Pants arrived promptly. I was very pleased with the appearance of the pants. It is made of high quality wool. It is of tropical light weight. There is approximately 1 1/2 - 2 inches of extra material at the seam in the event you need to let out. The pants fit true to form. I am a size 33 but the pants only come in even sizes but it still fits comfortably with a belt. If I was to be hypercritical, I am slim build, the pants have a little more room in the legs than I like. I like a slimmer styled pants which these are not. I highly recommend these pants for the high quality, styling and price.
Excellent construction, good feel to the fabric. I was concerned. I usually buy wool pants; this is a synthetic blend but it feels and drapes every bit as well as the Super 120 pair of wool pants I bought at the same time. It has a unique, for me, closure system at the front that feels very secure, a total of three buttons (one inside,one on the front that is covered by a piece that buttons on further along the waist band) rather than the usual two buttons and a metal hook. The pockets, piping and lining is all well done.
The rise is average and I wish it had a higher rise, I am 6'5". I also wish O'stock described the rise in the product description and or better yet offered this in different rises (i.e. a higher waist for us tall folks).
The fabric hangs well and feels very nice to the touch. I especially like the front closure system, a button on the inside left side to hold it closed and a two button system with the flap for the far button sitting over the flap for the first button, concealing it. It feels much more secure than the old metal slider system on just about every other pair of pants I own.
The material is a little thin but not overly so and that aids in making it feel nice and soft. I also bought a super 150 poly/viscose blend and the two feel almost identical in touch.
My only slight beef - I wish it had a higher rise. I have a long torso and the waist is about an inch or two shorter (lower) than I would like. By no means are they hipsters but I prefer my pants to ride a bit higher. I would buy again in a flash, however.
I am a middle aged person in my early 60's and I am not interested in trying to look half my age.
I do like to find pieces that are cut to flatter who i am now and not who I was 40 years ago.
Designers need to take note that there are many baby boomers who are not ready for flannel P.J.s and orithopedic shoes.
Many designers and especially those with longevity are able to meet the challenges and needs of an aging population by providing clothing that is flattering and adds a little something -something when we put it on.
Fashion should indeed be a celebration of life and knowing that feeling good at any age is what a successful designer is able to accomplish and the true measure of success.
I appreciate designers for giving me choices that are affordable, flattering and celebrate life at any stage and at any age.
