First, let me say I do love these pants. They are gorgeous and well-made, with crazy-soft silk and a silhouette that is one of my favorites. However, the downside is that they are pretty sheer (I got them in ivory). I knew they would definitely be the kind of pants that you need to wear nude undergarments with, but they are even more sheer than pictured. This means I probably won't get as much use out of them as I hoped. (I would have liked to have been able to wear these to work.) ES, if you're reading this, please consider using a weightier silk for pants (or at least the ivory ones). All that said, I'm definitely considering purchasing another pair--just in the navy color this time.
