Nice fit, nice material, Nice Pants, BUT...
on January 29, 2016
Good looking dark blue pants that fit more like dressy pants then work pants. Run a little long in the inseam, a little tight in the waist.
I measured 1 inch more then the inseam size.
Yes they might feel scratchy and stiff but I have not washed them yet. The pockets are particularly stiff. The stiffness and mild roughness of the material is not bad, as long as you are wearing your underwear...
I'm not a slim, skinny hipster guy but I don't look good in baggy pants. I like the slim fit. Could be worn dressed up with nice shoes.
Now the problem I have with these, which I have never experienced before, is that they STINK... I mean they smell like fish.
I tried them on and walking around the house this morning. I kept wondering "What the heck was stinking?" I even thought my dog had done something....or my daughter left something in the garbage...
I took the pants off and put my jeans back on, since I was only trying them on. I brought the pants to work with me so I could see about getting the hem altered. Forgot about the odor as I drove to work and all that.. Later, I turned around at my desk and smelled the fish again... I thought "what the heck stinks?" And I flashed on the pants sitting there.. I smelled them up close and sure enough... They Smell..
I went and showed them to my wife who works for us too, in her office,, and she told me that she has had this happen before with dark blue pants too.. Is that true?
I guess I don't have any other dark blue pants... This is a bummer as I really like the pants... She told me that she looked it up on the web before and people do have this issue with dark pants. Some say you can soak them in vinegar to remove the smell some say the smell lingers on anyhow...
We are gonna try the bathtub with some vinegar idea and see what happens...
** UPDATE 1 week later:
I left them outside on a patio chair for a few days.. It was 55-66 degrees, partly sunny. It rained lightly one night.
(I leave my jeans out in the summer overnight all the time.) After 3 days it appears that the smell is gone.. We are washing them on the cold cycle now and we'll let them dry and If it still smells, I'll report back. If not consider these OK and I may up the rating..
