Closeouts. Riviera's Sting pants utilize two fine materials to create a refined look: the attractive slubbed texture and breathability of linen, and the soft hand, wrinkle resistance and incredible drape of TENCEL®.

For a summer party; received 3 days before not realizing they had to be tailor hemmed. The pro? We had a enough length to put in a sweet cuff! I can see how the lighter pair would be see through, but for me- the black trouser with silky dark sport boxers, they were great. Fit very well; my girlfriend loved the way the "rode" me!

This is my second pair of TENCEL/linen pants. The Tencel seems to help the linen hold its crease, but by no means is a cure for linen slouch after a couple hours in heat and humidity. The black on these is a dusty, soft black, not at all crisp, which, in a way, goes with the linen -- after 10 minutes. Riviera makes the best North American pants --tailoring and details right up there with the best Italian houses...at a fraction of their Lira-inflation pricing.

The combination of linen and tencel would have been perfect for comfort but 75% of the fabric content was missing. The pants were completely see through and unwearable. They may be compared to a see through chiffon overskirt layer or sheer sleeves on a woman's frou frou dress in transparency. Very dismayed. Returned two pair.

These pants are a disaster! The fabric is basically see-thru. The pocket fabric is totally visible from the exterior, and makes the wearer look like a freak. Underwear is clearly visible--including the pattern of one's boxers.
I cannot imagine a normal person wearing these pants.
