    Just wondering guy's opinion's of hanes versus fruit of the loom boxer briefs? I've always worn FTL but the store was out and got hanes for the first time. They're pretty much the same except that the fly doesn't close as much and I've actually popped out of them. What's been your experience with them/ favorite brand?

    they seem to wear out pretty fast -- it seemed like I had to buy replacements every three weeks -- crotch wore out pretty quickly

    switched to broadcloth boxers, and haven't the same problem

    I can't stand Hanes... keep flopping out of them. Much rather go commando at that point. Can only wear FTL if i'm gonna g with run of the mill underwear.

    ftl is the way to go, i used to wear haines, but i remember sitting down getting changed for gym class and the fly would pop open, so i ditched them.

    I found the Evolve brand boxer briefs at target, that are nice, the fabric has a great feel and they are comfortable and reasonably priced, its an off brand of 2xist... and they don't have a fly so you don't have to worry about falling out

    I get the hanes tagless comfort band boxer briefs.If anything the fly is to small to use and I've never popped out of it.As far as durability,I buy 2 dozen at a time and only have to replace them every 1.5 years.I also get my socks the same way cause sometimes it's 3 weeks before laundry gets done.

    Hanes is the worst--I always flop out of them. FTL was what I wore when I was younger, and although I've tried all kinds from jockey to calvin, I still feel most comfortable in good old-fashioned FTL

    FTLs don't stretch out by the end of the day like Walmart/Kmart Hanes. But Hanes Classics are nice. They are made with better material. But Jockey Midways are the best and last a long time. FTLs are good for work days.

    Thanks for the opinons. I definitely like FTL better now that I've worn them more. I think the confusion with hanes is that the comfort soft ones have a tiny fly but if you just get the regular ones it doesn't. I'll have to try some of the other brands. Ed69: totally agreed about hte time between washes, thats when I have to start wearing the pairs that are a little more worn out.

    I like Jockey brand. 2 or 3 times a year you can get them @ 25% off. A great buy.

    Anyone else notice the FTLs seem to be longer in the leg than Hanes?

    I don't buy FTL, they wear out. I usually buy Tommy H's boxer briefs or Ralph Lauren. I love both of those the best.

    Joe Boxer boxer briefs are the way to go.

    As far as the fly, if you get the normal Hanes boxer briefs, yes they fly is not larger. It's easy to pop out of them. If you get the comfort soft tagless boxer briefs, the fly is much larger and you won't pop out of them. They are also very stretchy, if you know what I mean.
