I wear these pants for work, both in the office and in the field. They fit great, are durable, and go well crossing over between field work and office work. I can pull off a client meeting and then hit the field without too much trouble. Outside they are warmer than a typical pant due to the tighter and heavier duck material. They seem to do better when going through underbrush and have not developed pulls from thorns. No problems with a wide leather belt going through the lopes- my wife says they look good with a plaid shirt and vest.As for shrinkage, the waist did shrink somewhat - maybe 1/2 inch. The length probably came up as well, but I didn't notice since I had ordered them a little long.The 34L fit me great even after the slight shrink. I am 185 and 6'2" tall.
"You can wear these pants almost anywhere, and be comfortable."
I'm 5'6" and weigh 148 pounds, so I bought the 32 waist, short (which has a 30" inseam). They're not too tight or baggy. They hold up well. I usually wear them 3 or 4 times before I throw them in the washer. Shrinkage is minimal.I work at a university where casual and business casual are the norm. These pants fit right in, and pair well with a variety of cotton and polyester fabrics. These pants are easily worth the money if you wear them enough. And Moosejaw is a great company to buy them from. They are helpful, professional, and fun. They follow through with what they say, and have a good rewards program.
