Once I had these on, I realized $168 wasnâ€™t completely unreasonable for a perfect pair of polyester pants. The design makes them versatile for work or pleasure.
SIZE: Iâ€™m a consistent size 6 in Leifsdottir pants. 5â€™5â€ť tall, 135 lbs, 36-29-35, long torso, big thighs.
FIT: TTS with a little extra room for comfort. The fit is Body Con, so Iâ€™m happy these arenâ€™t tight. There is plenty of room at the calf and ankle. I like a wider waistband to hold is my spare tire. It lands 1.5 inches below natural waist. The closure is overly detailed, but will look awesome with a tucked top. There is a sash or tie that feeds through two belt loops to the left, and has 2 sets of hooks plus a security button. Comes with an extra button. Mine is already pulling loose. The ankles and side pockets are equipped with high quality zips that donâ€™t stick. The side and back pockets arenâ€™t much good for more than a scrap of paper or dollar bill.
FABRIC: Why make such a great pair of pants from Polyester? Not that Poly doesnâ€™t work. Once I ironed out the shipping induced wrinkles, it appears I will never need to iron them again. After 3 wears, they remain almost wrinkle free. The fabric has a nice weave pattern and sheen you didnâ€™t see on Grandmaâ€™s Poly. So far there are no pulls in my pair. Too bad they are Dry Clean. But I have discovered that powdery substances will wipe off clean. There is no reason for lining since the fabric is soft and medium weight.
I picked up the Turquoise version now. I plan to grab the red if these make sale.
I would love to own these in Navy, Brown and even Khaki. Hint, Hint Anthro.

These pants are soft and comfortable and can be dressed up or down. The fit is true to size and sits low on the hip. The detail and fabric quality is amazing.

The pictures online made the pants look pretty simple but once I tried them on the fit was pretty strange. I'm pretty straight up and down and there were spots for hips (which most women would fit nicely into), but my body looked awkward in them. With a longer top they might work. I'll keep them, but wouldn't have bought them if I had tried them on in the store. They are also a really bright red, kind of a fun color, not subtle.
