The "horseshoe button" is a hook on the inside of the pants popular with auto mechanics because it won't scratch a cars finish, were a regular button on the outside of the pants may. Go to http://www.dickies.com there you can see all the styles they offer not just what Walmart chooses to carry.

These pants do not have a button nor a button hole at the waist band. The waist band is held instead with a metal flat-loop clasp that slides around a metal clip. The metal is not a wire. The metal tabs are wide and flat.

Style 874, size 32X32 measures 9" wide at the bottom of the leg when laying flat. Like on an ironing board, (they never need ironing, they are great pants). So in circular terms, the circumference is 18", and the diameter at the bottom of the leg is 18 / 3.14 (pi) = 5.73 inches diameter.

Question

Why are the workpants different. Some don't have the elastic insert in waistband.

My husband bought pants from WalMart and I tried to buy the same pair but they were completely different and the size was nowhere the same. He needs the ones with the elastic insert and the pants had nothing like that. It was just a plain waistband.

Dickies do make pants like you described, they are hard to find so you'll have to keep checking every time you're in the store. You might try different Walmart stores. Wrangler makes a style of work pants that have elastic over the whole waist band. They are called "Comfort Solutions Series". Good luck finding those also.

The regular work pants and the others or a little different, you have to order the same ones you want. I have never bought the ones with the elastic in the waist in the Dickie Brand but in other brand of pants I have noticed that they seem to be a little bigger. I used to buy them at WalMarts store all of the time but they are getting harder to find so I have to order most of them.

OMG

These pants stink... why would you guys send someone pants that smell like this? How do I get rid of the smell as they were intended to be a gift. I read a review where a person claims to have washed them twice and the smell will not go away. This is horrible. If the smell does not go away by tomorrow, I will be returning them to my local Wal-Mart!!

I soaked my pants in the tub with warm water and 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar then put them in the washing machine and wash normally with your own detergent....dry on low...smell comes out! As matter of fact, you can wash all your clothes in vinegar, you'll be surprised on how they turn out!

use white vinegar in the washer with the pants either put in along with your detergent or in the bleach compartment or fabric softner compartment if not using it (or both). I have been using white vinegar with most of my washer loads to combat the musty odors common in the HE front loaders. I was having trouble getting my husbands clothes smelling fresh. This does the trick. No vinegar smell afterward just makes clothes smell more like the detergent or fabric softner.

Smell comes from the plastic that the materials are shipped in. Just wash the pants and use fabric softer or dryer sheets when drying them. The smell comes right out as well as the stiffness in the pants.

Faith, It's too bad the pants you received "stink," especially since you bought them as a gift.
Just so you know not all of them have an odor. I ordered several pairs and none of them have an odor.
Perhaps you could spray them with something like "Frebreeze" and air them out.
Good luck
