Great pants but challenging to fit

Verified Buyer Reviewed by woodworker from NH on Monday, February 23, 2015
These are really nice pants. The material is very tightly woven, high thread count and soft, the workmanship seems excellent and they washed well without shrinkage. I wore them over long underwear as a wind blocking layer and I think they'll be much cooler in summer under chainsaw chaps than canvass work pants. They're also nice enough to wear for casual around town pants. FIT WARNING: These run VERY large. I usually wear a 12 for fitted and 14 for work pants. The 12 in these were completely oversize in every direction, the 10 requires a belt to stay up but the rise is ok and I kept them for wearing over heavy long underwear. The 8 is actually my size. The fit in the 8 is comfortable around the waist, medium rise and still generous in the upper thigh due to the gusset crotch. I'm built pretty straight but these might be a good choice if you have larger thighs than long as you size down. These were worth the fit challenge and I expect I'll be wearing them for a long time.
