My husband, as with many men I suspect, is extremely picky when it comes to the boxers that he wears. Not briefs, not boxer briefs, but boxers. The waistband has to be just so, as well as the seat, the length, and the fabric. You get the idea. Anyhow, I bought him a package of these Hanes classic men's boxers and held my breath. He could not have been more pleased. Which made me pleased! The waistband and sizing was perfect and the fit and length were just right. In our house, I am the one who does the laundry and I can tell you that these hold up extremely well. Even after multiple washings, the color doesn't fade nor does the waistband lose its elasticity, which is one problem we ran into with other brands that shall remain un-named. There is no fraying of material around the legs or fly. The only thing that happens is the material gets softer every time you wash them. Which means, of course, that these boxers get even more comfortable, if that is even possible. Both my husband and I are very pleased with this brand and will definitely be purchasing more in the future.
