Sturdy Denim Set -
By: ParticularLady from USA
I like the jacket. The pants are kind of bulky due to the pockets. I would prefer no pockets in the pants to make me look slimmer.

"The pants set did not look anything like the picture. It is made of heavy denim, and the jacket is fitted and stiff, not flowing at all. Pants felt strange on, did not flow, felt like it was cut wrong. The waistband was thick and heavy. This would be very hot to wear in the summer. Unfortunately, I will have to return this set." If the manufacturer makes a set out of a lighter denim, I would buy one.

The outfit IS denim and 100% cotton and fits true to size. I wear a size 4 and the XS fit perfectly. I was however very disappointed in the quality of the material and the workmanship. It's not the first time for me to say this but it has happened more and more frequently with Orvis products. Material was very stiff and hung strangely. Pants were not cut quite right ... seemed to be cut on the bias so that they looked, odd. Heavy elastic waistband is very unattractive and makes wearing a tank or T tucked in seem unfinished but it is so "thick" that a belt does not go over it comfortably. I returned this set and only wish that I could have my shipping charges back.
great travelwear -
This set was purchased specifically for a trip abroad. The item is comfortable and looks good with casual tee shirt or a more formal jumper. The sizing is generous and I probably could have gone down a size so a Uk16 would be a medium.

This outfit is beautifully made of strong tough denim, and looks extremely elegant. I like it very much. It is going to be one of my go anywhere items. The jacket is incredibly comfortable, looks great and is very practical, with huge pockets. I particularly like the decorative stitching on the jacket. The trousers have a firm strong stretchy waist, and big pockets. I am 5ft 5inches and wear a size Large. It all looked great on me and the effect is slimming. Strongly recommended.
Casual suit -
By: Cagga from Notts. UK
I normally buy a 16 in trousers but chose the large size after speaking with an Orvis contact who was very helpful and gave me the size in inches.. The trousers fit fine and although the jacket is a snug fit I never button up a jacket fully so this is OK. The only strange thing is the position of the pockets in the jacket which are far back on the side seam but at least they are deep enough to keep items safely stored.
So good I bought it twice! -

Extremely comfortable, used for short breaks and weekends with Orvis surf washed t-shirts in the summer and Orvis long-sleeved t's in the autumn. You can tell I like it - just bought a 2nd one from the sale outlet!
A pity -
By: lizziemac from Scotland W
It's a shame this can't be bought as separates. the top was a bit on the short side for an XL, but needed to buy that size for the chest size. That meant the trousers were way too big.
The perfect answer -
By: Calabash from London, UK
I am going on a cruise around the western Mediterranean in late May and needed a comfortable but presentable set of trousers and jacket for shore trips and days on board. This denim pants suit is the perfect answer, just the right weight of material for cool or warmer weather, depending on what I wear with it. I'm also taking one of your wonderful reversible long skirts for the black tie evenings we will have -- with a silk top and different jewelry I get two outfits in the space of one! Thank you, Orvis.
The Practical Fashion of Vintage Denim
Few fabrics can boast the tradition and the colorful history that denim claims. From gold miner’s staple to the darling of high fashion, this down-to-earth indigo twill has worked its way into our hearts and into our closets. Our signature version, Orvis Vintage Denim is a traditional mid-weight denim made of pure cotton.
The Rugged Outdoor Fabric of Choice for Centuries
No other fabric is as quintessentially American as denim is. Used for the sails on Christopher Columbus’s ships, it first arrived on our shores in 1492, but the rugged textile had already been known in Europe for centuries. From the original serge de Nîmes, denim had been manufactured in France since 300 A.D. ad the outdoor fabric of choice for workers and farmers throughout Northern Europe.
Orvis Vintage Denim: The Toughness of Original Denim, but Prewashed for Softness
This sturdy cotton fabric derives its toughness from the weave — twill is the strongest of all of the fabric weaves, with threads woven in a tight diagonal pattern for increased strength. This diagonal pattern, or twill line, makes the fabric very durable and prevents it from tearing or ripping easily. The steeper the twill line, the higher quality the fabric; this is because the steeper weaves have more yarns per inch. Woven in this strong pattern, our 8 oz. Vintage Denim is prewashed for softness and will only get better with age.
Great for Travel
Orvis Vintage Denim is ideal for travel. Our sturdy, easy-care skirts, pants, and dresses are as stylish as they are comfortable, resist wrinkles, and the mid-weight fabric is suitable for year-round wear. Because our Vintage Denim is so versatile, practical, and popular, we offer a wide variety of styles for women in traditional denim blue, plus a range of wardrobe-expanding colors.
