I got the dark taupe and black!   

 

One thing I thought I'd mention ....  Depending on inseam,  I often will re-do the hemline and make the front of the leg a bit shorter (maybe 1/2 in) so the pants are shorter in the front than the back of the leg. 

 

If hemmed at an angle, wide leg pants hang a bit better and don't "bunch up" on your instep.

Thsnx for the tip, @ALRATIBA!  You won't believe this, had originally ordered on air, then went online checked click-heres and cancelled the S and ordered XS, adding the black pair along with the dark taupe and navy!Woman LOL

Re: Anybody TSV pant

These pants make everyones legs look short, even the 5ft.10 model who wears the tall choice. The lengths are weird, 26 is too short for a petite if you are 5ft2 or over and if I get the regular length I would have to wear a 2 inch heel with it so it wouldn't drag on the floor. What is so hard about making a 27 or 28 in lenth for a petite!

Re: Anybody TSV pant

@lousgirl Jane also held that pair of gray TSV pants in front of her for the entire presentation, and kept a crossbody bag on her hip. I think she was doing the best she could under the circumstance. She is a real trouper.

 

The silver lining with these pants is that they're buy more and save! As Jen C said in her presentation, most of us will want more than one pair.

Re: Anybody TSV pant

I have a similar Anybody pant that has the drawstring and I really like it but I ONLY wear it around the house and to sleep in.  For that purpose, I'm thinking this version would be fine too (or maybe as a vacation pant on the beach, over a bathing suit, etc), but they mentioned wearing these with heels??  I just don't see that at all!  Perhaps this version is a little different and maybe you could wear it out with flip flops or sneakers and a t-shirt but I think these are pretty light and casual.  Also, at 26" the petite are a bit short and I'm 5'2" (unless you are 5'1" or under) so again, good for the house but not so much out for me. 

 

They also sold a lot of this fabric in the jogger style - anyone have those?

 

I'd consider one pair of the TSV but think I'll wait for reviews (just in case it is cut too short in the crotch) and wait for it to go to a clearance price :-)

@sueinsf The cozy knit foldover jogger pants (A293069, almost sold out now) are comfy and cool, but def. casual. I have them in the smokey taupe and black. I do like the fabric blend which I believe is the same as this TSV. Tho some at QVC would wear them with heels, I wear them with Birkis, flip flops, or my Vince (not-Camuto) slip on sneakers. I like that style better than the cargo joggers that came later. Tried a pair & returned them. 

 

During part of Jane's presentation at 4, MST, she said over 3,000 had been sold already. I don't know if that is a lot, or not so many. She didn't say how many had been "brought in" for the TSV event.
