3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing, but ok., October 31, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hanes Men's Classics 5-Pack Dyed Exposed Waistband Knit Boxer - Colors May Vary (Apparel)
the description is a bit misleading. the image is of all gray/black boxers, but i received a random assortment of colors & styles. there's probably some text stating this, but i did not notice where this was made clear. while not what i was expecting, the colors & patterns are actually pretty nice. i ended up with 2 dark blue & white stripey patterned pairs & some various grayscale ones. fit is ok, but i'm typically the very definition of "medium" for all things clothing.

all in all, these are pretty good for a pack of cheap bulk boxers. what was most confusing was the packaging. it has the most baffling highlight i have ever encountered on a product to date: the packaging clearly and boldly states that it is a RESEALABLE BAG. seriously: there's a ziplock-style closure seal on the packaging. i wish Amazon would let me upload a customer photo of this bizarre packaging highlight. why on earth would i ever need a resealable package of boxers??!?

like, do they go bad when exposed to oxygen? will they become sentient & escape? should i be concerned that failing to reseal the unused portion of these boxers will accelerate climate change? is reseal-ability important to keep things out, OR KEEP THE BOXERS IN?

WHY, Hanes, WHY???!?! WHAT DOES IT MEAN?! DID I JUST BUY PANDORA'S BOXERS AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!???!!!!!???!?

Probably in case you want to send them back? Some of these items offer free returns if you don't like the product.

Monk (TV character) would have liked the package. He could have washed them and then kept them separate from the non Hanes.

Interesting that they shipped something not conforming to to their listing picture. I recently bought this 5-pack at Target (for only $16.49 + tax, BTW), and the product was exactly as pictured. Except I didn't get a "resealable" bag like you, LOL. Although in the past, I know Hanes and Fuit of the Loom have used resealable bags...

Digression: Whatever happened to the BVD brand, which I though at one point had the best fit out there (including "enough room" in that strategic spot)? I know at some point in the mid-1970s Fruit of the Loom bought the BVD brand, but it hasn't been out there for some time (maybe since Fruit of the Loom was sold).
