These pants wear very well and launder without shrinking or bleeding. I usually buy in bulk. Last purchase consisted of five pair of Kaki and four pair of Nautical Blue. I rotate my pants with each wearing so they receive very close to equal wear and usually get about two years out of a group purchase. I wear these pants every day with a very rugged inside/outside work environment. I'm very pleased with the fit and the ability of these pants to take a beating and still look great. I'll be purchasing another group of pants shortly (my fifth group purchase), probably at least 8 pairs which will last me another two years. If you are tired of ill fitting pants that don't hold up, buy these, you won't be sorry.
