Everlane Review: Styling the Corduroy Straight Leg Crop

To be honest, I wasn't anxiously awaiting Everlane's corduroy release.

But then the weather got cold and I started panicking. My closet seems to be full of slightly uncomfortable, summery pants and skirts with few good options for real fall weather. I'm not much of a winter dress wearer (unless I'm layering them over jeans), so pants are basically vital.

Grechen reviewed the Everlane cords in white this week and didn't really like them, so I wasn't expecting much from these when they arrived. But they're really great in a lot of ways...

Everlane Corduroy Straight Crop in Golden Brown

The Good

Fabric: The wide cord fabric, made from 99% cotton and 1% elastane, is SUPER comfortable. Definitely the most comfortable pants I've tried from Everlane.

Fit: The fit is very similar to Everlane's other pants in the waist and hip, but I chose to go up a size from the wide leg pants I purchased, to a size 6, to ensure a comfy fit through the Holiday eating season. As with other Everlane items, my "pear shape" pretty much requires that I order for my hip measurement rather than my waist, but those with straighter figures may want to size down, as these are a bit loose in the waist.

Color: My new favorite seasonal color. A dark mustard yellow-brown that pairs just as well with brown as it does with black.

The Meh

The silhouette: I wish these were true straight legs, but they feel more like a cropped boot cut to me.

The length: These would be MUCH more practical for cold weather if they hit at the ankle instead of several inches above it. I look a little goofy wearing socks and boots with these, but I'm going to pretend it's intentional.

Out of stock! These are on backorder until April (!), so this review may not prove to be the most useful since you can't actually order them.

For me, the good outweighs the bad, mostly because these are the first pants from Everlane that I can wear all day in any context without any discomfort. The Cheeky Straight jeans are a close second.

I would imagine that Everlane's Straight Leg Crop Pants are identical in fit to these, so if you like the overall look, you may want to grab those instead.
