Pleated Wide-Leg Pants

Pleated Wide-Leg Pants is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy, fun, and a new favorite The description of this pair of pants is spot on... I do feel like a 70's heroine wearing these pants. I have already worn them a few times and receive compliments each time. I am 5'10 and 140 lbs, and went with a size 6 (I'm a 27/28 in the denim). The fabric is a bit thick, but I think they wear really well. A favorite for me, and a nice break from my Madewell skinnies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super stylish pants I love these pants. They are so chic and comfortable. I do feel like a 70's heroine in these! And they're perfect for the summer-fall transition. They run large though. Buy your dress size, not your pant size as these are nice & roomy around the hips. I'm usually a size 2 in pants or a size 26ish in jeans, and I ended up keeping the size 0. I probably could have worn a size 00 too. (0/00 are my regular dress sizes). I'm 5'7" and 122lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fall piece! These pants are very well made, my favorite part is functional front pockets. They are high waisted very remenicent of 1940's menswear pants for women. Love them so much, please consider making them in black or some sort of plaid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a beautiful silohuette and nice change from skinny jeans These pants are so classic and beautiful. I worE them with a tank and funky heels to a birthday party and I just felt so chic and comfortable. I bought them to wear to work but I love them so much I don't want to waste them seated behind a desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from perfect for the right person I was so excited to get these pants but unfortunately, they just did not work for me. I am 5'9" and I ordered size six. The pants fit really well, but the inseam was just too short--an extra inch or two would have made the difference and looked like how they appear on the model. I wanted the slightly cropped ankle length but on me the pants were reminiscent of the 90s crop I used to wear (that "somewhere between the ankle and widest part of your calf that makes you look like you have cankles but don't" style). If you're the right height and these fall in the right place, they are pure awesomeness. My search continues...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fit for wide legs - especially if pleats are NOT for you These are my first successful pair of khaki wide leg pants. I wish the material was more like the pleated madewell's similar to these but they are sturdy enough. The only downside is the "grow" through the day which makes them lose their shape a little but not much. I have not washed them yet to see if they go back but I think they will. I am 5'6" 140lbs and the 26s fit well in the waist (just at the belly button). Small waist and bigger thighs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Oh I wanted to love BUT... These pants had possibilities- I ordered based on reviews. I ordered a 2 and a 4. I'm normally a 26/27 in MW jeans. I tried 4 first. Fit in waist but they made me feel huge. The pleats. I know it's the look but the cotton is a bit thick so they felt heavy. The length was weird on me. If I could have cuffed them to resemble old school men's wear pants I prob may have kept them. They are high waisted so no questions there. Other prob for me is the fact I'd have to iron and I'm too lazy to do that. Just me

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not cut for short people I'm 5'2", size 6. I looked like a ridiculous clown in these pants. They're really cute on a 5'10" model, but not me. Returned immediately. The material was marginal, not the quality of denim I would expect in this price range.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yikes, not flattering These pants are cut extremely wide, which would not necessarily be a problem, except for the fact that the fabric is quite stiff. Because of this stiffness, the fabric just poofs all around my body rather than draping. I am fairly petite, 5'4" and size 4, so maybe they work better on a taller figure? All I can really say that is positive about these pants is that they are quite comfortable on.
