A little long...
on March 17, 2016
Seems like a decent quality product. While the inseam does measure 33", and not the 32" that I ordered, they look much longer. I believe it's because the crotch sits so low, it makes the pants appear to be at least 4-5" too long. I do realize that they are described as "relaxed fit", but they are maybe too relaxed for me. I'm not a skinny jean guy (nor do I wear any sort of low rise pants), but I don't like it when the legs are so baggy that they make a "swishing" sound when I walk. I'm going to give them a good hot wash and dry and see if that helps. If not, I know how to operate a sewing machine and will just hem them. Overall, they should make a fine pair of work pants.
So they did shrink some in the wash, but not much. I went ahead and ordered the next size down in the waist to see if I could get a better fit. I'm a bit puzzled. The 38x32 pair are so big in the waist, even after a hot wash and dry, that I'm constantly pulling them up at work. Of course a 20v DeWalt hanging off my belt doesn't help. Still, the legs are plenty roomy and a bit on the baggy side. The 36x32 almost fit like skinny jeans. They are extremely tight in the thighs and seat. I'm not sure what the problem is. Maybe I'm between sizes. I'm leaning towards the 38's being miss marked and possibly being 40's. I just measured them both. The 38's measure 42 inches in circumference, and the the 36's measure 40 inches. I really wish we could just do away with all this "vanity" sizing nonsense and manufacturers would just list the actual measurement. I hope these measurements help somebody get a proper fit.
