Why are these blasted things so expensive?! I have even tried looking on Ebay and Amazon. I don't know if it's just me being cheap but I refuse to spend $30-40 on pants that I will wear for 8-10 months. My belly is sticking way too far out now to wear my old work pants. The button is open a good four inches apart lol! I found one good pair at the thrift store for $5, but that's so few and far between. And I work full-time so I need more than one pair. I have enough work shirts that are loose-fitted enough to serve the purpose, so that's good, but the pants are gonna get me.
