by Sparky987 Not what they used to be!
I am sorry to say that even though my feelings about the JCPenny Blend Brief have been very well over the years, my feelings have now changed. I am a big boy and I come from a big family. I have been wearing the size 56 and have had an excellent experience with these. I have been a faithful user of these briefs. I have yet to understand why JCPenny decided to make such a change to this product.
They changed from the Town Craft name to the Stafford name which is supposed to be the higher name of the 2. Anyway, what is in a name? JCP has made a change in the sizing format from the numbered sized to the -XL format. The largest size is a 4x in these and it lists as a 54 - 56 in the number sizes. The fit however is not the same. I have several sizes in the old style and this new 4XL measures almost exactly as a size 48 in the old. Anyone who wears a pair larger, well, you are now out of luck!
The new Tag less band is not worth the money they spend to put it on. This new tag gets hard and cracks after just a few washings and then scratches your back side. Not pleasant at all! The Old tag was always silky smooth and did not bother at all; sometimes a good thing should not be changed!
Finally, the quality and fit of the new product. The new briefs have a lower rise then the old ones, now this may not be a big deal to some but it does matter, especially in larger sizes. Also, the band material seems to be the same as before but the stitching does not hold and begins to fail causing the band to pull away from the body of the brief. Overall, I am not satisfied with the new product and I am sorry to say that I have now changed my brand. Thanks JCP for a great product in the past, but your new product just don't make the cut!

I have purchased Stafford (JC Penney) briefs for many years. Their great quality and value is as good today as it has been for many years.

Just what I wanted. I bought this for my uncle and it will fit him well. I love that it has elastic and yet it adjusts to the body perfectly.
