I was excited to get these pants and match em up with the Andrew Trouble jacket, unfortunately, once the boots were on the pants became highwaters! From the knee down they tapper narrow and become wide only by unzipping the cuffs. However, you have to cut out the web between the zippers in order to get them to fit over the boots and highbacks. I'm only giving them three starts because they do stay dry and the appearance of blue jeans is accurate. the tapered bellbottoms from the 70's felt just like that .Bummed they're not baggy and dragging the ground!
