The fabric is nice and sturdy with a good stretchy feel. The construction is superb, and nothing feels loose or flimsy. They are a bit heavy for our summertime heat (it's still in the high 90s!), but they'll be fine for the rest of the year.
The price is also good, especially since I got them for 25% off the regular price of $75.95.
My husband thought they looked just fine, so it's not like they really do sag, and if I just get to work, I quit noticing the sensation that I need to pull up my britches.
I wore them twice before washing them to see how they handled my work load. After dealing with hitching them up, I decided to wash and dry them to see if that improved things. To my disappointment, it didn't help. To the good however, the breeches came out of the dryer looking like brand new.
I know that SmartPak would take them back in an instant, but I really (want to) like them and am willing to live with having to hike them up. I am even considering buying another pair in a smaller size to see if that might help the sag. I doubt it will solve the issue though as I am much pretty a size 28/30 (I go up to the 30s because I like that wee bit of extra room).
If you're interested in trying out a pair, SmartPak has a 15% off coupon today only; use the promo code PARTY15 at checkout. USEF members get an additional 15% off.
I am very tempted ...
