George Simonton Regular Crystal Knit Pull-on Palazzo Pants
Love, love, love
HOPE GEORGE READS THIS REVIEW...LOL. These are great. I didn't see these initially when black was available. I have all colors, but I NEED BLACK!!!!! GEORGE, PLEASE DO BLACK AGAIN. I will buy at least three pair of black! These have a little more body and better drape than most of the softer, too flowy, flimsy pants. They feel more expensive and flow so well!
Fit great and perfect for all occasions....great for travel and always look good. Please keep these coming. An essential part of my wardrobe.
~> PERFECT PALAZZO PANTS <~
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE BRING THE XS, XXS PANTS BACK IN WHEAT AND BLACK!!!!
ALSO, ADDITIONAL COLORS WOULD BE WELCOMED AND WONDERFUL! WHITE AND OTHER BRIGHT COLORS WOULD BE GREAT IN THE SUMMERTIME, AS WOULD THE CABERNET BE GREAT WITH THE OTHER GS TOPS IN CABERNET.
These pants are THE perfect palazzo pant. They draped, flow and stretch perfectly. And are s-o-o comfortable to wear all year!
I got these in navy medium, and they go great with cardigan A234488. Together the set has the look of a complete suit. The pants are extremely comfortable, and I like them more than the similar crystal knit pants that are not palazzos. They have a bit more style. The reason for a 4 instead of a 5 is that I feel the need to either wear shape-wear or a cardigan that covers the behind in these because they show imperfections. I feel that way in all of the crystal knit pants, but I wear them anyway. This fabric travels great.
Not for Short Women
If you are 5'3" and under these may not be for you. The legs are so wide I felt like a baby elephant. I notice they have "wide-legged palazzo pants" too? I don't know how you could get any wider than this without catching a breeze and sailing away. Maybe I got the wrong style?
These were not for me.
I purchased several pairs of George Simonton's crystal knit palazzo pants, and now I am "hooked". I'm 5' 2", 100 lbs., and the XX-Small fits me wonderfully. Purchased in the wheat color and navy blue. I love the fabric, feel so elegant when wearing. It is wonderful, light weight, and perfect for summer. I'm hoping this will work well in the cold Ohio winters here, too. Have now purchased the crop pants in several shades, several crystal knit tops, and regular crystal knit slacks. I am so happy that I discovered this line. Thank you, George for this wonderful fabric. I am planning to stay a loyal customer on the crystal knits, very tastefully designed, wonderful fabric, extremely comfortable, and easily maintained. Simply wash on gentle, cold water, hang and garment will be dry in a few hours. Excellent product!
Are those bumps I see? Eek!
I love Simonton's designs. Before these pants, I had purchased his crop pants with buttons on the side that are just perfect. I bought these thinking that I would like them just as much. Unfortunately that is not the case. Like the crop pants, I did size down from an M to an L. They fit nicely and the length is great (I could wear a couple inch heels in them as I am about 5'5"). I bought the wheat color which is gorgeous. The pants hang nicely on me but they show all the lumps and bumps on my thighs. Eek! I am still keeping them because I bought them to wear with tunics anyway. If I were to buy another pair, I may go with dark colors and in my regular size.
These pants are awesome! They are by far the most flattering pants I've worn. I ordered 3 colors. They fit perfectly, drape beautifully and look great on. Not so wide that you'll look clownish. Although a bit heavier then expected, the material has a crapey feel so definitely can dress-up. I'm 5'5" and the R length is fine. I suggest sizing down.
The Wheat Color is Beautiful!
These pants fit nicely and I love them in the wheat color. I love wide leg pants and these are no exception. I have been trying to find pants that can replace the Effortless Style wide leg pants that are sooooooo flattering but have been discontinued. This Simonton version is very nice; however, I would like them better if they ran about an inch longer. I am 5'7" and I will have to be careful to wear them only with flats or very low heels. I am especially concerned with whether or not they will shrink when I wash them. Other than that, I think they are perfect and i hope that George and other designers bring in more items in this light wheat color.
"CRYSTAL KNIT"..NOT FOR ME!
I like George Simonton. But the "Crystal Knit," is, just, not for me!
I know. I am in the minority. But I, REALLY, do not like the fabric.
My pants had A LOT of static.
The fabric felt scratchy against my skin; and, it made a weird sound whenever I moved (swoosh, swoosh, swoosh). I felt as if I was wearing Taffeta!
I have a Pilates body. I am 5' 6" in height. And, when I tried the pants on they were above my ankles!
Sure, I have VERY long legs. But, this was ridiculous!
I can, only, conclude that I might have received a customer's return--who had the pans hemmed?
Other than that, I like the design of the pants.
Although, I would like them with a WIDER leg, such as Lisa Robertson pants (she wears in her own show).
Sadly I packed them back up and they were returned.
I, truly, hope GS makes this pants, again, with wider legs and in a more fluid and softer material.
Other than that, I, TRULY, liked the design and the over all fit of the pants. Thus, the two stars.
CLASSY! ELEGANT PANTS
These palazzo pants really are slimming to a woman with curves. Jill Bauer was the host when I ordered these and I took her advice and went down a size. The fit is perfect and I know I will get many years of wear out of these lovely pants.
I find George Simonton to consistently design clothes that flatter the woman, at a great price, easy care to boot. Simply elegant, I keep coming back for more of his fashions. The drape is great, not too wide a palazzo. This is a timeless classic. Works for both young and old. I'm 5'8", 168lbs and the medium fit perfect. He and Lori Goldstein are my favorite QVC designers and have several pieces of each. Look put together with little effort.
