Richard, thank you for helping me with my order recently; my Laguna pants arrived today.
I love the the new material. I have to admit I was a little skeptical because I really like the ones I have.
My first pair are approximately 15 years old: I bought them at a North Beach street fair in San Francisco and they are still my go-to, year-around pants. The are a bit faded but still look and feel wonderful and have followed me during a few weight fluctuations!
