I bought these a few months ago as my main lounging pant. I purchased enough pairs to wear each once or twice a month.
After just a few washes on warm and drying on warm, they shrunk 2-3 inches in the length. If you're taller than 5 feet five, you will be wearing "highwaters". Perhaps washing on cold and line drying would eliminate this...but who wants to line dry sweats?
The elastic also twisted inside the waistband and it's not easily straightened. It needs to be sewn to keep it from flipping. It is nice and wide however, and doesn't flip once it's laying flat against my waist. The flipping occurs in the wash, apparently.
The worst part of these pants for me is the pilling between the thighs. If you have thighs that rub even slightly, expect BIG pilling. I have to use one of those fabric shavers a couple of times during the day to keep it to a minimum.
Overall, the fabric is soft and warm (68 degree indoor temp.) and the color selection is great. I love the drawstring, too. So I gave these a "fair" rating instead of "poor".
Wishing Hanes would purchase better cotton for these. A longer fiber cotton would help a lot to keep the fabric pill-free. A brand of cotton that starts with Sup comes to mind!

I bought 3 pair to begin with. I came back and ordered more. I am 5 ft 8 in tall and weigh 235 lbs. I ordered a 2x and they fit great. I look so slim in them I wear them everywhere. I had very little shrinkage

I love these sweatpants and their matching jacket! The fit is great! The quality is excellent for the price! They are soft, warm, and very comfortable. Friends and family want pairs of their own!

Comfortable but look awful after two months. Wish they would go back to the plain cotton sweats that I first had in the late 80s. Those were great sweats. These... sorry to say... are not. Pilling is terrible-and these are suppose to be an improvement. SMH ohh to have the old sweats back. When will they listen to consumers. I for one will not buy again and will look elsewhere.
