Washable Wool Fly-Front Pant
Great wool weight for the desert
These pants are a good winter trouser for the desert. Most wools are pretty heavy and have to be dry cleaned but these pants are the perfect weight and easy care. I'm weary of having my clothes at the dry cleaner more than in my closet, so these are ideal. They wash and machine dry like a dream, holding their shape without shrinking. Great fit, nice colors--I have almost every color. I'd recommend these to women who live in the warmer parts of the west.

I was disappointed in the fabric of these slacks.
I purchased these slacks for my mother for Christmas. She had asked for wool slacks. These were promoted as "washable wool". The material felt more like polyester, very light weight and certainly not a wearable for a cold winter. The tailoring was nice and provided a trim fit. Hopefully she will be able to wear when warmer Spring weather arrives.

Pants were ok but very strange fit I thought
I hadn't noticed on ordering that these pants weren't lined, I thought they were (I guess it's only the ivory that is fully lined). I thought the fit was very odd. Normally I'm a smaller waist with a larger bottom (or curvy, in my glutes mainly). These pants fit my waist and upper hips fine, although they ended up over my belly button so the rise was a little odd, and then were a bit tight around my thighs - it just made for an odd look. I though they might fit somebody with a very straight and narrow body, but not sure about that.

Lining did not fit properly.
The pants were so thin I wouldn't have wanted to wear them in winter and who wants wool pants for any other season. Also the lining was too thin. You could still see skin through the pants and the lining! The lining did not fit properly, so there was no way to press them. The lining continued to be skewed and wrinkled - and wrinkles were visible through the wool. I returned them - very disappointed.

These slacks fit very well.
The pants are an excellent fit. The quality appears to be very good. I have not worn or laundered the slacks so I cannot speak to the durability of the product.

Washable wool is excellent value
I have been buying Appleseed products for my mother for years and have always been pleased with the fit and quality

Professional Looking Pants
The pants are lighter weight than I expected and don't have "all the warmth" of Wool. As I have found with other petite pants, length is good but the rise is too long. Luckily I can sew and know how to adjust the crotch length. If you are short like me you can expect the pants to come up way past your waist.
