A221815 - Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Pull-on Straight Leg Pants
I just received today and I LOVE these pants. After the reviews, I hesitated for so long and then decided to jump in and try them. They are classic and I love the weight - I just ordered the olive in 1X. I am 5'8" and I can wear with low or high heels. No binding around the waist, around the leg or around the toosh. Plus sizes, get these, you will love them, the do no emphasize places you don't want emphasized. Thanks Louis.
I don't mind today's polyesters (some of them), but oh my gosh, this one is that slinky, slippery feel to them. Not a bad fit but I would never wear these out of the house - as someone said they are pajama like. I sent them back as I could get a similar pair from Walmart for $9. Love Louis but not this one:-(
Looks like pajamas
Very disappointed. I usually love all of Louis Dell'Olio's clothes but these pants are so flimsy and pajama like I immediately sent them back.
I have my favorite pair of pants from Linea that is a pull on straight leg pointe knit pant. They never brought it back and should stick with the old classic styles instead of these flimsy pants.
Go back to the basics, I am sure not many women would wear these pants out of the house.
These are beautiful pants light weight with fabric that just flows.
My body type needs wider legged pants. Its all about smoke and mirrors as Louis says, and these pants make me look slimmer.
It took me 2 tries to get the right fit, but the price of postage was worth it. I was just so glad that someone had the same sizing issues and made a return. My original order contained all 4 colours, now after all the dust settles I have 2 pairs that FIT. I will need to make alterations to the length as they are long, but that is a given.
I don't always luck out when it comes to pants, but this time I'm one happy customer.
These pants are killer!
I normally wear a Linea Medium, but sized down in this pant., as they run full. If you're looking for comfort, look no further, these feel like jammies. As always Louis is all about style and quality!
Nice Easy Fitting Pant
Ordered Navy, Olive, and Black in small. Most times I am a medium in bottoms but this pant is a very easy fit so based on the "Click Here" measurements I went with the small and the fit is wonderful. The fabric has a nice drapey flow and is light weight so great for the warmer months. I am petite so had them tailored to take off 4 inches. I have worn the olive with the tribal print blouse (A221806) and it looked great.
Light, flowy, and sooo COMFORTABLE
I have these pants in three of the four colorways. They are fabulous, light as air without being sheer. The pants do run a little generous (if you checked the click here measurements, you know that); but that's the way Louis designed them, to be easy on the body. They don't cling to the body (unless you have major static--use Static Guard), skims the body and the full legs are attractive and comfortable to wear. Great travel pieces for comfort and ease of packing. These will be go to pants in my wardrobe, thanks Louis for your designs.
THIN, SHEER FABRIC
I believe these pants run a bit LARGE and the fabric is quite thin, you can see the light through the fabric. I am trying to find a great fitting knit pant that is not too voluminous (not sure of that spelling).......wish Isacc Mizrahi still sold his 'Exposed Elastic' pants, even though they are lightweight, they FIT SO WELL WITHOUT TOO MUCH EXCESS FABRIC - and EVERYONE ASKS ME "HAVE YOU LOST WEIGHT" when I wear them! I would buy a closet full if they were still available!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SO, SO DISAPPOINTED
I wait listed my order for the medium in olive and was thrilled to finally receive it; HOWEVER, the pants are way too big for me. I realize they are suppose to be full and flowing and I love that about them, but mine are most definitely too big. And, as I would expect, there are no smalls in any color. This is really a double whammy for me because I just ordered the peasant top in Olive and have several of the other pieces as well. I really do NEED these pants. Please bring in some more!! I normally wear medium in Louis' line, so that was the reason I only gave 4 stars - sizing was off. I'll keep trying though as Louis' clothes are the epitome of quality.
Thin, slippery knit...
...NOT what I need to go over this ripply old body of mine!! Please, Louis, not everyone likes knit pants. I have also ordered the cardigan to go with....but I'm sending the pants back, untried, because I know exactly how they'll look and how they'll feel. Can't someone make a pair of pants like the favorite D&C elastic waist pants but in a nicer, dressier fabric. Or a really nice cotton that breathes for warmer climes????
Just something that doesn't ripple and flow.....
1) I purchased one in every color at the time of airing. I knew they were not petite, but because they were described as " straight leg" I expected to be able to have them hemmed. As it turns out, the hem is ever so slightly tapered and a straight hem (3-4 inches would have to be removed) would give them an awkardly cut off look.
2) The material appeares to cling depending on the type of fabric you were sitting on. This is based on the way it clung to the plastic bag in which they were packaged. I do prefer natural fabric or at least a good blend, but that seems to be more and more difficult to find.
I had to rate them one star because I obviously wanted them and had to return them for the reasons stated above. I am sooooo disappointed because Louis is my favorite designer and I eagerly look forward to his presentations. Such timeless looks and clean lines with just enough modern touch.
Excellent fit and drape.
These pants are awesome! Please, Louis bring more in. I have the expresso in medium and am on the waitlist for olive and navy.
