Beth L., of Connecticut, couldn’t believe her eyes when she opened her mailbox. Inside, there was a hand-written envelope. “Hmm …” she wondered, “Was it a clever mailing by a charity or marketer trying to lure her to open it?”
Nope. It was a greeting card. A real, hand-written greeting card wishing her a speedy recovery from Paula S., a Jockey personal shopper.
“I mentioned to her that I was going through chemo, and I guess she cared,” says Beth. “That really stands out these days, such a simple thing, but it makes a big impression.”
Like the saying goes, “It’s the little things in life that matter most.” We’d love to hear, have you experienced a random act of kindness that really made your day?

On May 9th Jockey employees lined the sidewalks of the Jockey Factory Store standing on their heads. Crazy? Sure. But, the handstands served a very important purpose.
The 2012 “Turn a Life Around” campaign began May 1st with handstand flash mobs in Appleton, Madison, Milwaukee, La Crosse, Eau Claire and Kenosha. Flash mobs will continue to take place all month long.
To check out photos from our flash mob at the Jockey Factory Store, see the photo album below.
We’d love to hear, have you or any one that you know experienced the joy of adopting a child?

As a guy, I can attest to this statement: Most men won’t buy new undies until the waistband detaches from the garment. Why you ask? Let’s just say it’s an unsolved mystery. Thankfully, some of us have a person that reminds us when it’s time to freshen up our top drawer.
For our newest customer, this person was his girlfriend. Prior to Bill’s visit to a Jockey outlet store, he had no idea he needed new underwear (luckily his girlfriend did) and hadn’t thought of Jockey as a brand for him. Now? It’s the only thing he’ll cover his backside with.
Over the last year and eight months I have become a big fan of Jockey brand underwear. I have always felt that the Jockey brand product was a “dads” or “older man” product. I’m 34 years old. Last year, I was out shopping with friends at an outlet mall and I got dragged into a Jockey store. My girlfriend told me that I needed new underwear (I hadn’t noticed). Since the prices looked good for a 3-pack, I bought a package of Classic Boxer-Briefs with the regular fly (the Pouch type was a little weird for me). Over the next few days as I wore them; I liked them. For the last 15 years, I have worn other brands of underwear. While I was in the store that day, I signed up for the Jockey Rewards Program. A couple of weeks ago, I earned a $10 Rewards Certificate.
I live in New England and it was starting to get cold. I hate wearing thermals. When I was in the store a few months prior, I noticed the Midway Pouch Boxer-Briefs. I thought I should give them a try instead of buying thermals. Bought a package, wore them and they are great on cold days. I went back about a month later and picked up 3 more packages of the Midway Pouch Boxer-Briefs because of a great price. My underwear drawer is now 100% Jockey. All of my older non-Jockey underwear is gone.

We’d love to hear, can you relate to Bill’s story? Do you have someone reminding you (or do you have someone to remind) it’s time for new undies? Leave it in a comment below.
See you on social,
Roy K., of Alaska, says he HAD to call Jockey to express his appreciation for the “amazing” customer service he received in January.
“Sorry it took so long, but we’re finally thawing out here and just now getting out of our homes again,” he joked.
It was snow that occasioned the Legendary Service he received from Jockey personal shopper Donna G. “I was telling her about the snow, we were just buried,” he recalls. “I wondered how, or if, we’d ever get out of our house. I told Donna to visit us and bring a shovel.”
Unfortunately, Donna couldn’t make it. BUT, she sent a shipment of coffee and hot chocolate to help Roy and his family make it through winter.
“The card she sent was just lovely,” he adds. “I don’t talk about my underwear with people, but now I talk about Jockey. How could I not?” We’ll be wishing you sunshine and warmth, Roy!
We’d love to hear from you: Have you ever received customer service that left a long lasting impression?
Ok. We’ll admit. The recyclable undies we were flaunting around on April 1 aren’t real. Total bummer, we know. In case you missed it, we created a fake collection of men’s and women’s disposable undies known as the Jockey Brief Brief. Crafted with a sophisticated, yet sleek design, our Brief Brief was manufactured from 100% recycled paper to offer the ultimate on-the-go convenience – you could toss them in the garbage when you were finished. We hope everyone enjoyed the video and laughed as much as we did.
Here are some outtakes from the making of our April Fool’s Day Jockey Brief Brief video.
