Comfortable & attractive, but too much stretch + a design flaw
The description promising these trousers are suitable for work despite being a typically more casual material is spot on. The trousers are very comfortable and the fabric drapes really well. They don't look like casual wear at all.
That being said, I have two main problems with these trousers.
First, the loops of the hook-and-loop closure came off the trousers the first time I wore them. I assumed it was just poor stitching, so I sewed them back on very securely. But two weeks later they started coming off again. I think the edges of the metal hooks are actually cutting the threads holding the loops on, so this is a design flaw. I'm glad there's a backup button, but it's a shame.
Second, these run quite big in size. They are slightly large even off the rack, but I had anticipated that from an American brand. So I erred low when ordering, and they fit me very well for about the first two hours. After that, they stretched to the point where I needed a belt to keep them from falling off me. Months later, it's the same pattern every time they come out of the wash. I expected some stretch, but not this much.
I bought these on sale and I'm glad, as given these issues I'd have felt cheated had I paid full price. Still, I would consider buying them again -- at a reduced price, and at least a size down. The fabric really does feel nice.
