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!

These were so tight, I can't even button them! I ordered my typical J crew size and was horribly disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColourFiend 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 betsy 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 4 out of 5 by KeDav Great casual pants for fall
J.Crew pants (denim, cords, trousers) are always high quality. These cords fit true to size. For sizing purposes, I am 125lbs. 5'7" I usually wear a size 2 in bottoms, and the size 26 cords fit like they were made for me. The only thing I would change is the length. I understand the 'skimmer' pant is in style, but personally, I need an extra inch or two with these pants. I usually take a 30-31" inseam, but the tall are too long and bunchy at the ankle. Still, great pant!
