They both serve the same purpose and at first glance look almost identical. But given a closer look there are two noticeable differences:
1. Despite the stated size, the two brands are quite a bit different in dimensions. I’ve included a photo of the two brands side-by-side with actual measurements of the key areas. Note that one brand is not uniformly larger or smaller than the other … some dimensions are larger and some are smaller.
2. See-through. This is a bit difficult to capture in a photograph but when held up to the window the Fruit of the Loom pair was easier to see through than the Hanes. That may make a difference to some guys and not to others. To me I felt the Hanes had a little more “body” to them which translated into them sagging a little less and contouring to the body a little better. The differences are very small though.
The size differences may be more important to some guys. The photos are for the “large” size of each brand. Note that the Fruit of the Loom has a full inch larger leg opening. Depending on if your thigh is thick or thin at that point it can make a difference about holding everything in place, or on the other hand it might result in an uncomfortable tightness in that area.
Note that the Fruit of the Loom is smaller at the waistband but substantially higher from bottom of crotch to the top of the waistband. The Fruit of the Loom is also taller from the top of the leg opening to the top of the waistband. Both of these measurements mean that the Hanes will ride lower on the hips than the Fruit of the Loom.
Both brands are too close to call in terms of how well they are made, in other words they are what you expect for the price.
The prices for both brands change frequently. I was going to buy another pair of the Hanes and on the day I was going to order the price was double what I paid last time (which is twice what the Fruit of the Loom was selling for). That’s why I chose Fruit of the Loom this time. All things considered this is a product that I would buy based on price more than I would for any differences in the item itself. Whichever is priced lower will be the one I buy next time.
For the last couple of years the "New" sizing is either too small or too large. At first we thought maybe they put the wrong size labels on the pack of Large he got (at Walmart), and returned them. Next pack was exactly the same. Then we tried Amazon. Nope. Same problem. Then he sized up as per the reviews here. Nope.
So now (and for the past year and a half), the waist bands and leg openings are either too small on the Large ones (used to fit 38-40, now re-sized as 36-38), and the leg openings are way too big on X-Large ones (used to fit 42-44, now re-sized as 40-42). They also seem to be either shorter in the rise, or higher on the leg, or the crotch is too long, or something. The material is thinner and the elastic is crap. Holes appear within 6 months as the material pulls away from the band. The underwear used to last 5+ years. Yes we tried other styles from the FOTL brand and nothing else fits well. Now he has a drawer full of ill fitting underwear that is uncomfortable.
Why couldn't you have just kept them the same and called them "Classic", and put out a new re-sized line for "Modern" (or some such word... like maybe the new Corporate Greed line)?
Congratulations, FOTL, now you are just like the other brands that don't fit well and wear out fast... which was why he was a loyal customer for DECADES: because your underwear USED TO FIT, and it used to last for a few years. Thanks for restyling and destroying what has worked for my husband (and so many other men from what I've read) for 50+ years.
