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 3 out of 5 by neilpro true to fit, but too heavy for golf, also they begin to smell when damp because of the polyester
the style is good, i must say however i much preferred the lighter version of cool18, i got my previous ones last year or the year before.
these are heavier and more suitable for work, they look fine on, and fit very well. They do however begin to smell when damp. The older cool 18s dont do that.

My husband has always loved these, but now they are cut too short in the crotch area. Need to find a different brand.
