I usually wear a 26/27 in other brands, so I ordered a 27 in these, and the waist is very tight. They seem nice otherwise, but will be returning them.
I love these pants and have them in size 29, 31 and 32. They run very small. But I love them! Managed to get into the 32 size and I am on a weight loss plan post Covid life style changes. I wish the waist was made a tiny bit larger. I’m 170 5”4. They don’t seem to have them in size 33 in stock or Even make a 33. I must say great quality and I love the style just not comfortable for a curvy women.
I had a good feeling about these based on photos and I’m not disappointed. Interesting silhouette that works, the legs are very wide but somehow the whole design is not over the top. My figure with larger waist generally does not work with high waisted designs that rely on “having a waist”, and not surprisingly I has to size up, but it worked. The waistline stretched during the day, but the pants reman crisp and put together, polished enough to wear to work. Really love them.
They are comfortable and the material is substantial. I get compliments when I wear them.
The Gladstone pants are great - comfortable wide leg, beautiful rust color, comfortable and well made. The only thing I’d recommend is to size down. I compared the Gladstone pant size chart against a pair of existing pants I have from a different brand (in a similar style). I was pretty confident that the size 26 Gladstone would snugly fit my 26” waist, but they were about 2” too big out of the box. I still wear them with a belt, but wish I had gone for the smaller size!
