    They look really comfy and their collection of undies reminds me of A&F's undies...I say go ahead and buy a pair.

    They look really comfortable, except for possibly an itchy tag in the back. Buy one, try it out, make sure they're still a good fit after they've been washed a time or two, then make the big purchase.

    Hollister is off the hook. They have the best dressing rooms. One time the guys dressing rooms were closed, so they told me to go to the ladies side. And for those of you who dont know Hollister, these arent ordinary fitting rooms. Its just a curtain in a row of about 4 or 5. I was changing with the ladies. Haha

    There is no acutal male or female fitting room. They're unisex most of them have been remodeled into normal fitting rooms (enclosed with doors) as parents were complaining about being able to see the silhouette of thier daughters. Rather lame if you ask me.

    any who... those are probably the same as Abercrombie. Which are rather roomie and very comfortable.

    I actually used to work there, and I own three pairs of the boxers. They are really confortable, expecially under baggy clothes. But I wouldnt recomment them if youre used to wearing tight jeans.

    I would agree. They are confortable for baggy clothes or just lounging around in, but not great if you wear tighter clothes. Just my 2cents...

    dvharris or swimmingjock,

    you guys both mention them being good for under baggy clothes. am I under the wrong impression that these are boxer briefs? or are they basically knit boxers? it's too bad Hollister doesn't use models in their pics. :tongue:

    Thanks but I'd rather stick with something cotton based. And the price is a bit above what I'm looking for too.

    Dude these (ex officio) are really better than cotton -- I did not think it possible either. they keep u dry and comfortable in all climates -- jsut like the ad says. and because u can wash in the evening and wear the next day, they are cost effective. Very easy access too.

    That would make sense, since Abercrombie owns Hollister. :smile:

    I actually had the mis-fortune of working for Abercrombie for a time when I was in college, and while it was before the launch of Hollister, most everything in Hollister is the same quality and fit of Abercrombie, like their knit polo shirts, jeans, and tees; without the Abercrombie name on the front and of course the Abercrombie price. However, owning stock in Abercrombie, Hollister beats Abercrombie up on sales and Abercrombie has actually closed stores so that they could remodel and open Hollister stores up in the former Abercrombie spaces. Depending on the price diff, I might try a pair of Abercrombie boxer briefs though too. I actually like my AnF underwear.

    Ok, I did a little digging on the net and found the actual box shots. The 'crest canyon boxers' seem a little more like long boxer-briefs, while the 'el morro boxer briefs' seem a little more like long trunks. I'll probably pick some up tomorrow.

    Only question I have left, for the 2 of you that have tried these before, is weather they tend to run a little loose or more on the tight side. I'm slim and don't want them hanging off me.

    I have a '31 waist and wear a medium in both Abercrombie and Hollister boxer briefs. Normally I wear a small in FOTL briefs, if that helps at all. AnF and Hollister sometimes are weird about sometimes not putting a size chart online or in their stores.

    I do part time work at AnF and we have very similar kinds. I would say go by there and check out the ones we have.. there are different materials used. Though, if you gotta big ol dick.. you'll prolly be too constricted. I stick to boxers.. so comfy.

    Just an update...

    I tried these out and gotta say they're amazing. The 'El Morro' style is definitely cut like trunks, and the 'Crest Canyon' style is cut like boxer-briefs. As for the material, They're a blend of very soft cotton with a hint of spandex so they hold their shape very well, especially compared to 100% cotton. They accommodate my size just fine and the pouch does a good job of keeping everything in it's place. Only drawback for me is they don't have a fly, you have to go over the top with em. Even so, I'm never switching back.

    I haven't tried the A&F ones, but in my opinion there's no reason to... they seem exactly the same except $10 more a pair.
