Hanes Classics Men's TAGLESS&reg; No Ride Up Briefs with Comfort Flex&reg; Waistband 2X 6-Pack
A disappointing product after many good years
I've worn Hanes underwear for probably 50 years. It was always a "no-brainer" to pick up another package of Hanes underwear, knowing that I would always get something that would fit and last for a long time......
Not so with the ComfortFlex.:
1) waist band is now about 1/4 " narrower than they used to be. It may not sound like much, but with ME, the new waistband rolls up on itself into a tight little tube, which is not at all comfortable;
2) the fit is not the same; I don't get the support that I used to get from the old style Hanes;
3) the material seems to be thinner and of lesser quality; I doubt that these will last more than a year.
Well let me take some of number 3 back...they probably WILL last longer than a year, because I'm not going to wear them that often....they'll be my back-up underwear. My "underwear of choice" will be some 6-year old Hane's Select briefs, and some 4-year old briefs that I bought on a whim from one of the big membership stores. They still fit more comfortably after all these years than these new ones.

pricey compared to in stores
My husband wanted to purchase these, thinking they would be higher quality, but two of the pairs had small holes in them when he took them out of the package. Not very happy with that. He does say they are comfortable.

I bought these for my stepfather who had a stroke and can't move around well at all. He needs something with a comfortable fit.
He loves them!!

I love this underwear! The only problem is when I was orriganly a boxer guy so it was difficult making the change. I ordered the small and been wearing ever since! When I received them, I felt like they were too tight in the area. I thought about sending them back but didn't. I would not recommend this to a boxers guy to try and wear. I would reccomend this to the awesome brief guys.
