Ordered a pair of these a few years ago for the start of my son's reffing career (age 14). Had to get Grandma to hem them and a season or more later the neighbour with a sewing machine let them out. Just ordered a new pair of the same in the same waist size (Small) for this upcoming season. Old ones still looked great but we had to cut off quite a bit of material for his first season and eventually had no more material to let out. 90+ games later and these look sharp on the ice and hang nicely. Quite a bit better than some of the cheaper ones out there and these have no silly shiny material. Baggy, yes a bit here and there but reasonable, my son can get his hands into the pockets (chemical hand warmers for multiple games) to warm them if necessary or quickly ditch his whistle to break up a fight. You don't want skinny jeans - you need to be able to get shin guards (kept in place with Zebras club shin tights) and not feel restricted. My son sometimes wears an older/smaller hockey player girdle underneath and sometimes does not. My son is now 17 and just shy of 6 feet tall, probably in the 160+ pound range. He has these ref pants paired with Bauer suspenders and the pants float/hang nicely.
Thank you Scotty for this detailed review. Have a good season,
