Rated 1 out of 5 by Quarkxp White lining?!
LOVE the look of the fabric and the color choices. The fit is a bit "odd." I usually fit into a 32" waist but these needed to be a 34." Aside from that, what's up with the lining of the pant being white?! As other reviews have referenced, the fabric inside the pockets is white. When sitting down, the lining of the pockets can show. The entire inside lining of the pant near the waistband, etc. is all white, too. It's been a long time since I've seen dress pants with linings like this. A bit "dated" if you ask me, and certainly not what I expect of Brooks Brothers.
Brooks Brothers seems to be "going on the cheap" lately, and I'm not fond of that. I've been sending back more and more items than I am keeping them when ordering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JasonH2 Lacking quality and attention to detail
I purchased 3 pair of these pants in February of this year. After 7 months, the hem stitching of two of the pairs was coming undone. The stitching in the crotch of the 3rd pair was also coming undone. I took all 3 pair to my tailor who said he wasn't surprised as he sees lots of BB clothing come through his shop. Considering the price I paid that was disappointing to hear. He also mentioned that there was far too much material left in the hem; it was sloppy. I agree as there was a good 2-3 inches of material folded over. I am having the tailor redo the hem in all 3 pair. It's frustrating when I think about how little I wear these pants (1x/week). I have pants from "discount" mens stores that have held up for years under much heavier use. Come on you guys, get your act together.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MSB123 Good fit, poor everything else
I really like the fit of these pants; but the stiching and detail is poor. The pocket lining of both the navy and grey pants I received are white, which looks awful walking around. The stiching is comnig apart after 4 wears. The pant hem is already unraveled, in spite having it tailored at a local Brooks Brothers location. Too bad really, because I did like the fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Joe4 Overall Good, but those pockets!
I see a lot of the other comments are about the pockets. If you're considering these pants, you're probably saying to yourself, "What's the big deal if the pockets are white??? Who is going to see the pockets anyway???"
Well, the answer to that question is "Everyone is going to see your white pockets!" The pockets are so poorly designed that if you have ANYTHING in your pockets, the pants "pooch" to where the white is clearly visible. And not just a little bit.
And, yes, the pockets appear to be white in all colors.
I am pleased with everything else about these pants from fit to quality. If the pockets were fixed, they would be a winner. Overall, I still cannot recommend these as is. The pockets are that bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Edmontonian Disappointing Quality
I had high hopes for these pants. Unfortunately the quality was lacking and I cannot recommend them to other potential purchasers. The seams along the sides of both pairs started to come apart after one wearing, as have the leg hems. The front button on one pair was also literally hanging by a thread when it arrived. I ended up taking them to a tailor, which was an expense I'd hoped to avoid by buying from BB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jdh8z9 Excellent Pant
I recently purchased five pairs of these pants and the quality is superior, along with the fit and appearance. My only issue is the white pocket lining. I would like to see tone on tone but its not a deal breaker.
I would recommend doing some more seasonial colors and patterns.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SVHUGHES great pants, poor quality
Pants are great but I was dissappointed by the quality. Out of the box the pants had strings dangling from the seams. The pant materials and fit are great however the quality is suspect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Garadice Trimmer Dress Trousers
These trousers have a nice clean modern look to them. They have a lower rise and are trimmer in the leg and hips than the Madison fit.
