Rated 5 out of 5 by BWeaves 1. I'm 5'5" tall, 136 lbs, and 36-30-38 and the size 8's fit me perfectly. Actually, they fit me a lot snugger than the model online.
2. The pants have lots of stretch. They don't gap at the waist, which hits high hip.
3. My husband wondered if the tuxedo stripes glow in the dark. They are neon pink and yellow, but I have some tops from last year that match.
4. Surprisingly, these are very neutral, with a pop of fun color blocking.

These pants fit small, but once you get the right size, they are a dream. They sit just below my natural waist and have a nice stretch to them. The fabric has a very smooth finish and feels great on. The stripes are definitely more vibrant than they appear online, but the effect is still really sophisticated. I am 5'6" and ordered the regular length, and they hit right above the ankle bone, pretty much the same as on the model. I love them with a flat for now, and they'll be great with a wedge sandal once it warms up! Love them.

Ordered these online, then saw them in the store before they arrived, so I'm a bit nervous. Despite previous reviews, I still thought these would be a nice neutral khaki with a pretty coral stripe, but the stripes are very neon, and maybe a bit tacky. Didn't realize that in addition to the glow in the dark orange, there's also a neon yellow stripe. And they definitely run small (similar to the Charlie brocade). I'm normally a sz 4 but will need a 6 in these. Don't know why all the Cartonnier Charlie pants fit differently. Guess I'll wait to see what they look like on when they arrive to make a final decision.
