5/5 - 14/11/2019 Quality (5) Value for money (5) What a bargain! These long johns are real quality, made to last in a traditional way, unlike today’s shoddy offerings, they have a cotton band as a waist, so are not elastic, you alter the size by means of buttons and there is an approx 6 inch length of elastic with multiple button holes, that you fasten to the appropriate tightness. They are thick cotton that is ribbed for extra warmth. I am a 42 inch and got XL size. There are two buttons at the front, you can just fasten one or fasten both to make them tighter, I fastened both, which is better, because I can wear them round the house without a potential gap in the flies, for all to see! ?? This way, they are a perfect fit, I just came on to order some more, they are that good!!!
