Pretty Good Alternative to Blue Jeans
I bought three pair. They wrinkle after washing, and if that bothers you, you'll probably have to iron them. I like the slightly rumpled look. The material is light weight. Watch out for the length. I ordered three pairs in the 34 inch length. The inseams varied from 32 inches to 34 inches in length, so you'll probably need some tailoring or you can simply return the ones that don't fit. Fit at waist was consistent. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied.
Nice Alternative to Blue Jeans
The Langtry 5-Pocket Twills are a nice fitting pair of pants. Fairly true to size with the exception they may be slightly (and I mean slightly) snug in the waist when compared to other TA pants. . They feel lightweight when wearing but are not lightweight pants. I'm satisfied. I have two pair. Good alternative to blue jeans.
Not What Is Shown
I am a fairly regular customer of TA. I ordered my first pair of Langtry pants in Nov '10 in Gray and they came in green, as in park ranger green. I decided to keep them anyway. The second pair I ordered in Petrol in Sept 11 and they were backordered twice, but came today. They are not the Petrol blue shown on-line and in the catalog; they are a medium dark grey. Also, the pants are described as ""extremely soft."" They are very crisp and certainly not soft even after washing. Sorry, TA, but I can't recommend these pants for the qualities you describe.

These pants look and feel great. The 34"" inseam is a little long, and the 32"" inseam is just right. I'm a woman who has trouble getting women's pants to fit me right which is why I love guys' pants - I can get the waist and inseam I need. The 32"" waist runs just slightly small, but the pants do relax after wearing. I also bought two pairs in the 33"" waist, and they fit fine. I love 'em.
