Andy Palazzo in Lightweight Wool
I ordered these lovely fawn pants according to my size on the chart, but sadly returned them. I had visions of them becoming a personal winter staple, seeing me through fall and spring temperatures topped with sweaters and through the coldest days of winter layered over thermal leggings and under a long wool coat. Upon receipt, however, I realized that they would function less as a staple and more as a statement, with limited wearability (not an option at the very-fair but still significant price point).
A note about the wool: it's plush, warm, soft, un-itchy(!), and lightweight enough to be pliable. In a word, it's stupendous. That said, in the Palazzo design, the wool felt excessively generous, to the extent that I got a bit tripped up in the fabric as I walked. This isn't a problem I have in my beloved Andy Palazzo in linen or silk. For my needs, I think these wool pants in the more streamlined Andy Trouser or Florence silhouette would be more wearable—both a statement in their loveliness and a staple in their functionality.
