Susan Graver Essentials Lustra Knit Regular Skinny Pants
This is my second pair of Susan Graver Skinny pants. I own them in black and have enjoyed them for months. They wash up great and are light weight enough for Florida weather.
I recently ordered them in the teal color hoping to wear them with another of Susan's designs (tank, eternity scarf, and cardigan). But the colors were not a match as they appeared online. Theses are more of a dark green. But I kept them as colored bottoms are a big hit in Florida.
The only negative things I can say are, colors did not work back to other items with a same color name, and these are long in the stride. Petite were good in the stride but way to short for me, so they had to go back. All in all these are a good purchase and I would recommend them. The narrow (but not snug) legs are flattering.
I have been buying regular size M, have several, but they are too long and they catch on the back of my heal. I would like the regular to be a little shorter, even one inch would help. I recently bought a PL thinking that they would be long enough, but again the length is 27 inches and maybe 28-29 could work better for me. I got L thinking that the extra size would make them longer. If Susan reads these comments please make the Petites a little longer or Regular a little shorter - I am 5'3" Thanks.
Nice But Not Skinny
I like the fit and the texture of these pants, but they don't strike me as being skinny pants. They run a bit on the big side, so if you like a snug fit, you should go down a size.

With a clingy fabric I would typically order up a size so as to not be showing every ripple. After reading the reviews, and the problems with extra length in the crotch, I decided to stay with my normal size. This worked out great. They are not a tight skinny pant by any means. I was looking for dressier pants that didn't have a baggy pajama feel to them. These fit the bill. I can dress these up for a special affair, or wear them with a nice sweater for the holidays. Would love to see them in more colors, especially black and navy. Would also like to see some tops and/or jackets to match.
rise way too long
The rise in the regular is way too long. I am 5'7" with a 30 inch inseam. in order to have it be in the the right place, I have to pull the pants up about four inches above my waist. if I wear them at my waist the rise is too long and the pants length is too long. I thought I might try petite to get a better rise fit but with a 27 inch inseam, they would be way too short. love the pants fabric and they do look professional and smart for work.. may have to roll the waist band to be able to wear them at my waist. if this doesn't work, I will be so disappointed as it is so hard to find pants that are work appropriate, also, I wore these with an outside temperature of 101 yesterday and they were not too hot. certainly fine for air conditioned buildings.
I bought these pants in the xs...and they fit well. The waist band was in the right spot. However, I got the regular, 30" length, and to me they longer than the 30". They will have to be hemmed. They are very comfortable on. I carry my weight in the lower part of my body...and these made my legs look much slimmer than they are.

Seriously, I wore these today and ordered another pair. They were so comfortable.
Wear an xs, am about a sz. 6.
Length is perfect, fit is perfect, and I look and feel slimmer in these pants!
For the cooler months more Ponte knit .Looks fresher more up to date.
I DO look skinny (and I'm not) !
Love these pants ! Polished & contemporary. PLEASE bring these to us in navy, Susan.
I just received two pairs of these pants today. I purchased the brown and the black. They fit well and are nice pants, but I haven't decided if I like the material or not which is the reason for only 4 stars. It is a little heavy and I don't care for the ribbing. I like the smoother material like liquid knit much better. These pants will be nice for the fall and winter, but much too hot for the spring and summer.
More black and winter colors please
This is my first Susan Graver purchase and I love this fabric! More Black PLEASE! Looks like all black sold out!! Would love to have these in charcoal gray, deep navy, AND MORE BLACK.
Love, love love
I originally ordered the pants in black to try them. Loved the feel and fit. Going to order in brown now and would love Susan to come out with a deep navy in this product.
