Nice snug fit, super soft inside. And not just for men - I'm female, 5'10", generally wear a size 16 and the large fits perfectly. They don't sag, like my last pair (Lowe Alpine). Great on their own with a long tunic top, great as a base layer. And they're made in the USA, I'm trying to buy as mu...

Got the Lg men's tights which fit with size 36 waist, runs a little long past the ankles and runs up slightly above waist but fits fine except... it's somewhat tight.
Now remember... "Base layer clothing is worn right next to your skin. The main purpose of the base layer is to wick moisture away from your body during periods of activity, keeping you dry and providing some additional warmth."
So base layer clothing is technically suppose to be "pulled up" relatively tight to keep one's core warm. It's also worn underneath other clothing to wick moisture from the skin.
Now, it fits fine, slight fluffy fleece on the inside and smooth side on the outside and it stretches as you move. No fly though but not that much of a deal. Just pull the front down when nature calls ;)
It came at a nice time when cold weather already arrived though relatively warm now but the temperature will drop down to 40s to 30s soon.
May decide to return after wearing indoors to see how it feels for a day or so. Not sure if I want a slightly looser fit though that'll mean that the XL size would also be longer in length as well as having a more looser fit.
Lastly, can't tell what the irregularity is but don't care as there doesn't appear to have any defects in the material or design so all's relative good!
Yes, these base layers are different than any I've ever seen! When I got them out of the box, I thought these are not what I was looking for & my husband said the same thing. They looked like sweat pants, very thick & looked baggy not tight fitting. I said, "well try them on any way!" He couldn't believe how wonderful they were. They are tight fitting, so warm & so comfortable! He looks forward to wearing them when the cold gets here! I highly recommend these to keep you warm & very comfortable.
Has not to date on the 3 pairs that we use! Brendan reports that these are the best long underwear ever.

I have not taken them out of the package, because they appear to be so thick that I'm sure they will be too warm. I had a different impression of how thick they were from the photos. But the price was so appealing that I can't even justify sending them back. Maybe I will pass them on to a family member who skis. Generally speaking, based upon past experience with clothes, cotton/poly blends are the worst at "pilling" as you call it. 100% polyester does not pill at all. These are nylon/poly, which I predict will not pill at all. They do not have a fly, so they are unisex garments. Other similar base-layers have flys.

Not so far and if they did I don't know anyone who would not wear pants over them.

I wear these all the time and have seen no pilling.

being a woman, I really cannot say, but these are very thick - which might be good if you are in snow country.

I just tried these on and I wear a 32 inseam. There was some bunching of material around the ankles, so they will work for someone with a 34 inseam. I'm very impressed with them as they keep my legs very warm.
