A word about the fit for the ladies...
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium/Long
I initially got this same pant in the women's version in a large. I'm usually a pretty straight-up large in women's pants and they were a little roomier than I wanted in the waist and they had weird hip shaping with a lot of extra room for extra hips I don't have (and I'm definitely not a stick). I tried on the men's pants in a medium and they fit me perfectly - way better fit than the women's. The women's ones gave me a decidedly "mom jeans" look while the men's version fit just right and look more tailored on me. So if you're a chick that doesn't have a super pear-shaped figure, I'd try on both and see which fit you better!
