I own a few pairs of the Minnie in wool - and wear them fall through winter for work and play. They make a great base for an equestrian-ish outfit, with riding boots and hacking jacket. I also wear them as the bottom half of what I think of as "suit light" with an oxford and schoolboy blazer. I can put these pants on at 4 AM, get on a plane for a business trip, go straight to the client site, work all day and go for dinner/drinks after and still look sharp. Incredibly slimming on me - I'm not a curvy girl, but I believe the pants would hug curves well.
On the weekend, you can use these pants as upgraded leggings with a sweater (bulky OR sleek) and pretty much rock it. I'm picking up at least one black pair for this winter, and maybe more. They're really versatile, the wool is warm but not overly so, and the colors are saturated and rich. I'd recommend sizing down if you're between sizes as they do tend to relax a bit throughout the day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sallyk Comfort of Minnies, but a challenge to get on/off!
Let me preface this with the fact that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Minnies. They're my favorite pants for work. They're perfect skinnies with a style that can take you from the office to a casual weekend, so comfortable that you can wear them as pajamas. I love wearing these pants..........once I can finally get them on (and then subsequently off). Seriously, the leg opening is tiny. I have to sit down and yank these babies off my foot. I have a pretty narrow foot, so I'm kind of surprised. In the end, once they're on...they don't disappoint. Which is why I kept them in black and gray anyway b/c they go great with boots and flats. I love that they're full length during the winters.

I own three pairs (2 gray, 1 olive) and just about lived in these pants this past winter - they're a lovely substitute for when leggings or skinny jeans are just a little too casual. I don't usually like wearing wool against the skin, but had no problems with the material for these pants. The one downside is that I'm between lengths (regular is a bit long, short is a bit short...), so I had to get every pair hemmed.

I have the stretch twill Minnie & I LOVE!! I hoped you would make a longer version and was thrilled when I saw these last winter, albeit in a different fabric. I finally ordered them and am so disappointed. The fabric isn't nearly as nice as the twill, which sort of sucks you in / stretches in all the right ways. And they're SOOOOO big. I ordered a 00, which is the same size I have in the twill Minnie, and they are baggie. (I'm 5'6", thin, but not THAT thin that I should swim in a 00.)
Please fix the sizing and offer this full length Minnie in a twill!!

I am so glad jcrew made this style full length. They look so chic with flats. The color is very rich, the fabric is soft and just stretchy enough.
