Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Petite Wide Leg Pull-on Pants
These multi-functional pants can be worn for both work and play slimming a curvy pear-shaped figure and elongating the legs on a shorter frame.
These pants are not up to Louis' standards. At 5'4" I'm at the top of the petite height scale and these dragged on the floor in bare feet. They were still long when I tried them with heels. The fabric feels flimsy and cheap, so I wasn't inclined to spend more money to have them hemmed. I was hoping to take them on a cruise, but they looked so cheaply made I returned them. I've bought a number of Louis Dell'Olio items in the past and this is the first time I've had an issue with the quality of the garment. I hope this is just a fluke!
Lightweight; Perfect for Summer Occasions!
Purchased the Petite Small black color based on the 'click here' measurements and they fit well through the hips and waist without being tight or with VPL showing. The length is perfect for my 5'2" height and I plan on wearing it with the black kimono and black matching tank or the tan colored tank. The fabric is lightweight and perfect for summer for indoor air conditioning or strolling around town. Thanks for a great pair of pants in Petite sizing.
I can wear LINEA PANTS~
What a dream come true!
I was encouraged to order these pants by Mr.Dell"Olio in a Petite Medium .. I knew that a normal Medium would be too short.
Since the pant could be worn ankle length I was going to shorten a regular pair but Louis suggested trying a Petite.
It worked like a charm! I am now the proud owner of two pairs of these wonderful pants. I wore the black today and they were so comfortable and great looking.
I don't imagine this will work for every pant but since these are a straight leg pant , shorter works for me.
Thank you for the suggestion of ordering a Petite. Louis, I would not have thought of this on my own.
The fit is great.. and the look is effortless. I know these pants will be a great part of my wardrobe.
Now if only Linea made TALLS~~
Surprised to find pockets
Very disappointed in the length and the sizing as they ran very large and
I was careful to read measurements before I ordered . I have finally gotten in on petites and can not keep them so back they go and will not try again tho I love Louis' clothes(tops and jackets). I have had way too many returns of his pants!
Light and Airy
I ordered both colors in my normal Linea size and liked them so well that I am on waitlist for duplicates. When I heard the fabric was the same as Louis' safari shirt A213216, I knew that I would love them. The matching tanks and pants work equally well with the safari shirt as they do with the Kimono. I normally prefer slim leg pants, but these flow beautifully and will be much cooler for hot weather.
Fabric used very thin
I really think I was sent the wrong pants,description state 10 % spandex,the material should have a small amount of stretch.I like polyester but not like this fabric,honest to goodness,it feels like materials used for making umbrellas.I gave it 3 stars for the fit.It fit very well,but I cannot justify paying this much for this kind of material.Going back tomorrow.
Fabric too thin, petite too long
I had been looking forward to ordering a "designer" item, unfortunately the fabric was much too thin for a bottom weight. As a petite I would have had to hem them as well. It just wasn't worth the price. Sand was a nice color, though.
First Time Let-down
I just didn't like the fabric, it felt & looked like an inexpensive poly, the fit wasn't what I was expecting either. I usually have 5 star rating on all Linea clothing but not this set.
Perfect for summer, and pockets, too!
These really are a nice fit and a nice material for summer. I like the light weight feel, and the pockets are a great addition.
The only thing that was ok was the pretty sand color.
They were way too long for petite and very baggie.
Fabric was so light wgt, not sure what it will do in humid weather. Have to send them back.
While I like the 29" inseam, I don't care for the fabric.
Also don't like that the sand in medium is bigger and baggier than the black in the same size.
Very disappointed overall.
