I am a Nautica fan. I seek out the brand for shirts, slacks, shorts and belts and it's taken over my closet from former off-the-rack favorites Hilfiger and Lauren. But not for these briefs. I bought them because it seems Nautica is the only company to still make single waist sizes (not just Large for 36-38 or XL for 40-42. I wanted a straight 40. These seemed perfect. And they were for the first two wearings. After that, the elastic in the legs gave way. It got worse with subsequent wearings and, finally, after about six times, I had to toss them out. I've had cheap Jockeys that lasted longer. Nautica, you let me down.
These migtht be discontinued, by they are better than the new style
I got these for my husband several years ago. He loves the fit. They have a logo in the center of the front. Then a couple years ago, I ordered more, but the new ones looked different. The logo is to the side. They don't fit as well. They seem to be a thinner fabric, and the waist band rolls up when you wear it.It's time to order more for Christmas this year, but now I see the two different styles both listed. There are not separate descriptions however. And the style that we like best costs more. I'm wondering if they were discontinued or not. If you check the Nautica site, only the 'new' style is there to order. Either way, I recommend you stock up on this model while you can!
