Rated 3 out of 5Â by FPKaraK Beautiful great quality....but gosh awful fit....
Well I know a lot of folks complain about FP quality so with that said let me tell you that these are very well worth the price tag...quality wise. These are fantastic heavy, durable yet soft denim. These def look more then $150 esp with the patch work. I'm actually surprised they are so "cheap". The colors are true to studio photos, including the "dirty" on the bottom of the jeans.
The bad :(
Sadly, as cool as these bad boys look, they are an awful awful fit. These along with a new skinny destroyed have a new fit and they fit TERRIBLE. They have "FREE PEOPLE" printed across the buttons. I really hope this isn't a new manufacturing method because the new styles with the print on the buttons are AWFUL.
They fit SUPER tight in the thighs, but huge in the waist. In fact, I got them on and buttoned. The back gaped yet it was super tight around my butt and the crotch was SO LOW but I def couldn't pull them any higher. Very awkward fit.
Length: Well you obviously can see on the model and in the video this month, the pants are super long even on the 5'11 model in chunky platforms. I am pretty tall for an "average" girl. I am just under 5'7" and these were WAY too long. I would have to take off the entire hem if I wanted to purchase them. Doesn't that take away from the beauty of the pant?
Overall: The quality is amazing, wash fantastic, but the fit is less then to be desired. If you are tall, with no butt and small thighs these will work, otherwise be sure to try these on!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by alm7 Please re-do!!!!
These pants are freaking amazing..in theory. I mean look at them, the patchwork, the wide flare. For a festival lovin hippie like me these are a dream come true. From the moment I saw these in the catalog, I knew they were trouble. To me, they didn't even appear to fit the model. So I went to my local store and I tried these on because I just had to see for myself, maybe I'd get lucky. These pants have a terrible fit. I'm 5'2, that's the first problem, these would be impossible to hem and no doubt necessary. I'm 105 llbs. I normally wear 25. Here's the thing, they ray large around my waste and small around my legs? The inseam is all wrong. The crotch falls way too low and is kinda tight. The girls at the store all agreed they had the same issues. I so wish FP would re-do these, but get the fit right.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by pistols Cute, but huge.
I love these jeans and get a lot of compliments on them, but they are humongous. Based on the measurements and other reviewers, I bought a size 27 and definitely should have gone with a 25. However, being that they have that casual hippie look to them, they work being baggy just as well (with a belt). That said, I do wish I would have exchanged them for the correct size, but I ripped the tag off in my excitement and am stuck with huge jeans.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by bcdesign Just need to work with these a little
I agree with what other reviewers said about the fit being weird, but they are workable for me. I might need to wear a belt to keep them from slipping down and I will probably where a longer shirt to cover the weird waist but the legs are the best part and they are ADORABLE! The thighs do fit slim but I think it makes my legs look skinny so I like that! If you are willing to work with them they are adorbs!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by kandlmoran2003 Crazy Long, Super Tight Thighs
I tried these on at a local Free People store where they are on sale for $37.50. Even at that price I didn't want them. The thighs were so tiny and they were long enough that I could have cut off the entire bottom above where they are seamed and they still would have been long (I'm 5'7"). The rise is really high, so they kind of fit like they were made for a guy. I have a friend who is almost 6' tall and about 110 pounds... these would be awsome on her...or Barbie...For the rest of us...eh.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by MamaSquish AMAZING!!
So I just got these in the mail today and immediately put them on, and I haven't taken them off!! These jeans are AMAZING and exactly what I was hoping for!!!! Denim is great quality, perfectly faded, comfy but NOT stretchy (I hate freaking stretch denim. I want some real jeans, thanks) and I could not be happier. I know some folks have taken issue with the fit, but I recently had a baby and I'm carrying extra weight around my middle/upper hips, and it's SO hard for me to find pants that fit...but these TOTALLY worked. Very comfortable and totally flattering, I'm kind of an unusual shape and I needed some pants with an unusual fit. They're long but it's workable. Love. For reference, I'm 5'8', 180 lbs, got size 31.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by TaniaM SUPER CUTE BUT AWFUL FIT!
So because I read the reviews before I ordered, I sized up. I normally wear a size 27 or 28 in free people jeans and I ordered a size 29. I am 5'7. They are so cute and exactely as pictured, but the fit, HORRIBLE. The waist is big and the thighs are tighter but because I sized up they are fine. I just wear a belt and Voila, they work out great. Still very long but I wear my high platforms with them. If you dont like wearing platforms ( High ones) then dont bother getting this jean because the cost to alter them is not worth it because you want to keep the cute way they are at the bottom. Just size up and wear a belt. If you like a bell bottom fun pair of jeans you have never seen before, get them:-)
Rated 4 out of 5Â by oceanwishes Super Cute Awful Fit
I have to agree with the other reviewer. I got these in the mail today and was unbelievably excited as they were on back order when I purchased them. The look and color are amazing and exactly what I've been looking for in a flare. That being said when I put them on the thighs were comfortable the butt was huge and the waist was massive. Even with a belt the pants bunch and look funny for such a high waisted style. They fit right at the belly button. I am disappointed but hopeful that if I just size down about 2 sizes they will fit the way they are supposed to. I am still very in love with these jeans and will attempt to keep them just in a smaller size. Oh and they are very long. On my 5'8 frame I could still lose about 2 inches off the bottom while in a platform.
