Question Y-front recommendations...

Hey ya gents. Just a quick question. Looking for suggestions on where to secure some descent y-fronts.

I can always get my hands on some more Jockey ... since apparently that is the only brand I can find in the State that does an inverted Y front. However, I'm not really all that happy with the last batch I ordered. It was a multi-pack and none of those fit the same ... it's like they were put together with scraps and tape!

I prefer a lower rise as well since my torso is average to shortish.

Y-front recommendations...

hi NTBV
Good question! I have found Hanes pretty comfortable, but they aren't specifically Y-fronts, but have a fly front or A-front style.

Here in the UK, everyone tends to buy their undies from Marks & Spencer, they have some y-front styles worth a look.

as an example.

Happy shopping and let us know how you get on m8.

cheers, Mandrake

Thanks for the info ...

Thanks Mandrake i will do that indeed. Very much appreciate the info. I've never really ordered internationally so this will be a unique experience to say the least.

Marks & Spencer underwear is very good, and incredibly, they ship to the United States usually in under 5 days, and for just $5.

Talking Order placed ... now I wait.

Thanks Slew! I actually did place my order. Now just have to see what happens. So happy to find alternative to Jockey Y's. Hope to post new pics in them upon arrival!

And that $5 shipping!!! OMG! I thought it was a joke at first. Beats Amazon. Which is definitely the market place it used to be.

I haven't ordered anything in more than a year from them, so glad to see it's still $5. I couldn't believe that either. I had a do a return once and that was easy, too. I can't recall if it was a couple bucks, but you sent it to a facility in the US, and they forwarded it from there.

I'm still disappointed M&S dropped the Modul briefs from Autograph. I wanted to get a 2-pack in black but they discontinued them.

Thumbs up Discontinued.

Isn't that typical though Slew. Find some pants that fit perfect, feel perfect ... go to order again and they've been discontinued. Then you kick yourself for not ordering more the first time.

Hopefully, I shouldn't have to return them. Likely if I don't like them I'll offer them up on the board and find them a good home if they just don't work out

Yes, exactly. I usually get backups when I find a style I like, and currently have a couple others that were discontinued. The H&M white briefs were dropped and replaced with a different style with a seam down the fly and thinner fly area in general. They don't even sell briefs at the H&M stores anymore (online only) and I've been to 3 stores in the last month. I still have 2 blacks and 1 white in my backup supply from the originals.

Marks & Spencer also dropped the Autograph modul briefs, which were awesome. That modul material was great. M&S also dropped the blue stripe on their white briefs in the Cool and Fresh briefs, but I got backups on those too.
