Love the fit and the fabric. I wish there were full pockets in front. They are only 2 inches deep which is not useful for any purpose except appearance.

Great pants, but front pockets need to be deeper. Fit is excellent especially if you don't like wearing pants that look and feel painted on. I am 5'3" / 108 lbs and wear 25P in all J. Crew pants.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Fitmom21 Not the old Matchstick fit
Wishing J Crew would go back to the old fit of the Matchstick pants and jeans! This new fit is higher waisted and not as slim - kind of feeling like "Mom jeans" and not flattering. Fabric is great and I wish I could love them like my old ones. May look good on a super model figure, but not on my 5'3" 115lb somewhat athletic one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MJsmurf77 Black is a washed black, not a true black
I'm 5'2", 105 lbs. and usually wear a petite 2 in J.Crew pants. I ordered the 26 petite and they fit me in the waist/butt perfectly. The length is odd on me--not full length, not ankle length, but falling into an awkward in-between length. I'm on the fence about keeping them. Another note: These are not a true, inky black. They are a washed black--darker than charcoal gray but lighter than black. You would think, with J.Crew's billion color names, they could make that obvious, but alas. Quality is OK--the weight of the fabric is nice, but it doesn't have a nice drape. My pair had random threads poking at along the seam, a sign of shoddy craftsmanship. I would pay more for better quality, J.Crew!
