ABC Pant (Regular)
More like the skinny pant...
I am 6'1" 186lb. Normally wear a 33 or 34 since I like a more loose fit, waist is a 32. I ordered these in a 34/34 and they just fit, so I would recommend going a size up.
Despite the waist the fabric is amazing however the legs were so tight and the fabric so thin. If I wore these out everyone would know what underwear I have on by being able to see the lines, that's how tight the thighs are. I have a more athletic build (work out 3-4 x a week) but wouldn't consider my legs thick by any means. Definitely do not fit as loosely as what is pictured, unless their models are stick thin.
Maybe exchanging them but as of now it seems likely I will just be returning them. I like my pants to fit and not be baggy but geez.

Great pants - don't wear with boots /w lace hooks
These pants are absolutely fantastic. They work great for working on, golfing, hiking, etc.. They have an excellent fabric which stretches comfortably. A little snug on my thighs, but the material yields perfectly giving it a fashionable, yet functional design.
However... the seem on the inside w/ the reflective strip WILL get caught on boots that have a quick lace hook. I tend to wear lulu pants with boots when out and about on the town - can't do it. So if those are your primary kicks, maybe seek a different pair of pants. Or a different pair of kicks.
Otherwise enjoy, because these rock.

Love them but belt?
Love them. They run a little small so the 34s fit great. Plenty of space in the thighs and calves despite being slimmer.
But, struggling to find a belt that would go. One with a buckle seems a bit much. Don't really need a belt just feels odd not wearing one. Thoughts?

I love these pants. I wear them as casual, for work (I am a financial advisor) and I wore them to yoga once just to see how flexible they are and they were excellent. They are great as travel pants, very comfortable on the plane or driving the car. I like the slim fit. I do yoga, run and I consider my fit to be regular. Very nice pants and I compliment your staff at the store. Also, easy to clean, just wash.

Great pants, if they fit
Like others here, to make the waist fit I had to try a size up from what I regularly wear. There is no getting around the slim fit though, and my legs were just too big. These pants are fantastic, there just needs to be an athletic fit option available.

Can't wear just these
I made the title of this review deliberately misleading. Truth is I would buy more of these pants except then people at work would think I only owned 5 pairs of one kind of pants in different colours. They are fantastic ! Buy one size bigger than normal. If that bugs your ego you can sew in a new label size ...

Hate the seam on the back of the knees
My husband tried these pants in in store because he was looking for golf pants. We both agreed the seam on the back of the knees is a brutal design choice. It makes them seem more like hiking zip off to shorts sort of look. He ended up getting nike pants which were more style forward. Huge miss because otherwise he would have bought them in every colour.
I have seen some men at work wear these pants and they really are not dressy enough for a professional office. I think if the knee seam was gone and the logo wasn't so visible they could pass for slacks. Hole there will be some improvements in subsequent pants.

Great pants when you find the right fit!
I usually wear a 32 in most jeans and the 32 in the ABC pants were simply too tight when I tried them on in store so I bought 34's; definitely go a size up. I have muscular/athletic legs and there is adequate space in the seat/thigh and they sit at the waist making these very comfortable. I chose these pants because they have a casual look that I can rock at the office.
I find that not all the colors fit the same. I ended up buying the Soft Earth & Deep Coal (which is actually lighter in person than depicted online) colors which are the newer colors and they fit me well. However, I tried the Black and Tan (older) colors in the same sizes but they seemed too loose. I would highly advise trying these on in store to find your right fit. Also, I got my pants hemmed without losing the reflective strip.
One annoyance I have with the design of these pants is the stitching behind the knees, or at least where it is on the model in the picture. I'm 5'7" and the placement, or even mere existence, of this stitching places it a little awkwardly lower to above my calf. So for the shorter guys, just be aware of this (it's more noticeable on the lighter colors like Soft Earth & Deep Coal but could be harder to notice on Black).
lululemon, I wish you would have more consistent sizing! Would really love these pants in black if they fit like my other pairs :)

Ordered my regular pant size 30/32 and they were slightly too tight, highly recommend ordering 1 size up! Other than the sizing the quality seems great.

I bought these based on all the wonderful reviews, and I'm so glad that I did. They are the most comfortable pants I have ever worn. They are extremely versatile. They can be dressed up or down.
The fit is definitely slim as advertised, so I would recommend stopping in to your local store to try them on first. I'm normally a 31/32 in Banana jeans, and got the 34 in the ABC pant and they fit perfectly. Highly recommend. Buy these now! :)
