These pants bleach VERY little, and after a year or more of service, there are slight shadows where 12% has fallen on them. While prices are so low, I advise stocking up on an investment that will pay dividends for at least several years.
Oh, and yes I’ve become a bit more rotund to those hecklers who will admonish me for the size. I actually bought 4 pair of 42/34’s and am about to pull the trigger on a few 38s for when my corpulence recedes.
NOTE: When I looked at the 38/34s they were twice as expensive. However, MOST sizes are marked down. HOWEVER, even at $30 I consider these pants a good value.
