I am having a hard time wearing any of the jeans I own because these are so comfortable. The slim taper is perfect for me at 5’11’’, so if you’ve got a wiry build and want a more modern look these should work. I wear a new pair for the casual-professional look at work in an engineering office and a broken in pair for everything else. Great for skating, work around the house, and generally anything all the time. Took a nasty fall on my bike a couple months ago and the dickies saved the skin on my kneecaps (not to mention the dickies jacket which saved my shoulder, I really owe the company a thank you). All in all best pants. One thing to note, I have found new dickies to run a little short, especially in the crotch, so I got a 30 waist 34 leg (I’m 29x32 in levis) and they fit great.
