Everything Else

The new Wild Cut saves me a lot of time in PE. These pants are the best yet! The contour waistband and wild cut fit great. The only problem with these pants is that I forgot to cut the waistband long enough to accomodate the fly shield that I always add to a Betzina-style fly. These are not pants for “fat days.” :-o

I used some of my menswear-style trouser hooks on these, which was a learning experience. You have to put these 4-part hooks on before you assemble the waistband. They are very nice and are holding up very well.
