Rated 5 out of 5 by Senior Not available in local stores. Good quality, easy ordering online
El Paso Penney's stores do not offer low-rise briefs in 100% cotton. I ordered them online and received a shipment from the Fulfillment Center, Lenexa, KS. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thatniceguy Best Tighty Whities Ever
These are just about the best briefs I've ever worn. If you're a young guy who is tall and skinny like me you know how disappointing the sizing of briefs can be. The white briefs by Hanes' and Fruit of the Loom have always fit baggy on me, even when I get a smaller size, and the colored briefs by Hanes have always given me wedgies. But these tighty whities fit perfect and have never given me wedgies. They fit snugly but don't have that pinching feeling. I lived in a college res hall for a while, we all saw each other in our underwear, and the other guys liked them, one guy tried them and ended up throwing out all his boxers and bought nothing but these tighty whities.
They're great for working out and sleeping, and in my experience are the best for any male related problems.
They're white so yeah they might stain once in a while, but then me or my mom just use bleach. So if you know how to separate your white clothes and use bleach for the washing machine they're pretty much perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by old1 Poor waist band
Nice material. The size of the colored ones was more like a large. The two pair of white ones included in the package were a better fit as mediums. However the waist band unraveled on three pair after the first wash. It is not the same waist band material that is on the traditional white briefs. I would not buy these again.

I have been wearing the Stafford Cotton T-shirts and briefs for many years, and always return to J C Penney when I need to restock / replace / purchase some more.
I did have to replace the Classic style that I had been wearing for that duration, but have found the Low-Rise style to be very acceptable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ThatsJustNotRight Weird Cut
These are not true low rise. They seem more like a high cut (French / Brazil whatever cut) for men. The back panel is the same height and size (amount of material) as my recently purchased Stafford full briefs and the only difference between the two is that the front panel has the legs opening cut up about three inches higher so that it doesn’t have as much material covering the thighs/legs in the front but the waist band still goes up to within an inch of my belly button because of the back panel full size, and this also makes the leg openings too large now.
About 6 years ago before JC Penney took a wrong turn and totally lost their quality control the Stafford low rise briefs that I purchased back then had both the back panel and the front panel about three inches lower than the full size briefs that I had at that time. I still have a pair hanging in there that I can compare the differences. These are made in Pakistan vs. the old in Honduras.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chas better fit
have bought another brand that you stock, in the past. That brand doesn't control their size well. I also ended up with a loose fit on left leg. The Stafford brand fits very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by i8abigfish Not what they used to be
I've been buying JCPenneys Stafford Briefs since I was a teenager (I'm 58 now). I purchased competing products from name-brands over the years to see how they compared and always came back to Stafford. I'm not so sure I'll keep that going after this most recent purchase.
I've dropped 10 pounds, but after one wash & dry, the briefs shrunk more than they should have. I didn't but them on sale, nor look for a discount. I expected these to be the same as they have been all these years! I'm disappointed. They still fit and feel good, but something is different. Perhaps the manufacturer is playing games with material or using those sub-human-sized male models from Europe or Asia. regardless, something is different and I may be looking for at the competitors lines again. There certainly are plenty of them to try.
p.s No no no - don't think that after 45 years I've forgotten how to wash or dry them and it's ME that made some mistake. Think again!
