Bob Mackie's Stretch Ponte Knit Crop Pants
Well, the fabric was of good quality, however the waistband was a bit strange. I'm a seamstress and it looked like the waistband was not finished. I did not care for that type of wasitband and they run large. At least they were too roomy for me. I have sent them back and I might try another type in the future.
I've had these pants for quite a while in black. Yesterday I wore them t o church and shopping. They are just so comfortable and stay looking nice all day. I ordered t hem in large and sent back for the medium. They are quite stretchy and I was afraid they would be too big as I wore them. I love them and they are so cute with the buttons on the bottom. They are dressy....not for cleaning and yard work. The fabric is substantial and would be great for fall as well. The waistband is a mystery but doesn't bother me. It is tacked down in 4 places. You can leave as is or snip it free. I think this was Bob's way of providing a choice of 2 different inseams. If I released the tacking down of the waist, the crotch of the pants would be way to long for me.
Run huge, cheap material
Have enjoyed Bob Mackie's items before and ordered the charcoal in a large to wear on a recent trip. They arrived in time but they are HUGE. Fit bigger than sweat pants and the material is light and flimsy. Like other reviewers I don't like the waistband's 4 tacks to try and make a Hollywood waist on these pants. There was nothing about them that made me want to reorder another size. Proportions all wrong and dubious quality material. Very expensive for the quality of the product. I wouldn't put my celebrity name on these, Bob. Very disappointing.
Just got these crop pants in the light gray today, and they are absolutely amazing!!! Love the fabrication, the style is right on, and they look like they cost SOOO much more money!!! This is my first purchase of a Bob Mackie design, but I guarantee it won't be my last!!! Thank you, Mr. Mackie!!
I ordered these these in black and white. Love the material BUT they run VERY large. I am sending them back and ordering a size smaller but wondering if maybe I should be ordering them two sizes smaller!
I ordered these pants in black and white. While I agree with the other reviewers about the waist band I liked the style with the buttons and material. I will buy more.
NOT SO QUALITY
I guess the ponte knit is ok, but the waist elastic is bnt sewed down, This bothers me. I don't know if there is a purpose or not.
Nice, dressy summer pants
I received these crop pants in navy, and love them! The fabric is really nice and washes well. I always love a Hollywood waist, and for me, at 5'5", the length is perfect. Love them so much that I just ordered another pair! Thanks, Bob!
Received and wore this week, going to order more. Can be casual or dressed up, love the fit.
I love the soft fabric and beautiful light shade of grey that is so difficult to find. However, my usual size is Medium (or 10), I am 5'4" and these pants are cut so generously that they are too long, too wide and not flattering on me.
Please, please redo your sizing and offer that dove grey again.
Immediately returned because the waistband stitching was caught in four or five places. Unwearable. What happened to quality controls check on these pants?
Trust Me!? Read my Lips!
Oh Bob! NOT up to the usual quality here! Sending them right back today.
Horrible waistband to fight with many times a day, way to big & baggy, & material to thin & shows lines, came in a wrinkled mess in that plastic bag, & besides that can't even put them in the washing machine on gentle cycle? What were you thinking here? For $50.- gotta get way more than this. Please a poly/cotton blend you can throw in the wash, that fits nice. Thanks!?
