Will be going places with these pantsI saw a similar if not same pant last year and liked the colour but the store only had small and up. To my delight I saw a 2019 version, and on somewhat of a sale recently. Not quite as cheap as before but I figure if they fit, last and I get lots of wear, it’ll be worth the $. I just received them today. For reference I am 5’5” and 125lbs, usually a Roots XS in pant and XS/S top. This XS fits well enough, with a drawstring and belt loop in case I need to cinch up. I like having both options. I usually need a belt but don’t always want to go to the trouble putting one on just to take the dog out. Now I can slip these pants on and not always be in jogging pants. NICE deep pockets. I love it - room for hands and miscellany. Yes! Back pockets are real too but with the hidden button kinda hard to open. Easier to close but fiddling with butt buttons still looks odd.
Neat little maple leaf embroidery too in the green, instead of a Roots logo, that’s a bonus. The green is an easy colour to match as well. Length-wise, legs are not cropped but shorter. If you’re tall ankle will show. If you’re short you will be happy no rolling or hemming needed. The legs and thighs don’t look wide or baggy on me but they are a bit more relaxed. I would have liked them to be a little slimmer but it’s not noticeable. The pants are mid rise and not sloppy on my rear so it’s fine. I didn’t want anything too slim or without room to move anyway. Twill is medium/ not thick or thin compared to my other chinos; I do notice the quality over other major retailers’ offerings.
Overall I am happy on first impression which is always most important - means I will wear these not toss in a drawer. I already have a similar tan/brown coloured casual pant or I’d consider that one too.

Much wider in the leg than expectedI purchased the Large and X-Large online to see which one would fit better. The X-large fit better in the hip (it is a low rise just below the muffin top) and the legs were very wide. The large fit but just not comfortable in the hip. I usually wear a 12 or 14. I sent both back because I wasn't happy with where the pant cut me on the hip or the width of the leg in the X-large. Too bad because the pant is very good quality and a great colour.

PantsI like the pant but wish the leg was a bit narrower. They are a bit wider then what appears in the picture.However I like that they are 100% cotton. The fabric is soft and comfy.
