Pants as shown, color not so much

Reviewed by MidMom from California on Saturday, May 14, 2016
These pants run slightly small, even thought the fit is baggy and relaxed. I went one size up. The cut is lower around the waist/hip than the photo suggests. I was surprised to see the belt shown in the photo shipped with the pants, though I now see it is in the description. The fabric is a heavier cotton ripstop and is soft enough to be comfortable. The only issue I have is with the "light raisin" color. I thought it would be browner, sort of like a dark khaki or taupe. In reality it is an unusual lavender brown shade. The color online on my display does not really match the color of the pants, but the belt pattern and color seems to be a reasonable match. I have never before seen this light raisin color. It is a borderline neutral shade, but I can tell it will not work with some of my t-shirts due to the underlying violet pinkness of the shade. I've never seen any type of raisin remotely resemble this color, so don't use the dried fruit's color as a guide. Aside from the odd color, the pants are ok.
