Gap just started making suit trousers, so I decided to try it out.
I know, it’s the same company as Banana Republic, but I thought their styles might look and fit better on me. So, I ordered the Perfect Trouser Pant in 00p in grey.
- Sits at the waist.
- Straight through the hip and thigh.
- Flared leg opening.
Here’s what it’s supposed to look like.
It seems like GAP put a lot of thought into the design of their new premium pant collection. There are several different cuts and styles for different body types. So, there’s bound to a fit that works for me..at least, in theory.
The perfect trouser pant has angled pockets so they don’t pucker out and the back pockets are flush to the body. Though the pants aren’t lined, the construction is pretty good. Plus, the suiting material looked decent and not cheap.
But how does it look on me?
Umm….is it just me or does it look like my hips are huge?
The length is just right, but the fit is pretty bad. The silhouette from the back isn’t bad, but all the other photos don’t lie. I guess I’m curvier than I thought.
At the waist, it’s loose by a couple of inches so it can sit lower on my hips, but then the rise would be too low and look saggy. The rear end area is also unflattering because it flattens my bum and there’s extra fabric bunching. In fact, from the side, it looks like my bum is 3 times longer than it should be, which is not what I want.
These pants are not perfect for me.
The perfect trouser pant would work better for someone with slimmer hips and a thicker midsection.
What do you think about the GAP Premium Pant collection?
