Usual Vince Quality
I've had this pant in the beige/khaki for a couple years and still happy with it, glad to add a navy pair. Hard to find a trouser cut to be slim all the way down without being too tight in certain places.. these are the good ones: no wedgie, no baggy knees,no weird inner thigh bulges, room for lunch in the belly when you sit. I'm usually a 2 or 26/27 and wear these in a 2. Nice lightweight, semi-stretchy fabric which still feels natural and breathable in warmer weather. My only peeve is the use of the whole silly 'boyfriend' pant marketing gimmick in the name. In 2014 as a grown woman I would like to be able to purchase pants in whatever length, shape or cut I please; without engaging in some kind of nonsensical marketing meta-commentary on the sartorial legacy of patriarchy on third wave millennial hetero-normative sexuality.. or whatever it is calling women's pants 'boyfriend trousers' is supposed to be. Please Vince, love your clothes but they're slim-cut trousers. Call them that.

cute summer staple
Overall really happy with this shirt. Good cut, nice substantial chambray fabric. Fits according to Alice & Olivia typical sizing, i.e. xs works perfectly for a standard 2/4. When I try to tie up the bottom it rides a little higher than it looks on the model i.e. more belly showing than I would like, but that may be my lack of knot tying skills. Still something to think about depending on what you're planning to wear it with.

not perfect
I have relatively small skinny hands.. the thumbs on these are tight, leaving skin exposed at the foldover. Fingers also tight meaning wearing any kind of slightly elevated, let alone bulky ring underneath is a problem. Then the pop-tops are about an inch longer than my fingers. The knit is relatively thin and not the softest ever. Given all that, for the price for 100% cashmere, probably still going to keep them just to have an extra pair around for the next time my regulars rip open.
