Zig When They Zag.

Women today are flocking to tight designer jeans, narrow at the bottom and low at the waist, hoping to accomplish what the gym couldn’t.

Well, their wallets are thinner.

You, on the other hand, have never been one to follow the crowd; so I’d like to suggest something different. A new take on the silhouette that made stars like Harlow and Hepburn lankier, leggier.

Yes, wide-legged pants in denim.

“Hmm, you look taller, somehow; new hairdresser?”

I spotted the original in Paris, where they know a few things about flattering the female form.

Lightweight Denim Wide Legs (No. 2388), in soft, weathered cotton. Clean, Hollywood waistband with big, well-spaced belt loops, an open, refreshing look. Trim on-seam welt pockets and front and back darts. Waist curves up in back to form V-shaped notch, for victory over the commonplace. 31" inseam. Imported.

Women’s sizes: 0 through 20.

Colors:Dark Indigo, Sand, Hunter Green, Red, Light Indigo, Chocolate, White, Black.

Difference in fabric
This summer I got the pale blue as well as white pants!They are wonderful.I got the black ones today.The fabric is not the same.The black heavier and feels as if it has more spandex .I love the style so keeping the pants..

need more colors
I have a pair in every color. Would love to add a light yellow and a deep purple(eggplant). Some of the first few I bought several years ago had back pockets, which the current ones do not, but I will still buy a replacement should they ever wear out (no sign of that yet!) These are my favorite go-to pants.

Truly WIDE legs!
These are wide from the hip downward they are not tight through the thigh at all. They hug the derriere as well, so they look flattering. Very nice surprise. Light weight and feels great! Waist is old fashioned at the waist not low rise at all. I'll probably sew the pockets shut.

Terrific Pants
WOW! At my age these jeans which most are skinny of today are not comfortable. These are now my favorites. Purchasing more as they are comfortable, great fit, wear casual or dress-up, wash beautifully, and had many compliments. Will definitely be getting more. Thanks JP

Nothing Like Them
I've lost count of my wide-legged denims however, I'll keep wearing/buying them as long as you make them, Messrs Peterman. Inspired! In fit, shape, colors. Thank you.

Truly the Best
These pants are fabulous both in how they feel and how they look. I got them on sale and keeping checking to see when they go back on sale so I can get more. They are really that good.

Exactly What I Wanted
For approximately two years I have looked for red wide-legs pants and these pants are exactly what I wanted. I am a size 8 and the pants fit me perfectly. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Long-time fan
I have owned so many pairs of these wide-legged pants, in varying fabrics & colors, that I have lost track. Unfortunately, I fell & skinned my knee while wearing my latest pair, so I need to buy some more. Really more than I can afford, but they are the only pants that fit right & look good on me!

Best denims ever to fit me.I wear a size zero and these are a true fit. The length varies a little in each pair, but have altered none. I have 7 pairs. Love the high waist and wide look, both so flattering. If you can think of any more colors to make these in PLEASE do. They launder beautifully, and are a great buy.

keep making these pants
These are the best jeans... they sit at the waist and the wide leg flatters. I just bought brown and indigo to add to five others worn nearly every day. FYI: Some are 65/33 (cotton/poly) as the website says and some (red, sand, brown) are 98 % cotton. These tend to shrink more and become stiff even when delicately washed and hung to dry. Please, J. Peterman, keep making these pants with the 65/33 fabric blend!

When theyre good, theyre very very good
and Im not sure how many good pair Ive had….Ive worn them for years, it seems. Went down to a size 10 from a 12 last year and got the Sand….all good, wore several times before washing (cold, low heat) and didnt wear again until last month, at which time I couldnt zip them. At all. So, tried the Dark Indigos, also a 10, fit perfectly, washed, hemmed, wore, washed again ….they still fit. Im ordering another Dark Indigo, but Im so disappointed with the Sand. Ill donate them dont think theyll ever fit again. So sad.

Best Fit!
I have these slacks in 6 colors. Some are multiples of the same color! The fit is wonderful for my figure type. I can now find slacks that are slim in the waist, hips and seat but fit well in the leg because of the trouser style is flattering for a fuller leg. My only wish is that the black would be a truer color rather than more of a washed out look. Would really love to see a true black. Tempted to dye to see if I can deepen the color. Ive been wearing this style for at least 5 years. They are super!

Love, Love, Love
I have three pair and am about to get another. Just know that you will need to wash these after one wearing as they do tend to wrinkle due to their weight I would also love to see these with a button and not a clip. All things being equal...I think the fact that I am about to get my fourth pair sums up my feelings!

Practical fun!
I could wear these trousers everyday. They are super comfortable and look great. They can be dressed up with a jacket, but work with just about any top. I now own 3 pair, and I am ready to get another color! Did find that they run slightly large and slightly long.

great pants!
At last....a jean for a FORMERLY non-jean person. I bought the dark indigo type. I live in them. Fit is good. Fabric is light and comfortable. My workplace has a very casual dress code....and I can wear these and look casual yet polished. I would like another pair in chocolate and maybe black.

In love
I never write reviews and I never gush, but . . . I am in love. Perfect!! I may never wear anything else. Goodbye to all the low-rise, skinny jeans, worrying about plumbers butt (shudder) or muffin top, that are everywhere. Someone knows how to make real pants for real women that look glamorous and feel oh so comfortable. Please never stop making these. And I'd love them in a charcoal gray. Thanks J Peterman, I feel like a million bucks!

Best relaxed pants
I live on Maui, and these light weight denim pants are the best for the tropics. They're cool, comfortable and fashionable. Thank you jpeterman, dont stop making them.

My very favorite!
If I could get away with wearing these every day, I would. Theyre perfect, and fit me perfectly! They are classic and and very well made. They go with everything! I can dress them up or wear them as the foundation for a more casual outfit. They wear well, and although I own two pairs, Im going to buy more colors. I cant say enough good things about these trousers!

I love it
I bought one pair, liked it so much. Later, ordered two more in different color. Perfect for warmer weather. However, they run big! I usually buy size 6 or 8. J. Petermans clothes tend to be big, so I first went for 6. Beside the generous cut and forgiving styling, the actual waste band was way bigger than any other size 8 pants in my closet. I bought size 4 for the second time, and they feel perfect. still very comfortable, but wont fall off!

TheseC are gorgeous!
these pants fit true to size and really flatter my figure, in spite of my little pot gut. After wearing them several times, I bought more. I wash them and hang to dry. Ive never had to iron them. Way to go, JPeterman!

Great fit!
This Jean is the best fitting pant in my closet. It is so comfortable and smart. I have a long waist and love the fit.

not what I hoped
Despite the exquisite prose, nice details and really nice fabric, my husband claims these make me look 15 lbs heavier longer, leaner and lighter. Maybe tne pleats are too deep. I wore them all day, so cant return.
