Women's Pin Straight Cords
Loses shape fast
Loved these cords straight out of the box, but within 1 hour of wearing them they went from tight and body-hugging to butt sagging mess. I was literally swimming in them. I am 5'5" and weigh 125. I ordered a size 27. I returned both pairs and opted not to order a smaller size. Pretty sad as I had great expectations and nice cords are hard to find. I think a fabric with more spandex would hold its shape better.

I am 163 cm tall and slim enough (93 cm hips), and this pants of 27 size almost fit me, though I'd rather take a size smaller as it is really stretchy. I liked the quality, it is a bit thinner than I expected for winter. They are more for our spring. The color (teal) is a good one, need to check whether it is washed off ot not.

The fabric is nice but the cut is very narrow
Have to return these cords as the size is extra slim. Not what I was expecting.

stretch out too much
when I first got these I loved how well they fit and how soft they were- unfortunately in short order they had stetched out too much in the mid section area for me. They were baggy in the front and then I tried to downsize and they were too tight in the waist. Just not good for me.

Great pants! Love quality and colors!
These pants fit great. They feel snug, but don't look too snug. I like that you can wear them all day and they will give, but you don't see it like you can with other pants that have stretched as the day goes on. I ordered these in the pink color and I love them. They are versatile and wash great! I think they will get plenty of use as we go even go into spring with these cooler temps. I would definitely recommend them and would even purchase more colors!

My hips are 102cm (~40 inches) and I ordered size 28. Fits very well.

holy colors batman!
I got these today. I'm 5'4, the widest part of my hips is 40", my inseam is 26" and I ordered size 29. These are about 3" too long, which is not a big deal as I can sew. The waist fits quite comfortably and falls about an inch below my belly button with no gap in the back. Don't let the picture fool you, they are definitely corduroys, despite the pictures slightly denim-ish appearance. Also, the colors are really rich. I ordered the teal and they are more of a bright emerald. I'm half hoping they'll fade a little in the wash. I like them, even if they are longer and greener than I expected.

Much different than last year's pin straight cords
Last year, I ordered two pairs of pin straight cords in size 29, and they were awesome and warm! This year, the sizing is MUCH different. Size 29 from last year fit like size 31 this year (I had to go to the Land's End store to try on sizes after having ill-fitting 29s delivered in the mail). To echo a previous reviewer, the wale on this year's cords is much thinner than last year's. However, the colors are so cute this season, I'm definitely keeping them and wearing them on warmer days. The teal is my favorite!

Everything about these pants are great except the waist. For some reason, the waist runs small while the rest of the slacks runs quite true to size. I kept them but use a button extender with them. The waist issue is what prevented me from buying more in other colors. If there were some stretch to them, the waist issue would be less of an issue, but there really is no give in the fabric.

Great Fit and price!
Right out of the packaging they fit great (no need to wash and shape them in the dryer). I got them in a curry color which is not quite yellow or gold. Just a color to add some interest in your wardrobe. They wash well and I like the fit off my waist.
