My original 5 star lounge pants from 2020 were so wonderful that I dreamed for years of having another pair. In late 2023 my pants got a bit too stretched out and threadbare over the knees so I repurchased the exact same color and size. Huge disappointment. The old pants were thick and smooth, the newer pants are thin and began to pill after a few weeks of use. Fabric content on the tags is the same so I have to assume there is overall less fabric now. I will not get a solid 3 years from these newer pants and that’s a huge letdown.
