They are both made of 100 percent woven brushed cotton and both feature a covered elasticized waist with a drawcord. long hemmed pant legs and a one button fly. Style 11536AF also features pockets. There are no pockets on style 11539AF. You state that these garments will be marketed as “sleepwear/Pajama Bottoms”, yet no further information or marketing material was supplied.

If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected and should also be verified at the time of shipment.
