I bought two pair of the tall black straight leg pants a few years back and loved them! I just bought two more pair and these are terrible compared to the last two pair I purchased. The material is horrible now. I have a desk job and I have knee marks in them after an hour of sitting. I won't be purchasing these again. Not sure who make these for Penningtons but they sure have gone downhill! I compared them with the old ones and the material is not the same. You should have left well enough alone ! Disappointed!
