Women's Fit 2 Portico Side-zip Ankle Pants
I had really hoped these pants would be nice for spring. Although I think the side zipper is a nice feature of these pants they were too large in the hips and I found the legs a bit too skinny. When I sat down in them and then stood back up the pant legs seemed to get caught up on my calfs. It was very annoying to have to reach down and pull them back down. They just were not made for me so I returned them. : (

Love this pant its fit and fabric, but sizes are not consistent from color to color.
I bought the size 4 in black and they were a perfect fit -- slimming and just enough room (and stretch) to be very comfortable. So I ordered the navy pant in size 4. Guess what? The navy pant was almost 1 3/4 inches smaller than the black in both the waist and hip. I am returning the size 4 navy for size 6 navy because I LOVE this pant.

Beware this Jacquard Pant fabric has NO stretch!
Lands End Team please assist us with purchasing correctly the first time, by being more accurate with your description of - fabric stretch and sizing recommendations.
The Portico Jacquard side zip Pant fabric has very little stretch, but has been cut / sized the same as the Portico 4 way stretch Twill side zip Pants.
I am a 28 waist and 38 hip and wear a Regular size 4 in LE 2 or 4 way stretch Twill Pant for a perfect fit.
The Regular Portico Jacquard side zip Pant in a size 4 was too tight through waist, hip and bottom opening.
This Jacquard Pant is lovely, but is no use to me if they do not even do up!!
I think I will need to size up 2 sizes as there is NO give in this jacquard (woven fabric), so will try a size 8 and see if that fits.
Lands End Team, please correct!

Just what I was looking for.
I really like these pants; they fit well and the knees don't bag. They are a bit snug when you first put them on, but they have quite a bit of give without getting baggy. I'm 5'7" which I consider average, but the regular length was very short, about 6" above my ankles, so I exchanged them for the talls and they fit perfectly. They washed and ironed well.

Not like my other color same pant
I have these pants in a dark blue and they are my very favoritie pants. They look good, hold up well, and I love them. But when I got them in black, the fabric was thinner and the fit tighter. When I checked in the Lands End store at Sears near me, I see white ones that are just like my dark blue ones, same fabric with lots of body. The black ones there are thinner like the ones I got by mail. I sent them back. Wish the white ones had been a different color...I would have bought them.

Slenderizing and sexy
I am 5'10" and have trouble finding pants that fit well. I selected the Tall size in this ankle pant. The fabric is a little stretchy but it is form fitting. I have larger calves and the pants are a bit snug in the calf area but they fit fine. This is the first ankle pant I've purchased and I love them. These pants fit great and they make me look slender. When my husband saw them, he really liked them. He teasingly told me not to wear the pants to work because they looked too sexy!

Sleek & Sexy Fit
I am 5'11" tall (145-148 lbs.) so I ordered a size 8 TALL. They are very fitted, but in a good way. The fabric is very nice and thick and seems to hide some of the imperfections of my hips & thighs. I love the wide waist band, the fact that they side zip! No bulges around the middle if you are wearing something clingy. I've worn with tall patent pumps, suede booties and also my tall black riding boots...so you can change the look from super dressy to casual. I haven't washed mine yet but may dry clean based on another reviewers bad experience with laundering them.

Color was beautiful but poor quality.
Very disappointed in the quality of the pants. Initially the fit was perfect but after the first wash the pants were very baggy all over. Hated to return them but experienced a no hassle return.

My curves love these pants!
I am 5ft 7in, weigh 150 lbs and carry most of my weight on my hips and backside. I wanted a dressy pair of pants with a sleek front and no belt loops that I could wear with long close fitting tunics and sweaters. Voila! these are the pants that fit the bill. They fit close to my body but are not tight; since Fit 2 is slightly below natural waist the wider waist band fit sperfectly around my tummy. I love the ankle look and I have worn them with flats and high heels. Since the leg is not flared at all they look great with my tall boots too. An added bonus -- wash up well. I wash in cold water; put them in the dryer for about 5 mins to rid the wrinkles and then hang to dry. Many complements received!

Best ankle pants EVER!!!! wish I could get them in every color!
The 5% spandex makes these ankle pants perfect for wearing with knee high boots. AND, the side zip gives a smooth flat front, making them great for work! Best purchase from Land's End and I am a frequent shopper!!! Give them a try!
