Bob Mackie's Smart Denim Side Slit Leggings w/ Exposed Stitch
BOB, I HOPE YOU ARE GOING TO CONTINUE MAKING THIS SILHOUETTE AS IT IS PERFECT FIT FOR ME. I HAVE BOUGHT 6 OR 7 PCS. OF YOUR SMART DENIM AND THEY FIT FABULOUSLY. I NEED THE LEGGINGS AND MORE TOPS IN THE SAME COLOR AS THE LEGGINGS.
Don't fit right
I read one customer review and it said to size up. I did just that, and they are way too big on me. I guess I'll wear these as pajama pants, instead.
Yummy, soft fabric and slender cut leg
This is an awesome garment! I am six feet tall and have an inseam of 34 inches. On me, this legging is like a capri legging -- and I love it! So much so that I just ordered another pair. The fabric is so yummy and soft, so don't think you're getting a coarse, stiff denim, because it's more like a soft knit. Also, I'm delighted that the leg remains slim, even though I ordered a 2X. Too often, other designers make the mistake of making the leg openings in the plus sizes like elephant legs! I just love the cut of this legging and the fabrication. Try it -- I think you're gonna love it too!
Fits like a glove. I am a 2x and the pants fit true to size. Makes you look very slim; totally recommend!!!
A Bit on The Fence
I'm an older lady and never wore leggings. I don't wear anything skin tight. But I bought these because they are so cute and the inseam is good for me. I did size up since I don't want them real tight. I wanted them to fit like slacks, and they do, except they are big in the waist. I kind of expected that. I don't have a nice figure, but the pockets in back make my butt look rounder, which is good. I will probably get them taken in in the waist. I do love Bob Mackie, he really has class.
Cute and Comfy
I own two pairs of these leggings (black and turquoise) and get a lot of wear from them. I think they fit a little snug, especially for Bob's pants, so you might want to size up if you don't want them skin tight. Personally, I like the little slit at the ankle, especially cute in summer with sandals. They launder like a dream, no pilling, no shrinkage, no ironing required. I'm very pleased with these!
Nice and Comfy!
This was my first Bob Mackie clothing purchase but I have to say I was impressed and these pants are not only comfortable, but the quality is there. I currently take a size 14 in pants so I wasn't sure if I should go with a L or go up to an XL since they were labled as leggings. Some of the reviews said true to size while a few went up in size. I decided to go with an XL but when I got them they were too big in the waist and the leg area was too baggy. So I returned them and reordered the L in black and they fit PERFECT. I would definitely say you don't need to size up in these because they have a nice soft stretch to them and the waist is forgiving. Also, the material conforms to your body but not too tight like traditional leggings would. I wear mine to work with a nice long top and they're nice and, most importantly, very slimmng. The material is not too thin yet not too thick and you can wear these now in the Summer months and can definitely take them into the Fall as well. Also a big plus that I found in these pants was the length was great for me since I'm short (5'2") so I would recommend to us shorter girls. Definitely will reorder these again since the denim color is currently out in my size.
Just not for me, so I am returning. True to size and thick material.
A bit surprised....
Normally I love all Mr. Mackie's clothing....have two closets full. Lately I'm finding his denim pants to be not the quality I'm used to receiving from his line. Firstly, his jeans are too short and I'm only 5'6"...on some other jeans had to have the tailor add trim..tired of spending extra money on tailoring when I am of average height.
These jeans are nice, but again too short, I find that they don't run true to size and I've always been a size XL in Mr. Mackie's clothing. Also, why the slit??? It looks like a small bell bottom and totally cheapens this jeans. I was soooo excited to receive them because I was sure they would fit, I was very disappointed. I am sending the black jeans back and ordering a size larger, if they fit, I'm having the slit sewed up...so cheap looking.
I hate to write a bad review on Mr. Mackie's clothing but "the truth is the truth". I really think you could do much better in the area of pants and jeans Mr. Mackie. Also, have you ever thought of making some of your jackets somewhat longer??? Why are they always crop jackets basically??? Sometimes "change is a good thing", keeps folks interested in your clothing line.
Great fit, great material, very slenderizing. What more needs to be said. More colors please, Bob.
I, too, ordered 2 pair and then came back for 2 more pair. I would like them in additional colors and also would prefer the stitching to match the garment--I think it looks richer. And no slit would be nice, too--more dressy.
These pants are sooo cute and stylish. Fit just right . Going to order in another color.
