My son is very skinny, but is tall for his frame. He has a hard time fitting pants. It's either fit him to his waist and then he looks like he is wearing crop pants or fit him to length and his pants fall down. I was pleasantly surprised putting these on him this morning. It was the first time I did not have to make an adjustment. The high quality elastic in the waist will fit all sizes, but it is not the type that will give my son a wardrobe malfunction.
My son has this style of pants in grey. They have gotten a lot of wear this past winter. The material/fabric is a good quality. They have held up well with repeated washing and look brand new. Durable, comfortable and easy to coordinate. These seem to run a tad bit larger, but not by much. I wouldn't suggest sizing down.
These are the best pants, cargo pockets, true to size, kind of a fitted fit that looks stylish, these dont look like sweat pants but they are just as comfortable. Also they are incredibly durable for soft pants. Knees are reinforced! It is very hard to find reinforced knees on pants. I have been buying these for 4 years and will continue to buy them every year.
