Liz Claiborne New York Jackie Denim Trouser Pants
Bought these as a lunchtime special. I've washed them 3-4 times and haven't had problems with shrinkage, I knew the zipper was cheap but decided to keep them because they are comfortable but sadly the zipper broke while I was at work. Fortunately I had a long enough top to cover it up. Too late to send back so I will be paying for a new zipper,
NOT A GOOD FIT
Ordered two pair thinking since they are by Liz Claiborne they would fit well, not the case. They run large and I did not like the fit in the leg returned both pair.
I like this style of denim trouser and have owned these for a few months now.
The fabric is high quality and the construction is solid. I like the way the leg sways when I walk. These feel like classy jeans, which is why I comfortably wear them to the office on Fridays.
Here are my complaints:
The tab closure is NOT sewn in, but instead has sharp teeth that are supposed to hold it into the fabric. The thing NEVER stays closed, even though these pants fit me fine (they are not too tight). Eventually the closure just popped off and there's no place for a button there so I'm going to have to take these to a tailor to have a new tab closure sewn in properly.
Also, these did not come in petite so I already had to have them altered.
So, having to alter a pair of affordable denim trousers twice makes them ultimately expensive and so I'm not sure they were worth it.
My other minor complaint is that the rise on these things is pretty long. So unlike modern construction pants where the rise is sort of at the waist or below, this is definitely above the waist. Which might not be for everyone.
All that said, I wear these often, largely because I like the fabric and the leg style. I wish they would have gotten the rest right, however ... :(
I love these jeans.I ordered the dark rinse.The fit is great I even look shapely.I'm considering ordering another pair.I. love see them in dark grey.Oh yea I turned my hem to make a cuff and received several compliments. I LOVE wearing dove grey with them.
Do Not Buy
These pants have too boxy a fit. They get looser and looser as the day goes by to the point that they are falling off of me, literally, by the end of the day!
Last Liz Claiborne purchase at QVC for me. It is just too much hit or miss on sizing and quality.
I LOVE THESE PANTS
Great fit!!! Theses pants fit as if they were custom made for me.
Will be back for other colors. Please make them in black.
Love the style. Not just another jean
I can wear either 14 or 16. I chose 14 but am exchanging for a 16. I am really looking forward to getting the right size. I like the straight leg and the trouser look.
Well made but spendy!
These are nice pants. A bit on the heavy side for summer wear. They did grow on me throughout the day. For myself I don't think I would size down. I am 5' 9" and they will be nice with a little higher heel in the fall/winter. Like I said they are well made pants, I got the darker denim and they look very dressy. All in all I am pleased and will keep them.
I've been looking for the right fitting white jeans for the last two months. I love the weight of these jeans, the fabric, and the length. My cellulite does not show through in these pants which is a huge concern for me. However, the pants hit about two inches above my belly button causing me to have to roll the pants down. Maybe if I was taller, they would be a perfect fit. I'm 5'4". I'm keeping them because they look really nice with the waist hidden.
Perfect Trouser Pants!
I have been searching for the perfect denim trousers, but now my search is over. These are just perfect, fits true to size, and it can be dressed up or dressed down. I purchased the dark denim, and will purchase the other colors. Thanks QVC, and Liz Clairborne.
I loved them!
Nice summer weight and usual, great LC fit. I wasn't about to repair the 1-2 inch slash in the material near the zipper, which did not happen during shipping, and now size 6 is gone in white. It breaks my heart to return them. Sometimes, it really is better to have never loved at all.
On the Fence
I ordered these in dark indigo and white. Got the white one size larger because I like the way white fits better when a little roomier in the leg. Had to hem both and take inthe waist (normal for me because I am smaller in the waist). Not entirely sure I love the fabric...I prefer a more traditional denim. I hope these don't "grow" on me as I wear them....the fabric looks like it might. Nevertheless, I did keep them because they are the style I wanted and I am hard to fit.
