Rated 5 out of 5Â by nothingformal Big and Tall makes all the difference
I normally buy my underwear (briefs) in the store and had never noticed that there was a separate section for big and tall (I have a hard time buying shirts at Kohl's because there is hardly any selection of tall sizes). This time I was buying on-line and was prompted to click "If you liked this, then you'll love...". So I checked it out and ordered my regular size in big and tall. Wow, what a difference! Even though the size is the same, the overall cut is different - in a great way. Great fit around the legs and waist. I always wait several months before reviewing anything so I can make sure a product doesn't disintegrate in the laundry or something, but these briefs are a sure thing.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by NCCEJ Inconsistent fit and quality
After wearing Hanes briefs for over 50 years, I was very disappointed by the quality of my latest purchase. Out of 18 pair, only a few fit properly. Some had leg holes that were too big with minimal elastic, some had a fly that stayed open, and others had the seam in the rear of the waistband overlap so there was a lump. I've even tried exchanging packages and have found the same circumstances. I thought after upgrading from the cheaper Hanes briefs to the classics, I would find much better quality control. I will continue to try to find a style and size that satisfies my requirements.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by JustAnotherShopper Leg holes need better support
At first, we bought the Hanes less expensive pack and the quality was very poor (material thin, leg holes large, and size ran very big). Because we like cotton and the Hanes brand, we tried again. Must admit that we're still a little bit disappointed. The material on these was much improved (soft and better quality). The size was a bit better but the leg holes were still very loose with no form. Have to say that Hanes usually does a very good job with the fit, but they have really missed the mark with the new design of the basic tighty whitey. Please improve fit in leg holes.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by AC63 Very Poor Quality
I have been purchasing Hanes briefs for about 55 years. In that time I have gotten good fit, top quality and good wear.
I usually discard the briefs when the elastic in the leg openings wears out. Occasionally the material wears out first.
With my previous good experiences, I purchased several packages of briefs -- seven to a package. Coming right out of the package, I have noticed that two or three pairs have had defective elastic in the leg openings. Some of the briefs become wearable after a few washings but others have to be thrown out.
I recommend that the company improve quality and stop selling very poor merchandize.
