Thanks so much, everyone! YES, they are even better than the old - and more comfy than the old pair. I'm wearing them with a very happy heart

Also: I noticed that my body heat takes away the creases in pleather. Interesting....

Body heat also removes any creases in leather. Are these pull on? What is the in-seam length?

So glad they’re even better than the retired pair!

I’m telling you, I think Maeve the Colette are magic pants. I’m long waisted, wear a size 20, a very different shape than Angie, and they’re my favorite pants. I have four pairs!

Joy, not pull on. Half elastic at the back, and zipper fly with button in front. Inseam length on mine is 26 inches, size 25. It will lengthen as you go up in sizes.

Nadya, you are soooo right! The Colette by Maeve - Anthropologie house brand - IS a magical fit! So far it has fit every client who has tried it across sizes 00 to 20. Some size down, and some up. Fabric varies too. You have amassed a KILLER collection! Gorgeous on you!

I have two pairs in The Colette: orange pleather, and white denim. LOVE

and Nadya thanks for the review will keep this style on my radar

Gosh, these are fun!! I like them better than your first pair! Can’t wait to see how you style them.

Thank you for you reply, Angie. These pants.will be fun.

What a luck! As others have already said, these look even better! So glad for you.

Love these, I always loved cropped widelegs a bit longer(akas 7/8?), too!!

Thanks everyone! I like a happy ending

Fabulous replacement! I am such a lover of the half-elastic back feature in pants--it is hidden for the most part and makes them so much more comfy!

Woohoo!! So glad you found these, Angie and that you love them even more than the first pair!! They look stunning on!

You're all sooooo nice! Thank you

I think I'll wear the pants again today.....

I'm late to this post... Gorgeous pair. I just saw your post about the other pair, ouch, but as you said the happy ending is great! Enjoy your new pants.
I ordered and returned 3 pairs of faux leather pants this year. I didn't like the fit of any of them on me...I will need to try this brand or DIY a pair instead.

JP, yes, try them! Maybe you shan't need to make them

Fab!!!! I wanted the violet Collette, but I'm really in between sizes in the pleather.

Oh dear, Dana

Worth an alteration perhaps?

The perfect color, the perfect fit, amazing! Enjoy that chicken dinner!

Not only do these look great, they look comfortable as well. I love the thought that body heat irons out wrinkles.

Thank you! The new pair are very comfy, a better fit, and I wear them more frequently

Oops, I forgot to come back to this thread. Angie, I didn't like the faux leather enough to have them altered...not sure what it was. I have a summer print Collette that I'm sure I'll have altered when it's time to wear them...they stretched just a little too much last summer.

Dana, rest assured that faux leather does not stretch out
