I want more!
I absolutely LOVE these pants! They are very oversized and high-waisted (at least that's how i wear them) and are long. I'm 5'7 and wear them with flats and I love the length. They don't quite drag on the ground (I don't think) but I do have to hike them up when climbing stairs. I've received several compliments on them. I love the green color and these pair well with crop tops! I plan on getting the other color(s) as well!
These pants have a really unique double-button front which got some bad reviews. If they are pressed correctly they lay really nicely when buttoned, and are a fun, wide-leg summer pant. I WILL say that they are SUPER LONG! I'm 5'3" and had to have at least a foot cut off of them and have them re-hemmed. I feel it was worth it, as they are a fun pant.
True Hepburn Pants
These pants are wonderful; very high waist, super soft linen. The photo of the model is pretty accurate. The thing to remember is that they need to fit at the waist, because they just fall from there. I usually take a size 6, but needed a 4 in these. They are very long on me, so I took a chance on warm water wash and medium dry since they are still a bit big, even in the 4. That helped; they shrunk only a little, and came out even softer. At 5'-3, the pants are still a bit long, even with 2 1/2" wedges. The green color is beautiful (not too bright), the buttons and tie work great, and they don't wrinkle badly when wearing. The linen is very flowy and attractive when walking.
Great Concept, Poor Execution
I fell in love with the style of these pants, and when they arrived and I tried them on, I could see they have potential. But there are several issues, mostly with the waistband. 1) it is too big---I am a 25 waist and I ordered a 0, they are not huge but they don't fit as snugly as they should. 2) the design of the waistband is bizarre--it folds in on itself and is secured by little plastic buttons, so you end up with a big lump of fabric protruding from your lower belly. not flattering or sleek. 3) the fabric fold is so big the buttons cant support it, so there is puckering on the waistband where the buttons are. 4) they are SO wrinkly--I know this comes with the territory on linen, but they are wrinkled to a point I can't even really tell what they are going to look like. I will take an iron to them, but if you are looking for low maintenance pants these are not them. great idea, but for $176 they could have been executed better
This pant is so dreamy. I love the flow and how breezy they feel. I'm pretty tall and the length is perfect for me with flats. I debated between the 6 or 8, but the 6 fit perfectly. The only thing I'd request in the future is for the front pockets to be deeper. But overall great pant!
