great everyday pants
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Knit&trek from Philadelphia on Friday, October 16, 2015
I've been collecting a bunch of these over the years. The fabric is very durable. The fit is the best compromise between comfort and flattery I've been able to find. The crotch gusset really makes this item terrific. I bought them for serious gardening, and I can really move around squatting, climbing up slopes, etc. without the pants hiking up or binding. They are equally terrific for tai chi, or just lounging. They still look pretty decent for just about any casual occasion. The other great feature is the built in belt. Works great without adding any bulk. There is some variation in the fit and the fabric. I have a few pair, including the current wheat color, that are a bit softer. These look and feel the best. Others are a little bit stiffer, but not objectionably so. The seams can pucker a bit in the dryer, so I usually pull them out damp and stretch the seams out before hanging to finish. That way they don't need ironing. The deep purple color (sold out?) the color ran quite a bit, so watch the dark colors before you mix in with laundry. Other than that I'm almost living in them. They make me happy.
