They aren't bucklebacks, but have the side pulls similar to the Byrd pants from last F/W. I just put the tape on mine, and the 32 is coming out to 32. The cotton wool blend is a nice thick material, pretty unique fabric. I haven't felt the like. It is one of those things that I look for when wanting to add to my collection these days, those special things that make RRL seem unique. I no longer want to buy pants from RRL that while they may have many nuances, be specially milled, etc, in the end seem like an expensive pair of chinos similar to other brands. The heavy 11oz twill cottons, etc. make the brand special. Stuff like these that list at $260 don't really move me that much.
