Since these Elizabeth Suzann Tilda linen pants were one of the 6 items I used in my Spring 10x10 challenge, they got used quite a bit and in all kinds of ways. Up top you can see I tried rolling them up, and I also tried them under dresses (pic below). These are my first ever linen pants, and my second item from Elizabeth Suzann (the first one was the Georgia Tee, reviewed here).
To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of how wide the pants are in the hips and the general bagginess in the butt. I know that's how they're supposed to look, but after decades in fitted jeans, it's hard to get used to the ballooning butt look, lol. I'm wearing a medium short here, and I feel like I probably could have gone with the small (for reference I'm 5'4'' and usually wear a size 4-6, or about a 27-28 in jeans).
I'm also not liking the fact that these pants don't have pockets. It makes my daily life a bit more difficult when I don't have a pocket to stuff my keys or phone in (though by wearing the Grana silk sleeveless blazer, it gave me pockets for the day). But I did like that the ankles flared a bit, and the pants look especially cute when layered under a dress or a similarly long tunic. Basically, I like the pants best when I hide the butt and hips area.
Also the linen fabric is thick and a tad on the scratchier side. But they feel heavier and more substantial than the linen from both Grana and Everlane. Plus the black linen is fully opaque.
So for now I'm still a bit undecided about these pants, though I'm leaning towards letting them go. What do you think?
