J Crew's silk colorblock pant (96623, $128) run XXS - XL, if I recall correctly. Most alpha sized items run that span. They came in green, and black. I'm so glad I ordered the black ones and have pics to share because they mysteriously disappeared from the website around Dec 28 or so.
Size S - Relaxed waist = 30", Hips = 42"
Size M - Relaxed waist = 32", Hips = 44"
Size S - Let's start out with the most flattering photo of the bunch. The green is very bright. If you're going out with friends and want to make sure they always know where to find you, wear these. Your options are limited to a degree. The pants are very thin. I.e, colorwise, you'd want to wear them to an amusement park so you're never lost, but not these. I can't see wearing them where there might be a lot of physical activity like sitting/standing/sitting repetitively. I guess that leaves out Mass, too. Cracking jokes here, work with me, people.
The pants did some weird fold thing across the front. Not good. They also clung to my legs. Not good.
I tried pulling them up, but it just wasn't working. They didn't feel comfortable like I thought they should. I would feel self conscious in them all day.
A little vpl (visible panty line). It's not showing up as much in the picture as it did in real life. It was more obvious and I don't wear whites.
Some silk colorblock pants. I like the idea. I didn't like that they felt half a size too small. I got the measurements and they should've fit. I feel like I got sent a bad pair. Another qualm is the color. So dang bright. They paired it with a pale blue buttondown and navy blazer in the Lookbook which I think would work. But these jokers are bright. I wasn't seeing a lot of options right off the bat with them. I think I could pull it off, but it would take a minute. And would need a pair that fit well.
Size S - The black pair fit totally different. Instantly they felt the way I'd expected them to feel. The rise felt fine. There was no weird fold at the front hip. Again, the fabric is very thin so this is a late spring/summer/early fall pant. Depending on where you reside, of course.
The sporty stripe. The inseam is long. J Crew finally makes a pair of full length pants and they're thin silk in winter
Fun. Fit well. They are a bit loose, but they're supposed to be that way. I just mention it because if you're thin you may find them to be big in the hip area. Again, the pants themselves are thin, but they felt comfortable. Yes, thinner than the silky dot. The silks are just different. The stripe could've been a little narrower, but I also like the wideness. Makes a statement.
Tiffany Rose, I think you could rock either color if you like the sporty style.
