Some of you may know the problems I've had previously with Sprawl, but it looks like they really made it up to me. I had a pair of sprawls that they somehow lost track of in their reorganization (or it took them longer than expected to ship out, I dont know). They overnighted the badboys to me along with a free full sleeve Sprawl shirt (damn good shirt, imo). Unfortunately, the shorts were too small. Of course, by then all the other shorts they had were other shipped or had that unfortunate fabric defect. Sprawl then manages to find a pair of shorts from a previous manufacture to send to me, going so far as to ADD THE COMPETITION PRINT TO IT. When I got these pants, there was another problem: I ordered the split-leg. Sprawl service told me that the 2006's were coming out in a couple of weeks. I was told to keep these pants (which still rocked, they just werent exactly what I wanted) and then they'd send me the 2006 split-leg as soon as they were available. I got my 2006 in the mail last week without so much as having to remind them.They responded IMMEDIATELY to all my emails and had an impressive memory in regards to my order (no need to give annoying serial numbers). Sprawl has really gone above and beyond pretty much ANY company I've EVER dealt with to resolve a customer's grievances. Sprawl rules! Oh yeah, and the 2006 design looks pretty awesome. I have yet to baptise it by fire, but it looks like a sturdier design. That little yellow stitch is gone and the lacing is all on the inside. It appears the waistband has much more "give" than the previous model as well. Ill give more notes on it as I try it out.
