The sound of one hand clapping
I've shopped at Territory Ahead from time to time over the years because mostly I liked their stuff. Besides, I figured it helped them hire otherwise unemployed English majors to write their product descriptions. These sweatpants, however, are another matter. They are probably the most comfortable pants I have, but they're also the most frustrating. They are, in effect, held up with a shoelace--better than the old version, which didn't even go all the way around the waist (one of my short laces broke within two weeks)--but the useless elastic waistband means you will be tying and untying these pants whenever you put them on or take them off. And, with no fly, that's a problem. Also, get out your needle and thread, because you will be taking up the hems. Although they are 32"" inseam on large pants, which is what I wear, the cut is apparently so low that I had to take the hems up 2"". It's too bad, because these would otherwise be great pants for hanging around the house. On this product, they needed more help on design and less from the English majors.
After hours sweats are the most comfortable sweats I own (in 6 colors). I have fitted them all with spring loaded Draw string locks to avoid tieing and untieing drawstring. Number 2. Iam 5'-10"" , wear medium and still pay $15.00 on top of $69.00 to cut off 2"" each time. I love them enough to wear while flying or at home in front of tv.
I like these sweatpants. Roomy and comfortable. Here's the problem: The waistband breaks all too frequently and well before the life of the product warrants it. I had two snap in one week after a couple years. Not good! Tough to repair, too. I had intended to purchase two more, but changed my mind. Too much of a hassle.

These sweatpants have been a staple in my wardrobe for many years. Currently I have two pairs, so when one gets dirty I can have a clean pair while the other is washed. It is surprising to read that some people have problems with the waist band and length of the inseam. When I write that I have worn these sweat pants for many years I mean many years and I have never had a problem with either the waistband or inseam length. These sweatpants will continue to be a staple in my closet and I hope that others will try them as they are great.
What, still no fly?
These are comfortable and durable. I know because I have two old pairs, and have been waiting patiently for TA to realize the mistake of eliminating the zip fly. I won't be buying more until the zip fly reappears. Love the ones I've got, though.
