There was little to no fanfare when Everlane released these pants (it wasn’t even on their coming soon page), so it might have slipped under the radar for some. But being the Everlane addict that I am, I check their new releases page every once in awhile and I noticed these linen pants. Since I’m always on the lookout for good linen pants, I thought I might give these a try with some credit I had earned (thanks to everyone who clicked my referral link). And well, I’m glad I did try them because I really love ‘em!
First a note on sizing: I’m usually a size 4 on top and 6 on the bottom for Everlane. But lately due to body changes because of pregnancy and then giving birth, I’m a bit all over the place when it comes to sizing (like I tried Everlane’ straight leg crop in my usual size 6 and it didn’t fit). But I got these in a size 6 and found that it did fit, mostly because of a really forgiving elastic and drawstring waistband.
As you can see the pants hit right at the top of my foot, which is the perfect length for me (I’m 5’4”). On the models on the Everlane site these pants are cropped and hit above the ankle. I don’t mind the full length on me since this is a straight fit.
I love these pants because even though they feel like PJs with the elastic and drawstring waistband, they look pretty polished. They’re just wide enough at the hips and legs, so there’s no pulling, but not so wide that it makes me look short. The linen quality is lightweight, but in a pair of black pants that’s perfect since it’s nice and breezy. You can see how Everlane linen stacks up against other (mostly slow) brands I’ve tried here.
Sorry it took so long to get this review up, so there aren’t that many sizes left in black. The blue indigo color might work for some (probably best paired with white or another light color on top), but I would probably stay away from the white. If it’s anything like my other linen shirt made in the Shenzhen factory, it’s going to be slightly sheer.
Anyway, anyone else try Everlane’s linen pants?
