I shop at Eddie Bauer all the time. Perhaps it is just me but every pair of pants I buy from Eddie Bauer, do not fit in the waist. I'm 5'10", 170 pounds and I bought a large tall. They fit perfect in the legs and length but were swimming in the waist. I exchanged for a medium tall. They are perfect in the waist and too tight in the legs. Can't win. Great quality, warm and comfortable. Am I the only one with this problem with Eddie Bauer pants being too big in the waist? I highly recommend them, if you can get them to fit!
