I had my eye on these pants for a long time because I wear a lot of business and business casual clothes, and they appeared to be a fit I really like. This might be oversight on my part, but they are not the business appropriate pants I was expecting. They're the material of sweatpants and looking at them, you can tell. I also thought they fit me somewhat oddly. Despite the pleats, they don't have much of a shape, and I felt like it's tight in the back but loose in the front, but every body's different, so that may just be a me problem. If you're looking for an elevated version of sweatpants, these are a good option, but if you want something you could wear to work, I probably wouldn't go with them. I don't dislike them, but they definitely weren't what I was expecting, but again, that could be oversight on my part. I still think they're rather cute.
