Womens Comfort Cord Pant (#WB059)
Comfy & Flattering
These are the best looking, fitting, and feeling work pants I've ever found. I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs. Size 2x30 is what fits me best. Although they are not at all tight, they have a slim fitting shape all the way from thigh to knee which is very flattering on my shorter legs. Yes they have a wide leg opening but I wear big chunky hiking boots for work and I NEED there to be some flare to fit over my boots--otherwise pants get bunched up around my ankles and it looks ridiculous. The stretchy corduroy is soo comfortable for work where I am constantly climbing, kneeling, and bending. I cannot find these anywhere anymore and I'm very sad as I'd order several more pairs. I've resorted to getting the 32" length which is a little easier to locate and plan on shortening them somehow. Carhartt, please make these or another pant with the same fit-and-flare shape and stretchiness again, I'm begging!!!!

Too much leg flare
The leg width on these pants increase by 2" within the last 6" of length. This gives a really flared look which you can't see by looking at the picture on-line. I didn't wear flared/bell bottom pants in the 70's when they were "hip", I'm certainly not going to wear them now. These pants were returned for a refund. Why is Carhartt discontinuing the staples of their Womens line, most noteably the WB013 and WB011? Carhartt doesn't "fashionize" the Mens's line, why do they feel compelled to do so with the Womens?
