Based on the reviews, I ordered a four pack of these briefs. Based on the majority of reviews that say they fit as expected, I got the XL size (the same size I've worn for over 25 years in Haynes, JC Penney, and Calvin Klein briefs). Contrary to what the advertising says, they are NOT a "classic fit brief". Rather, they are more like low-rise briefs. The waist was OK, but the back and sides of the briefs came way up on my butt cheeks; so much so there was no way I could wear them. Since I'd already washed the garments, I could not return them. So, they went directly into the trash. If you look at the photo that accompanies this review, you can see how the white Tommy Hilfiger briefs compare against a pair of Calvin Klein classic briefs. The Calvins have been washed at least a couple of dozen times, but still fit great and haven't shrunk. And, the elastic in the legs still fits right (not too tight and not too loose). The Hilfigers made me feel like I was wearing a thong, they rode so high on my buttocks.
