My black ankle pants from Red Thread is like my second skin. They are so comfortable. - Catherine Laskey

I'm really excited about these pants. They are incredibly comfortable and stylish at the same time. I love that you can dress them up with a fancy top or make them more weekend casual with a t-shirt. - Lynn Perkins

    Favorite black pants

    I ordered the essential ankle pant, in low ankle. When they first arrived they just weren't quite right. I wore them a few times before emailing RedThread about the fit challenges. They quickly responded and offered to either alter them for me or make a brand new pair, both options at no additional cost. The fit issues seemed minor enough (they were a overall just a bit too big in the waist, which was causing the whole look to shift down). So I sent a few photos of the areas that didn't look right to me (waist, knees, hips) and voila, just with those pics and little bit of info, they tailored them perfectly. The turnaround time on that was very fast.

    Now my issue is that when I wash them and lay flat to dry, I need a second pair to wear while I'm waiting for them to dry, ha! Seriously love these pants. They are very well constructed. They can easily be dressed up or down. Very adaptable in terms of where I would wear them, such as an everyday dog walk or out to dinner. I wasn't sure about the fabric at first b/c it's so different from any of my other pants, but it's soft and comfortable and looks like it will hold up very well over time! Very satisfied customer.

    Magic pants!!

    I was skeptical that a quiz and a couple of photos would be enough to get me to pants that fit well, but it did!! These pants are comfortable and fit so well. I’ve worn them a couple of times and never have to adjust them when I stand up - they don’t pull up at the ankle, and they don’t fall down at the waist. I’ve told several friends about my magic pants and told them to get some for themselves!!

    Perfect fit!

    I was so excited to get my Red Thread ankle pant delivered. So easy to order, and the fit was perfect. The best part is that these pants have two nice roomy pockets that zip up, so I can put my keys, or my phone, or whatever in the pocket and know that it's secure, and also still looks good.

    I'm thrilled with these pants!

    I ordered the essential ankle pant, low ankle, and, at the first shot, they are perfect. I had my 14 year old take the pictures... easy breezy! The quality is great; they remind me of an Eileen Fisher knit pant. So easy to travel with and dress up or down. I recommended to my MIL! So happy to have a pant that fits my small waist and my giant hips! Thank you!

    Love my new ankle pant! I can pretty much wear them anywhere. I can dress them up or down and be ready for any occasion. The fit is perfect and the quality excellent. Thank you from a tall girl!
