The Worst product i ever bought of AA...
Was running for only one time and after the first washing - the whole crotcharea is damaged (pilling) I really dont know which cotton was used here..
I will receive a replacement and will see how it goes - but that should be a joke

I'm 32/33 waist. Finally found a short rise sweat. The crotch doesn't hang down to the knees, so the pant moves with you when you work out. Washed in hot water, then in a hot dryer. Length shrank. That's what I wanted. I'm about a 30 inseam. The are perfect now. If you're worried about shrinkage, do warm or cold wash. Since they are a knit, they will stretch out with wear, so don't worry too much about it. Now, AmAp. Make these in a non-fleece sweat for warmer weather wear. The tri blend would be cool to have available.

I'm 5'1", 115 lbs, (usually size 25-26 jeans), and ordered black in XS. They are super soft and comfy, and make my bum look good despite not being completely fitted. The only downside is that they are a little bit long for me; I was hoping that they'd shrink but didn't. Still very nice though.

There is nothing slim fitting about these pants. I'm 6' 1" and got a large, they are just baggy and frumpy looking. Maybe I got a bad pair. I wish they fit they way were supposed to. The material is nice though.

I purchased a gray pair, size L, and here's my opinion:

+ The length is perfect for me, being 6'1". They are comfy, and they're flattering where it matters.

- The major downside is that I bought these for yoga, and the knees are all stretched out from some of the kneeling poses. They're now pretty droopy-looking, which is not so good. I hated the drawstring, and it wasn't convenient to tie it, so I pulled it out and put it a shoelace.

I'm not sure if I would buy another pair or not.

just received mine, and they are indeed very slim, and do not run bigger than normal like previous reviewers stated. Normally I would get a Large, but opted for a Med based on the feedback here. and they are too small. Should have gotten a Large.

I have this item in 3 colors (Grey/Black/Brown). I'm 5'10; 130lbs, 32" inseam. It's a great fit, but I won't be drying this style go forward, as they are too short to be worn as stylishly as I'd like.

I am short and on the heavy side, so I ordered a large and they are EXTREMELY long. I knew I was going to have to hem them when I ordered them. However, other than the length, these pants are great! Very comfortable around the waist and the material is so soft. Pockets are very convenient and they don't lump up and make the pants look bunchy.

These pants are too loose. I ordered an M and it's way too loose. The problem with ordering a small is, it'll be too short after a wash. If you like ankle high pair of pants, then it might work for you. I guess the "Slim Fit Pant" is slim if compared to someone who is 250lbs up.

Firstly, these pants are very comfortable. I was a little dissappointed that they are bit baggy. I was expecting a slimmer look like in the product photo. I'm 5'9" 32" waist, and I ordered the medium. If i order more I think I will go for the smalls. Still, these are great pants.

I work out all the time and have for 25yrs.. I am always looking for sweats that don't make me look like a circus performer. And these are the only ones I can find that fit and are comfortable. I bought them in every color. And they look even better the more times you wash them...I know i have 3 pairs I bought 3yrs ago.

Got 'em because any shade of brown is next to impossible
to find anywhere! Why is that!!??
Length is no problem. Just wear your shirt out and slide
the pants to the length you want. How hard is that?
Extremely comfortable. I'd buy lots more if they made
tan, beige, and light brown in addition to the darker brown.

I bought a pair, and they're really comfy. But I wish there would be different pant lengths; I'm a short and stocky guy and I had to cut off quite a few centimeters, and that's not really what you buy something for.

i got these less than a week after i ordered them, and they were probably the most comfortable pair of pants i ever put on. i'm pretty thin and lanky, and they're still pretty long on me, but i just roll them up a bit and it's fine. they're my chill pants now. will be buying more in different colours. ;)

Bought these a few months ago for my partner, but can't convince him to try them on. I put them on today to go for my morning walk, and they were very warm, light and comfortable to move in. Not the most flattering shape for a woman, but a good length - I'm 6 feet tall and the L covers the top of my shoe without catching under the heel. Can't comment on how they look on a man, because I still can't get mine to try them on! Will write an update if he ever relents.

Got a pair for my son, who already had a pair that he loves. I got them because they are a great fit for him, a tall, lanky young man - and because they do not bunch-up in the brace he has to wear after having had knee surgery. Thank you for making such a fine product!

i love my white ones. love the pockets. i tried asphalt, didn't like the color. if i were to throw out an idea, i would move the unsightly drawstring to INSIDE, cuz i always tuck mine in, and it doesnt always stay there. i would also like to try the light blue ones, they look great.

about the stretching,
it helps to buy a size down
so the stretch won't end up ugly
also, the heather grey has polyester
(less stretch, but also less shrink)

Ditto to the baggy knees, once you wear them for a couple hours the knees get really saggy and then the pants look ugly. Really ugly. If you don't believe me take a look in the mirror, side-profile.

these pats look, fit and feel pretty good. BUT im disappointed in the fabric. the 100% cotton stretches too much in the knees and it doesnt reform to normal, so after wearing these for an hour, you end up with baggy knees until you wash them again. it looks completely stupid and defeats the purpose of the slim fit. i think they should use a fabric blend that has just a little bit of stretch to it. THEN they would be perfect.

I also bought the extra small, and the inseam was around 31 or so. Which was quite a drop from the 34 inseam size small, but all I had to do was hand-stretch the legs and they fit me. I'm 6'2", 29 inch waist (belly button circumference). Hope that helps people.

I am 6'3", and I bought these in small. The inseam is actually close to 34 inches, even in small, which is the inseam I usually wear. As for the slimness factor, they are not that slim, and they start to stretch out. All in all, highly recommended.

I bought these for my boyfriend in army. They look so much better than regular sweatpants. Anyway, they're really long, so we hemmed them. & they shrunk a little when we dried them, but luckily, they still fit. I've since bought two more pairs of them for him in brown & asphalt. This product is one of the best purchases I've made at AA.

These pants are very thin, do not buy if you want something that will keep you warm. I bought the white and you can see my fuscia manties through them. You can also see the pockets--awkward! Very comfy though. I will enjoy them not in public, not out in the cold. I bought these to run in during fall and spring, but will be running in them only in the summer. SO THIN with hanging threads everywhere. If you buy them, get a size too small if you're short to average, as they are really long. Im 5'7" and bought small.

These are fantastic sweats! I wear them to my yoga classes and when lounging around. They're close-fitting in all the right places and perfect for a guy who is fit but not bulky.

I dub thee the snuggle-hide-a-stiffys. When you wear them girls want to snuggle, than the spooning gets to the level where it gets "hard" to conceal your love. You than have choices either take them off or become a monk and hope that AA makes these pants in saphron.

I purchased these in need of something for lounging and for my dance classes. I'm pretty tall and thin, so someone suggested that an XL would fit well for length.. until the first washing where they shrank about 2 inches in length... still pretty comfortable, but had I known they were to shrink that much I would have just bought a M or L for the fit and continued to roll the bottoms up as I am doing now.. anyway, really comfortable, perhaps it'd be a wise idea to start making inseams for these pants for people who find them too long, and people (like me) who find them too short..

i would definitely say these are the most comfortable sweats ive ever worn hands down. they are a bit long (at an inch) but ive always liked that fit anyway. Though the general fit is slim/tight, the complaint about the butt is valid since the crotch is "long" so its not snug at the ass but then again, who buys sweats to show off their ass? I like them, 5/5 even with the saggy bum.

I got these in Army and love them. It's great that they are as warm as sweatpants but do not have an elastic ankle. They are the most comfortable pants I have ever worn. (This was written before their first washing.) They are great for doing anything you need to be comfy for in your home like sleeping, watching TV, playing video games, doing homework... Well, this is starting to sound like an ad so I'll stop ;p

Great pants for a great price. It does make your bum non-existant (as someone has already pointed out). What i do to solve this problem is folding the waistband so i can pull the pants a little higher without looking like Ed Grimley. Would buy them again. Nice and comfy.

These are currently my favorite pants because they are so comfortable. I wear them around the house and since I'm on a college campus I can wear them to class too (lot of people wear sweats and pajamas to class). And a plus is that the slim fit makes it look a bit stylish, instead of lazy (like regular sweats look). Great for a casual, comfortable style.

They arn't realy realy slim but compared to normal sweats they are, they are probably the fit of a normal pant. very long so some people might need to tuck into sneakers or take them up a bit if they dont like them touching the ground kinda thing. Warm but not too thick. only gripe is that they dont flatter your arse. kinda make it look all saggy and non existant. there you go.
