Bikini
I've worn this style of your product for many years and have enjoyed doing so. HOWEVER, I DO NOT like the revised model, at all! WHY did it need a re-design, may I ask? I'm curious. Sadly, in the future my underware purchases will not be from Jockey.

Most comfortable brief ever.
I've been a fan of the bikini brief since I was 19 years old. I've always found them fun, fashionable, and they always kept everything in place. Being 36 now, I was sad to see the original style discontinued, as I thought my favorite underwear was no longer going to be available. I was however excited to see they were updated in a new modern fabric, and fit. They aren't as low cut as the original fit but wow, THEY ARE COMFORTABLE. They feel so great all day. I will purchase more, and glad to see the new available colors as well. I highly recommend this to any guy who is a fan of the original bikini brief, and any one who is a little more bold in their underwear preference.

Great low rise brief
This is a great fitting brief and I hope Jockey will continue with it, although it is not a replacement for the Elance bikini and is not a true bikini. It is cut more like a low rise brief in the rise and leg openings. The fabric is heavier and there are front seams. It is great for a different brief to use in addition to the Elance and I wish Jockey still offered both. I have used the Elance bikini (and string bikini) for many years and would like to see it come back in its original form from years ago. Unfortunately the cut and fit of the Elance bikini changed over the years such that the product was unpredictable in fit, which may have contributed to a decline in sales leading to its retirement. The version from mid-90's to late 2000 was the best fit.
The only major complaint with this item is that the stitching in the current white/blue line color is abrasive inside the leg cut and can cause chaffing. I have not yet tried all the colors but that is one issue that Jockey should pay attention to for this product to succeed. The same problem occurred in the later productions of the Elance bikini, especially toward the end.
It would be good if Jockey would offer color packaging such that both garments are the same color, as some of the choices require purchasing an undesirable color to obtain a great one.
I hope to see this product for many years to come.

Terrific quality and true to size
These are made of great quality material. The old elance product was thin and variable in quality. This is smooth cotton, medium thickness, and with the right amount of spandex. My wife noticed them right away when when folding laundry saying they were good quality. I hope Jockey keeps making these for a long time to come. I agree with the reviews asking for more colors; white, maroon, plum, brown, beige, there are a lot of colors that would work.

Better than nothing
JOCKEY'S Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Bikini is not a bad replacement for the discontinued Elance Style. Although similar in style, I find that the cotton/spandex blend feels warmer and not as comfortable. I would prefer these if they were 100% combed cotton. As nice as this product is , I am still hoping that JOCKEY reconsiders and brings back The Elance Style. They were unique and one of a kind.

I wish you would keep making these.
My husband was very happy with his new underwear - and not only because his old one's were starting to look like someone used them for target practice. But, because we have been looking far and wide for this type of underwear. It seems that most stores have been phasing them out, and it is the only type he will wear. Will you please consider continuing them in your line?

BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thank you for your inquiry. I do apologize for the inconvenience. The Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Bikini are being discontinued. All we have left is XL. Thank you and have a good day.
How low is low rise? How wide on the sides?
Jj705 on Jan 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is a low rise but not extreme. About 10" from waist band to seam at bottom where front panel meets back panel. This is for Size Large. Sides are about 2 3/4" at narrowest point.
If you want more coverage order the regular brief (not the bikini). I have both (as well as the trunk style) and like the bikini most.
you show it in black but it seems to only be available in white??

How come Jockey discontinued the 100% cotton Elance ribbed bikini brief I used to buy around 2005? They came 3 in a package. It was the only style that fit me well and was comfortable, as I have large athletic upper thighs. I was looking at style 8481, but in reading the reviews, I don't think it'll fit me, and the reviewer said the stitching caused chaffing. What can you recommend that is close to the all-cotton Elance ribbed bikini brief that might work for me? Thanks!

Made with a front pouch?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, sort of. I can tell you my husband did not like these and asked me not to order them again. He prefers the Elance Poco Brief, which he says is way more comfortable. And yes, the Poco's have a no-fly pouch as well. The differences: low-rise vs mid-rise; both have a no-fly pouch, but the poco is roomier; the low-rise are 95% cotton/5% spandex, while the poco's are 100%cotton. Hope this is helpful.

How is the fabric on these? Is theRE a front panel? Are they see through like the Elance? Looking for bikinis that are not too sheer
A shopper on Apr 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Material is less flimsy than the Elance. I gave up on Elance in favor of these a few years ago.
There is a front panel (no fly) that has doubled up fabric for more coverage and support. Not sheer or see through but I must admit I have not tried these in white. I can't imagine the white are see through because of the double fabric front panel. I also note that the fit is better than others I've tried due to the stretch fabric containing 5% spandex. Breathable, seams are comfortable as is the waistband.
I hope this helps.
I live in Santa Monica CA. Which stores close to me carry your underwears?
Atom D on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. While we are carried at most major department stores, the best place to visit to find Jockey products, other than Jockey.com, would be our Jockey Outlet store locations. You can find the store nearest through our store locator at: http://www.jockey.com/ShoppingGuide/StoreLocator
Which is which? The image for the blue option is slightly longer down the sides than the image for the black option (which I think looks more bikini-style than the blue). Which one is the accurate depiction?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. I have taken a look over a sample of this item here in our offices, and the picture of this item in the blue is the exact representation of this style. Thank you for bringing this to our attention!
Waistband & Deceptive Preview Images, or is it just me? --- I've bought 2 packs (4 pairs) of these when they were extremely new/fresh on the shelf of the online store and initially thought they were going to be good. After a while though, you start to notice. There is something really off about the waistband from the pairs that I own. Whenever I would use the men's room, I noticed that there would be this moist feeling on my skin where the waistband digs in. Another concern is that after a few washes, the waistband has begun to roll. Is it just my pairs or would they be different now than when they were extremely new?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your question, and I am very sorry that you are having troubles with your Jockey Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Bikini. Every complaint we receive about any of our products does get forwarded on to our Quality Assurance department for review. Also, we do stand behind our products 100%. Please give one of our personal shoppers a call at 1-800-562-5391, and they will be more than happy to come up with a solution to the issues you are experiencing.
where are the xxl sizes ?
A shopper on Aug 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Although our Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Bikini is not available in XXL 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 your feedback, it really does help!
Why the specific color combinations provided? Jockey REALLY can't offer all combinations? Or Singles! I want Black and White, Black
And Grey, Black and White, Grey and Grey. And RED. ANNNND three packs! SO JOCKEY needs to offer Elance AGAIN! Poor sales...really. Couldn't carry style till they cycled back in favor? Thanks for nothing Jockey! What's WRONG their your marketing people? The CEO making the product choices? Finally, Jockey needs to start making their products Only in the U.S.A. again!
A shopper on Jul 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your question.

Our product design team has been monitoring popular merchandising trends, along with consumer feedback like yours, and so we are experimenting with more three-packs. There definitely is something to be said for the value proposition when each package contains a larger quantity of merchandise. I'll forward your online product review along to our design team as an additional source of information.

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. And so this feedback is compiled and included in feedback reports to senior management.

Also, we are looking to bring back the men's Elance Collection. They should hopefully be available by the end of the month on Jockey.com.

Hope this helps!
I notice small color selection, only one in large size. Is this one being discontinued now?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to for the inventory shortage on this item. I am happy to let you know though that our Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Bikini is no way shape or form discontinued at this time. You can expect to see this style's stock replenished very soon! Hope this helps!
Are you going to sell the cotton string bikini?
A shopper on Jun 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wish we could have found more people like you, who enjoyed our Men's Elance String Bikini, which was 100% cotton. 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.

But, the good news is that we have been informed that this style should be back available sometime in July as a Jockey.com exclusive. Hope this helps.
This a similar question to another one I asked. Will there be new colors for fall 2015?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question about our Jockey Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Bikini. Unfortunately, we aren't told exactly when new colors will be released for our styles, but generally it is coordinated with the release of our catalogs. I would suggest checking back at the end of June and the end of August. If we receive new colors, it would be at those times. Hope this helps
Really liked the elance Mens Bikini. I've tried the Low rise stretch and the microfiber versions.....
Not even close. When are you bringing the elance 100% cotton bikini back??
Mark P on Jun 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wish we could have found more people like you, who enjoyed our Jockey Men's Elance 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. We are expecting our men's Elance collection to return to our sales offerings here at Jockey.com as an exclusive online only item sometime before the end of the summer though! Hope this helps!
Are these available in white?
A shopper on May 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Although we don't offer our Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Bikini in white 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).
Follow up to my question about showing all the color versions of this brief (definitely not a bikini) ... First, thank you for the answer and plans to revamp the website. Why do you show what's not for sale? If you look at the picture on he left, the model is wearing a very cool blue; now look at the swatches on the right and you'll see that none of them matches the color on the left. I used to buy only Elance. But, when I'd go to the website (and the catalogue) the one picture you would show wouldn't match anything that was actually for sale, so I stopped buying Jockey. I hope when you revamp you'll only show items that are actually for sale.
George L on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry for the confusion. The color choice the model is wearing in this listing of our Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Bikini (the light vibrant blue with an orange trim around the waistband) would actually be our color selection Peacock Feather, which is available in the Orange Rose/Peacock Feather color pack. Thank you for your feedback regarding Jockey.com. I have forwarded that information up to our ecommerce team leaders as I know they depend heavily on the input of customers such as your-self. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
I can't find the lance poco brief, my favorite for many years. Is there an identical product?
A shopper on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. I sure wish we could have found more people like you. Due to poor sales performance our Elance Poco Brief was retired, and we have no more. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Our customers have been migrating to our Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Brief - 2 Pack (style 8492) (viewable at http://www.jockey.com. Just enter the style number in the "find" field in the upper right corner and click "find").
why discontinue the elance men's bikini? I will add my 2cents and say that I'm disappointed too. I have worn the elance bikini for at least 15 years. They were much more comfortable than anything else I have ever tried. If sales were too low to justify continuing, then upgrading aspects (like colors perhaps) to be more competitive would have been a better approach in my opinion. But retaining the essential characteristics (sizing, material, inner cotton, covered waist band, fit) are what made the product. I have read recent reviews of the "similar replacement". I'm not encouraged. I will try, but only one set. And will begin my search of other brands to find a suitable replacement. Maybe it will be Jockey, but from the reviews it does not sound highly likely.
Jon G on May 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I sure wish we could have found more people like you. Due to poor sales performance our Jockey Men's Elance Bikini was retired, and we have no more. Many of our customers who enjoyed this style have since begun to migrate to our new Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Bikini (style 8491). You can find this style online at: http://www.jockey.com/catalog?q=8491 Meanwhile I am forwarding a suggestion to our design team on your behalf that we bring our Elance collection back. I know that they depend on the input of customers such as your-self to help guide our sales offerings. Thank you for sharing, it really does help!
Why don't you show all the colors on the model like other sites do? I'm not going to buy what I can't see.
A shopper on May 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for that excellent suggestion! My manager said he will include your feedback in a report to our Web design team. They are planning to revamp the site to make it easier to navigate, so we really do appreciate your feedback, and displaying the colors of each style on the model pictured sounds like a great idea. Thank you for your feedback, it really does help!
Will you new colors for Summer 2015?
C N on Apr 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your question. Our new fashion colors are generally planned out more than a year in advance, but unfortunately, we are not told what the new colors will be or when they will be available. Generally, when we have new colors for our styles, it correlates with the releases of our catalogs. With that being said, if we are going to have new colors, I would suggest checking in the first few weeks of May or the first few weeks of July. Hope this helps.
I only wore the elance briefs. I ordered them online every six months or so. What is the closest thing to them?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I sure wish we could have found more people like you. Due to poor sales performance our Jockey Men's Elance Bikini was retired, though many of our customers have begun to migrate to this exact style as an excellent alternative to our Elance Bikini. I would certainly suggest our Low-Rise Cotton Stretch Bikini as a great alternative to that previously offered style. Hope this helps!
will these shrink any?? love the fill but lots of stretch and would these stretch out???
donny r on Apr 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That’s a great question! At Jockey we do not use preshrunk cotton in any of our style offerings. What this means is that while the product might be slightly large upon first wearing, after the first couple of washes it should shrink down to the proper size. With the elastic included in this styles fabric content, this particular style is designed to hold its shape true over the course of a day’s wear. Hope this helps!
My husband had been wearing Elance for many years until they were discontinued. We are both disappointed about this, since he continues to 'try' new styles and they just aren't close to the comfort and simplicity of the Elance. PLEASE, bring it back!!! This is more a beg than a question, I'll admit. Does anyone know of any brand that has something similar to Elance? esh
A shopper on Feb 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your message, and I apologize for the disappointment. I wish we could have found more people like your husband, who enjoyed our Elance Men's Collection. It was, alas, discontinued due to poor sales performance.

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.
is the bikini unit available in white cotton?
bill butleson on Jan 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry but this item is not currently made in white. I will pass your suggestion on to our merchandising team. Hopefully we will have the white available in the future.
