Have been buying these for years, 1st pair was tie-dyed years ago(wish you would bring those back). Material is noticeably thinner than it was years ago but still more comfortable than any other kitchen pants. They also shrink (shorten in length) after several washes. I get cheaper materials more profit but, for the same price? Please don't go cheap on us, we're out here busting our butts getting short changed on pay/benefits for years, help the service industry out and keep us in good material and we'll keep on producing great things. Still, best pants out there!
