Loved them, but not long enough

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I tried these on and they were too short and I cannot wear pants like that.

Cute but too short

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: Small Regular

I really loved these pants when I tried them on, but like another reviewer, they were a little too short for me. My inseam is 32" (I'm 5'8" and 125 lbs) and unfortunately I just don't like the slightly-too-short look enough to keep these. The fabric is awesome and the waist fits really nicely. Sits lower, but doesn't feel like they're going to slip off. If you're shorter than 5'8" these might be perfect for you.

Love! Wish they came in "tall"

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10

They have regular and they have short, but my only wish is that these pants came in a tall as well. The regular inseam by my measurement is a 31, which hits just below my ankle bone (I'm 5'9" and all legs). Fine, but if they were just 2" longer, they would be absolutely perfect. That said, these are awesome pants. They have a nice lower rise, but not too low, and they fit really well.

I bought them with the intention of having hiking-type pants that I could pull off as work pants, and they totally fit the bill. They're definitely not technical hiking pants (no zippered pockets, no cargo pockets) but I'd say "anytime" is the perfect description. I think for traveling, these would be awesome. Pack super small, dry quick, comfy enough to bum around in all day but nice looking enough that you could wear them to dinner. If they were just a teeny bit longer, I'd seriously get them in every color.

I'm usually right between sizes and I sized down... glad I did that. They fit a little bit snug at first but after wearing them around all day, they stretched a bit and now fit perfectly.

Anyone know how these run, size-wise? Are they the kind of pants that feel tight at first then stretch out a bit? I'm right smack in between sizes per the size chart.... thanks!

Best Answer

Yes, they do stretch out a bit, and I could have gone with one size down. So, to answer you: I would go with the smaller size according to the info you have provided above. I hope this helps!

Thanks, that helps a bunch!!

Good, I'm glad to help out. I hope you can enjoy these and that they do fit as you want!

Pants that I love!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 4

I like the material on these - stretchy. I like the overall shape (flare at bottom and tighter around knees and then it fits perfect for me in the hip area. I even don't mind the tie (not usually a fan of these). There is a button and zip closure. I cannot believe they come in petite and I'm in heaven. I also love the straight leg pants too. Very comfy, good for hikes, hanging out, walks, whatev'. Give these a go!!!

Would you say these run true to size or a bit big/small? I'm right between two sizes and if they're the kind of pants that are true to size but stretch when you wear em for awhile, I usually go with the smaller size...

Hey BexOnHood! On first try on, I would say they fit true to size. You are right, they do stretch while you are wearing them and I have found myself pulling them up. When I tried them on, the 4's felt great - not too tight, not too loose, so I kept those. They still work fine for me, but I definitely could have gone for the 2 just as well, because of the type of stretch (not a bad way, they are great!). So, I agree with you that you could go for the smaller size. Or buy 2 sizes and see what you think and return the ones that don't fit. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have other questions!!

Pretty good

    These pants have the design of a casual pant but made with the high-tech material of an outdoorsy/active pant. Low rise, which is nice. Boot cut, and quite long. The reg inseam was a bit too long (32" inseam is usually fine for me). Narrows considerably at knee, which is sort of strange. True to size.
