I bought these Andy trousers last week from one of the ladies at the ES meetup I hosted a couple weekends ago. I think they’re really cool, but I’m not sure I LOVE them love them. I’m giving them a chance though, because I think they’re like the clyde pants; you really have to get used to the silhouette and then they’re all you want to wear.
These are definitely a “trouser” and something I would envision Katherine Hepburn wearing with some brogues, and a loose blazer. Or Diane Keaton.
On me, they are tricky to style though. I tried them on with pretty much everything I could think of to wear them with, and they really look best with a slim, fitted top, tucked in tight; the proportions just work better.
I did also receive the black silk crepe andy trousers I ordered with my gift card from Elizabeth Suzann and I REALLY LOVE those. I think the Andy Trouser just works better in silk. That said, I did have them hemmed about an inch, which is perfect. But my tailor asked me if she should taper them in a bit and I said no, but now I’m wondering if I should do that. I’ll show those to you later this week, but I do think they would look interesting tapered in a bit more at the hem.
All in all I really like this new Andy silhouette. It’s a refreshing change from the florence, which is very wide. I also like that the Andy isn’t just a straight pant – that would be boring. The medium is the right size for me, regular the right length sort of…in the silk it was too long, in the cotton canvas it’s just right.
Does anyone else have the andy trouser in any fabrication? what do you think of it?
