(5/5) Superb pants! However, for slim to light-medium sized people only
on September 16, 2011
I ordered theses slacks since it was on the Lightning Deal and since I'm an Amazon Prime member, I received them quickly. While these pants are expensive, they are extremely nice worsted wool pants; what I mean is that the end product shows no loose threads, shows clean stitching, shows perfect symmetry, shows strong buttons sewed on, shows straight creases, and much, much more. I am pleasantly shocked to see such quality from a product that's not made in your typical "high-priced, brand name mfg" country (btw, it's made in Mexico). Brilliant, just brilliant!
Now although it is beautifully made and looks very nice to wear; it does have a caveat where it fits guys that have light-medium to slim waists. So if you are a bit on the chunky side, it will, I repeat, it will stick to your thighs in an awkward manner (and make your butt stick out not in a good way). Also, I should mention that you should order at least one size up since they do go on a bit tighter than other brands. Say that you're a W32 x L30, you should be ordering a W33 x L30 or even W34 x L30 instead (And if you ordered wrong, don't forget Amazon has great customer service so give them a call).
These pants are perfect for colder occasions, and as for summer season, your legs and bottom will remain a bit warmer than usual (almost like jeans in the summer, but way more comfortable).
Now for my pros and cons:
- Superb quality
- Very nice appearance
- Nice hidden key pocket up on the right (also has pocket separation on the right side within one pocket to help you organize smaller things you might throw in like coins/change so it won't scratch possibly your precious "smart phones")
- Tighter fitting, slimmer fit than usual (I don't believe it is true to size)
- Does make you warm up faster than normal
- Made in Mexico
- Says that it's 100% wool; however, there is a front lining (under the wool) that seems to be made of polyester.
- DRY CLEAN ONLY!
If you're not having trouble keeping the weight off your waist, by all means purchase these slacks. I promise you that you'll get good looks from a lot of people, they're just that nice.
Other than that, enjoy!
Thanks for reading this review. Cheers!
