Rated 2 out of 5 by Upset in Michigan Don't need an extra bump on my bum!
Although the fabric is fantastic, the design of these pants is not for women who carry their weigh in their hips. Why? The pocket on the back is in the wrong spot and it permanently gaps open. I purchased the pants one size larger than usual because Gili products always run small. As a result, the pants fit fine but the extra bump on my bum is not at all flattering! I am returning them.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GenaWeighsIn Very substantial and high quality!
I literally *gasped* when I pulled these amazing trousers out of the package!!! Thank goodness I was able to purchase them on E-Z Pay at the time; otherwise, on my salary/budget I never would've been able to purchase these. I've always tried to invest in 'quality' and 'classic' pieces that take me through all four seasons, and living in Eastern NC, we sometimes have all 4 seasons in 1 day! You will immediately notice the quality as soon as you *see* them and even before you touch them. I wish they'd invested a little more and put in a quality zipper and clasp versus what is on there. I'm quite happy with this purchase in a true navy and returned a few days later to purchase another pair in the black. Get this pant, ladies; you won't regret it! Oh, and they are true-to-size (and I'm very curvy/hippy)!
Rated 4 out of 5 by DollarsAndSenseOfStyle Great Pants, But Needs a Slight Tweak
MY MEASUREMENTS: 38-30-40; 5'3; 34DD. PURCHASED: Dark Navy and Noir Black, Reg 10. THE FABRIC: I love Ponte and this is a good Ponte; the colors are beautifully deep; washes very well. THE FIT: Although I’m short, I did opt for the regular length which fits perfectly with up to 3” heels; the Ponte makes for a lovely, snug, steam-lined silhouette; the side zip adds to the flattery. SUGGESTIONS: The rise on these pants is unflatteringly and uncomfortably high; I could never wear a tucked in shirt with these; I’m the owner of a large collection of wide leg trousers and these have an “odd” break at the knee which makes for a less than perfect leg line; I think these would benefit from a narrower break at the knee. RESULT: Despite the need for tweaks, I wear these pants at least once every other week; a favorite combo is with a color coordinated GILI scoop neck peplum sweater (A269935) and printed scarf. P.S: I think GILI has hit the sweet spot with the inseam of ALL of its regular length pants; I’ve purchased several styles and none have required hemming to fit my 5’3” frame; Hooray!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Aerorocket Good looking, comfortable trousers
I ordered the dark navy and pants are a true navy color. Fit is true to size. I am 5'7" and they are not too long, covers ankles with 2" heels on. Nice heavier knit and looks sleek on with the bottom flare. The reason for the four stars is the zipper seems flimsy. Side zipper is difficult to close. I appreciated the reason for the side zip, no lumps or bumps in front but the zipper should be upgraded. May be to hot during the summer.
