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

    Great office pants

    This is my third pair of pants from red thread and first of this cut. They are a great office pant and look professional. The color is beautiful. Would buy again.

    Suprisingly good fit!

    I got 2 of the tee shirts and the ankle pants. I love them, the fit is perfect. Usually pants fit me weirdly because I have large quad muscles, these manage to make it look normal. I'm really pleased. The tee shirts are awesome, too! I will be buying my wardrobe staples here.
    I have been trying to create my own sweaters by hand knitting and machine knitting, so well fitting clothes are one of my goals. It really is a challenge, and I would love to know how you do it!!

    If you only need one pair of pants, these are the ones-they are soo versatile!!! :)

    I was shocked to receive my pants in less than a week!!! It was so nice to have updates where they were in the process of manufacturing and delivery. They are oh so soft! And talk about versatile. They’ve been worn to exercise, shopping in flats, out to dinner in heels and to work in my office twice! And I’ve only had them a week and a half!!! My favorite part is the bottom slits on the side of the ankle (I purchased the low ankle) and also the pockets ~soo roomy yet they lie flat( no extra hip bulk) with ZIPPERS! What could be better than that!! So glad I’ve got them in time for my upcoming vacations~they will go from casual to dress!!! Love, love, love them! Can’t wait to order another pair of pants that actually fit me as soon as I get them!!!

    Perfect gray, medium-weight

    I love these knit trousers, well made, and medium-weight fabric. These are a bit heavier than the black ones I ordered before (I have 2 pair of those because they are so wonderful). The gray ones don’t have zippered pockets, and for some reason, I expected that (maybe because the black ones do). Overall, I am very pleased with these.

    Customer service above and beyond

    There was some confusion on my part and I ordered the wrong kind of pants. Two of them. The helpful service that then got under way, once I received the first pair, and had to return it, was outstanding. Patient, helpful, prompt and, most importantly, the end result was perfect. I am very happy and recommend Red Thread to anyone who would listen. Thank you.

    Do yourself a favor and get this outfit

    I got the ankle pant in black and the snap jacket in white. Both fit like they were custom-made for me. Oh - right - they WERE custom made for me. So stylish, and comfortable. They go from work to weekend, and travel well because they don't wrinkle. Where has Red Thread been all of my life???

    Work in progress.

    My pants arrived and they were just a tad too long and a tad too big in the waist. I was able to return them at no cost and have them altered. Waiting for my altered pants to arrive. Customer service was wonderful - prompt, clear, friendly, and supportive. I am impressed.
