aha, that seam is closed without any visible stitching. indeed they were pre hemmed, but i had them shortened. i have no illusions that these pants are higher end. they were merely meant to be used as serviceable, decent casual pants.

I thought Stitch was wearing Crew's "Essential" chinos, which are quite preppy and blazer-worthy.
Have you taken them to an alterations tailor yet? They're not really YOUR slacks until they've been altered.
they are not really blazer worthy, but they are not = to sweats imo. the tailor only shortened the hem. didnt have her mass with leg width or anything. not worth spending more on alterations than the pants, they were 30 bucks each.
