Author’s Note: I purchased these Jockey modal boxer briefs with my own money. I was not compensated in any other way for this blog post other than affiliate marketing. All opinions are my own.
Although I have 70-80 pairs of underwear – I lost count – I didn’t have any underwear from the “Big Three” legacy underwear brands in the United States: Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, and Jockey. Part of the reason is that I do not like cotton underwear, and the Big Three sells a ton of cotton men’s underwear. Another factor is that none of their offerings appealed to me.
Yet this changed in November 2022 when Jockey had a blowout sale for Black Friday/Cyber Monday. I looked at their offerings, and I was pleasantly surprised. Jockey offered many styles, colors, patterns, and, most importantly, a lot of non-cotton underwear. And since I could get five pairs of Jockey underwear for the price of one pair of Saxx boxer briefs, I splurged and clicked Order Now.
I previously wrote about the Jockey bikini briefs (really Tanga briefs) I purchased as part of my November order. Today, I want to review the Jockey modal boxer briefs I also got. (I also reviewed Jockey Microfiber Boxer Briefs as well.)
Wearing My Jockey Modal Boxer Briefs
Modal is one of my favorite underwear fabrics – the other being bamboo – so I included a pair of Jockey modal underwear as part of my order. I purchased a two-pack of Jockey modal boxer briefs, with one pair having blue stripes and the other being dark teal, as blue is my favorite color.
Modal underwear generally runs at least $15/pair, often going up to $30+. You may be lucky to buy in the $10-$15/pair range with sales. Yet, I loved the price of these Jockeys: the retail price is $12/pair (with a three-pack), but with sales, you can often get the price below $10/pair, if not lower.
But does the low price mean these Jockeys are cheaply made? No! First, the fabric blend is 94% modal/6% elastane. Readers know that a higher elastane/Spandex content is vital for comfort. Most entry-level modal underwear consists of a 95% modal/5% elastane blend, so Jockey is already a notch above that. (For reference, higher quality modal underwear has 8-10% elastane content.) And these boxer briefs are as soft as my other modal boxer briefs!
A lovely pair of boxer briefs
Because I enjoy wearing these Jockey boxer briefs, I bumped them up to the top of my underwear rotation, meaning I wear them a lot. They have held up very well through plenty of washes. The leg bands are still intact and keep the legs in place. Remember to tumble dry low or air dry modal and bamboo underwear, if possible, to reduce wear and tear. Modal and bamboo are a lot thinner than cotton and need some extra care. 🙂
I enjoy wearing these boxer briefs not just because of the fabric but also the style. My favorite color is blue so, of course, I enjoy wearing the two pairs I have, especially the one with stripes. Much like my Jockey tanga brief, I need to spice up my underwear collection, and I am collecting underwear with nifty patterns. Honestly, I think I look damn good in these boxer briefs! 🙂

Unlike other pairs of modal underwear I own, these Jockeys do not have a separated pouch, such as Saxx or Shinesty. The pouch is a standard, non-separated pouch, which is typical for the Big Three legacy brands and other brands like Calvin Klein. The pouch works for me, but if you are used to wearing a separated pouch – especially for sweat and chafing issues – these Jockeys won’t protect against that.
Overall, I have no complaints about these modal boxer briefs! In fact, these Jockeys have opened my eyes to Jockey as part of my underwear collection. And unlike other brands in the $30-40/pair range, it is pretty affordable to stock up on Jockey men’s underwear.
The Details of Jockey Modal Boxer Briefs
I want to break down all of the specifics of these Jockey modal boxer briefs for you:
- Length: Standard 6” boxer briefs. If you wear boxer briefs, you are probably wearing 5-6” boxer briefs.
- Price: $$. The retail price is $18/pair, which is ok for good quality modal underwear. You can get the retail price down to $12/pair with a three-pack. But often, you can find sales on Amazon or Jockey’s website to get the price cheaper. If you can score a pair for under $8/pair, buy it! Note that you usually have to buy a three-pack to get the best deal.
- Colors and Patterns: Much like my obsession with Jockey’s tanga briefs, I also bought these boxer briefs because of the patterns available. Lots of geometric shapes and stripes, plus the colors are lovely, especially since blue is my favorite color.
- Material and Fabric: Jockey makes its modal boxer briefs from a 94% modal/6% elastane blend. This blend is better than the standard 95% modal/5% elastane blend most entry-level brands offer for modal underwear. I love modal underwear, and these Jockeys do not disappoint.
- Penis Pouches: Standard, non-separated, no-frills pouch. It works!
- Fly: Can be either no-fly or with a standard vertical fly. The boxer briefs I have do not have a fly, but it looks like on Amazon, they have versions with a fly.
- Branded waistbands: Jockey’s logo appears on these boxer briefs, but the logo design is conservative and mellow. Depending on the specific pair, the logo may blend in with the color of the waistband, be a version of white or gray, or be non-existent. Either way, they are ideal if you show your underwear above your pants or shorts and don’t want to be a brand advertisement. I prefer waistbands with no logos or subdued logos.
- Multipacks: You can buy a three-pack of these Jockey modal boxer briefs on Amazon for the best pricing per pair.
- Design Country: United States
If you are looking for good modal underwear to stock up on or try out for the first time, I recommend these Jockey modal boxer briefs, which you can buy here from Amazon. They are comfortable, have performed well, and come in various patterns and colors. Plus, the price is fantastic at $10/pair or less when on sale.
