I know some of you guys have been waiting for this!! Here are the Elizabeth Suzann Clyde work pants on me, in size 6 regular. These are olive twill, 100% cotton. I have to be honest, I had to wear them around and look in the mirror a lot to get used to them on me, but I really love them. That being said, I don’t think I’m keeping them, mostly because I don’t see myself wearing them during summer, and I think after trying the olive, I’d rather have black eventually.
The cotton is medium-weight, which is great for a “work” pant, but will be pretty hot in a couple weeks here in Texas. On me, the waist is rather high, as you can see, which I love, and the elastic is comfortable. The hardest thing for me to get used to on me was the pocket placement. The pockets are AMAZING, and just what I always want, but for me, and my saddlebags, they do tend to emphasize them a bit; I was always trying to smooth them out there and push them in as I tried the pants on.
I like the look of them best with a cropped shirt, or something tucked in, that shows my arms and waist a bit more, so styling them was a challenge, and made them a little more fussy for me than I like. But, wow, they are such great pants. Maybe they’re not perfect for me, or worth adding to my wardrobe right now, but I will absolutely keep them in mind for the fall/winter, and probably in black. I think they’d be ideal for travel, to warm or cool climates, because they’re so sturdy and casual, but interesting. They’re not your typical “cargo” pant!
And even though I’m about 5’3″, the regular length works well for me, I would even roll them up a bit to make them more casual, and to show a little ankle, so it’s nice to have that option.
Any questions? Does anyone have a pair of these yet? What do you think of them? Will you try them?
