These pants have more stretch in them than other Alfred Dunner pants. I do, however, hang them to dry because I don't want to loose any of the length (I am 5'8" and need 30" and always measure my pants when I get them; if they're not 30" I return them immediately). They last forever and are so comfortable to wear.
I like the flat front and elastic back. I am almost 80 years old and these are so easy to put on and take off. I made sure I bought enough this time to last a few years. Would love it if they came in a lighter shade of navy also instead of just the dark indigo.
