Effort to Find Good Fit

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Urban Walker from San Francisco on Wednesday, April 22, 2015
After 5 weeks and 4 orders, I have 6 pairs of pants that i'm pretty sure I'll love. The Gramicci Original G Dourada Pants (as well as the Vintage) have been the backbone of my wardrobe for decades. I wear them nearly everyday, all day. I needed to downsize from Medium. After ordering 24 pair of pants, I am now the happy owner of 2 pair of XS and 4 pair of SM. In general, the firm elastic waist of the XS are a tiny bit snug around my 27" waist (but I did find a couple that were roomy enough). And the SM are generally too big around the hips/legs and the crotch a bit too long (but I did find four that were on the smaller side). I knew from experience that each pair could fit a bit differently, so I did not give up. Overall, I spent $24 in shipping charges. I like the adjustable elastic waist and the straight leg. The fabric is a good year round weight for our San Francisco weather. One comment regarding the elastic in the waistband. It seems to be stronger than that used in the past (2+ years ago). In the past, as long as the pants fit over my hips the waist was roomy and I would tighten it up with the built in belt. On most I tried this go round, I really don't need the belt. The elastic on the Hush Violet and Keepsake Lilac was soft and loose.
