AE Skinny Trouser
These pants are great! The only problem I have is that they're not skinny enough toward the ankle. I will be buying the black, navy, and grey ones.

Wanted to love these...
These pants fit me really weird. I had been wanting them for awhile because they seemed the perfect work pants. I tried on my usual size 2, and they fit fine in the legs but then the upper part/waist was huge. When I sized down to a size 0, the fit was a bit better but it the pants bunched really strangely in the crotch area. Might be better for a different body type.

I've been looking for work pants and these are perfect. I'm 5'2 and 113lbs and its always hard to find a pair of trousers that are not too long. I finally purchased these online in 00short and they fit great!

Great for Work
I had been looking for a skinny black pant for quite some time and had been unsuccessful in finding anything. I was so happy to find these in the store.
I vary between a size 6 - 8 depending on the fit and how stretchy the pants are and i first tried on the 6 and they were a little snug so but were ok. I then tried on the 8 just for the heck of it to see the difference and they were baggy all over. I decided that the 6 would be a better fit.
They start off fitting snug and the rise was slightly lower than i would have liked. However i decided to buy them anyway knowing that they'd likely stretch out.
Just as i had guessed, they did stretch out... alot. Like i said above, when i first tried them on they fit snug to the body and slightly tight in the waist. By the end of the first day wearing them they were loose, but still flattering given the style. I had extra room in my waist and the rise was better now that they had stretched. If they had been jeans i probably wouldn't have liked them. However since they are as AE calls them 'trousers' i didn't mind. Also since i got them for work so having them slightly loose didn't bother me all that much.
I will say this though, in my opinion they are not trousers but more of a chino or khaki type pant. The fabric isn't like the silky standard 'trouser' material so if that's what you're looking for you will be disappointed. However if you don't mind it being on the slightly more casual side(yet still able to dress up for work IMO) chino pant then you will likely be in for a treat.
One more warning, they pick up lint like crazy. So if you own pets best to make sure you have a lint roller handy.
Best of luck
PS, in the store they only had the khaki colour and black colour, i was debating on getting the khaki as well however now that i see the grey online i kind fo want to order the grey now!
