Rated 5 out of 5 by RubyKat Perfect Pants
I have 8 pairs of the original fit pants. They are perfect pants. They can be casual or they can be dress. My oldest pairs are 8 years old. While the material is thinner and they are getting to the end of their lifespan, they have held up exceptionally. I wear these pants everyday and they have been washed and dried countless times. I do hang to dry my newest pairs, because I feel it helps expand the life of these wonderful pants. If they quit making these I would be lost. The fit is perfect.

I've bought these pants for years. They used to be great quality. They sure have changed. The cloth is very thin and small pin holes developed within six months and keep enlarging rapidly. If it weren't for the fact that these are the only pants I've ever found that had an inseam that fits me, I would never buy them again.

These pants are perfect for every day wear as well as exercising; I had hope to order the slim legs and boot cut but I am addicted to having pockets so had to go back to the traditional model. When these are new, they are perfect for casual wear and the color stays perfect for a great number of washings.

I have a pair in each color - always have to hem them as they run long. I wish they would make them in WHITE for a more versatile summer wear!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Teachergirl2011 Not what I used to get, went downhill.
I have been wearing Perfect Fit Originals since 2010. I wear a 1X and the first 2 times I ordered these, they both fit comfortably and last about 1.5 years before they started wearing out. I ordered for my third time, and they are horrible! The waist is almost an 2" higher (I measured against my last pair) and comes up almost to my breasts! There is excess fabric in the crotch that looks horrible, and it bunches up while you walk. The pants won't stay up, I am constantly pulling them up. The bottom and knees are saggy. The fabric is not soft like it used to be. I made a mistake and ordered the Straight Legs first with this last order and they fit the same way. I returned them for the Originals because I realized I had not ordered what I usually get and it didn't fix it. This is an issue with the product...the pattern and fabric has been changed. I am so disappointed because I loved these pants. I won't be ordering again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Katwyn Comfortable & close to the originals
The 2013-2014 version runs slightly larger than some versions of other years. The fabric varies somewhat by year also-- this year's is acceptable, but not as softly comfortable as some years. The fabric doesn't quite feel as if it has a 90% cotton content, but may do so after several more launderings, perhaps. I actually wish these came with a less "puckery"& softer waistband, and in varying weights for cold weather & warm weather, too. The originals with the sueded interiors were warmer and more comfortable in cold weather, while the more recent fabric weights can be a bit too warm at times during slightly warmer weather. I'm ordering a couple more pair of these this year, even though the seam stitching is also puckered a bit by the bottom of the pockets, causing the seams to poke out a bit strangely just there, but that may just be the way this particular pair had been sewn. That is not a deal breaker for me, because I really like the tapered legs on these pants the most! But, these might be a bit more flattering without the pockets and with a slightly smoother waistband, and if they came in 2 different fabric versions of colder weather and warmer weather weights, so I'd be inclined to rate them as being closer to Almost perfect pants than to perfect, but well enough that I am buying some extra pairs today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grandmagoosie MY GO TO PANTS FOR EVERY DAY
I HAVE ABOUT 15 PAIR OF THESE EXACT PANTS. THEY GET WASHED ALMOST DAILY, KEEP THEIR COLOR, SHAPE AND SMOOTH FEEL. I'VE GOT MY SISTER WEARING THEM AND SEVERAL FRIENDS. THERE ARE NO BETTER PANTS FOR EVERYDAY AT ANY PRICE. I DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE DRYER FOR I AM SHORT AND I SHORTENED THE PANTS. I AM AFRAID THEY WILL SHINK. I SHAKE THEM OUT WHEN I TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WASHING MACHINE, HANG THEM UP TO DRY AND THEY ARE AS IF I IRONED THEM. I'VE TRIED OTHER MAIL ORDER COMPANY'S PANTS AND I FIND THEY PILL, BAG AT THE KNEES AND LOSE THE COLOR QUICKLY. TRY THEM. YOU WILL LOVE THEM.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Elare Not A Perfect Fit for Me
The description of these pants were that they are relaxed through the hips and thighs, but they weren't on me. I bought up one size and they were still too tight. Also, I ordered petite but they were very long, I would have to get them shortened.
I carry my weight in my hips and thighs and these were skin tight, I would not wear them out in public. The material and construction were nice, but they didn't fit my body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CMCshopper Comfortable, practical.
Great daily wear pants. Comfortable stretchy material that does not bag at the knees. Washes well. I am 5'3" and 132 lb. and somewhat pear shaped. The small fit me very nicely.
