Tall matchstick cord

Tall matchstick cord is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Well-cut Basic Cord I like this matchstick cord for its slim, straight leg. It is comfortably slim, skimming the thigh through calf and then slightly open at the ankle--so it is, in my view, a bit more versatile than the true skinny matchstick style. You can for example, wear these cords over a pair of chelsea boots rather than having to tuck them in. I only gave it 4 stars for style and quality because the style is very plain--nothing extra--the back pockets are a tad small for my taste, and the cord fabric could be a bit plusher. But overall, this pair is a keeper.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from great style, huge waist, average fabric I snapped these up in cinnabar in my regular pant size (T31). The color is divine - warm, autumnal, slightly brickish red. Otherwise, I'm very disappointed. The fabric is thinner, which I could have lived with. The fit through the hips and legs is perfect, and so is the length. But the waist is huge! I popped these pants on and wore them around the house for about 5 minutes and they wouldn't even stay up during that short time. I found I could take them off without unbuttoning or unzipping them. Sizing down would not solve the problem, because then they'd be too tight in the butt or thighs. I thought about having them tailored in the waist but then I remembered the other reviews in the Regular sizes stating the fabric bags out, so I am returning these pants. J.Crew, why'd you mess with a great thing?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best corduroy They look good but after wearing them once the corduroy rubbed down and the pants stretched out. I recommend buying one size smaller because they stretch out significantly. It is a cheap, thin corduroy and I am very disappointed in the quality from JCREW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great, comfortable cords these pants are so comfortable. The fabric is thin but nice, and stretchy. The red color is great, it's not too bright, close to a brick red in person. Note to all tall ladies: the 'regular' length is a perfect just above the ankle length, looks great with flats and heels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these cords Again, thank you Jcrew for making tall sizes. I am forever grateful :) These are soft to the touch, have a slight bit of stretch in the waist, and offer a simple, sleek silhouette. I am super happy with the fit and hope to add more colors to my line up soon.
