Dennisport Stretch Twill Pull-On Pants
Purchased 2 pair of Dennisport 10P. Disappointed that the gathered waist was not as tight as it should have been. Wore them yesterday and today and washed them this evening. Came out of the dryer a wrinkled mess. I purchased 2 pair of cotton/poly/spandex from either Appleseeds or Tog Shop (have Haymaker in the label) last year and they were amazing. Didn't have to touch them with an iron. The most recent purchase is a step down from prior purchases.

Product shrinks considerably
I bought a 6 petite size that usually fits okay but these pants came too long and too wide in the gathered waist. Planned to have it shortened and taken in at waist but washed it first in cold water with one other pair pants. Put in dryer at low heat but didn't quite dry on full time so switched to medium permanent press to finish drying elastic waist and fluff it up for 10 minutes. When I tried them on later, the length had shrunk one inch and the waist a little more than that. Don't need altering now, but pants need ironing. Also, color faded slightly---even though I put salt in the wash water to prevent that . Now they no longer perfectly match the jacket I bought to go with the pants. I will keep them because now they fit (unless they keep shrinking) and I need the Caribbean Blue to go with other items in my vacation wear--but I won't buy 98% cotton anymore. I expected more from today's cotton products.

Beautiful fitting pants
I purchased a pair of these twill pants in celery and they fit beautifully. The color is very pretty and they coordinate perfectly with a jacket I bought at the same time. The only concern I have with the pants is the length. I prefer my pants with an inch more of length, but these fit fine now. The style and color of the pants allow me to wear them for any occasion. All in all I think I made a good choice!

A nice pair of pants!
I order from Appleseeds because the clothes, including these pants, fit so well. I wear a size 8 in appleseeds sizes, but a size 10 from other stores. The pants are not skimpy and gently glide over the body. The length of 30" is perfect for me. They have a soft and velvety feel to the finish. The price is a little expensive for pants with no zipper or separate waistband, but I needed the color and knew they would fit.

Nice pants, but too pricey
I have 4 pairs of these pants, because I like the fabric, it's light and comfortable and it has just a little - just enough I should say - stretch. I wear a size 12 regular, and these fit me - so after I bought one pair, I bought 3 more, since when I find something that fits, I buy in multiples, given that companies change manufacturer and place of origin so often
This said I bought them when they were about 20 dollars less than the current price, which I think is an awful lot for this kind of pant. It's a decent every day kind of pant, it washes well, it dries in the drier with minimal shrinkage. So it's a nice pant. You probably won't be unhappy with them, if you're willing to pay the price.
One caveat: The elastic on one of the pairs that I ordered was looser than the others, and the lining in the pocket in that pair was some odd material that didn't seem to go well with the casual fabric of the pant. I returned these two, leaving me with the four I currently own. So be sure to try on these pants when you get them - in my experience, they did have some irregularities in quality.
