Sometimes we make mistakes! After all we're only human. Our shipment of men's pants from our previous manufacturer were not produced according to our specs, not sure how but they used another brand's design. So we have a bunch of pants that were supposed to have a nice tapered leg but are a loose fit straight leg. The back pockets are shallow but still functional.If you or someone you know can sew, then you've hit the jackpot as it's a simple fix! Or you could always have them tailored into shorts! We promise, next year our men's TAPERED pants will be just that.
