These pants looked good on the tiny screen but when the package came I put them on and kept them on. The wool is a crepe type weave with good heft and drape. They're not heavy. Not at all scratchy and the perfect length. I'm 5'4" so that was an exceptional surprise. The small is like a generous size 8 but they stay up. The legs are wide but not dumpy. For me they were a lucky, happy find. Thanks.
