Essential Slim Five-Pocket Cords - Regular is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not skinny pants I imagined that these would fit like skinny jeans. They are slim, but not form fitting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me They were too baggy On me in some places but the right fit and size for waist. I sent them back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a good fit for me . . . I order 2 pair of the cords. And they are good looking pants. But the fit just didn't work for me. I'm 5'2", 117 lbs. The pants fit ok in the waist and hips but through the calf were way too slim - not comfortable. I had to return.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Baggy 'slim' cords These cords fit well around the middle--and I like the somewhat hi rise--but from the hip down they are BAGGY, not slim. The cords I got seem very different from what's in the picture. I am not willing to pay to ship them back; instead i'm going to get them tailored, which might cost a few more dollars but less hassle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Color Not As Advertised Mahogany is not wine or bordeaux. If you're looking for dark brown cords, do not buy this color.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inconsistent sizing I purchased these in the petite size as previous denim jeans which fit perfect. The first time I ordered my regular 6 was a bit snug so exchanged them for the petite 8. One pair fits well with a slim leg. The other pair, in a different color, fits completely different - baggy throughout the leg and wide instead of narrow at the bottom. It's as thought one pair was a regular size that was simply chopped off. The same size/item but very different fits. Not happy with these, but really dislike having to return one more time. I will wash and dry to see if they shrink. Quality control lacking in this particular style.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not what they used to be these used tobe my FAVORITE cool weather pants; I think i have owned 5 pairs over the years. I recently ordered a pair; the fit was bad, the cord was too thin and overall the pant are not like they used to be. I sent them back for a refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Essential Slim Five-Pocket Cord Not slim, more like straight leg. Tight in the crotch and loose everywhere else. Not a fan!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rise is too short back and front. Waist too large I bought these a couple of months ago in size 0. While I have not returned them, I am not especially happy with them. I have a difficult time finding pants that fit, which is frustrating as I purchased pants from Garnet Hill a number of years ago which fit me perfectly. The front and the back rise of these cords are much shorter, while the waist is larger than my older pants.The waistband on these sits four fingers below my natural waist. I need to wear these with a longer length top due to the short back rise. I kept them because while they fit poorly I needed to replace older cords and the competitors offerings were a worse fit. These seem to be scaled down versions of the larger sizes, rather than tailored to fit a size 0 figure. The colors are lovely. Slightly less jegging width legs would be nice too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very baggy legs Way too short, and thighs are way too wide. My daughter calls them granny pants :( I’m very disappointed
Date published: 2019-01-08
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor fit The waist is too small for the size I ordered, and the hips, butt, and legs baggy. I know I'm not super curvy, but I've never tried on such a poorly-fitting pair of pants. These must have been designed for the Kardashians.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Close, but a miss:-( I bought these with high hopes. The fabric is very nice, the colors are good, the cut of the legs (slim) is good, but there was something about the pants overall that did not fit well and was unbecoming, especially across the hips. I tried them on every day for almost 2 weeks before admitting to myself that I didn't love them. So I returned them today.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst fit ever! I bought these about two months ago. I am 5 ft 8 inches and 130-135 on average. I wear a four in most pants. These are huge. There is all this extra space in the front, and really baggy. I didn't put them on until about a month ago, so feel I can't return. Bought two pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fit was terrible I bought according to garment fit measurements which usually assures me of a great fit. But while the hips and waist were accurate, they didn’t work at all. The rise was weird and the legs were crazy tight. Didn’t work for me and while they were called “slim” I didn’t expect them to be this fitted. Like leggings. Hoped for more of a straight leg. Returned them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strangest Slim fit I have ever seen. I was so excited to receive these cords but they ended up being the strangest looking/fitting “slim leg” pants I have ever purchased. These are not “slim”. They fit great at the waist, hips, thighs but at the calves they are like a puffy sleeve. I honestly wondered if they were a joke. Now I have to pay to return a pair of pants that are nothing like what they appear in the pictures. I had read the reviews and went back to see if I missed something. Everyone thinks they fit great. Now I am afraid to ever buy another pair of pants from Garnet Hill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Weird fit I tried these pants in 2 different sizes. Both were too big through the legs and they were extremely short. I had to return them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Odd fit I just received these pants, and am returning them. The fabric on the thigh area is baggy and accordions across your legs. The waist is small and tight. They are not a slim cut.Color is nice

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not slim I’m a size 14 and the more I wear them the bagger they get. Should have believed reviews that said they are not as good as they were a year ago. Hoping with washing they will shrink but stuck with this pair . Will return 2nd pair I bought. These are not slim like the picture
Date published: 2019-11-10
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible fit I sent them back. They have a strangely shaped seam at the crotch so they have extra material or something. They didn’t fit or feel right and they are too short and I am 5’5”.
Date published: 2019-11-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inconsistent sizing Like others I’m experiencing horribly inconsistent sizing on these. Size 8 in pebble fit well though a bit baggy in places. I ordered a second pair in ash wood in 8 and they’re uncomfortably tight. I measured the two to compare and there’s a 1” difference in the rise and about a 1/2” difference in the waist. So frustrating. I’ll have to send the second pair back and look elsewhere for more cords this season.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OHHH!!! WHY THE CHANGE...???? I have worn slim 5 pocket jeans from Garnet Hill for years. Dressed them up; dressed them down; a year-round favorite. Just ordered a new pair and the legs were like stovepipes!!! Ohhhh! Why the change? Will not order again until the to former cut and quality are reinstated. Ohhhh! Why the change???

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strange fit I loved earlier versions of these cords. I had to send this version back, though, because of the way they are constructed. They are too short in the inseam, so that when I bend my knee, the ankle gets caught and pulls down the pants. They are also too wide in the thigh--lots of extra material.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sizing completely changed from last year! I bought the Slim Five Pocket Cords last year and was so happy. The fit was comfortable and perfect for winter cords. I bought a new pair in black this year and the sizing was completely different. The cut is different and the waist feels much higher and tighter. (It's not me - last year's cords still fit beautifully!) These are going back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from yuck These were tight around the waist but roomy around the crotch and thighs before getting slightly narrower, like the tapered mom jeans of yore.
Date published: 2018-12-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Changed style I have a two pairs of these from a few years ago but am returning these. The pants no longer have a lower waist - it is definitely a high-waisted pant now. Not comfortable and very disappointing, as I love the older pairs.
Date published: 2018-10-31
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not like previous version I have two pairs of these from previous years, which I love, but I will be returning these. These are not really a slim leg -- they sort of billow out from the low hip all the way to the ankle where they are tapered. In addition, the rise is higher than in the previous versions.
