Rated 5 out of 5 by jcrewgalnyc Recommended with some hesitation
I own these pants in both navy & white and I adore them. These are both avant garde and functional--a rare combination.
While these are Italian wool, it is a very fine wool so these pants can be worn in the summer.
The sizing is consistent with J. Crew so I ordered my regular size and they fit beautifully. I will add, however, that these pants have no zipper; it is just a large (non-elastic) waist that you secure with two buttons. Although I completely understand that zippers and elastics would affect the draping of the pants (which is beautiful), I must say that lack of either makes getting in and out of these pants a highly unsexy exercise. This is not a deal-breaker in the least, but just be mindful of that. I wouldn't order up a size to get over the no elastic hurdle because these pants, if ill fitted, can easily enter hot-mess territory.
The pants hit 3/4 of the way between shin and ankle so they are short--2-inches shorter than the Minnies.

I was excited to buy these but I felt like I was wearing baggy pants from highschool.
It also does not open up like pants, you have to squirm your way on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toast A fun style!
A fun style for someone who is willing to "work" it and put a look together that's a bit different from all the boring traditional or predictable "skinny" pants styles out there. The quality is excellent, style is comfortable. The pant runs large so be sure to order down a size or two. If you get the right size though, the "big" look doesn't overwhelm even a petite person. Great with booties or pumps.
