I initially ordered the Comfort Waist version - they were so tight on the leg that my wife had to peel them off me. I returned them for replacement with these - the Relaxed Fit version, and - so far - very happy that I did. These felt comfortable the moment that I tried them on. They are now in the wash, as recommended to remove loose dye, and if they feel as good after washing then I shall, once again, be one very happy Lands' End customer. If you're looking for, 'comfortable' then, unless you have very thin legs, I strongly recommend that you try these first.
