The term "flatten it" suggests that maybe there is something in the front panel that is supportive or structured. There is not. These pants are flimsy. I had read that in previous reviews but was hopeful they would be OK. Mine arrived with a loose hem on one side and really no structure to them. They are thin, poorly crafted and flatten nothing. Scheels is nice about accepting returns but I have given up on finding dress pants here.
I love that these are wash and wear. They fit pretty well and are a very affordable pant with a decent weight to the fabric. they don't last forever though but that would be expected at this price point to me. The stitching tends to start to "pop" and fray in the behind. I had one pair do this after two months (the gal at Scheels told me to bring them back and they would be happy to exchange). Others have lasted much longer or even up to a year or more. All were the same size, fit the same, so not sure why the incosistency. I'll buy again regardless.
I love these pants for office wear and bought a pair in each color. They fit perfectly and satisfy my criteria (high waist, button closure, full length, straight leg) except maybe that the pockets aren't easy to use like with jeans. And they're comfortable, and made in Canada. For reference, I'm 5'7" 125 lbs and got a size 2.
Here's the thing...I'm not sure they will last. After one wearing, I started noticing loose threads hanging out from the hems, the button hole, etc. It feels like the pant is in danger of unraveling or something. I wonder how they'll survive a washing is what I'm saying...we will see.
