My understanding is Corbin has changed as I believe they had to re-organize to stay in business. I do like my old Corbin pants but my flannels do wear and flatten at the upper thigh, probably a problem with most flannels. I have begun wearing Majer over the last 2 years, special ordered for me at the shop I requent as they manufacture a short rise pant...these do need a certain amount of tailoring that the shop provides as part of their service, but at $150 + a pair I believe they should include tailoring. I have so far been please with the wear of these, please enough to have purchased about 8 or more pair of flannels and the same in gaberdine. I was never as happy with the fit of Corbin.
