Really nice pants but the new sizing is ridiculous

I have owned or tried on the Annex pant in almost every year since 2007 and they always had a great fit. Long, yet baggy and fitting perfectly around the hips and waist. This is why I (6'9'', waist 36'') was able to wear them in XXL. However, I must say I am really disappointed of the 2012 model. Although Special Blend claims in the enclosed sizing chart that XXL would have a 35'' inseam and a 38''-40'' waist, in REALITY they have a 33'' inseam (supposedly this is the length for size L) and a 44'' waist. Basically, the pant is now a huge square and I will have to return them. I really don't know if these false measurements only apply to size XXL or to all sizes. All I know is that this really sucks because these used to be some damn nice pants. I REALLY hope that Special Blend considers their policy and returns to the measurements how they used to be for the last couple of years...

Responded on

It looks like they adjusted the "sizing block" for 2012 - says so on the garment tags. I just got a pair in M and they are a tad short for my liking. I have another pair by SB in M that fit perfectly, and yet another pair in L that are huge and fit my 6'7" brother better. I'm 6'1", 185. Re-ordeing a L to compare.

Sweet pants though!
