Wonderful, roomy, no shrinking, elastic and drawstring (hidden) waist, in case you work your butt off while wearing these. The black didn't leech out all over anything in the wash, though I'd still be aware of the possibility for the first two washes. These are long enough for most and cute rolled up if you're vertically challenged. Best of all though: no sharing visions of your butt when you bend over, unlike all the dumb mid-rise workpants out there. These will cover your assets! Also, they are fine for just casual wearing, especially if your shirt covers the 'Chefwear' tag on the back, but why be ashamed of that?
