figuring out if they just wore boxers or what. I need to get to the goods and I'm not sure what's stopping me.

I've googled things like "Victorian clothes/clothing," "men's Victorian clothes," "Victorian undergarments", etc. and have found some helpful clothing sites like gentlemensemporium.com, but I'm not having much luck with underwear. Found night clothes and PJs, found long John's, found swim suits.

I just want to know: Is the Victorian gent wearing boxers or something while dressed in his little suit? Got his trousers, shirt, waistcoat, greatcoat, collar, cuffs and cravat, but is there underwear in that mess too, and can I easily get my hands in it?

Thanks in advance.
