If you have bought men's underwear at any retail store than you know that they are marking up prices about 50%, or so it would seem. Besides the obvious value of getting a pack of 5 quality boxers for well under $20 bucks. I was also looking for an equivalent substitute for the Hanes Tagless, ComfortSoft, soft knit boxers that I had worn for the past couple of years and had grown very fond of, they were my go-to boxers.
I like a fit that gives some breathing room for the boys down there and this style of knit boxer does just that. For whatever reasons I decided to try the 'Fruit of the Loom' (FOTL) product which appeared to be very popular in this category on Amazon and had decent reviews, in fact I'm wearing them now as I write this review (sorry TMI).
I can now honestly compare both my old fav the Hanes ComfortSoft and the new (to me at least) FOTL soft knit boxers with the Super-Soft waistband.

1. I washed the FOTL'S as directed and put in dryer; there was no shrinkage that I could discern.
Hanes have similar characteristics and have never shrunk in the wash and dry process.

2. As far as comfort, both brands seem equally comfy; the waistband on the FOTL's is a tad beefier than the Hanes but not necessarily anymore comfortable; then again it seems as though the FOTL's are ever so slightly heavier overall, its a close call.
As to the fit both brands are equally good; I have a 34'' waist and bought medium in both brands, the fit is perfect for me. I have bought medium in other styles such as the Hanes Classic Tagless briefs and found them to be too restrictive for my likes.

3. I gave the FOTL's a 4 instead of a 5 because I think I'm still biased a bit towards the Hanes and prefer them in the warmer months like we are experiencing now in SoCal. The FOTL's are a very close second and I think there are some who might prefer them over the Hanes due to their slightly heavier construction, although I'll have to see how they hold up over time. The Hanes have proven at least to me that they hold up after multiple washings and use.

4. All in all I like both of these brands and would buy either one again based on the comfort factor alone, and I'm done buying any underwear in retail stores.

Highly recommend these boxers! This is our second pack! The waistband is what seals the deal! Color variety is added benefit. will purchase these again.

They feel great on me skin, and I really like the fact that they feel like I have nothing on they're really light-weight and I like the feeling because I hate when boxers ride up or are too bulky. But I just like the material on them. Best boxers ever, and first time I buy my boxers online too. Love the soild colors too.

I was searching for new boxers that would fit around my thighs comfortably. I started lifting weights about a year ago and my thighs increased in size to the point that my old Hanes boxers would bind up uncomfortably. I'm 5'11" 190lbs with a 34" waist. I bought the mediums and they fit well on the waist and are roomy in the thigh. Very comfortable.

I've tried a lot of different brands, types and sizes of boxes through the years, but these are some of the best I have worn. They are really comfortable, especially with the tag being on the outside and not inside. These boxers are also very gentle on the skin, wash well, and are not so tight where they are uncomfortable. Try them out!

Ok, I'm giving these boxers four stars even though they drive me insane, because they are well made, and are comfortable. What's not to like?

I'll tell you what's not to like. The label is on the outside front, rather than the inside rear. In my 40+ years of experience, this is the first time I've seen such a thing, and it challenges my boxer wearing paradigms. I guarantee, if, like me, you align yourself while getting dressed, by the label, you WILL find yourself at a public restroom, standing at a urinal, only to realize you've got no flap through which to conduct operations.

I promise you that you'll go to work at least once not realizing your underwear is inside out and backward, and you'll feel like a clown when your significant other asks you why you've got a little hatch in the back of your underpants.

I received a horrible selection of colors, nothing like the earth tones pictured. I got a bright red, bright blue, bright teal, grey and dark blue. Only the grey and dark blue looked somewhat like the picture. The other colors were garishly loud.
Also I say somewhat like the picture because in all cases the waistband was grey instead of the nicer contrasting color on some of the boxers pictured. So beware if you were hoping for a similar color selection, it will be a crapshoot.

I bought these to wear to bed. The color selection was good, and they are comfy and soft. My issue is that after wearing them only a couple of nights, a hole developed in the crotch.

I'm handy with a needle, but if you are looking for extremely durable underwear, these might not be the one. I haven't had any problems with the other 4 pairs, so I may have just gotten unlucky.

Well made, and relatively inexpensive for the quality! A+

Stands up to multiple washing well. Very comfortable! I highly recommend.
