Great fit, lousy quality
I wear these every day and love the fit and design, especially the horizontal fly. I have pretty much worn these exclusively for the last 8-9 years. I am so glad to see other reviewers are having the same problem with this product wearing out quickly. I have been sending my worn out underwear back to Jockey for years now and asking them to please upgrade the seams and quality of fabric, but it's pretty obvious that they won't. Instead, they send me free replacements and an apology letter. So, I encourage everyone to do the same. Send in your expensive, worn out underwear and ask for replacements. Maybe then they will do something

My Favorite Skivs
I have worn Jockey Midway Briefs for almost 20 years. These were quality underwear back then. they are still great underwear but seem to tear at the seams rather quickly. I just purchased ten pair and four are already tearing at the crotch seam. The only reason the other six aren't torn is because they are still in the packages, unopened. I have tried buying a larger size but they were too large and they too wore out quickly. What a bummer. With this said, I still buy Jockey Midway Briefs because they are comfortable, and longer than all others. I've tried many brands and always come back to Jockey. Jockey stands behind their product and the sales are always great and makes up for the untimely wear.

Midway brief elastic unraveling
I been wearing the same style jockey briefs for a long time. but over time the quality seems to be deteriorating. This last batch seems to be the worst. One day after wearing the waist band started to unravel. Stitching started to come apart. I now have to go looking for another brand. It seems Jockey has put quality out the window. It is a shame. They use to be a good brand who care about quality.

Patent-worthy design
Pardon my language, but the pouch fly is the ultimate design when it come to fishing out your junk to take a wizz. i kid you not! Everything else that has been done before is lame. And, after you're done, everything dumps back into the zone of excellent comfort and support. Great cotton blend for breathablity, and the mid-thigh length to minimize chafing between the legs. It's impossible to find a better pair of men's underwear. Sure, some may complain about the short life of these underwear, but we have to be honest about the gain in comfort in exchange for durability.

I've tried the synthetic and moisture-wicking version, but it doesn't compare to the cotton blend version--especially for those who live in relatively low-humidity regions like the Pacific Northwest. I wouldn't trade this set of underwear for any other.

Jockey Midway Briefs beat the heat.
Three day delivery. Packaging very good. These are the best briefs on the market. Florida's climate means sweat, and these shorts hold up great in the heavy heat.

Best underwear money will buy
I have purchased these for years now. Tried many, many others but these are by far the best fit, keep you junk in check does not ride up and the waste band is the best, stays where it belongs. Really have to say, what I like best is your "boys" stay put. They do not slip here or there just very comfortable underwear.

I actually am looking for something like this product that has compression in the leg portions. Does Jockey have such a product?
Patrick K on Dec 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The ones you are looking at (cotton) do NOT have compression in them. The other pouch Midway brief I like much much better (Microfiber) but while they offer some compression they are not true compression shorts. I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle and the surgeon wants me to wear compression shorts. I am having trouble finding them.
What is the waist size of 2xl?
A shopper on Nov 30, 2016
I only wear Jockey Midway briefs! I wish you made them in a low rise. I tried one of the low rise and thought it said midway but the legs were shorter. I have large calfs and the shorter ones ride up on me, it's very uncomfortable to say the least. I guess I am short waisted. Do you think they will ever make low-rise with the longer leg legth? Regardless Jockey is my brand!
John B on Sep 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thankyou for you inquiry. I will pass on your suggestion onto our merchandising and sales staff. If demand is high enough for a low rise with longer leg lengths they will definitely look into selling them. Thank you and have a good day.

Why can you make a underwear that the elastic stay up for a person with big belly ? My husband, like your classic brand, but it roll down when he sits down. Maybe with better elastic .we like jockey we been buying them for a long time .
A shopper on Jun 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think the elastic band is the problem as you want both support and comfort. I think short of putting a belt on your underwear the band that is on these underwear are about as supportive and comfortable as you're going to find.
