5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, bombproof, righteous pantalones, February 18, 2007
I work as a legal advisor in Afghanistan. This means that I have to be reasonably well-dressed, which means, at a minimum, blazer and khakis. Unfortunately, I am an innately messy person - a slob, really - and laundry service is not good, to say the least. It's a step up from pounding clothes on a rock. The little swine have trashed several pairs of trousers that I did nothing more than drink coffee, eat a tough steak, and smoke a cigar in - my good wool trousers looked like earthtone Picasso sketches. But not these Lees. I can get mud, coffee, blood, whatever on them, and then give them to a fellow who I know will wash and dry them on the highest heat imaginable. Nevertheless, they come out fine.

I will buy another couple pairs - but not soon, as I don't think these are going to wear out for a good long time. My unstinting support, wholehearted recommendation, and so forth. Buy these trousers. Sure they may cost a smidge more than, I duno Dockers. But nobody ever looked at khakis that they had spilled red wine, grease, and blood on, and, finding no evidence of a stain, said, "Damn - I spent too much for these."

I'm not really into men's pants, but your humorous review was great!! I was reading it to my husband and I said "this guy needs to be a writer!!". He's hilarious. But then, if you rather be in Afganistan, I'll just hope you continue to review products in the same style you did the one on the Lee pants;) for my enjoyment. We need more humor in this sad state this world is in. Thanks!!

"It's a step up from pounding clothes on a rock. The little swine"

Hard to believe we weren't welcomed as liberators for very long.
