These looked like wonderful hiking pants: durable material; a straight long and relaxed leg seemed perfect for me; the pant is gusseted for long steps up; I liked the colors. I pulled them out of the bag and was floored by how big they seemed for a 32" waist. Even the thigh width looked to be about the size of an elephant femur. A quick check of the tag indicated the familiar 32" waist that I have worn for over twenty years. I put them on to assuage my disbelief. I buttoned, let go, and the pants hit the floor with a soft rustle. Standing there, reflected in my full length mirror, I HAD to do a cha cha cha. Closeouts? Why not just call them seconds? Two of me could probably fit in there. Being curious, I put a tape measure from the center of the button to the center of the button hole. 41.5". Judging by my experience, I might conclude that one should order 9.5" down. No diet necessary. Quite flattering. Please, otherwise compensate me for this review.
