I ordered these at the beginning of September and finally have the correct size in hand. I ordered a US4 and US2 to compare, but Boden sent a 4 and a 6. The 4 was definitely too large, so I sent both back and waited patiently for the 2 to arrive.

Verdict: they're great! Nice substantial fabric, very structured, trouser styling, not jeans, so you could dress them up -- very lux and velvety. They are a wider wale, more my preference -- for the menswear vibe. Never been a fan of skinny-wale, stretchy, jeggings-style cords. Colour is deep and inky with a nice sheen to it. I cleverly wore a black top so it's hard to see the waist in the pic, no matter how I lighten it. They are perfectly tailored, no waist alteration needed, and a higher rise than my Boden Richmonds. Honestly, they are a better fit all round than my Richmonds, between the higher rise and the straighter leg. The 26" inseam is a sweet spot for me. They come nicely pressed with a turned-up cuff; it is possible to unroll the cuff and then they are about 28", a more akward inseam for me.

I am choosing Boden size 2 more consistently these days, when I used to opt for a 4, and I don't think I've shrunk much. I know Angie had noticed a slight upward shift in Boden's sizing, and I am inclined to agree. Quality is still phenomenal! Now do I add the matching cord blazer in the adorable star print??
