I like these sweatpants because they are made with a heavy material and the cinch straps at the bottom of the legs are a nice feature. However, they have a very slender cut. For example, I bought a pair of lounge pants at the same time (size XL, which is my normal size) and they were fairly roomy, although not as roomy as they were in years past. On the other hand, these sweatpants were quite snug in the legs, hips and seat of the pants. So, I've ordered a XXL to compare and will keep the one that is a better overall fit. These definitely run slim, but the length was fine. Unfortunately, I feel that Ralph Lauren has slimmed up a lot of their clothing, and it's a change for the worse in my humble opinion. Time to get back to your roots.
