The whole point of gauchos is that it's a nipped/fitted waist with flowy to the point it looks like a skirt-legs. This is a very large (like for who?) waist, with regular wide legs. And the waist isn't elasticized nor does it have a drawstring to help. Just straight all the way down. Disappointing, should have been a lycra enhanced waist with the very skirt-like flowy legs.
