The best underwear ever!
I started buying these Classic Nylon Briefs in the 80's, and they are the best underwear I have ever worn. They are very comfortable and it feels like you are not wearing anything , while they provide excellent support.
I wish Jockey would bring them back. I tried all other underwear (cotton, silk, etc.) and they don't even compare.
Please bring them back.

Why did you stop after 5 decades
comfort and easy cleaning. won't stain. Originally manufactured beginning in the 60's and they were so well made that they would literally last for years. Before they were discontinued I bought 21 pairs of the cheaply made pairs and had them overstiched by a seamstress for $5.00 a pair. I hope that is enough to last me the rest of my life. I have worn them since I was 14 and now 64 but Jockey discontinued. 1st pairs were dayscottish plaid and some with cat prints. Sad

Classic Nylon Brief
I started wearing these years ago when I traveled overseas because I could wash them out at night and they would be dry by the next morning. I've learned to love them and wear no other styles now. I'm very disappointed that Jockey has discontinued them. Hope you bring them back!

Is there a substitute brief for men who wear nylon briefs?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! I wish we could have found more people like you, who enjoyed our Classic Nylon Brief. 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. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
those have any opening at the front or are they totally close?
A shopper on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! While our Jockey Classic Nylon Brief did feature a fly opening, unfortunately none of our currently offered Nylon brief styles feature a fly opening. While I wish we could have found more people interested in our Classic Nylon Brief style, it has unfortunately as of this time been retired from our sales offerings. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. I would like to invite you to give one of our Personal Shoppers a call at 1-800-JOCKEY-1 (800-562-5391) and we would be more than happy to assist you with exploring new options for these favorites.
I have a 30 inch waist, will the 28 to 30 inch brief waist be tight?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The brief doesn't strech at all. I have a 28 inch waist and can't get the small sized brief on. I'm 5'9" and 145 pounds and it doesn't go past my thighs. If you have small thighs and a flat backside it might fit but I'd say order a medium.
Are the sizes a true fit? When it says 30 inches is that same size as 30 inch jeans?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry but the classic nylon brief has been discontinued. I will pass on your suggestion that we bring them back. In regards to sizing for other style, yes, the sizes are true to size based on our size chart.
i m looking for mens "nylon breifs" classic bring them back when are they coming back???
A shopper on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thank you for your inquiry. I will forward your inquiry onto our merchandising and sales staff as they do like to hear consumer feedback and suggestions. Often times if a demand is high enough on a discontinued item, they do look at bringing it back. Thank you and have a good day.
How can i order these?
Nancy M on Sep 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thank you for your inquiry. I sure wish we could have found more people like you. Due to poor sales performance our Classic Nylon Brief was retired, and we have no more. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
Our customers have been migrating to our Classic Brief (style 9950) (viewable at Just enter the style number in the "find" field in the upper right corner and click "find"). Thank you and have a good day.
Do men's classic come in colors ?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting Jockey.

The style 1031 is no longer available. It was discontinued some time ago.
However, it was available in colors.
We carried it in red, blue, royal blue, beige, black, forest green, yellow, and white.

If you are looking for a full rise brief I do recommend the style 9950 as it is comparable to fit and comfort. If you are looking for a style to travel in for quick wash and dry then I recommend the Travel Microfiber Brief style 12609

Have a great day!
When will you restock?
