I finished these pants today like I was hoping I would. In fact, I was able to wear them out to dinner. I'm really happy with these. One problem I had with the last pair was a little sagging under the seat. I was so excited when I saw the latest issue of Threads, as they had an article on how to fix this very problem. It seems I have a "tilted pelvis" or low seat because this alteration worked for me.
Here is a picture of the "fix."
And the result:
So, I'm pretty happy with these. They fit, they're comfortable, and they look pretty good. Not only that, they are a poly suiting, so I can throw them into the wash. Can't beat that.
