I ge a bee in my bonnet about stuff. The Gap wide leg jeans I tired recently are getting returned, as are two pairs from Loft. Too much pulling on the upper thighs on all three. (First pic is of one of the pairs LOFT pants.)

I’ve seen Angie say that the pulling, or whiskering, is hard to avoid on pears, though. The current high rise trend adds to the problem. as a result, there is a level of it that I’m used to and find acceptable.

I think these pants from Madewell are closer to the acceptable level. They don’t touch the ground but maybe could be hemmed to the “new” full length. I think they’d be more flattering if they show a bit more shoe. I know some folks still have a poison eye for that shorter length, so YMMV.

Anyway, I like these! I also love the tops I got as well. (YEP, one of those is heavily earthy tone; sometimes I shock myself.) I have some cropped wide leg jeans coming tomorrow.
