    Classy but Casual - 5/13/2013

    These pants are a very nice fabric and drape well. The stitching gives them a little something extra...could be dressed up with a black top to match the stich. I like my clothing to have just a touch of something interesting but still be classic. These fit the bill. The fit is true to size.

    Don't buy!! - 5/11/2013

    I would have returned the Pants but I had shortened them. The material wrinkles too easily and the fit of the pants is not good around the groin

    I guess I should have known that Tencel is a flimsy fabric. The most frustrating thing for me about Orvis pants is that the size, fit and shape varies so much. In these, a 14 is way too small, whereas in others a 14 is roomy and almost too large. I don't have this problem of inconsistency with other company's pants.

    These pants fit well, true to size and very comfortable. Have a good look. Easy to wear. A bit dressier than regular jeans.

    liked the fit & the wide legs but the decorative stiching ruined the look for me. Hope you will make this fit and wide leg in other pants especially khaki cotton

    Casual Looking - 9/6/2012
    By: from Occidental, CA

    I bought the dark denim color which is very nice and gives them a more polished look than regular jeans. I like the straight/wide leg. The fabric is about 60% Tencel, 40% cotton. They are relatively soft and a mid-weight. They have enough stiffness to keep their shape. Because of this the larger size looked bulky on me. The waist is above the belly button. The button & zipper fly has an overlapping waist band with 2 buttons (second one on the inside) for secure closure. The waist band has 2 elastic panels. The elastic is as wide as the band, but they only stretch about 1/2" all together, which is about the same as a jean with some stretch in the fabric. I really don't like the pockets. They are patch pockets (on the outside), so it's not just the contrast stitching. This makes them look very casual and a little juvenile in my opinion. I bought a size up for comfort and they are really way too big, especially the waist. I would exchange them except for those darn pockets.

    Love Tencel - 9/3/2012

    Tencel is a great fabric for travel. Black stitching on safari color is most attractive.

    Useful large pockets - 7/25/2012
    By: from Dorset, UK

    These trousers are very comfortable and would have been perfect but unfortunately the contrast stitching at the ankle had a rather messy knot. A little more care should have been taken to get the stitching neat.
