For those of you who have worn these classic stretch pull-on cords from a well-known maker, they are not the same in any way.
First, they are enormous. I don't just mean a bit oversized, but grossly oversized. They are not one or possibly two sizes too large, but more like three or four. There is so much elastic in the waist that I look a bit like I am wearing adult diapers when I put them on.
Secondly, the overall shape has been redesigned. They are enormous from the waist through the upper thighs, then taper disproportionately.
Third, the fabric is not like this company has for many years used for this model of pants. It's nice looking and soft, but much thinner and less densely woven. It feels great but I fear that they will not last.
For pants to kick around the house or perhaps for light gardening, they are terrific.
