Women's Pin Straight Cords
I got two pairs of these pants in a Lands End store in WI, not close to where I live (so I can't return them). I've worn them about 4 times, washed them once and will probably have to get rid of them. They're so stretched out I can't wear them without a belt but wearing a belt causes the fabric to bunch up and look bad. They're really cute colors, but I wouldn't recommend them unless you buy a size or two small and just deal with being uncomfortable the first few times you wear them. Also, they aren't very warm at all. I was hoping they'd be good winter pants, but definitely do NOT keep you warm in freezing temperatures.

In love with these pants
Fit perfectly. Love the longer length. Love the stretch. Just a perfect fit all the way around. Purchased in burgandy color and they're so versatile. Love this purchase!

very nice cut, but...
I ordered these pants in the burgundy color in a 29 which fit really well and looked great. I love the straight cut on my calves instead of a true skinny jean. But the issues are these: Two more belt loops in the back would hold my belt better and not allow the waistband to sink under the belt after moving around. The length should be about two inches longer even on my short legs. The fabric needs a bit more spandex to really hold its shape throughout the day. I will keep them and wear them but I won't be able to count on them as "go to" pants if I am out all day or if I want to dress them up a bit. Too bad because the cut is very nice on me and I would have added a cashmere sweater and heels to go out at night. But they are just too droopy for that. So they will be very, very casual slacks.

Great cords, bit different from last year's pin straight cords but still AWESOME
I bought several of these cords last year and came back this year to order the bright yellow ones. When I first took them out of the box I was a bit nervous, as the material in this year's pair is much thinner than last year's. It's also a "smaller wale" corduroy, much finer than last years. However, once I put them on any misgivings disappeared. They fit perfectly, and are a great lightweight alternative to jeans. I'll keep the heavier pairs for colder days, and wear these into the spring. I'm 5'5", 122, very athletic, and the 26 fits perfectly. I wear them tucked into boots, rolled over booties, and long over oxfords and loafers. Would love another pair, but (don't tell my husband) -- I actually don't NEED another pair of pants. Sigh. Buy these, you won't regret.

Fit like a glove
I ordered the Pebble and they are great pants. Skinny to the knee and then straight. They will fit inside my boots or I can wear flats. I thought the length was fine for the shoes I bought them for. I'm 5'9 , 145 lbs and ordered a 30. They do sit a good 2-3 inches below my belly button. They are much thinner than regular cords, so they will be fine for spring too. They are very soft and the color- well, I can wear them with anything. I'm back to order another pair.

Love the fit and color!
I have been looking all over for a greenish colored jean and these work great' I am 5'8 and 143lb (curvy - small waist and bigger bottom) and the 29 is perfect. The length is ok - I can wear a small wedge with them and they will still be ok. I wish they had a greyish color!

I like the pants but they were too short.
I like the pants but returned them because they were too short. It would have been nice if they came in additional lengths like most of the other pants.

I find that a lot more stores are using more accurate sizing for women these days (i.e. waist measurements rather than the 2, 4, 6 etc. framework) and these fit great if you choose your size according to the measurements of your body. Got them in brown and will be wearing them all fall and winter with some long underwear for extra warmth.

Love the fit
These are very similar to the canvas pin straight cords from last year, except the rise is a little higher and the fabric a little thinner- hence 4 stars. Would also love some darker colours for winter. I'm 5'8" and I like the 31" length. I ordered the pebble which will go with anything- just wish the corduroy was a little heavier.

more skinny than straight
good quality but these were more skinny style than straight. Maybe the Canvas styles are more fitted but I ordered a size up and waist was fine but legs too snug for me. Also, the cinnamon color is really just what it says...wanted a more browish color...it was reddish brown.
