Excellent boxers. The tapered legs set them apart.
I am so glad I ordered these boxers. They are comfortable and the tapered legs set them apart from ordinary boxers.

Big Disappointment
I have been wearing blended fabric Jockeys for years and have always felt very comfortable in whatever blend they've offered. These however, 55/45 cotton/polyester, have very little "give" requiring them to be straightened continually. In addition, they have a hem strip that doesn't give much, creating undue pressure on the thighs when sitting or changing positions. That may be fine on the full-fit designs, but it doesn't work for me on the Tapered Boxer. I'll not be wearing the two pair I purchased.

tapered boxer review
I am very pleased with the boxers. However, I am waiting to order more of the jockey pouch briefs because they fit way to high on the waist. Can you manufacture a lower rise pouch brief?

Still my Favorite at age 84, and since my Youth
The Fit is accurate for my size, height and weight.

I have been wearing: short-box, white for several decades. They are very hard to find in stores....until I checked the internet.
My improvement/taste: make the leg cuts straight, don't have them cut into "V"s. Everything else is great !

I have worn this style of jockey underwear for years and years. I like the fit, comfort, name it. I like everything about the product. My only wish for change is that you could simply order by selecting number of pairs and color. No two packs...four packs...variety of colors in a package etc.

I've been wearing these shorts for many years and continue to like the way they fit and feel. Thankfully,
Jockey still offers these despite all the crazy styles and colors they've gotten into. I'll have to buy elsewhere if these are dropped from the Jockey line.

I've been wearing white Jockey tapered boxers for over 40 years (not the same ones) and I like the fit and feel although in the last few years the waistbands start to deteriorate quicker than they used to and the elastic/rubber starts to come through and becomes uncomfortable. Have you changed the quality of your materials?

Is there a way I can just get the tapered boxer in either navy and/or black size small?
Denis M on Jul 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thank you for your inquiry. I do apologize, they are a prepackaged item and we are unable to get just all navy or all black at this time. Thank you and have a good day.
When are you going to start making these in all nylon, like you use to do. Thanks ?
William J on Jun 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thank you for your inquiry. I will forward your inquiry onto our merchandising and design teams. They have asked us to forward any consumer feedback or suggestion onto them. Often times if the demand is high enough they do look at bringing an item back. Thank you and have a good day.
The Canadian site does not have this item. Where are they available in Canada?

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.
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.
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.

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.
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
BEST ANSWER: Hi, it's nice to hear from you, .

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. On behalf of all of us here at Jockey, thank you for a conscientious reality check.

I am very sorry that you are unable to locate this item in your local stores. Department store make purchasing decisions based on what sells best in their stores. We offer them our entire collection and they pick and choose what they would like to sell. Unfortunately, the department stores in your area have chosen to not carry the white in this item.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!

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
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I am very sorry but we can not specify a manufacturing facility. We have several manufacturing facilities in different countries around the world. No one specific facility is responsible for any one specific item. I am very that there was a sizing difference with your items. Please call one of our personal shoppers at 1-800-562-5391 and we will be happy to go over replacement options.
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.
When will white tapered briefs be available?
Paula C on Nov 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I am showing that we currently have stock in white in sizes medium, large and X-large.
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.
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
The jockey product I am trying to replace has the number 61683 on it. What do I order?
