Rated 1 out of 5Â by NomFleur Major drop in quality
I have to agree with the other recent reviews of this item. I purchased the cotton boy brief previously (approx. 12-18 months ago) and the quality has really undergone a serious reduction. What used to be soft cotton (great for sleeping), is now thin and scratchy with poor stitching. Plus the short now rides up uncomfortably, and doesn't hold it's shape. I didn't mind the back seam down the middle of the short as I sleep in them, and wasn't worrying about them staying in place under clothing. But the recent lack of quality is very disappointing as I really liked this product, and planned to continue purchasing it. Not anymore. What happened, Hanes?

Rated 1 out of 5Â by NANCY6 CHEAP COTTON UNDERWEAR
I HAVE TO AGREE WITH THE OTHERS-HANES HAS CHANGED THE COTTON BOY PANIES FOR THE WORSE!
THE NEWEST STYLE-RIDES UP, THIN CHEAP COTTON, BAGS EASILY AND AS I WEAR EACH OF THEM, I THROW THEM AWAY.
THE LEG LEGNTH SEEMS SHORTER OR THE UNDER WEAR SRUNK TERRIBLY.
THE WAIST DOES NOT FEEL SECURE AND THE NEW BOY SHORTS ARE JUST AWFUL.
I BOUGHT 3 PACKS AND ONLY OPEND ONE PACK...THE REST ARE GOING TO A CLOTHES DONATION CENTER AS THEY HAVE NOT BEEN OPENED OR USED.
I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME, BUT NOW THAT I HAVE READ CONCURRING REVIEWS.....HANES YOU HAVE MADE A BIG MISTAKE IN THE NEW VERSION OF THE BOY SHORT.
WOMEN DO NOT LIKE CHANGE IN THEIR UNDERGARMENTS.
GO BACK TO THE OLD STYLE, THE OLD FABRIC WITH YOUR LOGO ON THE FRONT OF THE WAISTBAND.
I NOW TAKE GOOD CARE OF THE ONES I HAVE LEFT AND AM LOOKING FOR AN EQUAL REPLACEMENT FOR THE OLD HANES BOY SHORTS.
WHY DID YOU CHANGE THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE/ BAD BAD IDEA.
I WANT MY OLD HANES BOY SHORTS BACK...ANY ONE HAVE ANY IDEAS?

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Adnama Bring back the old boy short
The old boy shorts were the best, most comfortable underwear. I need new ones and I'm bitterly disappointed that they are no longer available. The new style rides up and has a seam up the backside. They are completely different and far inferior vs the boy shorts that were previously available. Even if a friend has recommended these to you, skip them. Your friend probably has the old style as well.
The old style was breathable cotton, didn't ride up, didn't show panty lines under pants. The seams went around the leg and never gave wedgies.
The new style, reviewed here, is an inferior fabric, has a seam up the backside so it goes ride between the cheeks, and bunches at the leg, making a horrible siloutte under pants - and even skirts.
There is another variation of Hanes boy shorts/briefs currently available with no seam up the backside, but it isn't cotton and doesn't fit as well as the old cotton boy shorts.
AWFUL! Why on earth did you change the style? Why on earth is the old style no longer available? PLEASE bring back the old boy shorts!
I have no idea where I'm going to buy my underwear now. There is nothing remotely like the old ones available. I'm going to have to spend more money searching. These boy shorts are in the trash - where they belong.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by ComfortZone Hanes now means POOR QUALITY!
I have always loved the Hanes women's boxer briefs, but they have changed them. In the past they had 2 seams in the back that ran at an angle along your cheeks, making them very comfortable, no ridding up the crack. Now they have a single seam running up the middle, very uncomfortable indeed. The quality of the cotton has gone down as well, they are thinner. All over the board with their products the quality has gone down.
