Kelly by Clinton Kelly Tailor Made Cropped Pants w/Side Slit
Love These Crops!!
I own 5 pair of these pants. They are perfect for my pear shaped body. I am 5'6'' with a 28 in waist and 43 in hip. The 12 fits perfectly through the hip then that problem of the giant gaping waist is taken care of with the adjustable elastic. Wonderbar!! I have a couple pair of these I wear for golf then a couple I save for dressier fare. I was shocked to see much stock left in these at a last clicks price. Best kept secret in pants!! Clinton- Brilliant!!
Clever Adjustable Waist /Our Kids Had It First
Clinton's idea of using the inner adjustable elastic, as has been included in many children's clothes for along time, is terrific. This allows a wearer to customize the fit of the pants. The reason for four stars is the fabric. It would have been lovely to have some options which are a bit more dressy A little matching jacket would also have allowed for a suited look if the customer wanted to use this for the office or other occasions..While I realize that Kelly is not a very full line at the Q , with few pieces in it and few presentations, please make more colors going forward and also try this waist mechanism in other garments( But please do not make it cheaply- keep Clinton's formula!!). I bet it would work in premium jeans.It is so much more attractive than a full or back elastic waist which too often bulges out and which never seems to look polished.Finally some common sense and style about elastic!!!
Liked everything about these except the fabric, which looked very inexpensive. It's like a twill, but larger and rougher. Bought these to have dressier capris, expected them to be more like a cotton sateen or a smooth cotton fabric. These look like inexpensive pants, which is a shame since the cut is very nice. Fit is true to size. The ability to adjust the waist is a great feature. Please bring these back in a nicer fabric since otherwise these are a great pant.
Waist tab did not help fit.
I ordered these because the host made the waist tabs to sound like they would help with the gap I have in modern waist pants. Didn't help as these are too low in the back. The front fit fine with the waist cinch but were too low hung in back.
Not quite what I had hoped
The length on these was perfect. I wish everyone would make crops at this length. I was excited about the adjustable waist (like my husband has on his dress pants), but this was horrible. I'm a sz 6 with a smaller waist and larger hip and thigh, so it's really difficult to find pants that fit. These are cut really low at the waist and no matter how tight I pulled the elastic, it just wasn't enough. They'd probably be wonderful for someone more in proportion than I am...but if you're curvy, I'd stay away.
Cheap Material/Horrible Fit!!
I got the black in a size 8, didn't fit at all, couldn't even come near closing the waist or zipping it up!!! The size on this is absolutely ridiculous! I am normally a 8/10 in the stores, with a 10 being generous on me, so based on the reviews here (big mistake!!) I went with the 8. This pant runs extremely small and it is a lower rise/waist. The rest of the pant fit fine with plenty of room in the rear area and legs. The fabric was really awful, can't even describe what it is or feels like, a stiff satin shiny material maybe?? Just awful.
What was right...length. They were too big, shoot I couldn't pull the elastic tight enough because then they were bunchy. The entire top part of the crop pants were loose. The material would be better suited to someone that was not outdoorsy, too fancy for me.
The fit was good for my difficult figure (short apple) but the first time I sat down, these pants were one big wrinkle. I'll keep them for the fit.
Great looking and fit well
I did have to return these due to the hooks at the waist. Could not get them to hook but it appeared they were not sewn on correctly. I do not know exactly what was wrong but the pants were very nice and I like the quality and I like Clinton Kelly's designs. So sorry that I had to return but the 4 stars are because I will try more of Clinton's products.
Sorry to disagree, but
I didn't like the hand of this fabric. It seemed cheap. The fit was huge. I normally wear a 'QVC" 10. They were way too big. I am 5'10", the length was fine. Disappointed. Dislike paying the postage.
I have never bought a pair of pants online that I didn't either have to return or have altered in some way. I just received these and they fit perfectly - I just rebuttoned the adjustable waistband and - perfection! I was especially doubtful that I ordered my usual size 8, and maybe should have sized up - DO order your correct size by using the charts provided. I love the fit, the fabric (just heavy enough to camoflauge lumps and bumps), and the color (tan). Kudos to you, Clinton Kelly!! How about doing these in denim also?
