Botany 500 Tri-Waist Corduroy Pants
Would rate Excellent but for snap button closure.
These pants have an excellent fit and have good material and workmanship. However I have one BIG complaint -- the snap button front closure is totally inadequate. It pops open!
I could wear these pants only after my wife sewed some additional hooks around that snap button.
Please Mr. Haband, replace this snap button with either a real button and buttonhole, or better yet, with a metal hook and eye like on your other pants!

Change the waist snap to button hole and button
I wholeheartedly agree with ranage2k. The snap pops open way too easily. Simple fix, change to a button/button hole closure. I bought three pairs of these in different colors and in every other respect they're great. BUT, PLEASE get rid of the waist snap.

Great fit for these pants. Unfortunately, the waist snap pops out whenever I sit or stand. If they didn't have this problem I would order many more pairs.

Great pants, waist band system is perfect for us big guys. I've been wearing the two I ordered for a year now, once a week each & they held up well and have plenty of life left in them yet.

I was looking for elastic waisted pants for my son who is 38 in waist 5'8" and big belly. He can't use a belt easily due to a handicap. These he put on easily and the size measuring his waist around from his back to just under the belly and pulled snug was a 38/Med inseam. The 38/med fits absolutely great, they are high quality corduroy and worth the money I paid. They are also a good soft medium-heavy weight. I got another couple of cheap pairs of Corduroys on her too another brand, size 38 that fit but are light weight. So if you are choosing one pair that are casual but dressy enough to wear anywhere, choose these! I mentioned his belly because in all the reviews no one mentions how the elastic waist pants work or fit a person with a belly. Hope this helps. I like this site and glad I found it as its very very hard to find pants/slacks with elastic waist except in sweats and those type pants.
