Pants Pants Revelation! (Help me procure the perfect pants, please.)

I really like Old Navy Pixie Pants, but I find them too prone to fading and shrinkage. Are there any slightly higher end alternatives that are worth my money? Wayyyyy too pants-related details inside. [more inside]

Stretchy pants?

I’d like to ask for some really nice yoga/lounge pants/leggings for Christmas. I’m pretty medium sized, but I often run into the problem, even with stretchy stuff, that if pants fit my thighs then they’re loose/gappy in the waist. They must be machine wash ‘n’ dry. Cost, up to $100. Recommendations? [more inside]

What do I do with the trimmings from a suit?

loose-fitting pants

Does anyone still make nice but cheap loose-fitting casual pants for men anymore? It seems like everyone is on the super-slim trendy bandwagon, and I hate that. I'd like a fuller cut, more info inside. [more inside]

Does the look I'm thinking of even exist?

I am a 30-something woman, and I would like to 1) wear pants 2) to work 3) in the winter 4) with a heel no higher than 1 1/2 inches 5) and not look frumpy. Where can I find the items I need to pull this off? First, the pants. I'm assuming that I want something more fitted/skinny than loose/bootcut. But nothing skintight, no leggings-as-pants or their ponte equivalent, and it's winter, so no "ankle" or "cropped" lengths. This eliminates pretty much all the dressy pants I've seen this season. Then, the shoes. I don't even have the most basic idea of what I'm looking for. Most low heels and wedges seem to be designed with the assumption that you've completely given up. Any ideas?

Tribeca Tailor?

I have been tasked with finding a tailor in or very near to Tribeca in New York City. They ideally are open at 7:00am or open until 7:00pm. And this tailor can take in the waist of a pair of pants without making one of the rear pockets off center to the seam. Chinatown is fine as long as it's west of the Canal street 456/NQR station. Other Manhattan neighborhoods considered if the work is really spectacular and inexpensive. [more inside]

Looking for a miracle: very rugged lightweight hot-weather pants

Pants, I need loose jean-like pants with pockets that are both lightweight and super-durable for working on a construction job in humid hot Georgia. The cloth needs to breathe; it also needs to be strong enough to protect me when I'm crawling around under a house or carrying nasty nail-full old wood to the dumpster. Flexible. Is there such a thing? Or is there cloth that I can buy and make me such a pair of pants? In men's or women's sizes. Please do not suggest any wool as I am allergic to it.

Recommend hiking pants available in larger size

I'm a guy whose waist is in the 46" range and I've found that most hiking pants that people have suggested in other posts don't go up that large. Just wondering if anyone can recommend some pants that would work well for hiking that are available in larger sizes. I'm in Ontario, Canada, so I'd prefer something that was available in Canada.

Plus size curvy fit jeans with substance?

I've finally worn out my beloved Levis 580 bootcut jeans, only to find out that in the last few years they've started making them with that super-thin stretchy fabric that I hesitate to call "denim." I'd already abandoned most plus-size jeans for that reason. Is anyone still making a heavier jean with a little stretch? [more inside]

Alternative to Outlier's Women's Daily Riding Pants?

My first generation pair of Outlier's Women's Daily Riding Pants are on their last legs. They were pretty close to the perfect pant for me; stretchy, a decent material resistant to staining, good for biking/travel/camping/hiking with clean-enough lines that I could wear them out to dinner with a nice shirt. They've discontinued their women's line so now I'm back to the drawing board. Please help! [more inside]

Fuzzy pants be gone!

I have a pair of Calvin Klein suit pants that have a patch that's gone fuzzy on one hip/outer thigh. I think the velcro closure on my bag rubbed against it during a commute. It's not pilled, like a sweater, but fuzzy. Looking around, I have seen recommendations for how to deal with sweater pilling but not fuzzy pants. Are sweater de-pillers OK for this problem? Lint brush and sticky tape did nothing. Pants are a poly blend. Thanks in advance for any tips!

Why are my jean zippers always coming undone?

So whenever I wear jeans, the zipper is always falling down. It does not seem to matter what the jeans are - new, old, too tight, too loose, just right. I know you ostensibly place the tab down to lock it, but this does not help - it just slows it a bit. Hence it's probably something I am doing wrong, or an incorrect fit that I keep buying. What might it be?

help me pants - thunder thigh edition

Hey folks I'm a reasonably fit male, 5'10" with a 32-34" waist and enormous thighs. Finding good pants is always problematic - typically they get around my trunks and are completely loose around my waist. I've had the best luck with Lucky brand jeans, but there must be more pant options out there. I try to dress casual chic - any tips, tricks or brand recommendations would be appreciated.
