Cute!
These shorts are basically as expected. First time to try J Brand, so wasn't sure on size, but went with 31 thinking they might run slightly smaller than usual, and the size is just right. Fabric is cool - a high quality Japanese twill - and the colour is interestingly uneven on the pocket flaps. Beautiful and unusual seams in front and back make for a good fit with sleek lines. Well over the knee for me, but also can be rolled up for an above the knee length. Think I'll wear them often in the summer. Thinking about wearing them now with tights, but have yet to do so.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Wanted to love these but too baggy?
Still not sure about these cargo pants. Great colour, nice cut, interesting ties at the ankles allow for a variety of looks, but they are rather large. I usually wear a 30 or 31 in True Religion jeans, so ordered this style in 31. They are quite large overall, but I do really like them. Am debating: return; order a 29 or 30; wash the size 31 in hot water and then dry on a hot setting. The laundry option would probably make them noticeably shorter, but won't necessarily help with the excess width. May still be too baggy. Still haven't decided. Nice variation in the TR lineup and a good pair of cargoes, but the sizing is tricky.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Fit is not for those with curves
Really like Vince and have a few pairs of Vince trousers and jeans, but as much as I wanted these to fit, they just don't. Bought my regular Vince size, but this cut just doesn't work for me. Bought a size 10, which is what i always wear in Vince trousers, but these short trousers are too tight around the hips and too big at the waist -- better for a woman less curvy, I think. Fabric is good, style is good, coulour is good, but the cut is better for a straighter figure than mine.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Wearing them again and again!
Bought these cargo pants in olive on sale in SF in December and loved them, so when I saw them on sale here, decided to get both black and grey. Have been wearing the black almost daily. the grey is slightly lighter in colour than I had imagined, which makes them feel more casual and bulky-looking to me, but I still really like them and wore them yesterday with other shades of grey plus a top with brighter colours and a black cashmere cardigan. The fabric is super soft, comfortable, warm and easy to launder. I knew my size since I already had a pair, but I would suggest to others they buy a size or two larger than their regular size.. I wear a range of sizes depending on the cut and brand (from 29 to 31), but take a 32 in this item. There are fabric strips on both sides of the waist that allow the waist to be tightened. I wear a belt with these trousers or else they do tend to migrate down.
