The fabric, crease, and deep color (I have the Navy and Black) have held up well through months of repeated washing, including drying on relatively high heat. Even the Dockers' logo is more muted and dignified than on other models.
The one minor criticism I have (and for which I downgraded my rating by one star) is that the waistband on the Never-Iron Essential is much less forgiving than other Dockers models I have owned. This makes me think that it does not have the Dockers "individual fit" feature that I have loved that enabled me to continue to wear the same size even after gaining a few pounds over the years and at holidays. Now, you may need to consider going up a size (or lose the weight) in order to have a comfortable fit. I don't know why Dockers dropped that feature as it is still it on their Signature model, but that model is not as trim looking.
When ordering this or any Dockers men's pants, make sure you select ALL the features you want as there are many variances and it's easy to miss one the code words and end-up with the wrong product - Never-Iron Essential (vs Signature or modern), Classic, Pleated (vs Flat). Fortunately, Amazon return was effortless when that occurred to me.
I have been buying Dockers for over twenty years. What I meant to say, is this is the second time I am disappointed. The first time I didn't say anything. Your quality isn't the same as before. The two pair I bought a couple years ago, I had to iron every time I washed them. I didn't say anything. They were suppose to be wrinkle free.
However, with the darker colors I've noticed that they began to fade after only the first washing. now, after about 4 months it looks like the navy color need to be replaced as it has faded quite badly around the belt loops--and it looks shabby. I've bought much cheaper clothing that has been able to retain its color. Further, I always wash these inside-out (and not very frequently, maybe 2x a month) to prevent too much agitation of the outward facing surfaces.
I know cotton pants don't last forever but shouldn't they last a year?
I've been buying and wearing Dockers for quite a few years now. The one thing I've noticed about Dockers pants that I've experienced with at least four pairs so far, is that they have a tendency to fray at certain places over time. Those places are at the pocket, and the hem. Places where the fabric is tightly folded.
This usually happens maybe a year into wear. Maybe nothing lasts forever, but Dockers are the one pant that I have this experience with, and I've had it with all my Dockers. And the hem is always the first place I see it.
UPDATE: After two washings, these pants have shrunk a full inch in length, turning them into unsightly "high water" pants. They're either going back or to the Goodwill.
