I love these pants. I bought the brown and dune colors. I was hoping the material didn't look too much like jeans because I wanted to dress them up for work. They're just what I was looking for, all the while barely making a dent in the pocket-book!! I did buy a size up after reading the reviews. I wish they would have made just a bit more give in the waist band so that you could pull over the hips easier. Then I would have went with my regular size. The size up fits but was just a tad big in the hip/thighs area. I ended up washing them in hot water and drying to shrink a little. So far so good. We'll see if they stretch throughout the day.
