These are a nice pair of pants made by Eddie Bauer. The problem is that they are an extremely relaxed fit which for a guy with skinny legs just doesn't work. I would only save $4 if I returned them so I' m giving them to the Thrift Store.

I bought five of these in different colors, one for each day of the work week. If you've ever been to an outlet mall, you'll recognize these from two or three of the usual retailers. Easy care cotton, four turned out to be relaxed fit and one "classic" fit. All were 1.5" or 2" long in the inseam (I ordered 32", all were longer than 33"), so I had to have them shortened. But still a bargain after paying a few dollars each for shortening. Waist sizes were accurate.
They are extremely deep. Come to think of it; they are the deepest pants pockets of all that I own. No problem doing any of these things. I promise this is not a factor in your fathers decision to purchase these pants.

I am not sure if all of these pants are the same or if they might be from different manufactures in the different sizes and color (I know mine are different between pleated and plain front). I would say that the pockets on mine are of "average" depth, though, about the same as an average pair of jeans or chinos but I also carry a "man purse" to carry anything that I don't want spilling out of my pockets.

Thank you for the prompt and courteous responses. They are helpful and very much appreciated; with the exception of one.
On a side note to Bette: You would benefit from the old adage, "If you can't say something nice...." Please spew your discourteous, rude and obtuse comments to those who love you, perhaps they do not mind, or are numb to, your crass language, disrespect and utter lack of consideration. My Father is an 81-year old Retired United States Air Force Major who bravely and tirelessly served his country for 21 years, has raised seven children (not all of whom are his natural children) and is one of the most honorable, patriotic, generous and humble human beings I have ever had the pleasure to know. It is my privilege to try to meet his needs and do the 'leg work' for him. Additionally, simple observation would suffice to provide insight into the depth of a pocket.
Madam, if anyone needs to be "screened," it is you.

My son says they're nice and deep.

I consider them sufficient, I carry a flip phone, keys, pocket knife, small pencil sharpener, finger nail clippers, ear plugs, LED flashlight and a book of matches and that is just in the right pocket. Occasionally when sitting some coins may fall out (left pocket) but not often. I hope this helps.

Hello Trapezius, Actually these pants run a little tight in the waist and a little long in the length. So, to answer your question; you need to order a 36 In the waist and a 30 in the length. This is the safest measurements for you to order. I order these pants a lot and you will like the style and fit. Happy shopping.

Thanks The Tailor from Tennesse, the info about ordering a size bigger in the waist and length is very useful and appreciated. But, my question is not about waist or length, rather, about how it fits the legs. That's why I would really appreciate it if someone could measure the width of a pant leg at the bottom, and ideally, at the knee/upper thigh as well.

I don't have access to my pants right now but question if it would matter. These pants are labeled as seconds and part of that would appear to be irregular fit. I bought a pair of plan front and one pleated, both have the same "fake" label over the real makers brand and they are different brands so I would not expect to get the same brand pant or fit among different sizes and colors of the plain front (my guess) but for the $10 I paid and cheap shipping rate offered I would say it is worth the risk. My particular pair of pleated pants are perfect and good enough to wear to work while the plain front are barely acceptable and so better for working on my car or painting.

They are 34" waist, hemmed to about a 31" length, and are 19" around the bottom of the leg.

I am not quite sure which pants you're referring to, but the last ones I bought were Merrell brand, and they measure 9 1/2 inches at the bottom of the leg.

The stated sizing is actually pretty much dead on. My 35 X 29 fit perfect. I wish they had more in my size.

When the leg is flattened like the picture the width is 9 1/2 inches.

Sorry, but the trousers were a back to college purchase for my son and I don't have them to measure.

Normal fit, not too loose. Regular dress pant fit.

They are supposed to be a relaxed fit, and that was true of the first pair we got. Very comfortable, right length inseam. The second pair of the very same pants arrived with a much tighter waist and much longer legs. We decided to have them shortened and to avoid big lunches when wearing them. So you may or may not get a loose fit. I've washed the first pair and hung them to dry and they look new, so if you are in luck you get a sturdy and crisp pair of pants. If you are not in luck you get tighter, longer pants.
