Although paler than I hoped, these are still a beautiful colour - thank you Reitmans - and go very nicely with the floral soft gray sweater with the pink flowers or the jungle print shirt that has a peach colour in it. . They aren't a skinny fit like the green/merlot/gold skinny jeans but they aren't straight either so a better name would be tapered. If you have average legs, not skinny ones, these are perfect. The pants have some give and make them an elegant jean choice for visiting friends when you want to look nicer than regular jeans.
