I saw these in Costco today for $50 a pair. They are pleated and cuffed, a light weight wool gabardine made in Italy of Italian fabric. The quality is really good for $50. I never expected to write about clothes in Costco here but if someone is looking for bargain slacks these are about as good as it gets.

I stumbled across the same slacks about a month ago, and now have 5 pair. Excellent fit, quality and fabric.

I agree. I have three pairs. Roughly on par with BB. They also have a rubber "shirt keeper" band around the waist which helps keep your shirt from slipping out.

I will definitely buy more.

I bought a trial pair and they do wrinkle!

Could you tell me in what sizes they're available? I mean, is it a wide range, like waist sizes 28-54", or a situation where it's 32", 34", and 36" only?

I buy underwear and workout clothes from Costco. Can't quite get my head around the idea of buying dress pants. I saw them folded on the table the other day, but couldn't bring myself to look closer for fear that someone might see me.

I agree with you, Andy. They have that typical "crotch fan-shaped" wrinkle pattern after wearing a while. I have not found any lightweight pants that do not do that, but would love to hear if there is such a thing. Heavier weight wool flannels do not have the same issue, of course.

Having purchased a pair of Costco's wool gab trousersabout three years back, I can tell you, based on a sample size of one, they hold up to moderate wear quite nicely and do seem a good value, for the money spent! Now if they just offered plain front versions, perhaps I would add to my inventory. :(
