I recently bought a pair of lightweight cotton pants that had 3% polyester in them. Can I assume this is to help them hold their shape and not stretch out the way other lightweight cotton garments can? This was my impression, and given that a 31 was a little too tight from the seat down and a 32 was just a bit large in the waistband I opted for the 32 since, unlike jeans, these won't stretch further in the waist, or stretch to fit in the leg (if I bought the smaller size). However, if I'm wrong about that probably better to know now while I can still exchange.
