Big guys want style, too!
I love string bikinis. I'm not trying to look sexy or anything--at 6'3" & 245 lbs I'm never going to be confused with the guys modeling these things--the simple truth is I just don't like a lot of "material". I can't stand boxers or trunks or the traditional "tighty whitey" styles. Most manufacturers dont seem to understand that us big guys might like something a little skimpier that offers support and comfort, but Jockey got these right! I used to Jockey Sport string bikinis MANY years ago and hated it when the line was discontinued, but these Elance strings are the best I've found since then. Thanks, Jockey!
(P.S. Some of us guys like colors other than blue, black, white and gray!)

Keeps me cool and wicks away moisture during games
Great for working on suntan, traveling, working out, around the house or in the garden/yard.
Made of 100% cotton and NOT binding.
Who could ask for anything better.

Not The Same...
I've bought this style of underwear for the past 5 years. They WERE the most comfortable, but about 1 to 2 years ago Jockey must have switched manufacturer. Instead of a white band/white briefs, the band went to black. Of course the color change had no affect, but the fit was no longer "full coverage". I have a 33" waist, yet needed to order an XL to make sure both the front and back had the right coverage. Seems like (if they got a new manufacturer or vendor for these) that the company decided to scrimp on the material by cutting off a good 1/2" off the material (which I'm sure could add up to big money). Unfortunately this means I need to find a new company that makes this style but has man-sized coverage. Sorry Jockey... but you need to watch what's going on (a lot more "quality control").

The best in comfort and style
The string bikini has been my underwear of choice since it was introduced in the late 1980's. My underwear drawer has a weeks supply of this brief plus one or two more Jockey styles. I have seen several changes from a narrower waist band to a wider heavier one which was superior to the present one. With the string you almost feel like you are not wearing anything becasue of the freedom of nothing on your legs. PLEASE do not stop making this style. I have worn a lot of Jockey styles but this one is the BEST!

simple support makes this one a winner
I normally wear boxer briefs but found my workouts in the gym to be missing some support. I decided to give these a try, and oh what a difference! I am glad I did try these and already bought another package. I like the extra firm support these bikinis offer however I would not consider them a 'string bikini' (but that's just me). The elastic band is a good method of keeping the underwear in place during high intensity movements. The full coverage backside is indeed better and stays in its place. I may even consider wearing these in the tanning both.

Jockey string bikini 2-pk
I was very pleased when my Jockey string bikini arrived. I purchased 4 pair and they arrived very quickly. I love wearing these underwear. They fit very nicely. I like walking around the house with nothing on but my Jockey bikinis. I wish that you would go back to putting a white band on the top instead of the black. They feel great and I love the cotton. Thanks again and tell your customer service department that when I call them all the people are very polite and helpful. Thanks for bringing the Jockey string bikini back in cotton. Floyd the DJ

Fix me please:-) :-)
1. Need more of a pouch in front
2. Need single panel in front or install cooler mash panels

This should fix the problem for this item

This could be a real seller ////but please fix it :-) :-) :-) :-)

Not Bad, Not Great.
Thought these would be fun for laying around the house and really trashy tan lines. Only problem is that the "basket" part of the underwear doesn't really *contain* everything; should have made them slightly larger.

Extra room please
I like the fit around the waist and there's enough coverage on the back...the problem is in the front there's not enough room for all my junk. I'm not packing heat, but there's a difference between snug and strangling.

Why would Jockey cancel such a popular style? Jockey has lost my business after 25 years.
Mark B on Sep 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry that we discontinued your favorite style, Mark. Thank you for your suggestion tha we bring it back. I am passing your feedback along to our product development team and hopefully we will bring them back.
Why discontinue the only underwear that fits athletes in the product line? The rest of your products simply bind up on those of us that are physically fit. 5' 7", 195 lbs. 4% body fat, size large. Bring them back please.
Mark S on Sep 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Great news! Jockey men’s Elance products are back! Just click here:'s%20elance
Why did you stop making men's string bikini underwear ? Actually you and everyone else. People still like the string bikini (not thong or jock strap).
A shopper on Oct 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry that we stopped making your favorite Jockey item. Due to poor sales we were forced to discontinue the style number 1005. We are constantly looking at consumer feedback to drive our future product decisions. I will pass your suggestion on to our product development team.
Does jockey still sell elance bikini for men?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2014

Elance is only available in a size small for months, what's the story?
Jim T on Aug 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jim, I am very sorry to be the bearer of bad new but the men's Elance collection (including the string bikini) has been discontinued and the size small is remaining stock avaialble. I will pass a suggestion on to our product development team that we bring back the Elance String bikini.
Count us in on the disappointed customers who miss the men's sting bikini. It's the most comfortable option for men who need full range of movement. Is it possible to bring them back?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your email. I wish we could have found more people like you, who enjoyed our Men's Elance String Bikini. It was, alas, discontinued due to poor sales performance. I ran a quick scan on inventory in our warehouse and our outlet stores (sometimes we can find discontinued products there). But no luck: there's not a single piece to be found. Sorry about that.

I wish I could refer you to something else, but unfortunately, we have nothing else quite like it. It was unique (which no doubt also explains your determination to find it amid our array of other products).

Meanwhile, we will pass your feedback on to our merchandising and sales staff as products are often brought back when consumer demand is great enough.
why don't you make the string bikini with a contoured pouch for those of us that are endowed or larger than most? I love the Elance string bikini but need more room.
Morgan T on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Be nice to have a bigger pouch
You made a big deal via today's email blast that Elance is back. I went to order the string bikinis, but there is nothing available but black. If they're back, why only one color? I don't care for black ones.
RICHARD A on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your question. We will be offering the Jockey Men's Elance String Bikini in white as well, but because we received such a demand to bring this style back, we are putting the colors available online as soon as we received. We ended up receiving the color black before we received white. We should hopefully have the white available in the next few weeks.
when will more XL elegance string bikini for men arrive?
A shopper on Aug 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I am very sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the Men's Elance collection (including the string bikini) has been discontinued. We will not be getting any more stock of the size XL for this item.
what colors are the letters on the waist band?
mark e on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! The lettering featured on our Elance String Bikini will be the same color as the waistband. In this case, it would be a matte black. Hope this helps!
The new Jockey string bikini shows a black waistband, but the description says white like the last offering???
A shopper on Jul 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! At this time our Elance String Bikini features a black waistband and white body as pictured when selecting the color pack white. Hope this helps!

BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thank you for your inquiry. The Elance String Bikini came back a year ago. Thank you and have a good day.
Is the lettering black on the black waistband per the photo or white per the description?
jayh3 on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question. The lettering will be in white, as in the product description on the product listing. I do apologize for the confusion.
I want to know if the pouch is the same color of the brief or if it is lined? I would prefer it be same as the the Elance Bikini 3 pack

The pouch isn't big enough in most underwear for my hubby. Would ordering a size larger give more room in the pouch area?
Rena N on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. While generally ordering a larger size will result in a bigger pouch area, it will also have an effect on the waistband measurement as well. If for any reason your purchase doesn't work out, I'd like to invite you to give one of our Personal Shoppers a call at 1-800-JOCKEY-1 (800-562-5391). We would be more than happy to assist you in this matter as all of our purchases are 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
