When I saw these Everlane GoWeave Easy Pants I immediately thought of my favorite Grana silk ankle pants (reviewed here) since they both have that easy silhouette and that ever-expanding elastic waistband perfect for the buffet line. I decided to order a pair in what's quickly becoming my go to color of this season, navy (get ready for lots and lots of navy folks).
First a note on sizing: I ordered a size 4, which is the smaller of my two usual sizes (I'm usually between a 4 and 6 on the bottom). And the 4 fit perfectly. The pants fit just right at the hips and waist with some room to spare. So these definitely run a tad large. Of course the pants were a tad long for my short legs (I'm 5'4" but my legs are more like that of a person who's 5'1"). What do you think?
I don't think it looks bad at all. And if I worked at an office I would most likely have kept the pants and worn them often. But since I work in a garage, the most practical pair of pants for me are jeans (especially since these easy pants are dry clean only, which is not so easy IMHO). Also these pants are 100% wool so they'd be better suited for those AC-blasting offices.
I have to say, of all the various GoWeave trousers I've tried from Everlane (like this one and this one), these are the clear winner. Also I only just recently noticed but there's a big difference between Everlane's Japanese GoWeave (made from triacetate) and their Italian GoWeave (made from 100% wool). Also the Japanese GoWeave should be hand-washed and not dry cleaned while the Italian versions are dry clean only. Oh and just to note, if you're sensitive about itchiness from 100% wool items, then these might not be for you since there is a very slight itch to these pants.
Overall I'm really loving this head-to-toe Everlane office look, and I think Everlane is really stepping up their design game (quite possibly because of the former Creative Director for COS, Erica Bay who unfortunately left the company in February of this year. But that's more than enough time for her to have put some good designs into the works for Everlane).
Anyway if you're an office worker looking for something easy (but don't mind dry-cleaning), then these pants might be for you!
