I just bought these pants in black at the store and I love them!
It's a versatile product that you can build great outfits with (so you don't have to break the bank by buying more pieces that compliment it). I'm wearing it now with boots and a long t-shirt. I want to also try it with a blouse and high heels.
It's also very flattering on a pear-shape. I'm 5'10" and 160 lbs with all of my weight below my waist. I never thought I would find a skinny fit that didn't make me look too bottom-heavy. The cut is very well-made and the fact that it doesn't have a lot of stretch gives you a slimmed-down look.
Buyer beware: It does run small. Size 10 tends to be big on me, but I'm wearing a 12 right now and it fits like a glove.

The Turquoise is a very nice, vibrant turquoise (on my screen, it looks more blue, but in person, definitely turquoise), and is textured but not shiny or satiny, with a little stretch. For past Charlie pants and Cartonnier pants, I have sized up from usual size 4 to a 6. I also had to do so for these, and they fit just right, with the hem right above the ankle. I'm not a big fan of the vegan leather trim, however. On pairs in the store, the vegan leather was already fraying where the hanger clips on. Given the polished look of these pants, I'm concerned the vegan leather won't hold up.

A nice pair of black slim pants with textured tone on tone diamond print and nice faux leather trim detail. Material is a nice weight and are 97% cotton with 3% spandex so they are comfortable without too much stretch. I have 2 other Charlie pants both in 00P but I had to go up to a 0P in this material. For reference I am 5 ft and 102 lbs. The online measurements are incorrect. The petite inseam is 24 (not 23), the rise is 8 (not 9) and the ankle is 12 (not13). All in all I find them flattering and of pretty good quality although the cotton does collect lint. my local store only carried the black. I would like to know what the wine and turquoise colors look like in person.
My local store had the two-tone navy pants. I tried it on and loved the fit so I purchased the pants. At home, I tried them on and had a hard time matching them with anything.. As mentioned in another comment, it also really put emphasis on the hips. I think the side band was more distracting in daylight than it had appeared in the fitting room. As much as I loved the fit, I ultimately decided to bring them back.
I purchased the burgundy pants online and I think the monochromatic look is much easier to pull off. In a sea of skinny jeans and narrow pants, it's great to find some wide-leg pants at last!
Oh, and those pants are cut looong! I'm 5'7" and I'm drowning in them. I was thinking of having a cuff put in at the bottom since there's so much fabric to work with.

Love these pants
I loved the design of these trousers when I first saw them. Tried them on in-store, but the size 12 was just a bit snug (I usually wear 12-14). Ordered the size 14 and they're almost perfect, just a bit long - still deciding whether to get them tailored, but I absolutely love the fit and style otherwise. Great break from the standard black work pant but still professional enough for the office. Highly recommend!

Love These Pants
I saw these pants on-line and found they came in a tall length. I immediately ordered a size 8 and 10 and had them shipped to me. I was between sizes and kept the 10. The pants fit amazingly well. I'm 5'11" and I can wear them with a 3" heel. I bought the navy pant with the blue waistband and stripe going down the leg. I love this detail. It makes them really interesting. I would highly recommend these pants to everyone.
I fell in love with the print in store, then saw online they came in tall, ordered both my size & one down (i really love the pattern). When they arrived, my current size was a perfect fit, I put them on & wore them the rest of the day. This is a soft cotton, the pattern is muted soft rose, plum, the blue range from a bit of teal to a light blue & the background is a muted expresso. They hit me at mid hip, covered my big rear & I did not look fuller than I already am in them - even with a floral pattern going on! I bought these mainly to wear in cooler weather with a cashmere sweater & boots. When I unrolled the pant leg, it hit my tall frame well on the foot - hard to find for me! They looked great with a silk top & summer sandals. I love soft florals & the print here is truly so beautiful (which is why I bought the smaller size - living in hope) & theses are subtle, soft & comfortable.

I love these pants. I'm 5' 4'' and 115lb and have consistently been a size 26, but in these, I needed 27P. They hit me an inch above the ankle but are looser than what shows in the picture. I still decided to keep them as the petite sizes will most likely be gone by the time these go on sale. Besides, the pattern is too beautiful to pass.

Original and amazingly versatile
The print is subtle and versatile, opening the palette in numerous directions. Cuff it for an ankle pant, or roll it down.With silk and heels, it's all about going out. With ankle boots and a neutral blazer, office time. Pop on a sweatshirt and it goes casual.It's a slightly relaxed fit, so make sure to try it on to get the lines you want. I shop Anthropologie for original, adaptable pieces--they're the ones that last, stand out, and adapt to new looks even when the fashion changes are fairly cataclysmic I look forward to living with these pants..
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've had these pants for two years in the red color -- they are perfect. Again, Pilcro makes the most perfect pants in the world.
First of all, they are so comfortable, I feel like I'm wearing pajamas. They are soft and lightweight -- so I don't recommend for temps below 20 degrees or so -- but perfect for fall (or spring in a more versatile color).
As one user mentioned, they are a bit legging-like. For instance, you can see a slight outline of the kneecap, but I feel 100% comfortable wearing them to work, with family, etc. They may be a little revealing in a super light color, but these darker colors should be fine.
Not to mention, they are very flattering. They make your legs look fantastic and smooth!
Like all Pilcro jeans, they have a ton of stretch, but do not get stretched out after a dozen wears.
After two years, my current ones are starting to wear in areas that have been stressed (like the crotch because these pants are comfy enough to make you want to sit cross-legged and do the splits in), but I think that is honestly fair enough!
I would love to know if the rust color is as purple as it looks here or more grey, and it the mahogany is more chocolate-y brown or red, but I guess I'll have to search a store soon and see for myself.

I love these leggings! I've bought a new color every year for the past few years, and they're my favorite corduroys ever. They're super comfortable, easy to wash, and last forever! They run true to size, maybe a little on the small side. I am 5 ft. 6 in./115 lbs, and usually wear a 26 in Pilcro pants, but I wear a 27 in these.

These are exactly what I was looking for as an alternative to jeans and leggings for everyday, comfortable pants. LOVE that they are higher waisted and have a ton of stretch, since I am running around after kiddos all day and spend lots of time playing on the floor. As other reviewers have said, they are as comfortable as pjs or leggings. SO glad you have come out with additional colors. I have the smokestack and have checked stores, only to find a very bright gold solid and floral pattern. Since I am looking for more basic, neutral colors, I am thrilled with these new choices. THANK YOU
pilcro delivers quality pants with a reasonable price point. these chinos are yet another example of how consistent this brand is. one caveat: these run big. slouchy is one thing, but saggy bum is hardly attractive. i'm waiting for a 24, sending the 25 back. hope the smaller size works. i know from experience pilcro's chinos stretch with wear.

Soft, comfy. casual, yet professional with the pinstripes. Definitely vanity sized though so order one size down unless you want it a little baggy like the model.
/ Oct 04 2014
I'm on the fence about these. I love the pinstripes, but the fit was baggier than expected. I was going for a slouchy cool look but it could veer into sloppy territory. And if they do stretch out, it definitely wouldn't be a good look. Still, the pinstripes are calling my name. Maybe if they go on sale....
Both earlier reviewers are right, these are MUCH more than leggings. These are some very nice pants!! The fabric is thick and has a richness to it, highlighted by the velvety knee patches. Overall quality is superb. The color is definitely greener than pictured, at least on my screen.
For reference, I ordered the 29 Petite since I'm 5'4" and weigh 125-130. It does run large in the waist as another wrote, but these are nice enough to invest in tailoring if needed. The rise is higher than most of my pants; the waist comes up to an inch below my bellybutton. The legs are perfectly tight but the waist is loose -- I can pull it out into a 2" gap in front and 2" in back simultaneously, so I'm ordering a 28 Petite to compare, but I wouldn't want the legs to get any tighter. The length is perfect, just long enough to expose my ankle bone and wear with cute booties like in the photo. Can't wait for cooler weather!

These are now my go to skinny pants. They are not leggings. Very hip looking with flats to boots. The colour had me for a minute. They are a green like in the photo as you look close and the patches are brown suede. The contrast is hip looking. Super comfortable. The size was perfect for me as I have a bit of a bigger waist. I'm happy with these.

Perfect summer-to-fall pants!
I could not be more in love with these leggings! I hesitate to call them leggings because the fabric is nice and sturdy--not stretchy or thin. The patches on the knees are SO cute and unique. I will say that my usual size 27 was a little baggy in the waist on me, so I took a chance on the 26. After a few hours they loosened up to a perfect fit, but were still tight through the leg. I'd recommend sizing down if you want them to look like the model in the photo.
I am looking forward to lovely early fall days in these pants with a big comfy sweater and some ankle boots. Pilcro never lets me down!
