I agree on Mabitex, they are awesome. See this post: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=223524
Seriously, I do have a pair of cotton Mabitex (pretty much the same happened to me as the poster of that thread!) and they are alright, but my wool Mabitex pants is the real deal. Great pants for the price of Daffys and even SF B&S price, if you ask me.
