In the sea of skinny jeans and stretch pants, it is so nice to find a wide-leg pant that is not a bell-bottom one! I got the black chevron ones and I love the classic, timeless look of the cut, chevron pattern and cuffs and the interest added by the detailing on the pockets and the ribbon bow at the front. Just beautiful! The fabric is soft and hangs nicely, but is thick enough to give coverage and not reveal too much, The chevron pattern is also subtle enough for the pant to work as a solid-colored pants.
I agree with the previous comment: it does not run small per se, but it runs at the top of your regular sizes. I am most often an 8 (5'7", 145 lbs, curvy), sometimes 6 for pants that tend to stretch or skirts, but the 8 has a snug fit on me in those pants. If in doubt, size up rather than down.

Nice take on a classic
These pants are pretty much exactly what you expect but with a modern anthro approach. They fit great, look great, I got the talls and they are LOOOONG. I actually have both colors. A little snug in the seat...but maybe that's just because I have booty. I dunno. Either way they are really nice and worth it to change up the work wardrobe a bit.

LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVE!!!
I ordered these pants for a dressier alternative to jeans which is the main staple to my wardrobe, and I couldn't be happier! for reference I am 5'7" 115lbs and the 2 reg. was perfect! even long enough to wear with heels, the print is very nice, I ordered the grey and I would say that they are true to the picture, I paired them with a burgundy top that I also ordered from anthro. highly recommend!!!
I'd been looking for a pair of high-quality ponte leggings for quite some time before running across these, and I'm thrilled to have finally found them. I'm 5'10", 155 lbs, with long legs and finding pants that work can be a struggle. I wear a 10 long/tall in other brands and first got these in a 32 regular (which were too big) then a 31 regular (which were good everywhere but the length) then finally a 31 tall once they finally came in stock. I now have the perfect pair of ponte leggings. I balked a bit at the price, but now consider them a great investment. They're extremely high quality - much, much nicer than other ponte pieces I own, which had a similar price point. I love the front seams and the slight sheen to the knit, which elevates these past leggings and into "pants" territory. They're very substantial and warm (great for fall & winter) and hold their shape extremely well (I can and have worn them multiple times between washings.) They're flattering, comfortable, and extremely versatile. I might note that the sizing indicates the tall is 3" longer. It's more like 1 1/2 - 2", but that was enough to make a difference and they fit me like a standard legging rather than ankle pants.

Thick, quality leggings
I have been looking for some thick, black leggings for some time and I'm so glad I found these! I rarely buy anything at full-price, but I absolutely had to have these pants. They are so much dressier than typical leggings because of the front zipper, and back pockets. Additionally, I don't think there is any possibility that these would be see-through which can be a problem with many other leggings. I got these in my usual size 32 and they go over my large hips and thighs perfectly. They are a little long for me in the regular length since I'm short (5'1''), but the petite length was sold out both in the store I went to and online. I actually think they look cute bunched up or rolled at the bottom. I think it helps them look less like the usual cheap black legging.

Great wardrobe staple
First off - let me say that I love Pilcro pants to begin with... However, what size I wear in their denim is totally different from what size I wear in their leggings. The denim - I usually go for a 26 p, but with these, I had to go for the 28 regular - and even those were tight! But, as some of you may know - Pilcro stretches out - A LOT.
That being said. These are AMAZING. They don't look like "leggings" - and can be worn as pants without being vulgar. I get compliments on them wherever I go. I can dress them down with a sweater or boots or go out in a nice dress shirt and some heels.
I'm getting a second pair - because I feel like I'm going to wear the first ones out! I highly recommend - but I also recommend buying them IN STORE until you can find your right fit! :)
I fell in love with this style last year. I find pants tough to fit--waist is always too big, hips too tight...These pants fit like a glove, perfectly, EVERYWHERE!!! I have added many pair to my collection since last November--the prints are fascinating, and I always get "I love those pants". They are super comfortable, and perfect with a plain sweater/wrap. 28 was perfect--5'8, 120 lbs.

Great item, fits perfectly, very soft and comfy. And I love the design!

Feels like butter!
These are the most comfortable cords ever! Very lightweight, silky and stretchy, the front pkts are faux, but the back pockets are functional. I am usually a 27 in regular, but bought a 28 in the petite. At 5'4", I can usually wear both petite sand regular (117 lbs). They are extremely flattering and versatile.
These pants ran a tiny bit small when trying them on in the store so I sized up to a 6. After wearing them for a few hours they stretched so I returned them and bought my regular size 4 and they're perfect. I bought them in black, blue and red I loved them so much. They are super slimming and are well made. The brocade pattern is wonderful. A little different without being obvious. Great for work

Bought in two colors!
I tried on the teal/gray in store and loved the fit. They were very flattering. I bought them and as I was showing my friends on-line the next day noticed they also came in red. I went to the store the next day and ordered them (were not at my store location). I think the red will be great for the holidays.
/ Nov 25 2014
These pants are beautiful. I ordered the red which is more of a brick color. The brocade is nicely done and gives them a look that is a step above everyday pants. They are on the tight side. I am a six or eight in pants and the eights are definitely snug on me. Luckily they have a bit of spandex so you can actually sit down in them. Highly recommended, especially for the holidays.
I fell hard for these pants and when I received them they were even better in person. The colour (!!), the mix of materials, the zipper, the waist. I love them to bits. But alas, they did not fit. I ordered my usual 25 petite in the orange/brown and I could get them on but then I could barely bend my knees. And the legs were crazy tight (unbendable) but the waist was too large. For reference, I'm 5'4 (the length on the petite was perfection), 110 pounds, straight body, and 25's in AG's fit like a dream. I don't have unusually large legs or thighs but I would say you may have to have unusually small ones to fit into these properly. Or go up a size and alter them? Regardless, I'm jealous of anyone these do fit perfectly. They are gorgeous.

Great looking cords & love the terracotta color. Ordered my usual 28R in Pilcro cords/jeans as I have done many times in the past. These pants have a rise of 8" & slightly low on my 5'3", 119# curvy frame. In the past Pilcro has been 8.5 to 8.75 rise which worked for me laying just below the navel area. These do sit a little lower...but the back waist fits bigger & a little too low causing a downward positioning movement. Yikes! I noticed that the model pic shows the back view of the waist being higher than they fit on me. I'm on the fence & thinking abt visiting the store to try other 28R's to see if the fit is a little better. Except for the waist issue on my body, wld say fit is TTS. Also, the legs are not too skinny or tight & I do have skinny legs. Length is perfect just at the ankle area.

Great looking pants with attention to details. Runs true to size. Just love them!
I saw these online a while back and wasn't sure how they would look in person. After a lot of contemplation, I ordered them and instantly fell in love. They are that perfect mix of feminine, comfortable and stylish!
The color is like ochre/moss.. ABSOLUTELY beautiful. I cannot wait to wear them.
/ Nov 10 2014
Love these pants. Got the moss & the color is on point. Comfortable, easy to match, & versatile. Slimming yet with just enough slouch. The embroidered diamonds are a unique touch, but they are delicate. so don't let your dog sit on your lap with these. I got the 2 petite and they hit at my low ankle, so a little longer than portrayed in the photo. The 2 regular had a little bunching at the ankle for me. I'm 5'2" and 120 pounds.

Stunning Statement Pants for Fall
These pants are amazing! Perfect fit, feminine yet slouchy.
The color is even more impressive in person, right shade of deep olive/moss. Will go with so many colors: rust, jewel tones, chambray, black, taupe, cream, you name it. Can wear it in spring too. Love these and can't wait to wear them.
These pants are very comfortable and fit extremely well. As noted in another review, they are not lined and I can see how that may be problematic for some in the winter. However, I prefer dress pants that aren't thick and bulky, so these pants fit the bill. I found they do run small as I usually wear a size 6 and I purchased a size 8; the size 6 buttoned and fit in the waist and bottom, however they pulled at the hips. I noticed the pants did stretch slightly during the one minute I wore them in the dressing room. Even with the little bit of stretch, the pulling at the hips wasn't corrected. Overall, the pants fit beautifully and were very slimming. The detail along the waistband is a nice touch, and will show nicely when wearing a shirt tucked in. I definitely recommend the pants if you are looking for a comfortable pair of pants for work.

Another Great Pair by Elevenses
I can't say enough about these pants. This is the 2nd pair of Flecked Brighton Trousers I ordered online. I purchased them in a navy back in September. They fit true to size. I ordered a 10T and they fit me perfectly. I love the lace detail around the waist, It just adds that special something. They are a good weight and worth the price. Anthro please continue to bring in pants in longer lengths and you will have this customer for life.
