Thanks for a really clear review, which I looked up after seeing the pattern featured in Sew Today magazine (UK). It sounds as though this one would help in my quest for the perfect basic trousers for now. I agree a slightly lowered waistline might be more current, and it's useful to know that would be an easy change to make.

Great looking pair of pants! It looks like you got an excellent fit, too.

Nice looking pants! I like the contoured waistband on this style.
