Costco Defective Hagar Pants: Anyone Else?

I purchased two pairs of Haggar pants from Costco about six months ago. They feel like med-heavy 100% cotton material. I recently repaired the hem that had become frayed thinking that they had been too long and walked on to make them break down. Did not notice that the fronts of the legs and pocket areas had holes as well.

In conversation a friend they purchased around the same time, the same style Haggar pants at Costco in a different city and threw them out after three months of wear. Not my usual experience at Costco. The material was defective so will not be buying Haggar again.

No, I am not taking them back to Costco for a refund.

Just pissed off because I HATE shortening pants.

Tell me more! I always thought they were a good brand. Prices seem to reflect that.

I saw those at Costco and eventually went with the Dockers version. The Haggar version seemed to have inferior sewing and the material just felt less substantial.

Never had issues buying Haggar from Sears or the Bay. Have them for 5 years now.

Not sure I'd use the description "defective" as there are amazon reviews that go back as far as 2013 talking about how the material quickly wore down/got frayed. Sounds like the material is just "low quality".

Always thought most of those brandname stuff at Costco are seconds anyways.

Some brands may have less visible imperfections than others.

Is's Haggar made by Levi's?

I stopped buying Levi's a long time ago after they started fitting weird in the crotch area.

Depending on where they send it to be assmbled offshore, the quality control may differ I suppose.

I totally agree with this, and I never buy clothes at costco due to the "obvious variances" in their products.

for example, I tried on 3 different xl coats of the same brand before christmas and one was monstrous, the second was okay except the zipper was defective, and the third had arms that went up halfway to my elbows. :lol:

at that point, I left.
