    Here's my take on all the 1-star reviews for these briefs and why:

    I initially bought a 3-pack through amazon.ca (I'm in Toronto), absolutely love them; then found them here on the U.S. site for much cheaper so purchased them again through a U.S. friend's account.

    Although the tags of both sport the same product number (R/N# 97404) the better-fitting first set are made in Thailand and are 82% cotton/8% spandex, while the U.S.-sourced briefs are made in Bangladesh and are 100% cotton.

    The first set (Thailand ones) sport the classic 2Xist "pouch" and fit the thighs of us bigger guys perfectly, maintaining their shape all day; while the newer designed Made-in-Bangladesh versions have a much smaller pouch and lose their shape in the legs within an hour or two of wear.

    Those of us that are fans of the classic 2(x)IST brief need to email the company's head office in Dayton NJ ([email protected]) and voice our disappointment at the loss of the original product.

    My husband is a gasoline welder and climbs in and out of holes and trenches in the ground all day and as a result, he was pulling his groin muscles. I did some research on the matter and was told that good supporting underwear would help. I bought the 2xst briefs and have bought nothing but 2xst for 6 years now and my husband hasn’t pulled a groin muscle since. These briefs are comfortable, well made, long lasting and great for support. My son also wears them and is also impressed.

    As with many men, I'm accustomed to the underwear I grab from my drawer and wear everyday. These were neither the brand nor the color. But they may soon be. Fit is good, briefer than their predecessors which is fine with me and the color.....well, in a drawer full of white and black, hard to notice them. The main thing any man cares about is...are these comfortable and these are. They conform to me without clinging. Easy to sit in for a long period-think about it, this is a point that really counts. Apparently I like them as I just ordered three more pair in three different colors.

    My husband bought a pack of these boxer briefs last year and now he won't wear anything else. He told me that he wishes he had known about these before because they are the most comfortable underwear he has ever tried. He even asked for more for Christmas this year! Who asks for underwear for Christmas?! (And yes, he did ask for new socks too, and got them as well!) I have to say that my husband gives the 2(x)ist boxer brief 2 thumbs up.

    I've ordered these briefs before and enjoyed them. But I bought these in May and these recent ones are smaller, and the fly is so small I can barely get three fingers into them in order use the fly. The fly hole is too small on both ends, so after navigating this narrow fabric, there's no room to find my stuff in there. I resorted to pulling these briefs up from one of the legs so I could accomplish my goal.

    These appear to be a new style. I have been wearing 2xist underwear for at least 10 years. I needed some new ones. These are NOT the same as the regular fit. They are low rider, there is no "pouch" for the equipment, and by midday, you will be wearing a short boxer style g-string. Not comfortable at all. I wish I could return them, but well, they are underwear.
    I will be re-ordering the style I more traditionally was wearing.

    The main difference I have found is these do not have a "pouch" for lack of a better word for your business. The seam is flat, causing one's business to go either into your left, or right leg. I have had other 2xist boxer briefs where the front seam is concave (as seen from the inside) allowing a place for one's business to be.

    I wore these once, and they have been promptly washed and placed into duty as oil rags. Complete garbage on the redesign.

    Was a bit dismayed by this product, having been a wearer of 2(x)ist for several years. Turns out that the "Essential" briefs are 100% cotton. No big deal for some, but for those folks seeking a bit more support for the equipment, there is effectively no support. Seek out the 2(x)ist "Stretch Core" boxer briefs instead, as they are constructed with some spandex that provides the support some of us seek.

    I have only worn each pair once and they were fine. As they are 100% cotton it remains to be seen if they hold their shape after repeated washings. Am happy at the moment.

    Careful, you might be purchasing the wrong product on this listing:
    These 100% cotton 2xist boxer briefs are NOT the very popular "Stretch" models, but are in fact their "Essentials" briefs, which appear the same and are both sold in popular black 3-packs -- note that the listing doesn't specify "Stretch" or "Essentials" -- if you're a fan of the Stretch briefs like me, you will absolutely hate the Essentials, they lack the popular "Supportive Contour Pouch" and lose their snugness after the first couple hours of wear.

    Here is the proper link for the Stretch boxer-briefs:

    Got a 3 pack of these from TJ Max once & loved them. So I had to get them again but in black. So comfortable & no riding.

    Comfy. Let's everything hang loose, yet out of the way. Feels like wearing nothing

    I like the fit.. these are the only brand and style of underwear I own. They are simple but well designed. I had been buying them for years at Century 21 department store in New York. Now that I can find them online from Amazon in Canada. I will stop wasting valuable time shopping for underwear when I visit the Big Apple.

    Exactly as expected

    Large fits big and loose strech and don't stay in shape. Feels uncomfortable very disappointed.

    Didn't like that it pretty much rode up and turned what looks like the leggy portion into normal briefs.
