THE PROPER NAVY CHINO:
Get a leg up on just about everyone. Loaded with thoughtful extras like an internal French bearer panel, Bengal stripe pocket detailing, and woven with a touch of elastane, our flat front non-iron chinos are a comfy addition to any wardrobe.

These pants were terrible. The slim cut is even slimmer than in years past. The hem has visible stitching and is less attractive for office apparel. The fabric weight feels like it is less than in previous versions. These were returned.
My opinion: QUIT making products thinner and using alternative fabric blends to bring down costs. Make a premium product that retains the quality from years ago and charge more for it based on the cost increases for producing the product. Your price points have stayed relatively the same for the last 6 years it seems. I appreciated your affordable product line in the past, but the quality is to cheap for me now. I am unable to find quality that is in between the low quality, low cost products like you are currently having manufactured and wool trousers that require more garment care from a cleaning and pressing service.
A few years ago I purchased 100% cotton non iron chinos (5-stars). They held up for 3 years with out color fade and also did not require ironing for the first 2 years.
These Ultimate Non-Iron Chinos pants are similar to the 95% cotton and 5% elastane pants made about 2 years ago (3 stars). Those 95/5 pants still had a clean hem with no stitching visible and the slim fit was a very professional and flattering cut. I could wear these to the office at least. However, the 95/5 pants lacked in quality, with color fading after just 2-3 months of washing, and the pants held creases from sitting through out the day.
Thank you for making good products that I have enjoyed in the past!
