Larger Than Life and fit for Sailing
on December 13, 2010
I have bought Adidas sporting attire before with good luck. This Mens 3-Stripe pant had everything I wanted: Nice deep front pockets that could hold a few tennis balls, a fabric which allowed movement on the court, and sturdy workmanship. I had read a previous reviewer say that they ran large so I ordered one size smaller than usual. I am no-longer the skinny guy I was 20 years ago so at 5'8'' tall and 185 lbs., I can use i bit more breathing room anyway--or so I thought!
I have heard of clothes being "relaxed fit" or "generous with material' but there is more than enough fabric in the seat and thighs of those things to sail the entire Spanish Armada! Not only that, but they are 4" too long as well. If I cinch them up above my armpits like Martin Short, I can walk without stepping on them but 2 minutes of easy walking (let alone tennis) and I look like the guy who the "Pants Hangin' Down" song was complaining about. These are the Pantathalon of pants--5 guys could fit in them along with their hamburger stand.
