I like the slouchyness, the pockets and the comfortable waistband. Does anyone know of a pattern for these?

Hot Patterns has a similar pattern but with a front zipper which you can move to the back:

Can you post a photo? Both of your links are just redirecting me to their UK site's front page.

I'm an Eileen Fisher fan, when it is drastically reduced

This is not what you asked for, but Loes Hinse is as close as I have come to the overall look and fit of my favorite Eileen Fisher clothing.

Loes Hinse Design

For what you are looking at, Issey has the same beginning shape in these pants, only tighter.

Issey Miyake

Once you added in the extra ease of the E Fisher pants, there should be plenty of room for the E Fisher style waistband to pull up over your hips and give a similar look.

Interestingly, though I find the Eileen Fisher style very appealing, Loes Hinse Design really doesn't do it for me. To me E Fisher is sleeker and can be quite modern. I think a lot of thought goes into the proportions in her looks. Thanks for suggesting the Miyake pattern. I can see what you're saying about the way the top fits. It would require a number of adjustments to get the fit (+ add the pockets) of the Eileen Fisher pants, but should be doable. Since you are familiar with her clothes, do you think there is a wide elastic inside that waistband?

There aren't any pants patterns that are for pants exactly like those.

The Eileen Fisher pants have to be made with very stretchy knit fabric--since there is no zipper & no gathered waist with elastic in a casing, the fabric has to be very stretchy so that something smooth at the waist can stretch to get over biiiiiig hips. :)

Most knit pant patterns do not have pockets, because you can see exactly what is in the pockets in knit fabric. If you put a keyring with 5 keys in pockets in knit pants or skirts, there is a ginormous, unattractive bulge.

That said, I have found a few patterns that have details similar to the Eileen Fisher pants. The first I am hoping to make sometime soon is McCall's 6440--it is a stretch knit pant with wide flat waistband & a zippered inseam pocket set into the waistband seam. I think you could omit the zipper in the pockets, if you don't like that.

Another one is McCall's 6405--it is for stretch wovens, so it needs a zipper--a front fly zipper. View C does have slant front pockets like the Eileen Fisher pants. If you sew the pants out of a very stretchy knit, you could easily omit the fly front--just sew a seam where the zipper should go & sew the waistband together without any hook & eye closing. KwikSew 3450 is nearly identical to this pattern, but it states you can use knit fabrics along with stretch wovens--still has the front fly, though.

KwikSew 3454 is a knit pant with a flat-looking elastic casing waistline. It has angled zipper pockets.

KwikSew 3393 is a unique knit pant with seams down the center front of the legs & no side seams. There are a zippered pockets set into the center front seams. It has a wide yoked waistband with a drawstring.

I am nearly positive that Burda Style magazine has not had a yoked waistband knit pant pattern in the last 3 years. They have had plus-size knit pants with elastic casing waists (and maybe regular-size too). All of the rest of the pants have had zippers that I remember. I just thoroughly looked through ALL of my Burda magazines looking for patterns to add to my sewing plan, & I don't remember seeing any pants like this--if there had been, they would have been added to my sewing plan. :)

Burda envelope patterns don't have any knit pants that have pockets. All of the pants without zippers have elastic casing waistbands.

Another option would be Collette Patterns Clover pants here, but they do have a side invisible zipper since they aren't for knits--just stretch wovens. I just added this pattern to my wishlist. Beautiful & fun pockets!!!

I don't know if any other independent pattern companies have any knit pants like this--no elastic casing, no zipper, but does have pockets. I can't think of any right now. Can anyone else think of any?

Please don't be scared of invisible zippers. They are really easy, I promise! There are lots & lots of tutorials out there with lots of pictures.

Style Arc seems to have similar patterns. I'm sorry that I'm too lazy/tired to look right now but check out their website.

Great suggestions Christina,

I pulled out the magnifying class to check things out relative to what I've seen in the store. What do you think, McCall's 6405 for being that careful mix of fitted but not tight or snug in the waist hip area with the slim leg that fits close but does not become a legging.
M6405

It is definitely a contoured waist. The Eileen Fisher pant looks like it may have small darts in the back. I've done that on knit pants to help keep the waist sleeker. Looking at the beige version again, I can see that adding the small darts would smooth out that back upper hip area.

And it looks like the Eileen Fisher pants may ride just a bit lower in the waist than the pattern.

Anyway, I think you picked a winner.

Peaudane, depending upon your size, an invisible side zipper could be very tempting. Regardless, if you do not use a zipper, test the fabric, elastic, seam combination you have in mind to be sure that it will have enough stretch to pull on and off. And, the Eileen Fisher description does refer to it as being a contoured waist with elastic.

Boy, when you call for help on PR, it is the troops to the rescue, isn't it. Lots of excellent suggestions to choose from.
