Rated 3 out of 5Â by Manon I love 'em, but they're too short after washing
(1) First, let me state emphatically that the so-called "camel" is NOT A CAMEL color, which is a mustardy yellow. (The corded velour stretch pants are a true camel, not these.) These are an elegant medium TAUPE, much more versatile, and I hope VCS keeps this gorgeous color!
(2) Although I ordered several colors, I kept only the "camel" taupe because the fabric shrank over 2 inches in length on the Regular when washed, making them much too short. Also, the size measured significantly larger in the hips, and even a bit in the waist, in the black and navy colors than in the "camel". That's a case for quality control.
(3) A suggestion: maybe VCS could have the pants cut 3 inches longer and describe them as "30 inches after washing." Then this fabric can be kept. The 2% spandex is a nice feature -- any more makes cords too "drapey" -- if you like that, then get the corded velours. (Note: If you plan to lengthen there's only about one inch, which is inadequate; you need to use a tape; and it's tricky due to the slight spandex stretch.) I would recommend these to a friend with the above caveats. But for those, I would have given them 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Bubba K Cold weather slacks
We went to Italy in October, 2015. I bought these slacks in black. They were perfect. Very comfy on a chilly day.
Next week we go to San Francisco and I decided to get another color. My son says it can be chilly in the wine country.

My old cords were wearing out. I needed new ones.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Upstate Quilter A quality product
Made with heavy-weight corduroy, generously cut and well made. The only negative: they shrank in spite of my washing them in cold water and drying on very low heat. I can still wear them, but now they are tighter than I would like. They are still the best corduroy pants around though. Maybe adding a bit of synthetic material would reduce the shrinkage.

I love these pants but bought them a size larger than I ordinarily take because most pants are too short. I love that these pants are made out of quality corduroy and will last a long time and are well constructed. I cannot emphasize enough that the products that I buy from this site are well made and long lasting. You really get what you pay for from the vermont country store. That is why I buy from them often.

I used to wear Cabin Creek but they have closed and I have been searching everywhere for these pants. I am so excited. The quality is great. Love the stretch.
