Women's Pin Straight Cords
I purchased these after loving the mint colored cords in the hopes they would be a good neutral color. Upon receiving them, the color is neutral but is not the color it seems on the screen.
The color name (oak moss) should be taken seriously, as the cords do have a more green/gold tones as compared to khaki.

Construction of the pants is a bit off
First off,let me just say that I love LEC products and that most of my wardrobes come from LEC. These corduroys are made out of nice, durable fabric and have lovely colors to them (Oak Moss, Light Cypress, Washed Watermelon). They are very pretty.
But I think something has gone wrong in the construction of these pants. Washed watermelon was perfect in all its ways but I had problems with Oak Moss and Light Cypress pants. These two pants fit very well in the right thigh but the left thigh kept making these crease, creating this flap with excess fabric. In other words, the construction of the right thigh and the left thigh were not the same. So, when I was wearing them, my left thigh looked really bulky. I think either there was a problem in the stitching or in creating the pattern of the clothing. At first, I thought it was just defective so I ordered a new pair but that also had a same problem. I didn't expect this kind of poor construction from LEC... it almost seemed too amateurish to be true. Since I need warm, colored pants to spruce up my winter wardrobe, I plan on keeping them.

great fit, nice color, smooth corduroy
I love these pants. Got the olive and the blue. Couldn't bring myself to order the red or watermelon and there was no black or brown available. They have the skinny look and fit me well. If you don't want them to slide down in the back, a belt is necessary.

Very comfortable cords!
These cords have a little stretch which makes them comfortable, but also causes them to get a little bigger as the day goes on. (I'm 5' 4" and bought a size 26.) I would recommend buying them a size smaller. I'm keeping my pair. I just wear them with a belt! They are well made, very soft, and feel substantial without being bulky. I love the dark gold colour (not as green as the picture) It is an interesting neutral that goes with a lot of other colours. Length worked well for me. I just wish they came in more neutral colours as well as the bright colours!

I love these cords, they are very comfy and cozy, and they fit great. I have a lot of trouble finding pants that fit, I'm very slender, narrow in the hips, with a small behind so I was thrilled when the "25" size fit me very nicely when I tried them on. I bought them in the moss color, my only complaint is that the other colors are really not desirable at all. Please make them in more neutrals, the colors offered are a little to "out there", and have no place in my wardrobe!

love the fit,odd color
I loved the fit of these cords, I choose what I thought was the most neutral color,however the color was not what I expected, it's a hard to describe in words the color. I'm keeping them because of the fit. I really wish they where available in black, a true beige color even brown.
