Comfortable Underwear
Underwear was received in a few days after ordering. The fit is good but allow for initial shrinkage after first washing.

Failed Expectations
I have sampled all of the Jockey Big-n-Tall briefs. The 3D-Innovations are the best, but they are being discontinued. Since the staycool have the premium price (which the 3D-Innovations previously had), I thought they were they were the new premium brief so I tried a pair. These were the worst fitting briefs that I have tried. The product legs balloon around mine. The waist band initially fit correctly (otherwise I would have assumed that the size were too large because of the leg fit), but then expanded. Around midday, the briefs were sliding down my pants because of the poor fit. I guess that is one way to stay up to 3 degrees cooler. These are the first Jockey products that I will return. Like another reviewer wrote, the H-Fly is currently the best fit for the 2X and larger audience.

It seems like a lot of good thought went into these, but ultimately it's a good idea gone wrong. I like the sleek smoothness of the fabric. It seems like it would be great for sleepwear, but I think this style of brief was built for a smaller man than me.

As much as I like the comfort of the fabric, I'm disappointed in just about everything else. The waistband is not only unconfortable, it's not sturdy. It rolls, bends, and does not hold it's shape. The fit is sleek, but it seems like these briefs want to be a slim fit, not a big man brief. The length of the leg, the room through the hips, the proportioning - they all seem to come up short in size.

Big guys could use a staycool brief, and this is a fine fabric, but the overall feel of the brief is flimsy. I'm beginning to think that a "2X" size brief does not belong in the "Big Man" category anymore. When I've tried Jockey Pouch and H-Fly Midway briefs in the 3X-5X size range, I've been much happier. They seem cut and built to hold a big guy. The Staycools live up to their name in the fabric, but it doesn't feel like the construction is going to go the distance on a guy my size

Good quality brief but don't like fit
Love the fabric hate the way the top of briefs is cut too short. Briefs feel like they are always sliding down and sometimes they actually are!
These briefs were disappointing because the fabric is very good and these could be great if only they were cut the same as the big man pouch midway brief.

Very poor fit
The cut is very strange. Definitely not a good fit for a big man.

Horrible Product
You should have never discontinued the 3D Innovations series. I purchased these as a replacement for 3D and will be returning them to you. They are awful and not near as nice as 3D Innovations.

Very underimpressed
Love the material for it's breathability, but cut is too small. Based on my normal size, I need at least 2 times large size in these. Very disappointed in these and will not consider them further.

Quick service and deivery

Still great quality
Service was quick, just care for the local PO handling my stuff. Use UPS when you can. They are much better

Wanted to try design but not happy to low in front of waste.
Ray M on Feb 22, 2015
We live in Florida where it's hot and humid 5 months of the year and cooling underwear makes a huge difference in staying cool and reducing chafing.

A brand and quality I can count on.
Alfonso F on Feb 9, 2015
Bought these looking to find something similar to the Jockey® Pouch Big Man Midway® Brief - 2 Pack I had purchased several months ago. I've been very pleased with the Jockey® Pouch Big Man Midway® Brief - 2 Pack but live in a desert climate so wanted something a little cooler for the impending summer heat.
Marcelo M on Feb 8, 2015
Jockey is the best fitting brand for my Big man
S L on Feb 7, 2015
for a gift
Judy C on Feb 7, 2015
I like the longer legs. If you had them longer, I would buy those.
John D on Feb 7, 2015
I like Midway length better. Really did not have what I wanted
Richard C on Feb 6, 2015
needed underwear - so thought i would try these - since is not much selection out there for us big men.
J E N on Feb 3, 2015
Same as 1st choice above. Jockey Brand fits my middle aged body perfectly and also holds up and lasts despite the everyday wear & tear.
John V on Feb 3, 2015
i thought that these would be the same as the midway brief that i had ordered a couple of years ago but they was not they was to short in legs and would not cover my back end and kept slidding down when i walked

Wanted to try a different type of boxer brief. Staying cool is a big issue for me being a big and tall man.

john c on Jan 25, 2015
I like the Midway style
Stuart R on Jan 19, 2015
The fit is exact. They are comfortable. They wash & wear well. These are great when doing a lot of walking. Greatly reduce leg friction.
S H on Jan 18, 2015
These briefs stay put and don't ride up.
Christine T on Jan 18, 2015
These are all I wear. I am a big guy and as a big guy you know it is hard to find true to size comfortable clothes. Jockey never lets me down and the price is always fair!
T K on Jan 17, 2015
hopefully longer legs than the previous ones...longer the leg the better for me.
David S on Jan 16, 2015
Mid length and traditional fly front.

Why no other colors...such as green,blue,etc.?
Henry H on Jan 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Henry, Jockey has asked me to help answer your question, since I purchased this item in the past. They failed to let me know why they don't produce this excellent product in more exciting colors. I, like you, think they should ad more colors. My underwear drawer is filled with lots of Jockey underwear, but it's black and white. I did purchase some other styles from Jockey and they offered them in dark blue and light blue. I suppose that Jockey feels like big and tall people should just be happy to have underwear available in their size. Nevermind color options! Just be glad you can actually find underwear! Just kidding. Hope you find something that works for you!
I cannot find the "Coopers by Jockey Style 2562 skin temperate regulation' mens midway brief. They are GREAT!!! Are they available? If not what brief is closest to them? Thanks Bob Cowley
Bob C on Jan 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am so very sorry but the Coopers line was exclusive to Nordstrom's and has been discontinued. I suggest going with our low rise cotton midway. You can find this item at the following link:
pairs perfectly with:
