    comfy and cute
    i love paper bag trousers and these are no exception. great color, great fit and very comfortable. i like to wear them cuffed and they look really cute with a thin belt and a tshirt tucked in. they are quite flattering too, cute a little more slimly so you don't get that pouchy diaper look. a more comfortable and stylish alternative to jeans.

    60's flair on modern workplace
    love these. excellent color - it's a warm, reddish brown. the fit is a bit looser in the legs than i expected (the pants seem pretty tight on the model). i have a 27 in. waist and 37.5 in. hips and the size 6 was perfect. the pleats in the front make the pants a little baggy in the crotch area, but it's not that noticeable on me. the pants are secured around the waist with fairly stretchy elastic that helps them stay up and looking neat. these pants look best with a belt because the paper bag detailing tends to droop down if not secured properly.

    Madewell as expected
    Comfortable and wonderfully made. Very easy to wear however this cut would suit more the uber petite or tall and slim. I expected the fabric to be a little lighter however I appreciate it's durability and like the fact that it's not too heavy. Regardless, they are a pair of pants that you can slip on and forget about.

    perfect summer casual trouser
    these are great trousers. they are lightweight and very comfortable. they fit true to size, but are not as high-waisted as the picture indicates. super cute - they are coming with me to europe this summer.

    Great Work Pants
    Often times I felt that paperbag trousers engulfed my frame (Im 5'3) but these pants were just right. I didnt feel like I was wearing a potato sack AT ALL!!! They are comfortable but fit just right. Whats also great about these is the material of the pants will allow for wear from spring until fall.

    Burnt Sienna
    The color of these pants is amazing. Perfect for the color blocking trend. It is slightly roomier than I thought, but that makes them really comfy. Maybe If they were tighter they would not really provide the same look. Worn with a belt should fix the problem. The lenght is perfect though. Try rolling them up, that works nicely too.

    Maybe I shouldn't get paper bag pants
    Start with the good: the fabric is soft and smooth, the colour is easy going and differentiates from the usual black, the length is not bad, considering I'm only 155cm tall, I only had to cuff it once (size 0). However, the paper bag part is too loose. I'd have to wear a belt and tuck my shirt in. But I don't like how I look with shirt tucked in, so maybe paper bag pants are just not for me. Overall, it's a well-made pair, at sale price, I'm happy to add some variation to my wardrobe.

    Magic Pants
    I usually wear a 27/28 or 4/6 in most pants (thick middle, straight hips), and got these in a 6 for the gray color since the 4 had sold out. They fit as expected for a 6 in pants for me- a tad large, but at least not too tough a fix for a tailor. These pants manage to be simultaneously comfy and room yet slimming , and flattering in the rear as well(hence the title of the review). The gray color seems to have a tinge of green, so not as a flat neutral as a slate gray. Since the pants are a soft (but not sloppy) cotton twill, they are not quite suitable for a formal work setting, but definintely for a business casual environment.

    Madewell Trousers
    The size 0 was bigger than expected, but with a belt they look great, in heels or in flats. The colour is great too! Love them!
