These pants were very lightweight and I am sure they will wrinkle easily. My big concern is they were significantly smaller than advertised-- a whole 2 inches less on the waist size I usually wear. I have several Hickey Freeman suits with high quality tailoring and fit. They fit well and always look great. These pants are nowhere near that category. I could find better high end pants at [@]

First, I must admit I have very high clothing standards, so my opinion may be more critical than those of an average shopper.
Fabric: It is a light weight tropical wool. Nice, but not great -- super 80 wool would be my guess.
Cut: a flattering trim cut that is not overly skinny.
Sizing: true-to-size. Since many shoppers are accustomed to vanity sizing, they deem anything TTS as being small. For a pair of 34 trousers, measurements are: waist 34.25", rise 14", thigh (just below the crotch) 28", leg opening 9".
Workmanship: decent. Pro: curtain waistband (notch on the top of the waistband in the back)Con: a number of loose thread ends.
At the STP discounted price, it is a pretty good deal. But I would never pay full retail for these trousers.
