I bought these to wear to work. I work in produce so pants are always getting spashed and generally beat up all day. After a couple months use these still look great out of the washer/dryer. I didn't realize the water resistant feature until I accidently splashed myself and the water just beaded up on the outside of the pants and literally just wiped off. I need to pick up a few mor pait to have.
I have been wearing Lee performance kakhis to work for over five years. I get about a year's wear per pair. This year's replacements are developing holes and rips after only five months. A comparison between a pair of the old and the new reveals the reason. The old fabric was a heavier twill and the new a thinner poplin. The Nonocare fabric might look good but, it lacks durability. Time for me to find a new brand.

I always wear LEE pants to work and to casual dinners and events...I love these pants but can never find MY size in retail stores. ESSENTIAL APPAREL was the ONLY place I could find my size and it was perfectly priced and arrived in a timely manner. I order them again and again.

PRO: [...]. Color does not fade if washed in light cycle. Ironing is easy, and pants hold creases well. Material is light and keeps cool in hot weather. Real sharp looking pants! CON: wish the waist had some elastic to allow stretching; the pant can be uncomfortable at times.
These pants are great! As a server, they took the beating that servers dish out and the stains just didn't exist! These pants are wash and go! Great comfort, style and durability. What else could you ask for?
