Nearly Perfect Khakis

Verified Buyer Reviewed by The Shrewsbury Kid from St. Louis, MO on Thursday, May 25, 2017
I've had several pair of these pants over about 20 years, but this is first one that fits! My fault, there: I kept sizing up to M and just now, having read the reviews, decided to size down and not freak out when I had to struggle a bit to get them over my hips. The sizing down has solved the pant-drop and slippery-belt problems that other reviewers have noted. In fact, the usefulness of those reviews is why I'm writing this one, most of which I copied from my review of the Rocket Dry pants.

Apart from the sizing, my only complaints about these pants, over the years, has had to do with the pockets and the pants essentially coming apart after repeated washings. However, I gave 5 stars because I'm really not sure what's a reasonable life expectancy for pants like this. Three years? Five years? I'm thinking that I might try line drying this pair, to see if it helps with the wear over time.

One other thing: although the sizing down has helped with the slippage problem, I really do wish that Gramicci would go back to the sturdier webbing on the belt—the current one really does slip pretty badly.

Overall: great pants at a fabulous price point... if you can get free STP shipping!
