"First, I'm not a chef. I'm a guy who likes comfortable clothes. Because none of the pockets close, I wouldn't wear these just anywhere. And yes, you'll probably want to shorten the legs (I did by 6). These days, I generally wear a 38 waist, but the Mediums fit better than the Large. I'm 56 and the L proportions just didn't work on me. I spent extra for two-day shipping, but that was probably wasted -- unless you're in the Western US and really need them. Anyway, a quality product."
