I ordered Barry Bricken pants and was sent an inferior brand that I had never heard of, Berle. I am surprised that STP is advertising one product and sending out cheap imitations. I now am very wary of STP and very disappointed in this business practice. Too bad, I used to like ordering from STP.

These corduroy pants were not made by Barry Bricken - they were labeled Berle, and they are probably the worst cords I have ever purchased - and I own a lot of corduroy pants (including Berle). It is bad enough to misrepresent a product, but then to send one of such poor overall quality, under the name of a quality brand, is totally dishonest. The workmanship on these pants looks like it was put together by children. The waist is larger and the length is shorter than stated. After looking at other reviews, and the variation in quality seen, it must be that different products are being shipped under the same name. To me that is dishonest and fraudulent. Buyer Beware!

I was a little disappointed when I got this package. It was immediately clear that these were "light" corduroys. I've never bought Barry Bricken pants before and I was hoping for a really quality cordoroy, but I probably could have bought pants of this quality at a local discount store. Besides the light material, the pockets were noticeably small, which also contributed to the cheap feel of the pants. Since I didn't pay very much, i kept the pants, but I don't think they will be worn very much during these New England winters.

I have now purchased 4 pair of these pants. All but one pair have obvious imperfections. Pair 1--brown, with left pocket so small that my hand could not fit into it. Pair 2--black, with left pocket lining incompletely sewn, which my wife fixed. Pair 3--brown, with front zipper flap sown incorrectly so that the zipper shows almost always. Pair 4--seems ok. These might or might not be closeouts, however they are irregular for sure. Every pair is different, and you should count on returning a large fraction of them to get one good pair.
