I got these on a bit of a whim - I'm of petite height and "cropped" length can sometimes hit at weird places.
I fluctuate between around a size 10-12 in other clothing lines, so I purchased these pants in XS.
These pants are very nicely crafted. For my "petite"/stumpy legs, the snaps begin just above the knee and the hem hits just above my ankles. They are extremely comfortable - there's elastic in the back but the band doesn't look frumpy. The front is flat and there are three closures (two buttons and a flat hook) as well as the zip. I normally do not get compliments from co-workers for the pants I wear (makes me want to re-evaluate all my pants now) but three of them in a row remarked at the smart look of these pants.
Most telling: the fit is such that I was confident enough to do a French-tuck of my button down shirt, giving both relaxed separates a more polished look. I've been an un-tucker for most of my adult life, this is new territory for me!
