Every week we get a phone call or two asking about our pant fit: “I bought these pants a few years ago, I want to buy more but I’m just not sure which style they are?” This post is meant as a guide to help you figure out what your favorite pants are called.
Stories about our pant fit are quite legendary. Many store managers of stores no longer with us, Liz from Fresh Ayer in Pennsylvania, Viola from Babs on South Granville, Barb from the former Bodacious on Main Street and Suzanne From Suzanne Bell were all strong advocates for our ‘famous’ pants. If you remember these stores, no doubt you may also remember and/or have bought our pants. Of course most of our current retailers carry our pants too.
All of our pants come from a standard block pattern of our own development, and the fit has not changed since the beginning of our brand in 2007. We design them with our signature smooth fitting waistband and a cut that allows for a proper fit through the crotch. The main differences come from the width of the leg from the hip downwards.
From the widest part of the hip, these pants fall straight down. These are the widest cut at the hem and also are easy to spot by the flatlock stitch pattern up the sides of the leg. This is the same stitch used on yoga wear and in fact these pants are reminiscent if a yoga cut. These pants fit everyone but are especially flattering on someone with a pear shape. They are also great if you’re full in the leg and need the extra room.
The newest to our pant family, these were created to answer the request for pockets. The pockets are smooth in a single layer design that doesn’t pull out with your hand. The leg width falls about half way between the Serene and the Flex pant. In their first season, they have already become quite popular and mostly sold out. We’ll let you know as soon as we have more stock early this spring.
Over any other pant we make, the Flex pant is our best selling item of all time. It has a straight leg cut perfect for all body types (except someone proportionately heavy in the hips or legs).
All our pants are made with our fabulous soft premium bamboo fabric that is made in Canada. Our fabric and pant fit will make you feel like you’re wearing pajamas. They’re the most comfortable pants you’ve ever worn, I promise.
