Slouchy? No Stop you dead in your tracks? Yes. Great review. I like the way the slanted belt loops play off the flaired leg angle. These slacks are really versatile, dressed down or dressed up. This is really the look alot of women are going for in Boston this fall. Very stylish. The front finish work really shows off your hard work. Nice!

Like a picture from Elle. Stunningly superb. As on Project Runway... you made them look EXPENSIVE.

I agree! You look amazing in your pants with their "slouchy flair" and I want a pair exactly like them. I too look forward to that front fly zipper tutorial when you have a chance to post it. Oh, and the inseam pocket was a great idea.

I love your pants -- perfect as always!! and I'd love to see your zipper tutorial. I especially have problems with the bottom of the zipper with a full fly.

Well done and plaid is a classic for fall and winter.

I am always looking for tutorials on the fly front zip to help me get over my phobia, so I'd love to see it. The pants are great!

Can't wait for yet another way of inserting a fly front zipper. Please post it as a tip on this site
