Rated 4 out of 5 by steve04KU Honest Review
After doing a lot of research and trying on various dress pants at JCP, I decided that the Haggar Cool 18 was the best looking and most versatile dress pant to choose from. I ordered 5 pairs in 38x32. Upon receiving them I noticed a few minor things: First, they weren't all exactly the same pant. Some had older tags and a different-looking waist lining. To be expected I guess? Nit picky, but I also don't think that they fit differently due to this. I also found that the inseam was slightly different in all 5 pairs. All a little too long. I ended up getting them hemmed at a local tailor, but I would suggest that if you typically wear a 32 inseam, go for the 31's on here and you'll probably be fine. All in all, a very comfortable and lightweight pant with a forgiving waist. They look good with a sport coat or a polo at the golf course. So far, so good and I would recommend these to anyone looking for a great dress pant at a good value. Just beware that you might need them hemmed like I did.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hard2Fit BEWARE of size changes!!!!
My husband has a hard time finding comfortable pants. He has been wearing his Cool 18s in black and navy to work for years and I have always been able to purchase replacements when when needed.....until now. The seat/crotch area is now uncomfortable for him and now have to find another brand/style. No, it is not HIS size that changed, but the manufacturing cuts. He tried on one color in a local store, perfect fit...same as the ones at home; tried another color and it's 'crunch time'. The ones that fit have blue trim on the inside the waistband of the black and blue pairs, the ones that have the new cut have a white trim inside the waist band of the black and blue pairs. I even had him try a size larger to see if it helped. Yes, the waist was bigger, but still felt just as 'strangled'.
I don't know why there has been the change. I hope it is only a bad lot. If it is a design change in the pattern, then Haggar should consider a new style with these changes and restore the tried and true sizing for their hard-to-please loyal customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GMRedline Expandable waist FTW
These are the most comfortable pants I have ever worn. The expandable waist allows me to feel comfortable whether I have a dress shirt tucked in or if I'm wearing an tucked polo. The pants will always fit. The expandable waist also eliminates size gaps. A 36 might be too tight but a 38 might be too loose. Problem solved!
The Cool 18 breathable fabric works as advertised. They are light weight which allows free movement of my hips and legs for golf.
I don't expect them to last as long as an expensive pair of the competitors but who cares. I would rather buy a pair of these pants every two years at less cost of an expensive competitor over the same time period.

Rated 4 out of 5 by John1428 A bit long...
I wear a 34x34 in pretty much every pair of pants i own. These pants seem to be more like a 34x36. I'll have to pay more money to get them hemmed in order for these pants to fit correctly. I made the mistake of assuming they'd fit like previous pairs so i didn't try them on before taking the tags off. I also wouldn't want to pay another set of shipping charges to return these and get a new pair shipped to me. Other than that, I agree with other reviews which mention this pair of pants from a few years ago is much more comfortable than the way they are made now. They're a good pair of pants overall but not what they used to be!

Rated 1 out of 5 by silverdan31602 new style cut, doent fit!
I have been buying these for years but Haggar has changed the country of origin and the new cut is not a good fit. They are now cut too short in crotch and butt. I have returned these and will not be buying any more unless the change the fit back to the way they were for years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jev425 Great product, with great service.
I have worn these haggar pants for years now and decided to order them online because they were at a great price I could not pass up. When I received them one had a "snag" in the fabric and contacted haggar right away. They immediately sent me an email with an easy way to send that one back and sent me a replacement immediately and got it within a day. What is there to complain about? Great pants paired with great service!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jacksprat Good looking and great fitting!
I love these pants. They seem to run a little long, but I just put a cuff in them and they are fine. I wish there were more brands that offer this "hidden" expandable waistband.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kiawahdon Shorter rise?
Same great pants, BUT the rise appears about 1/2 inch shorter than last year's version.
