Not as good as they used to be, but still better than average.

I've been wearing 2xist briefs for several years now, and the cut is one of the best for my physique. No, I'm not a gym rat in great shape, I'm just an average middle aged Joe, not at all their target audience. For whatever reason, these briefs are really comfortable; they do have a tendency to be somewhat tight in the front, but they stretch in the right places after being worn for a while. Trying to be not gross, they are cut so they don't crunch my man parts in a painful downward direction even though they are tight. I really have no idea how they do it, but it prevents several uncomfortable problems I have with all sorts of other brands of briefs. I won't go into the details because it would be horrible TMI, but I'm sure if you are a guy, you've had it all. I've actually been hanging these briefs, especially the newest ones, on clothes hangers over the shower rod to dry so they don't shrink. That brings me to the downside. The new ones have less and less "make" to them than the old ones, and the cotton is getting thinner and thinner. I think this is a trend I'm noticing in clothes in general. The cost of cotton has apparently gone up so the manufacturers are using thinner and thinner cloth. As a consequence of this trend, I have several pairs of these briefs that are comfortable to wear, but they are developing many holes right under the waistband. I wear them doing chores around the house, but I don't go far away from home...I have all that " wear decent underwear in case you end up having to go to the hospital and they have to cut your clothes off" running around in my head. These briefs, while still functional, are really embarrassingly sad looking. Sadly, the manufacturer keeps revising the cuts and one day I suspect they will all be too low cut for me to wear, and I'll have to find another brand, but so far, so good. Some of the very oldest of these fit the best.
