PART OF THE EILEEN FISHER EASY-DRESSING SYSTEM A travel-savvy collection of some of Eileen's favorite silhouettes, the Easy-Dressing System is about living an elegant life through comfort and simplicity. Fitted, flowing and always flattering, each easy piece is designed especially to be mixed and matched to create many distinctive looks.
These pants just arrived-I love them! I am 56 years old, 5'6", very curvy-the true fit profile was for me to order a large-but I have two other pairs of Eileen Fisher knit pants, both XL, so I ordered XL in these too. Perfect length, very flattering. Quite expensive, especially since I pay in Canadian dollars, and pay duty-but these will be a wardrobe staple!
I'm not one who wears elastic waist pants (I think that's for old ladies!) and I'm also not one who normally wears skinny legged pants (I've been resistant to that trend) but the fact that these were dress pants that I could wear with any type of heel had me intrigued. When they were on special I decided to take the chance - I'm glad I did! They're really comfortable, dressy pants! The material is good quality and I'm going to get a lot of use out of these pants! One note, I originally ordered the petite (I'm 5'2") but when I tried them on I felt they were too short (they hit above my ankle) so I exchanged them for the regular length which was perfect.
I plan to live in these pants for the remainder of the season. The fit, fabric and shape are all as flattering as could be. They solve all wardrobe quandaries and earned the highest praise possible: my daughter in college not only approves but asked me to get her a pair as well. They are that nice.
These pants would be a really great addition to a wardrobe *if* they weren't super baggy. I purchased them in size small, based on the size chart, even though I'm typically a medium in other brands. The pants felt good, but were baggy on my thighs (I don't have skinny thighs!). They looked bad and I had to return them.
These are the best pants for longer tops either flowing or fitted. I think a more elegant look than skinny jeans or tights. The xs fit me perfectly and I am 5'3" 120 lbs. I love the length which is right above the ankles. These I think will be my favorite pants which can be dressy or casual depending on the top.
Expensive, yes, but awesome: comfortable, look great on any kind of body. My credit card bill frightened even me - the person who knew how much she spent....then I took a very long plane ride wearing these pants - they made all the difference, and went with everything, so I could pack less.
Comfortable flattering pants. I am a little between sizes, and so the waist was a little large but overall, they fit great. Look nice with tunics, and I'm looking forward to wearing them with my boots in the fall.
I am a big GH and EF fan and actually have these crepe pants that I had purchased a few years ago and showed signs of wear. To my disappointment, these newly-purchased pants were considerably thinner, buckled at the knee and hit at an unflattering point at the ankle. Most of all I am disappointed in the shapeless outline of these flimsy pants and will return, though for what I do not know--I really need some black easy pants right now that will go from work to play. And the price, given the quality, is way over the top. Really expected to give these pants 5 stars.

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear you were disappointed with the Crepe Slim Ankle Pants. A Customer Care Specialist will be in touch to see how we can help.
Not sure I would have purchased these if I had not gotten them on sale...they are pricey! That said...I love these pants and have worn them no less than 5 times in two weeks. I ordered a small and I am 145 and 5'3".
I thought the quality of these pants was top notch and the fit too. My only complaint is that EF charges way too much for her items. I purchased these on sale and that is the only reason I would spend that kind of money of elastic waist pants.
Still snow here; anxious to wear these - fabric has nice feel, seems true to size. I may want to shorten about an inch as I'm 5'2" and want these to appear as stated "ankle pant". Waist comfortable. Not too tight, just right.
These pants are classy and fit well. They'll go great with heels or flats. The price is steep but i got them a little cheaper on sale which prompted me to buy them! I do own another pair of Eileen Fisher relaxed fit crepe pants and the fabric of those is heavier and more durable. These are lighter weight so keep that in mind.
It is always a relief to find a great pair of black pants that work for work and for dressing up. these do not disappoint. nice ankle length, fiitted but not tight throughout the leg and hips. wonderful crepe material. just great!! True to size. I am 5'4" and the XS was the right size
