Rated 5 out of 5Â by FridaK The Denim Gods Were Generous
I love these pants!!
I am short-waisted and currently the measurements are 36DD-28-35. (Depending on my diet, the waist can go up a tad and the bosom can go up even more). All of my height is in my legs and all the excitement is up front (my rear view is ok but not spectacular; the bosom, on the other hand...).
The Denim Gods were generous with me in granting these trousers to my life.
If you are hour-glass figured with much more up front than behind, these pants will do you no end to favors. These are your DREAM PANTS. If you have a natural 1940s silhouette, these are your double-dog dare DREAM PANTS.
I am in love and waiting for the size two to come back in stock in the light denim, at which point I will be compelled to buy myself the light ones too.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Madgardener I've always loved the look of wide trousers with a fitted top. I feel quite 'avant garde' in these because they're wide enough to have their own point of view.
I ordered the size 2 as I normally take a US 6 trouser at Anthropologie. Waist 28-29", hips 36". They fit very well ( well enough to keep!) at the fitted waist area...I would have loved to try the size 1 just to compare as there was an inch or so of give.
I took a tape measure to the inseam - I get 32"! At 5'6" this suits me well as I can wear a lower heel and I think the length balances the width.
The dark is a dark indigo, haven't washed it yet...
The wide belt loops allowed me to use a variety of belts to cinch the waist further. (BTW I measured a 12.25" rise)
Weird and wonderful!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TaylorKitCat Business in the front, LSD party in the back...
From the front these are heavenly, and fit TTS, if your hips and waist are similar in girth (if you have an hourglass figure you might want to size up).
The construction is impeccable. And although sometimes jeans with legs as wide as these can get a little too far into culotte territory (those should be illegal, IMO), these manage to look funky, yet sophisticated.
The back is where it all went wrong with me. I get juxtaposition. I get irony. I just don't get these. It's like the Kellogg Brothers designed these: one wanted one kind of jean, the other something completely different. The pleats in the back: I do not care who you are. THEY. ARE. NOT. FLATTERING. They may not make you look fat, but they are not doing you any favors either.
Too bad, because again, the construction, and the front of these are sooooooo cute. Bummer. : (
