    I was just wondering if anyone has bought pants from these folks before.

    I received one of their catalogs in the mail today, and noticed that a number of pants (work pants, jeans, khakis) are built to provide a little more room in the crotch by adding extra material there in the form of a gusset, or as they call it, the "Freedom of Movement" (F.O.M.) crotch gusset" to eliminate binding. Their print ad is a little more direct than the web site; one page has the headline "Your jeans solve the cheap hotel syndrome (no ballroom)!"

    They also have extra long t-shirts (among them ones labeled "Mine's 3" longer!") for people who need to bend over when they work and want to "just say no" to crack.

    Yep, but not for the same reasons that your exploring.

    The clothing is very high quality and tough as nails. I dont need the "extra ball room" but the ability to stretch and move AKA FOM is good. I use them to work in and for that use they are very effective.

    I bet they would work for you too

    The descriptions sounded like they focused on quality materials, and they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so I was considering taking a chance on them. Thanks for sharing your experience with them.

    Lampwick, they should put you on the payroll for PR. I just ordered a catalogue.

    They should put Jrad on the payroll; he's the one who actually had experience with them. I just received the catalog, and wanted to see if anyone else here had experience with them.

    The crotch gusset for more room did sound like a good idea.

    I've got a pair of the gusseted jeans - they're genius. I found them at a resale shop - I had no idea they made crack-prevention shirts.

    This is a great outfit. I buy all my shirts, shorts, and shoes for yardwork and home projects from them. Even got some nice safety glasses with bifocals so I can see what the hell I'm doing.

    Great service from them as well.

    I'm not sure I see your point, Uncut1234. These are not custom made pants, and no one has claimed enormous oversized packages. These are just a little different design of pants that may accomodate the shape of the male anatomy a little better.

    Do you need to post pictures here in order to be interested in pants that fit? I missed that requirement somewhere.

    I've seen where they sometimes ship those longer tailed shirts in spackle containers. To prevent plumbers butt is how their ad used to begin.

    +1 for Duluth Trading Company. Room in the crotch for comfort and their Firehose material pants are great for motorbike riding.

    yeah but basic shipping is 11.50. I was about to buy a pair of shorts, i came to terms about paying the 44.50 for a pair of shorts and saw the shipping price.

    I saw this original post awhile back and got a cataolgue. I've made several purchases from them and everything has been top-notch. I have not purchased their gusset jeans but did get a pair from a company named Diamond Gut Gusset; they are very well made and comfortatble. I do, however, like my jeans nice and snug so "roomy" jeans is not my norm.

    I thought about ordering some of the boxer briefs but they're a little high for my budget.

    Yes, I know...you get what you pay for.

    Wow, I LIVE in Duluth and have never heard of these guys. I'm also looking for good work clothing.

    And you learn to appreciate a gusseted crotch when you've worn out and torn apart every pair of jeans you own.

    They've got a sense of humor.
    Here's a vid on their super comfy Buck Naked Underwear.
