Toothpick cord

Toothpick cord is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from cord love I read the reviews and was convinced I needed to give these a try. I am 5'1" and weigh 108lbs. I ordered one pair of size 24 and they fit perfectly. I normally have to have my pants hemmed, but the length on these are perfect for me. I have already ordered a second pair. I am sure more cords are in my future. Thank you J. Crew!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cord! Love JCrew cords. Buy them each year and they don't disappoint. Fun colors too. They are making it harder this year as they are not carrying them IN their stores...strange decision and not a good one if I may say so!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE these cords I have MANY toothpick pants. Yes, they are 'toothpick,' so allowing for the very slim fit, they are true to size. I am no toothpick myself - I buy the largest of these (32). I am 5'2"/pear-shaped and my true sizing is in the petite category - I use these as full-length pants (28" inseam). My only issue is that I do have to pull them up at the back due to sagging, less so when I use a belt, because the cut is 'regular' rather than 'petite.' For me this is minor because I usually wear a long top over the pants, so it's not visible. The cord fabric is soft yet durable, and in recent years the fabric has improved from the past (older versions had excess "wear" on the front of the thighs). My only quibble with these pants is that, on occasion, when I've bought at a deep discount price, there is a slightly twisted leg (i.e., fabric cut slightly on bias rather than on grain), but not so much so to call them defective or to prevent me from wearing them. JC, please continue making these cords.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I am 5'5" 117 lbs and normally wear xxs tops and 24 waist pants, or 00 in j crew… So in the matchstick I wear a 24 but these I size up to a 25. The 24 does fit "ok" in the waist just not exactly comfortable, and they are pretty tight in the legs. Either way it could be a personal preference, or simply that these run small I do not know. Either way I love these pants! So perfect for fall and winter as they pair well with anything and everything!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but run large I have two other pairs of toothpick cords -- one that I bought 2 years ago, and one that I bought last year. They seem to get bigger and bigger every year. That being said, J Crew needs to make these in a size 23 because these suckers do not shrink. I still adore my pair from two years ago, but I'm just making do with the newer ones. The color, style, and quality are great, but they are just too big. Consider ordering a size down. I wish I had that option.
