Koret Pull-On Denim Pant
I wanted a pair of black jeans so chose these. The fit was expected for a size 18 EXCEPT they are long for my now at age 72, 5'4 1/2" height. They are only slightly better after washing so the fabric is decent. However the color lightened after only one wash so I do not know what to expect in the future. Truthfully, I had better results from some inexpensive jeans purchased in the past so probably would not reorder these in the future.

Koret is always reliable
The only thing wrong with the pants is that the pockets were shallow, not like the usual Koret pockets

A PERFECT FIT
These pants fit me perfectly. So many elastic waist paints have too much extra fabric around the stomach and in the legs, but these are perfect. And they don't shrink! They remain crisp looking and they are low maintenance. I have searched everywhere for these pants and am so happy the TOG SHOP provides them. I ordered my regular size.

Not The Former Koret City Blues But Will Try
A few years back, I loved getting the Koret City Blues from Tog Shop and Old Pueblo Traders ... a soft fabric 98% cotton and 2% spandex and held up well. At that time, I also I liked the contrast orangey-red stitching at waist, pockets, and hem -- and the deep-enough side pockets. That's all gone! They began being manufactured with that contrast stitching also running to the crotch front and back. That was a big NO for me and I sent them all back and quit ordering a long time ago. The pair I just received after seeing "Koret is Back" does not have contrast stitching anywhere, pockets are a maximum 4" deep so not a good place to put a cell phone. The fabric reeks of heated spandex especially after removing them from a low-heat dryer -- and is not as smooth a fabric. The tag shows 98% cotton and 2% spandex, like the old Koret's, but I really questions that! And I don't feel they are going to hold up well. I'm keeping the one pair ordered to wear around home and to grocery store maybe. I see these as a prime example of cutting manufacturing costs and of there being no standards and inspections when it comes to accepting garments for sale to customers.

Mixed feelings on both quality and fit
I ordered two sizes, 12 and 14. One was too small, the other too large. It was as if there were several sizes difference between them. The quality of the denim is good, and a good medium weight. The stitching is nice and even. The pockets are weirdly short so the front does not hang right. Anything you put in the pockets will stick your tummy out. It is dumb for Tog Shop to save a few pennies on pocket fabric and lose serious quality points.

Sizes are not consistent, but workmanship good
Ordered one pair of indigo in my usual size. They were too small, so I reordered in a larger size. Perfect fit. Liked them so well I ordered the kahki in the larger size. They were huge, so I went back to my usual size and they fit perfect. I found that the workmanship was surprisingly good, especially since they were made in China.
