They’re really cool to look at are extremely well made and I’ve had many compliments while wearing them. They’re also really comfortable to wear and great for regulating body heat.
Functionally though there are a few misses. There are no back pockets and the front pockets are awkwardly positioned so that they always swing the wrong way, it’s hard to put your hands in them (because of the angle of the cutouts) and they’re not deep enough for me to feel like my phone or wallet won’t fall out.
I’d suggest deeper pockets and some zips (or something similar) and a repositioning of the pocket holes to make them easier to access as well as a reshape so that the pockets inside fall the right way.
The other thing is the length. I hadn’t quite factored in how short cut they would be (which means I’m having to wear them lower on my waist) this makes the pocket situation worse and also can look a little parachute pant esque.
It’s hard to know which way round they should be worn. Having the dragon textured fabric at the front draws attention to the crotch area which is… an interesting idea. I get that it’s meant to be worn higher but it’s still an interesting choice of placement.
Overall they’re good, on the cusp of great. My main qualms are the pockets and the length. Everything else is perfect from the packaging to the material to the look.
My only slight is I wish I found these earlier in my pregnancy! I am 173 / 5'7" and bought the long version. They are excellent. Stretchy, made of good material and most importantly look great! I've been wearing these with (kitten) heel or pretty flats for work in the City and a shirt and blazer. I've only just recently washed them too with a non bio powder detergent - no fabric softener and just hung them up to air dry and they've fared well! Lasted all the way to the end. Keen to see how they operate post bump! Please, please make these in other staple colours: black and tan at the very least, so we can be stylish, ecological and practical all year!
I was very pleased with my trousers. I had a slight moment of panic when I thought they did not have pockets - but they do!! Hurrah!
i've received a lot of compliments on them too.

I am 24 weeks pregnant and I can’t think of a more comfortable trouser to wear now and beyond!
