Dennis Basso Ponte Knit Boot Cut Pants with Tuck Detail
Comfortable & Tailored
Oh these pants are sooooooo comfortable. They don't pinch the waste and the material is high quality! I'm 5'5'' so I may have to hem them. They almost touched the floor with medium heels. I don't purchase petit the rise is always too short for me.
I'm going back for the black pair.
I bought these pants on clearance and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of material, the beautiful rich deep charcoal color, and the way they move with me and don't pinch at the waist. Thanks, Dennis, for these feminine and comfortable pants!
I bought the first pair and really liked them . Ordered a second and had to return b/c they were HUGE!! Then the orignal pair started to pill...now they look awful..Wasted alot of time and money!
loved, loved, loved
totally loved these pants. probably the most comfortable pants i received in a very long time. they are very easy wearing and look great. got them the day of xmas party and received so many praises. as per usual when asked where i got them, it was my usual response-qvc. the fit is perfect and i ordered a pair for my friend who is a nurse. also thank you mr basso for the pockets. don't understand why more manufacturers don't realize we want pockets. fit is true to size. if you have long legs these pants will not disappoint you. will not hesitate to try basso pants again.
Great and Comfortable
These are GREAT pants, I am 5'7" and standing bare foot they are just above the ground. Soft and comfortable, love the waist band with a little elastic so there is no gapping in the back! I also love the wide leg. I will be ordering the grey!
GREAT EXCEPT A POCKET ISSUE
I loved these pants when Ifirst got them in black. Then I ordered them in the grey and noticed a pocket was missing! At first I assumed it was a defectin the pant. But, after staring at them I realized somebody "cut" out the pocket! I was wondering why one would do sucha thing...then I looke din the mirror closely and noticed the entire lining of the pocket was pusing through and looking buly on the side which did have a pocket. I was going to do an exchange for a new pair of the charcoal color but I decided not to do so when I saw the pocket sticking out. I tried on my black pair which I already love and have worn a few times in order to see if the pocket was pushing through the pant from underneath like ti was int he charcoal/grey color. IT WAS THE WHOLE TIME AND I NEVER NOTICED SICNE WITH BLACK YOU CANLT SEE IT THE ISSUE AS WELL. IN THE LIGHTER PANT (CHARCOAL/GREY) IT UNFROTUNATELY SHOWED UP MORE S. I just never noticed it in the black pair prior to the grey pair having the issue. I guess when you are using a ponte knit, the material enables the pocket to show through. I wish there were not any pockets to begin with..but oh well. I bought a 2nd pair in the black vs trying for another charcoal/grey since the pocket shows through more so on the lighter color (charcoal). Otherwise, these are womderful pants!! i now own two pair of black an I love them. I havent needed to wash them yet. I hope they dfo not pilll or shrink. I doubt it. Note.....if you buy a size which si tooo fitted for your body, the pocket lining and the pcoket will most likely show through in the front like it wants to push through. But if they are looser on you, there is a less likely chance the pcoket will pierce through badly. I can;t believe somebody would cut out a pocket...thee was a hole loft. I would recommend a seamstress if you are that desparate to get rid of the pockets. They do show through. I didn;t mind so much so I got a 2nd pair inthe black where the pocket is LESS noticable. I would hve liked to have them in the grey as well, but as I mentioned the pocket is more apparent in the lighter color. If it weren;t for the mossing pocket, I may have never notoiced the pocket piercing through...but now I do. There are worse things. Still think the pants are so nie and you can;t beat the proce so that out-weighs the pockets pierding through to the front issue. I recommend these if you don;t buy them very fitted. I have room in my pair, fortunatey, but I can only imagine how they would look if htyey wete tighter......the pocket issue would be worse.I love Dennis Basso!! He is a phenomenal designer.
did not like...
I thought these pants fit me terribly. They were too high and bulky in the waist area. Also, too long. Didn't look good at ALL. Back they go.
Wanted to like these after all of the reviews. The material is great and they appear to be well made. However, that said, I am above average height and these were about 2 - 3 inches too long. Did not want to pay for alterations, so back they go.
These pants are soooo comfortable. I tried them on and was so impressed with the way the fit and looked. I could wear them all day long and into the night, they feel that good. I'm going to get a couple more pair. Very nice. They are a bit long for me, I'll have to take them in and taken up, but other than that, I love them.
a little on the big side
size down on these. I'm size 14 so I ordered a large way too big, sending backing for a med.
Well done Dennis! I love these pants! They fit so well and make me look terrific!
I recently lost a lot of weight and have been between sizes. And a little self-conscios of knits, which I've never really worn. Well, I can tell you that I love Dennis Basso. And I LOVE these slacks. The knit is fantastic quality. The pintuck detail just elongates your leg. And the sizing was right on the money. If these came in Navy Blue, I would have ordered an additional pair. Don't be afraid to order tue to size. I'm a 16 fighting my way down to a 14 and the Large was perfect. I was really worried about how they would fit / look -- unnecessary worrying. Dennis, thank you thank you thank you. You know what you're doing and I'm a fan for life!!!!
