Rated 5 out of 5Â by Beachinchick Plaid Cords
I am usually a 28 or 29 in FP pants. With these cords the 29 was a perfect fit. I got the burgundy plaid pattern and they are adorable. The colors are muted tones of burgundy, blue, grey, and black. Looking forward to cooler weather so I can wear them with thermals, sweaters, and boots.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by DMBSeattle Olive Cord
I just bought the olive print at my local Free People store. I'm 5'7", 125lbs, with more athletic legs and a round derriere. I tried on a 27, 28, and 29, but the 28 fit perfectly! These cords are by far the best fit, and I regularly wear Free People pants, shorts, and dresses. The cords are also stretchy, which is perfect for a more athletic body type. ps: the olive print is much more pretty in person! Beautiful coloring and fine detail.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Fashion366 Cute!
Bought these in the olive color after seeing them in store. I sized up from a 25 to 26 and the waist fits well but they are a little baggy in the legs. Other then that they are really cute and I can't wait to wear them!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by AquarEye True to Size
I ordered according to the other reviewers by sizing up. I'm usually always a 27 but ordered the 28. The 28 fit so strangely. The legs fit straight, not skinny at all which is really disappointing because I wanted to wear them with boots. The waist was large and frumpy. I really hope that they get 27s back in stock and hope that they will fit true to size and in skinny style. I fell in love with the green paisley but do note, as the other reviewers have that the color is much more green, not as dark or rich. I do still love them though, just have to wait for my size!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by LivyB Great Winter Cords
I just got these last week, and I can't wait for fall to start so I can wear them. I have the olive combo, and yes the outside is a little stiff, I think it will get better once they are broken in! Inside super comfy, and the print is very nice. Not to muted, but not overwhelming either. Can wear pretty much any shirt with it, since it has four different colors in design. I am very peite, only 5.1 and a half, so they are a little long, but are perfect boot pants. They will give in the waist, but if you don't want them to shrink then don't dry them and they will become looser. Love them, really excited for the cold ahead!!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by mothwing This year is the best cords ever for FP
I have bought FP cords for many years at two a year.But this year I bought the tobacco color cords and two Printed skinny cords. The first is the olive then the burgandy printed cords. The fit this year is the best ever......In the old cords I was always a size 31 the size 31 seems to be the new size 30 for me because they match up exactly the same except this years cords fit better in the bottom and is a tiny bit longer which is needed for me. As always thank you FP for being there for myself and all FP fans.....Great cords do not this year!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Brittknee Color not true to image
I'm normally in between a 27 and 28 so as with most free people pants I went with the larger size. The fit is great inseam not too short for someone with lone legs. I got the paisley print and it's a lot more green in person than it appears online but I like that. It's true these are not as soft as my last pair of cords I got off here but those were also blank nyc and not fp brand. I'm hoping with ware and a few washes they will soften up. There aren't enough things wrong with them to me me send them back just wish they were as soft as my blank nyc cords.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Patchouli Runs Small
I was excited about receiving these in the mail.
Unfortunately, these are not as great in person. I normally wear a 26 in most brands (including FP). However, these run at least a size too small. I ordered my usual 26, and I could pull them up, but I couldn't fasten these closed - they felt painted on, which I would expect with JBrand (which I wear a 27 in) but because these are cords, I did not feel comfortable. The fabric isn't even that soft- very coarse feeling (maybe this would improve with wear?). Not at all stretchy or soft as my other FP cords. Also, the inseam was very high - not good for someone with a booty.
I was disappointed with the paisley print also - it just doesn't look as rich as it does in the pictures. Its just printed on and doesn't look that durable- one would speculate if the print would eventually wear off with wear & washes.
Overall, I would suggest others order these one size larger than your usual size (or if you wear JBrand - order that size).
