I have somewhat large hips, and although I was able to fit into the size 14 in these, I had not noticed in the photo that there is a zipper tab at the bottom of each side pocket (you can barely see it in the photo on the right side). I felt that these looked a little odd and drew attention just where I didn't want it...like little tassles hanging off my hips. If you don't have wide hips, these pants are probably fine. I returned them.

I'm 42 and a classic dresser that likes a youthful look when not too trendy and I'm very happy with these pants. I'm usually between a size 10 and 12 which makes it difficult to find pants that fit but these fit my small waist and ample thighs and look GREAT - no pulling or gaping. Waist is a little roomy but fabric and cut allows a belt to be used comfortably (which is usually not the case with about 98% of the pants I try). Length could be a tad shorter (I'm 5'6") but this may not be a problem after washing. Cons: the black pair I purchased seem to attract lint but I am so happy with the cut that this is no worry.

I liked the overall look and feel but I ordered a size too big. The narrow leg is not really good for me since I have largish thighs, but the waist was much to big to compensate for big leg. Better for smaller thigh to waist ratio...Whats new?

These pants fit the way I like pants to fit - not too tight and not baggy. I usually have to hem pants and I shortened these about an inch. I am 5'4" and about 135 lbs, so not tall and willowy.... They would be below the waist on someone taller but come up to my waist. I like the slim leg fit and the little bit of stretch. These are casual, sort of cargo-y pants with lots of seams and pocket details so the slightly rumpled look of the fabric looks normal. The color is a little odd - sort of a grayish cocoa color. The fabric is light so these will be good for warm weather. The care instructions said to hang to dry but I have been putting them in the dryer, hoping they would shrink in length as much as they were going to before hemming. They didn't shrink, so I hemmed them. Came out of the dryer no worse for wear but would need a touch up with an iron if I were wearing them to work.

I loved these pants so much I bought a pair in the other color. I would buy more if they came in more colors. They hold their shape after washing, unlike many pants with cotton. I steam my clothes instead of ironing, and these pants quickly look crisp and fresh. They stay that way throughout the day and don't stretch out. As usual, Renaur makes a pant that is figure flattering. Five stars.

These are nice quality pants and I really wanted them to fit, but they were more like an 11 than a size 10 and I also thought the legs were a little full for something described as "narrow leg pants". Maybe they'll fit somebody else better.
