Loved these as soon as I saw them as I have been looking for the perfect army-ish green pants with the right fit. Relaxed fit is very flattering and the most comfortable non-legging pants I own. My build is on the athletic side so these have great room for my thighs. Want every color.

Comfortable and casual
This casual, soft, winter weight chino with a light nap are comfortable and fit nicely, not too tight. They run large and I sized down 2 sizes from my usual jean size. The tall size is very nice and with the cuffs rolled down reach the mid-ankle on an average "taller" woman. They do stretch out easily. The material is appropriate weight for a fall chino and definitely heavier weight than one would think of for a spring/summer chino. Anthropologie may want to consider carrying it in more colors, including tall sizes and a beige one year round.

Tried the 'regular' on in the store; then ordered the tall size on line. The fit is TTS. The pants are comfortable and fit nicely. They're not extra-long, so for you tall ladies out there (those with inseams >33"), you will not be able to roll up the hems unless your desire is a cropped length. I bought the green which is a light olive green. The "swatch" green color in the ad is not the color in person. Encourage you to purchase if you're looking for a nice fitting, good looking pair of casual pants.
I've been searching for about 3 months for the perfect pair of faux-leather pants and these finally fit the bill! Let me start by saying that I'm no stick-figure model--I'm a consistent size 6 / medium so I wanted to be 100% sure that the pants I chose would be flattering on my figure.
I ended up getting these in the size 29 at my local Anthro because anything bigger got bunched up in the crotch area and left a gap between the back of the pants and my back. (So definitely try on in store if possible to get your best possible fit).
Onto the reasons why I bought them:
-Surprisingly comfortable and easy to move in
-Don't cling onto my legs when I take them off (like other faux leather / leggings can annoyingly do)
-Don't get hot after wearing for long periods
-Fit my 5' 6" frame perfectly (regular sizing)
-Style goes with just about everything
-Amazing line detailing over the knees and a slight bit of edge with the zippers
-Overall quality of materials -- clearly made to last
I will definitely be wearing these with a cute top for fun nights out with friends or with chunky sweaters for the office (casual chic dress code). Definitely worth the hefty price tag!

While I liked the idea of these pants when I saw them online, I didn't expect to fall in love with them in the way that I have when they arrived on my doorstep. Sleek, sexy, flattering and beyond comfortable to wear!
I paired last night with Anthro's Leather Pocket Pullover and some spikey-heeled black suede short booties, for a complete and solid look, to head out for a Sat night out with my husband.
So while I took advantage of the largest available size (33), I was still able to carry-off this outfit looking and feeling sexy, confident and wonderfully comfortable ...!

So stylish. Look much better and less shiny in person. Very comfy and stretchy. Absolutely love them!
I don't usually wear any pants other than designer denim but these really caught my eye because of the unique detailing down the legs. I tried these on in my usual 27 and they fit good, but there was some gaping in the back along the waist (I don't have a small waist/hip ratio).
So I tried on the 26 (which I've never been able to fit into) and they fit! Could button them easily. No gaping in the waist. They look a bit tighter than they do on the model (like a true skinny jean), but was assured they would stretch with wear. The 27 looked like they did on the model but felt like they would end up sagging after a few wears and then would need a belt, which I don't do..
The mid-rise is perfect for me, no muffin top at all. Very slimming and the fabric has a nice amount of stretch to them. You don't see any lumps and bumps, if you know what I mean.
These seriously went with everything I tried on in the dressing room! My only complaint is that they are cropped. I would have preferred a long length for fall, but I can wear them with booties or regular boots and they would transition nicely. These are seriously amazing and I highly recommend them!!
For your reference, I'm 27" waist, 38" hip, 5'9", 140 lbs and bought the 26.

Best Pilcros yet
These are terrific in every way -- look great, super comfortable, edgy without being "novel" or too over the top. Slighter higher rise than some Pilcros. The bias cut makes your legs look both longer and leaner. Look great with pretty much everything-- from dressier tops to tees. Only complaint is I wish they had some additional colors. Fingers crossed.

Unique and super comfy
I just got these and I know I'm going to be wearing this one a LOT! What a standout design - enough to turn eyes, yet subtle and classy. Don't mind the price because the quality is excellent and the fit is perfect.
I usually wear 26" in most brands, but the 25" in this one fit me like a glove. I'm 5.5" 115 lbs and these reach exactly above my ankles. Also because it's stretchy and higher waist, you might want to size down from your usual. Recommend that you check it out in stores, if it's available near you.
I am quite petite and because of my height, and my fuller legs, I can rarely do cropped chinos as they make me look "stumpy". However, these were very flattering and I liked the subtle embroidery detail along the sides.I am 5'3", 110 lbs 33-25-35 I bought the regular (not petite) size 25 as they do stretch out quite a bit. If it doubt, it's probably best to size down. I'm looking forward to dressing them up with a nice blouse and wedge heels, or simply wearing with a tank and flip flops on weekends.

I love these pants and bought them in blue and gray. But as with all Pilcro Hyphen pants they do stretch out and run a bit large. I would recommending sizing down one size. Or be prepared to wear a belt (which is what I am doing as my usual size is very large on me in these pants).

As to my surprise, these pants fit great. My size is a 29.
These pants flattered my body. Color is great and I bought the Acuarela Tee to go along with the pants. So excited to wear this outfit.
I have been an Anthropologie fan for well over 10 years and going on strong.
These pants are simply fabulous. They flatter so well and the fabric is thick enough for a great drop of the fabric along the legs.
Yet, they are thin enough to wear in warm weather as well. I just took these pants through a three week European vacations, mostly to visit my parents and relatives. They live in Nice (French Riviera) and the summers there are very sunny and most often brutal in terms of temperatures.
These pants did grandly. I was in Paris, Lyon, Nice, Turin, Milan, Verona, Geneva, Annecy, Lyon and back to Nice and wore them and washed them almost every day. Given this was Europe, no dryer and they did dry beautifully with the faint smell of the clothes washing soap I used.
My only and specific issue comes with my size. I am a size 0 in the USA, 2 or 4 in Europe. I tried these pants in an Anthro store, and the size 2 felt somewhat big, but I prize comfort above everything. I still ordered the size 0, as it unavailable at the time of my visit.
The siz 0 was absolutely the right size for me. This fabric gives a lot after having you have worn it for a little while.
I just washed and machine dried these pants today, and wore them later in the day. They were quite tight all the way into the thigh and gave after about an hour of wearing. Which is my only "beef" about the pants. Because of the fabric's nature, the waistband should have been wider to allow the top of the pants to stay put and not slide down as they do on me. Once they stretch, the waist area becomes a challenge: I find myself constantly pulling them back up, Wearing a belt takes away from the trompe l'oeil effect with the fake belt. It is the most beautiful detail.
(sorry for the mess in the room, I am moving away!)

I bought these yesterday on a whim - I'm more of a jeans kind of girl but these pants were so cute I had to try them on. So glad I did! First of all they fit correctly - I have a smaller waist and larger hips & they fit in all the right places. There is just enough stretch in the fabric to make them comfortable but not legging-like. Bonus - they will go with just about everything & can be dressed up or down. Really happy with my purchase!

These are very cute and seem well made. I am a true size 2. I tried on the 2 and they fit more like leggings and they were very snug at the ankle, not like the photo. Then I tried on the 4 and they were big in the waist but fit more like a slim fitting pant through the leg and there was more room in the ankle like the photo. My guess is the model sized up. The material is substantial, felt good on and I liked the design. I did not purchase but if I decide to I would probably go with my regular size and hope they stretch.
I was not immediately drawn to these pants because the pattern in the photo is not easily shown until you actually look closer at the zoomed in photos. I bought both a small and medium in these from a recommendation of another reviewer, and I too had to size down to a small in these. I find in the small, the lower part of the legs are more of a closer fit than on the model, but the pleating and length is exactly as shown. The medium still fit closer to the legs, but were way more baggier in the waist and were not flattering at all. I do have some hips, but I still find that despite the pleating, they do not create the illusion of me being more "hippy" than I already am. I can see however that if you do have a bit of a tummy, be mindful of the pleating. Colour wise they are really pretty with the navy and taupe, and the pattern is not overwhelming or super busy.
For size reference, I have a 27" waist, 36" hips, 6'0 tall and usually a 29 or 8 in Anthro jeans & pants.

love these pants!
I love the new 'drapey' pants this season, but a lot of them have an overwhelming amount of fabric around the waist and hips. I'm 5' tall and wear size 2 pants, and tried these in XSP and XXSP. Both technically fit, but I ended up going with the XXSP because the rise is lower and there's less fabric in the front. They look a bit different on me than the model, they are closer-fitting in the lower legs and come almost to my ankles. The larger size came up really high on my waist, way above my belly button, and the pockets stood out a bit on the sides, right at the widest part of my hips, which wasn't very flattering. These pants have a pretty straight fit in the back; all the extra fabric is in front. So I wouldn't necessarily say curvy girls can't wear them, but if you have a tummy, keep in mind that the extra volume is there. I'm definitely not skinny but have a more straight figure, so I'm always more concerned about the waist being too tight. In these it isn't, even in the smaller size, but it does stretch so it won't be a problem for a smaller waist. In fact, I think these would be super cute on someone with a small waist. And they're so soft and comfortable! Love the colors too - the navy and tan make a great versatile, neutral print. I would definitely recommend these, but try your usual size and one size down for to determine the best fit. They are super high-rise, so if you want a lower rise, a smaller size or a petite size might work better.

Lovely and soft but not for curves!
These pants are super comfy and soft, and I love the pockets, and wanted so badly to love them. But they do NOT work if you have any curves! There are far too many pleats, and added about 15 pounds to my lower half. Not good. I imagine if you're very tall and very thin they might look like they do on the model, but if you have any curves I think you may be unhappy.
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'm a loyal Pilcro fan and these pants are a great addition to my closet. They are more of a pant, than what I consider leggings; they certainly have some stretch, but hold their shape well, no bagging at knees, and they are much more polished than any legging I've owned. I can definitely wear these to my casual office. I'm 5'4 and they do run a little longer than ankle but not so much they need hemming. They held up well after 3 washes, and I hope they don't fade, as black often does. They are a higher rise, and the waste seems smaller than most of my Pilcro pants, but I believe they run tts. Highly recommend! Wish they had a few more colors!

Great basic leggings
These leggings are great for any season (although maybe not frigid winter). There is a reverse seam down the middle of the front that you can't see in the picture - it makes them look a little dressier than your average leggings. If you're brave enough, these can be worn as pants and you won't look like you've just slapped on your yoga gear. The tall doesn't really seem to be 35", but it does the job for anyone over 5'8".
