I think it's time I stop trying to wear drop crotch stuff. It never seems to look good on me - probably since I have proportionally short legs.
Have you tried silent? It's more of an elongated rise rather than a drop crotch.
I'm pretty short at 5'6 and my silent polios pants are my fave. I haven't tried Rick but I suspect I wouldn't like them. Silents, because of the bias back seam, don't have diaper boy swag like Rick
