Hanes Men's TAGLESS&reg; 2XL Briefs with ComfortSoft&reg; Waistband 5-Pack
Why did they add the iron-on label in the back ?
Been wearing these for years. Very comfortable great fit and no irritating tag in the back. I'd love to give them an excellent rating except ... About a year ago some genius decided to add a washing and care label (legal or marketing guy I'm sure) that is applied with some kind of a thermal transfer. The problem is after a few wash and dry cycles (likely caused by the heat of the dryer) the individual letters on this label begin to lift and it feels like 60 grit sandpaper in the small of your back. They are impossible to wear without a T-shirt tucked in as separation.
Tried using a fabric shaver to remove the label but it destroys the fabric. I've simply started to throw them away. There is nothing worse than uncomfortable shorts, I'd rather have a rock in my shoe.
This was a fantastic product prior to this change. How can we get this resolved before I run out of underwear ?

The only underwear for me!
I was very upset when I couldn't find these in any store. Was so pleased to see them on the site. These are by far the most comfortable underwear around, especially if you are like me and dislike elastic. Super, super comfortable whether you are dressed up or going for a run. High marks all around!

I have used Hanes as long as I can remember, which is probably 50 years. The last two packages of briefs were the tagless ComfortSoft waistbands and none of them lasted 6 months. Today I put on my last new pair and the waistband unraveled on the first day. The guarantee isn't worth collecting after paying shipping. I never say never, but I will not buy anymore Hanes products. I guess the old saying that everything comes to an end is true, as Hanes quality has definitely come to an end, and so has my patronage. I will no longer recommend your products.
