I have been wearing the JC Penny Performance brand, Boxer/Boxer Briefs for many years without any issues. Now that they are not available, they are sorely missed and their replacement, Essentials is a second rate, cheaper version of the original. I must first start by saying my body type is athletic and not overweight.
The biggest issue is the seat. The back of the brief was always a one-piece fabric and contoured to fit perfectly. Now, J C Penny has elected to piece together multiple pieces of fabric. What that has done, is left the Brief with a seam running up the center on both sides of the rear of the Brief, which feels extremely uncomfortable compared to the No-Seamed Performance Brief. When you pull them on, all you feel is the tug of the two seams on your behind, compared to forgiving stretch of the one piece Performance. Also, the waist band is extremely course and not quite as forgiving as the Performance brand.
At the end of the day, JC Penny has figured out how to create a cheaper, less comfortable copy, of the original.

I've said this in other reviews and I'll say it again. When I buy clothes, I buy a lot at the same time so its important that it is a good fit. These do the trick, wear well, comfortable and supportive. Awesome set of briefs

I bought 12 pairs of these on clearance and am very happy with them. Some people don't like the extra seams in the rear but I like the fit they give. I do both a lot of walking and sitting during my workday and have no complaints.

My husband liked the shorts, but is complaining that the front opening is a bit too deep for quick access.

The briefs are of excellent quality and really wear well. I am a large man that needs big sizes. Big man briefs are often uncomfortable and wear out quickly. These do not. They are a great value, particularly if you get them on sale. Even without a sale, they are worth the price as the big man specialty stores often overcharge for basic items such as this..
