I've always bought Hanes cotton chinos for lounging around the house. One wash and they fit perfect. Now I've bought 2 new pairs and they no longer fit. They've gone to a relaxed and 2" added on to the length. No amount of washing will make them right. It looks like now the clothing people are now going to cater to people with a more ample girth than I have. I might have to (ugh) try a women's size. I checked Lands End and they have gone with relaxed fit too.
