Rated 3 out of 5Â by Library Chick in SC So Comfy, but Problems
Wonderful material and really good colors. Would like more color options next season. Very comfortable. But the sizes run SO Large. I ordered a 12 - I'm usually a 10, but I knew Corduroy (with Lots of Cotton!) always shrink. I wore a pair to work for "first wear," and the pants were dragging the ground by mid-day. Some elastic in the waistband is fine if I'd ordered down a size - maybe even 2 sizes, but as it stands, these pants are actually kind of hard to keep up. I'm thinking if I run them through the wash on hot and bake them in the dryer, I'll be golden. I hate to give up on such comfortable, well-made pants. I'll Follow Up if this works. I'm Hoping! (I have khaki & royal blue - grand colors!)

Rated 2 out of 5Â by EQ Decent fabric, poor detailing
Been very happy with items ordered from VCS over the years. Not this time!
Ordered several pairs in the size I often wear. Way too large, so returned them. I ordered one pair the next size smaller and the fit is okay except for the way too generous waist.
I have taken up the waist which was complicated by the fact that TWO layer of corduroy fabric were used on the waistband, not just folded over, but as a separate strip. This results is a lump wad of fabric across the back. I will take out the inner layer of cord and sew in a lighter fabric. Probably should just have made pants from scratch! Where is Leon Levin when you need him?

Rated 4 out of 5Â by cory Recommending with two caveats
Great material, construction and color (beige) but it's always easier to shorten a garment than to lengthen it.
Usually there is not enough material to lengthen it properly which is my first caveat...the pants are too short for me. The elastic in the back is a nice touch but there is too much of it. A shorter piece of elastic would have given me a better fit...the elastic gives too much fullness in the seat. Giving more dimensions in the description of the pants would have been helpful, i.e. the length of the pant legs (or inseam).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Grandma in GA Soft and Comfortable
These are good everyday pants. They must run a little large though. I do not like tight clothes so it isn't a problem for me. The only thing that is a little troublesome is they have a gap in the back when I get up from a seated position. It might be because I need a smaller size. I purchased the tan and navy blue and they are both nice.
Overall, I like them.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Sue 5+ Did not fit well
The pants were size 10 petite. They were too big in the waist and too short in the length. The material was nice-a heavy corduroy and I liked the color. I did not return as it was too much trouble. I took the hem out to see if that will make them wearable.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Corduroy Love these pants!
I love these pants. The fabric is great! I love the flat front and the elastic waist in the back. Great fit! My only suggestion is that I wish they came in brown and gray, and I wish that they had more black!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Ibuystuff Sizes Not Accurate but Nicely Made
I wear a size 8 but this size 8 was huge, almost three inches too big in the waist and hips. Vermont Country Store customer service was great and told me I could try to wash them to see if they would shrink. I washed them in HOT water and then dried them on high. They shrunk a little, but not enough to fit. I therefore have to send them back. Judy, in customer service told me in the future I could call VCS and have customer service advise me on the fit of any article of clothing I want to purchase. That is great customer service! These pants washed up great, are soft, and seem to be made very well. Too bad they do not come in a size 6 or 4 or I would just exchange them.
