LEGENDARY SERVICE … That’s Red, White and Blue

“He’ll be home for Christmas.” That’s what Diane F., of Nebraska, shared when she called Jockey personal shopper Sandy.

Diane’s son was coming home from Afghanistan and a lot of his clothes weren’t coming with him.  So, she called Jockey to buy him a new “under-wardrobe” of all his Jockey favorites.

After the order was placed, Sandy and the entire Consumer Care team sent Diane’s son a range of red, white and blue underwear along with a special card expressing appreciation for his military service.

“I thought it was just wonderful and amazing. It shows that you’re more than great underwear, you’re great people,” said Diane.

LEGENDARY SERVICE … That’s A Show Stopper

When Toni C. of California celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary, she received an unexpected gift that stole the show.

“Everybody kept asking, who sent the beautiful flowers? I kept telling them this nice lady Vivian that I talked to at Jockey when I ordered underwear. I mentioned my anniversary while on the phone and the next thing I know, a lovely floral arrangement appeared at my door. Now-a-days, companies have to stand for something, and Jockey sure seems to do that. Anyway, thank you so much!” said Toni.

The Life of a Jockey Underwear Architect

As kids, we all had career aspirations like doctors, professional athletes, police officers, teachers and so on. But, where was the kid screaming, “I want to be an underwear architect!” Perhaps it’s a special breed; after all, many of us aren’t comfortable discussing our undies or talking to people about theirs.

One of the most interesting things about working with underwear is the conversations. We’ll be honest, it’s not uncommon to talk H-flies, waistbands and wedgies over lunch. As result, that work/life filter gets tricky.

We sat down with Yildiz W., senior director of product development at Jockey for some real insight into that work/life filter of an underwear architect. Due to the nature of her job, Yildiz shares, “We’re always trying to innovate and offer our customers unmatched features and fit in underwear. Sometimes, that means picking the brains of friends and family members about what they like/dislike in a pair of underwear. After all, they’re no different than our customers.”

Want an example of that conversation? At a recent dinner party, Yildiz says she managed to turn the topic to underwear in attempt to research how her male friends used the fly on their underwear. There’s that work/life filter we mentioned. Anyway, Yildiz discovered four of her five friends actually used their fly. For us underwear folks, that’s almost like winning the lottery.

Aside from less than normal conversation habits, Yildiz shared when meeting new people and mentioning she works at Jockey, underwear waistbands start flying out. She jokingly admits, “I’m not sure whether to laugh or immediately change the topic.”

Well, now it’s uncomfortably obvious that working with underwear seriously impacts our social lives. But, we have a really good reason — we’re trying to make the best undies in the world, and sometimes that means asking friends about theirs.

So, it’s only appropriate we hear from you: What’s your favorite underwear style?

LEGENDARY SERVICE … that leaves people speechless

Nadine H., of Colorado, made a quick call to Jockey to get some hosiery that she needed expedited for her mother-in-law’s funeral. She was stunned when she found a floral arrangement at the funeral from her friends at Jockey.

“Everybody kept asking who my mother-in-law knew from Jockey, and when I explained customer service sent it, most people were just speechless, kind of, you know, “WOW,” explains Nadine. “You made quite an impact, not just for Jockey but humanity. I wonder how many people told other people who told other people.”
