Rated 2 out of 5Â by h7717 Distressing and color issues - returned
I assumed the distressing was trompe l'oiel - the patchwork was just in the print so it made sense the wear was. The fabric is far too thin and has too much stretch for it. When you sit down the patch on the thigh stretches in a really weird way that not only looks like its about to rip but gives you a fat bubble - not what I look for in pants.
The colors are more "prada ugly chic" than what the picture indicates - not nice and bright but sort of 70s polyester gold, grey, burgundy and navy. Oh well - maybe next time.

Loved the look of these even though I knew they were going to be long on me since I'm only 5'2", but I was willing to work with them whether with hemming or platforms because they looked pretty darned cute online. However, I was not willing to deal with the super distressing that these cords have been put through. As other reviewers have mentioned, there are spots where the distressing is all the way through the fabric. Unfortunately, the pair I received had a 1/3" hole at the front upper left thigh area of the cords right out of the package. If you are fortunate enough to have a FP store near you, I would suggest you pick through the stock to find a pair that are acceptable to your taste. I purchased my regular FP size and I find them just a bit looser in fit than FP's denim, but there is a little give in the fabric. They are super long and the hems are unfinished. So cute on with such great color and I wish they had worked out, but these are sadly going back.

I so wish that Free People did not "distress" these. They are distressed in areas that if you wear them once or twice, the distressing will turn into holes.
Sadly, today, I am returning these....boooooo.

These puppies rock!!! I was so stressed about the size! I wear 25 in every name brand jean, but with FP it varies. I usually size up to a 26, but I decided to take a chance and go with the 25's. They are absolutely perfect! The material is so soft, not stiff at all, and stretches perfectly around my body. The waist doesn't squeeze my waistline like some FP pants do. I am in love with these. The material is so gorgeous! I can't wait to get the belt she's wearing with them (ordered that too) so I can rock this outfit! For reference by the way, I am 5'6", 110 pounds.

Got these in the mail today. Like the oter review, in a ball with no tags. Mine are not distressed with holes, so maybe it was an odd pair. I always have to size up in free people pants. I wear a 25 in other sizes, so I wear a 26 at FP. However, I think I'm going to exchange for a 25 as they seem to be really stretchy and are a bit big in the waist. I don't want them drooping after a few hours of wear. Other than that, I love these and they were worth the price because they will literally match with everything!

i just received mine yest in the mail and they are truly awesome. they are soft and very vibrant. i can wear a 24 or 25 in FP but i ordered the 25 to be on the safe side. . they fit perfect and arent super tight at all and fit just on the hips. they seem to have a lil stretch to them and the length is perfect considering im 5'7. my husband loved them on me :)
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lovemesomefreepeople ADORABLE But Too distressed
Got these today and I ADORE THEM!! The fit is amazing, they do not make my butt look flat like my other FREE PEOPLE jeans, MY ONLY ISSUES ARE:
Not really shown in photo is they are super distressed in many places, to the point where there are a lot of holes, which I had to patch IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO WEAR because this fabric would completely start ripping otherwise.
Second problem was that they arrived all wrinkled, in a ball, WITH NO TAGS OF ANY KIND?? Which is weird to me, what if I bought them as a gift for someone, or needed to exchange them, NO TAGS? REALLY?? Though I LOVE THEM, I am not sure if they were worth the $148 PLUS TAX, PLUS SHIPPING. With the immediate repairs that I needed to make to insure the integrity of the fabric. Good thing is, that the fabric has stretch, so they provide a superior fit. HEY FREE PEOPLE...WHAT ABOUT A DISCOUNT CODE OR OFFER FREE SHIPPING once in a while? I own more of your clothes than any normal woman should, it would be great to be shown some love!
