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
Actually, I said that after trying on a pair of Silent pants I just got. It's not just the drop crotch that doesn't make them work for me, though. I have a pair of Silent shorts that are subtly drop crotch that work pretty well but it's kind of hit or miss. I definitely think those Polios look good in your fits and I want to try them out (my favorite Silent piece based on pics) but my opportunity to grab a pair has come and gone I fear.
Georgia says "fuck you!" with 85-90 degrees and 90%+ humidity for the past 3 days and extending all the way over labor day!

I've lived in Texas almost my whole life...you don't get used to summer (I know all of the South is similar though - and other parts of the world are worse). I don't see how some (albeit few) people actually enjoy this kind of weather.
We had about 2 weeks during the summer where every day it was at least 95, with the peak being 107. It sucked working that week. The good thing is that I don't spend any money on S/S stuff so hooray for buying fall things.
