Thought these were a little pricey when I originally ordered. However, after wearing and seeing the quality used in making these awesome pants, I have to say that they're my favorites....and well worth the cost!!! As an author and artist, I love being able to dress "up" my favorite and comfortable clothing so that it is ready for any outing. And your pants are some of the best. My husband loves the way they look on me too, so it's an added bonus!
