Rated 1 out of 5 by Katiedid1013 Please Offer Your Original Wearever pants
I have purchased and returned two pairs of the new "smooth fit" wearever pants. So disappointing. The wide waist is huge and makes the fit uncomfortable. The heavy material makes the pants feel heavy, and they are far too hot for the summer. There is also a cheap feel to the fabric that the previous pants did not have.
I can see making the very thin waistband on the orginal pants a bit larger, so that it's maybe a 3/4th to 1 inch wide, although I don't think it is necessary. However, the new waistband is HUGE.
I rush to buy every new color of wearever pants. After trying two differnt styles of the new "smooth fit," I have also had to return some tops and jackets -- I need dark blue pants to go with them. And I really want the new black and white print wearever pants, but again -- no choice but that huge, unflattering, uncomfortable waistband.
So glad to see I'm not the only one. This was a mistake. Bring back the regular wearever pants!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Torrey Bring back the real Wearever pants!
PLEASE bring back the original Wearever straight-leg pants! They had a wonderful drape and comfort that cannot be matched by your new and heavy smooth-form pants with that awful wide waistband. I am a very long-time J. Jill customer (over 20 years), and I rely on the original Wearever pants for my core outfits.

Love the Wearever Straight-Leg Pants. These pants are perfect. They are by far the most comfortable pant I own. They also travel well ( no ironing needed!). The small elastic waistband is perfect and wish JJill would make more pants using the smaller elastic in their pants instead of those wide bands! Maybe you could bring them back in different colors too. Please, please, bring them back! There are no others like them anywhere, I've looked!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LW71 Please Bring Back Wearever Straight-Leg Pants
These were my go-to pants for work, church, dinner, etc., etc. for many years. I need a larger size to accommodate my hip/derriere. I have tried your new pants in sizes XL, 1X, and 2X and nothing fits like the Wearever Straight Leg pants -- the hip area is too tight and the waist area is too loose. I have tried the wide-leg pants but the leg opening in the larger sizes is huge! The wide-leg pants might be fine in the smaller sizes but not in the larger sizes. I caught the heel of my shoe in the bottom of the pant leg and almost fell down the stairs. As you can see from the many great reviews, this style of pants has a large fan base. There are no alternatives. Please bring them back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cello69 Perfect pants.
These pants are comfortable, elegant, and easy care.
I like these far better than the "smooth fit", which are not comfortable at all, and have a harder feel to the knit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nova64 Not typical wearever pant fabric
I,m a huge wearever pant gal. These pants were not at all like the ones I have purchased in the past. Fabric to think and waste band to casual. Seems like they should be part of the pure Jill collection. I was also hoping for a navy blue and this was definitely not navy. Bring back the old wearever pant in more colors please. Navy, brown, gray.

I ordered these pants in an XS Petite. They are more like an XL Petite. They fell off when standing...

I thought the pants would have more of a straight leg than they do, but love them anyway. They are super comfortable.
