I'm still trying to get the size right on the sailor pants, but I also ordered some army pants. These olive beauties are high-waisted + soft + worn-in. I feel like I've found my new uniform. I don't love selfies, so you'll have to take my word for it...but, these pants are great with tank tops, box tops, tees, tucked-in blouses...and, I imagine, sweatshirts too. They work as well with sandals as with boots. Almost everything I buy needs a little tweak to reach my perception of perfection...so I cropped these just a bit. (The excess fabric can become perfectly matched patches down the line.)
As mentioned yesterday, I'm still attracted to the idea of sewing some pants. The Strides + Flint are at the top of my list...but for the moment, I'm very happy with these new old widish-legged pants!
