The taupe wash is pretty sick, but the pants itself is kind of big. Unlike the golden ages when all of the k slims fitted like the Reynolds signature, the new k slims fit a lot different. Unlike most of my older k slims, these are pretty baggy. They aren't as tapered in the knee and thigh area as they once were..they fit more as if they were straight leg relaxed than a slim straight. Overall, I would give these pants a 3 star rating--yes they will do the job for my lab classes because they are super stretchy (97% cotton/3% spandex) and will not restrict my movements as much; however, I am going to have take off 2 stars because the gear expert told me in a live chat that the inseams on these bad boys were by 30 when you order a waist size by 30...but in reality the inseams are actually by 33. I wouldn't have gotten these had I known the true inseams, but for the price...I can't really complain too much. I mean they are after-all k slims and my k slims have lasted for 3+ years and they still look pretty good. I wouldn't really recommend these pants unless you are happy with the way the current k slims fit...I only say this about their denim because their twill k slims are super tight and pretty much perfect besides for the fact, that the waist gets super tight after repeated washes.
