Fruit of the Loom Complaint - Cheaply Made - T-Shirts / Underclothes

Review by barefoot on 2009-03-05
HILLSBOROUGH, NORTH CAROLINA -- Fruit of the Loom what has happened? You used to manufacture quality merchandise at affordable prices. Pocket t-shirts loose shape quickly, as do men underwear, as for the womens panties what a waste of money. immediately the elastic around the waste unravels and the panties lose any kind of shaping they should have looks like a twisted mess. And they get these little cotton balls that form after a few washes.

I find myself looking and trying other brands which I hate to do, been thinking maybe they should get rid of Fruit Guys commercials and put the money for better quality.

I quit buying Fruit of the Loom several years ago for the same reasons. I have been buying Hanes, and have had good luck, for the most part. When I had a quality issue with a Hanes product a couple of years ago, I simply emailed them with my complaint, and they responded not only with discount coupons, but also sent me replacement items. Overall, I am very pleased with Hanes.

well, since the op is in NC all you have to do is look around for your local textile mill. What? not there gee, and I don't suppose you just love Wal-Mart do you? Everything is outsourced to other countries these days. The brand name stays the same but that's about all. Just like furniture and most home furnishings everything is coming from overseas.

Perhaps the problem is with your washing and drying habits.
My "FOL" undergarments do just fine.
