Love the tapered fit, but
If you read your online reviews the most often mentioned negative comment is, "the elastic waistband stretches out after very few wearings". I agree. This is not the way these were made in the past. It has nothing to do with the country they are made in, but the material and or the factories you are using. I have worked in the garment industry overseas and this is the way it is. I have worn these for years, but I promised myself if this doesn't change I'm through.

Only company that make the tapered boxer
I have been wearing the tapered boxer for about 25 years. My wife liked the look better than the standard boxer, so she bought my first pair. Over the years every company but Jockey has dropped the tapered boxer for just the regular boxers. Thank God for Jockey. This type of short is better looking, and more comfortable. It could use a little more elastic in the waist band though. seems like they stretch out too quickly. My wife has to fold over a small amount of material on the back and sew it up, to take up the slack. Otherwise they are perfect.

Pleased that you are still producing this product. It is not readily available in stores - in fact, most men's departments have never heard of this style. Please keep selling this online.

Too short. Waistline to crotch seam.
still a good product. don't try to save money by cutting down on the length i.e. Waist to crotch seam

Pleased they are still available.
Material is not as soft as it use to be, but still very nice. Also, the cut is just a little different, but fit is still good. Nothing is made as years past, is it?!? So thankful, we can still purchase them online. We can never find plain white ones in the stores.

A favorite for 15 years
This new cut is a bit slimmer than the ones I ordered a couple of years ago (I order a dozen at a time). Still very comfortable and suited for my needs since I'm in suits everyday. Great "boxer" product. Do Not Discontinue this cut. Thanks.

Tapered Bovers
These are just what I wanted. They are sometimes difficult to find in stores so it is great to find them online. They do seem to run a bit smaller than say 20 years ago, but I can always move up.

Please update your selection of patterns in the tapered boxer in medium. I need more but I like variety. Different patterns come in the other sizes. I wearing older patterns so if you add more variety to my size I'll load up. Thank you

JOHNNIE J on Nov 28, 2016

Where are these boxer briefs made. I have been purchasing these for many years and I have found that the last few packs I have purchased and made in Vietnam have been too tight in spite of the others I have in my drawer ??
Michsel K on Nov 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Michsel, I am very sorry to hear that your most recent purcahse has a sizing issue. Please call one of our personal shoppers at 1-800-562-5391 to assit in exchange or replacement.
what is the length of them from waist band to hem line?
Joe D on Aug 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Joe, I took the measurment of the item and the length is 14 1/2 inches.
After a long time, a couple of years or more it seems, the white in large is again available. I bought 2 2 packs at the jockey store.
Two comments. I am a 36 waist; the large are very loose in the waist more though the label on the product days for 36 - 38. The product seems more geared to the 38 waist. The should be either sized better or made to size. I did not try the medium which I did not consider as that size says 32 - 34, which I presumed would be too small for me. Comment 2. Theses are Jockey products. Made in China, the label says!!!? Bring back production to the United States where it belongs - the product and Jockey name deserve no less.
A shopper on Jul 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: On behalf of all of us here at Jockey, I want to assure you that we respect your concerns regarding preference for manufacturing in the USA. I will be forwarding this matter to our management teams to let your feedback be known. I'm also very sorry to hear those garments are not fitting properly. I would like to invite you to give one of our Personal Shoppers a call at 1-800-JOCKEY-1 (800-562-5391) to discuss replacement of those garments. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Why don't you make these tapered boxers in small 28-30 like you used to? Medium is too big.
B F on Jun 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry that we don't make this item in a size small anymore. I have passed on your suggestion to our product development team and hopefully in the future we will have this item in small again.
When will tapered boxers come back in size small?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Although our Blended Tapered Boxer is not available in small right now, our merchandising and design team is currently considering whether perhaps our collections are too restrictive in terms of size. So, they've asked us to forward on to them any feedback which would tend to confirm that hypothesis. So I will be forwarding your online product review on to them for review. Thank you for that feedback, it really does help!

Are these the same shorts that used to be called "slim guy" that the company made for years?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, shopper. They are just like the slim guy boxers, but I think better made, tapered for a better fit and very comfortable since they are made slightly shorter than the "store bought" boxers.
Is this the style that does not have a seam in the back?
Elizabeth W on Oct 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This style features a seamless rear design. The seams for this style are located on the side of the garment. Hope this helps!
A 2 Pack? Does that mean 2 shorts per pack. Or...Are they sold 2 Packs at a time.
A shopper on Mar 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question, and I apologize for the confusion. This particular item comes packaged two garments per pack, meaning that if you order one package, you will receive two pairs of underwear. Hope this helps!
Does this product have latex?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our product design director informed me that none of our products can be certified latex-free. The elasticizers we use are the culprit, containing at least trace amounts of latex. Consequently, she recommends in the strongest possible terms that you steer clear of our products for the sake of your own comfort and well being. While many products contain only trace amounts, they do nonetheless pose a threat, and we cannot in good conscience recommend them
Are these the same as the old Jockey Life? If not do you make anything comparable?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Jockey Life as I remember it was made of 100% nylon. This boxer is not the same, and Jockey does not make any 100% nylon boxers at this time. If you ask nicely, a customer service person will contact you and send you some free samples of what your options are. I did, and ended up with this one that was acceptable.
Why no tapered shorts in RED TARTAN anymore? ...bought many of this color in the past... love the product and the patterns in red!
Andy R on Jan 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We introduced our Blended Tapered Boxer in Red Tartan as a special fashion assortment, part of our "one-time-only" seasonal palette. And although our forecasters thought we made enough products to last for the entire reason, we received a huge--indeed unprecedented--response from our consumers, particularly among those who received our catalog. My supervisor checked with our manufacturing division, and unfortunately we do not have any other
Red Tartan stock available, and because it is part of a fashion collection, there is no additional stock planned for production this year. On the other hand, it's been so enormously popular that perhaps it may become available again (though our fashion assortments are planned more than a year in advance, so its return would not be for more than year). Hope this helps!
What are the lengths of the inseam and out seam of the product?
Robert F on Jan 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Inseam measurement is 4 1/2 inches. (Or at least that is what it would be if there were a seam there; the crotch is actually gusseted, to avoid an actual seam at that point, for comfort.)
Out seam measures 8 inches from bottom edge of waistband to the top of the side slit curve, then the length increases to 11 1/2 inches.
I'm a medium in tapered boxer. But I want a different pattern choice. I have all available in my size. Why can't you make my size in other patterns? please.
A shopper on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thank you for your inquiry. Although we don't offer our Blended Tapered Boxer in variety of different patterns right now, I am making a note of it in our database for our merchandisers. They've been looking for consumer insights to help them in their color selection, and so we really appreciate you taking the time to contact us. You never know -- your feedback may just change our underwear (at least in terms of color offerings). Thank you and have a good day.
The elastic in all of my 36/38 wear out before the time to replace the underwear why? Larry m

What do you have against plain white boxers? Impossible to find in stores and you overcharge for them on your website. We have to PAY you NOT to put color in????
Roger P on Jun 14, 2016

We do work hard to produce superior quality and comfort at an affordable price. But ultimately our success or failure is determined by consumers like you, and so we carefully monitor consumer feedback to see how we're really doing.

Where are the new briefs made? I Put in a large order two years ago that were made in Vietnam, and the rise is a lot shorter than the ones that were made in Indonesia (circa 2004). I used to buy a dozen pair every couple years, but had to return the last order because of the sizing difference.
Chuck V on Jan 10, 2015
