I have worn Hyba sculptor pants for as long as Reitmans has carried them. There is clearly a new manufacturer because the new pants size WAY smaller than in the past. I have always worn an ultrapetite large and recently bought 2 new pair online. The new ones have a different fabric that are very synthetic feeling, are full of static and began collecting lint the minute I took them out of the packaging. They also are much tighter - smaller fit - than in the past. I am now wishing I'd ordered XL because they are tight all the way down to my calves. I admit that I much prefer the boot cut fit, which are no longer available. Overall I am very disappointed with the changes. Am wishing I'd returned them. Unfortunately I washed them thinking that a laundering would change the 'feel' of the fabric. It didn't. So I'm left with lint-covered, tight-fitting, synthetic-feeling black pants that I can only wear around the house when no one is looking. This is the first time that these pants have let me down.
