These are rather fashionable, but inexpensive slim fit jeans. Dickie's really surpassed my expectations.<br /><br />To make the most of these, you really need to know how how slim fit jeans fit. First, keep in mind that the thigh and waist area will be wide near the "bottom/butt" but tapered as they gone further down and then significantly tapered as you get closer to the knee. These are not skinny jeans, but a tapered or tailored slim fit. If you're insecure about how your thighs, bottom or legs look, don't buy them. In addition, because of the tapered style, you MAY decide that it's best to get them slightly longer in length than your other pants and jeans. Because they will grab at your thighs a bit, this will give the appearance of a reduced length.<br /><br />It also worth noting that Dickie's slim fit jeans are a little roomier than their pants by the same name. It's a slightly touchy subject, but if you get the wrong size your "male parts" will show, so keep that in mind. In fact, when seated, your "male parts" will leave an impression, even if you go up a size or two. These are not jeans for people who sit around with their legs spread like an eagle. lol<br /><br />With all that out of the way, here are my thoughts on quality and appearance. These will look as good or better than any other slim fit pants or jeans that you've bought from higher end brands. It's a little mind boggling since those other brands will start at $60 and increase in price quickly. They are just as tough as any other Dickie's product, so the stitching, color, feel to skin is the same. Comfortable and reliable. There's some subtle, but cool stitching near the pockets on the thigh stitching that give that premium look in a low-key way. You can tell they really wanted to appeal to people who are spending much more on jeans.<br /><br />After washing, I hang dry and I find they remain pliable and soft to touch, without fabric softener. While they are wet, you can pull out the major wrinkles and once dry, you can quickly (4 min or less) iron or steam them before wearing.<br /><br />I am 6'1" and weigh 190lbs. I have a relatively athletic build and bought a 36x34. I do wear them with ironed cuffs, because I would normally buy 36x32 or even 35x32. When I'm sitting, they stretch, but they do completely envelope my thighs and look a little tight. But again, they are super comfortable, even in this position.<br /><br />Last, these are Dickie's jeans, so they are not like a pair of khaki's. The material is closer to jean material, although it is softer and lighter. I enjoy wearing them chukka or brogue boots. Very smart looking in a casual work environment. If you're a foreman or office worker in a labor setting, you'll downright sharp.<br /><br />If you're comfortable estimating the best sizing, I'd say pull the trigger and order a pair. You could save yourself $30-50 depending on what brand you already wear.<br /><br />And yes - these look good enough that your teens and middle-schoolers will wear them with pride.
