Ponte Slim-Leg Pant
Not proportioned for most bodies
I ordered this thinking it would be a true slim-leg version of the regular ponte pants. Wrong. The thigh area was balloon-like, more of a jodhpurs proportion, while the calf area was super tight. They looked odd and felt worse. Had to send them back. Maybe someone out there will like this style and fit, but it surely did not work for me. I had a hard time deciding how to rate the fit for this product because it was so big and so small all at once. I only rated the pants with the 2nd star because the fabric is good.

Excellent fit and material. I ordered a medium in charcoal which fits well and the color goes with everything..
I am impressed by the high quality of Appleseed's products and the reasonable price. Shopping online as well as through the paper catalogs or talking to a phone contact insures better service than in a conventional store.

Nice pair of pants.
I like these pants. The legs are nice and slim, and the rear is a bit too roomy for me. The charcoal color is good.

Just what I ordered. They fit perfectly. Wish they had pockets.

Returned because of fit
While I liked the color and fabric of these pants, I returned them because of fit. I take a petite pants, mostly more for the rise than the leg length. The leg length here was a bit short, and I was afraid if they shrank at all they would be too short. There also was a funny bell-shape on the outside of the upper leg that I didn't like.

Love the feel of the fabric, smooth fit. Fit would be perfect for anyone with large thighs. Most of my weight in in the midriff, though, so I looked like I was wearing riding jodhpurs. It was simple to run a seam down the outside leg seams to straighten the legs so they look great now. Care label says to dry flat rather than machine dry - an issue for trousers I planned to be part of my travel wardrobe. Dries overnight, though, and is wrinkle-free. If the legs fit me without the alteration, I'd rate these five star.
