ABC Pant (Regular)
All occasion, but a bit too tapered
I'm 5'10", #190 and got the Soot reg in 34(same size in what I wear the kahuna shorts in). I love the way these pants fit, I've worn them to work and out with my girl. I've played soccer my whole life and I do crossfit, so my thighs/butt are always a limiting factor when trying to find something a bit dressier than jeans. These pants are a perfect fit for that something dressier that looks good with a button up.
My only complaint would be they're a bit to slim at the bottom which limits me to ankle high boots/dress shoes. If they sat a little bit wider at the bottom to sit better on top of low quarter kind of shoes, I would buy every color...Thanks!
Hey Lulu: why are almost all your "to & from" pants so tapered at the bottom?

My wife recently went back to Canada, we now live in the UK, and the only thing I really wanted was a pair of ABC pants. She delivered a pair of size 34 as requested, i'm more like a 33, but I thought i'd get a bit of room. The quality, look and feel of the pant is excellent but unfortunately the size 34 is more like a 31!
The current reviews on sizing, now on the site, weren't there at the time, wish i'd known. Lulu clearly these pants are incorrectly sized and this is very disappointing for such a premium product.
Is there any way to return them?

PJ party at the office!
I now own 3 pair in total and I must say that they are extremely comfortable. Inherently I am a jeans guy. I have always loved jeans however since I suited up with the ABC Pants, I find myself grabbing my ABC's more than my jeans. Even it being Fall and a little cooler out, I still prefer the ABC's over anything else. They are so soft, and so comfortable, I feel like I am wearing my PJ's around the office. The cut is perfect for me, they are little bit more fitted however they have tons of stretch in them. I am 5'10" and weigh 160 (a little heavy for me ;) and wear a 32 inch waist. In all my other pants I wear a 30 however its common to "size up" with Lulu duds. They are a bit on the costly side but you wont regret it once these pants wrap around your lower half.
On a side note, if you see a pair in a certain color, do not wait very long because they will sell out and you will kick yourself for not pulling the trigger.
Hey Lulu, bring back the deep camo green!!!!

These pants are probably the most comfortable pants I've worn. I've actually took off my sweatpants to put these pants on. I am 6'2" around 220lbs. and these pants fit like no other. Normally finding a pair of pants that fit my hockey butt and big quads is a nightmare but Lulu has seemed to have the perfect cut for athletes like myself. Ive used these pants for everything from going to class, riding my bike, to formal dinners and conferences, and they've never let me down. I had to size up to a 38 but they fit incredibly. Not only do these pants look good but they are functional as well. They've never snagged or bunched up on me even when riding my bike. I truly would recommend these pants.

Excellent pants, inconsistent sizing
I bought these in gray for my husband and he absolutely has loved them. He wears them all the time, so I decided to pick up another pair in black. The sizing was completely different. In the gray I bought a 36 and they fit really well, but the 36 in the black he couldn't even button up. So, I'm returning the black, but I don't know if it was a problem with just that one pair, or if I order another 36 they will be better fitting? Maybe I need a 38 in the black? The sizing is frustrating, but the pants are great if you find the size that fits.

Wonderful every day pant
I use these pants whether I'm teaching, training or entertaining and they never fail. Super durable, comfy and stylish. My only wish is that they had a zipper pocket on the front side as I don't generally put anything that would need to be zipped up in the back. It works for my change though!
I own two pairs and would love to have another when I get the chance.

I have a pair of these in deep camo, and navy blue. I do eventually want to pick up a third pair of these in tan. They're so good that I want to have three pairs.
Here's the upside: They look good, they fit well, they have an excellent shape to them, they feel excellent to wear, the material is awesome, they don't wrinkle easily at all. They can be worn casual or dressy. All things considered, they're worth it. I would absolutely recommend these pants to anyone.
A couple criticisms: The waist offers zero flexibility. If the waist had just a bit of stretch to it (I'm talking a minor amount, not expecting yoga pant stretch), I'd call these the perfect pair of pants. I would consider buying these a second time over just for a bit of give to the waist, but the identical pant otherwise.
Another problem is that the waist on these pants is sized differently from any other pant I have ever owned. I wear a 34 waist normally, or 33 ideally. I wear these as 36's, and they're still a bit snug on the waist (the navy blue ones). The navy blues are tighter on the waist than the deep camo. Both are 36 waist.

Great Pant - Odd Sizing
Hi, First off, positives. These are some pretty great pants. The right amount of technical details and still looking hip and casual like a pair of chinos. The fabric feels durable and the leg fit seems to work well for casual, travel, light running, hiking and dress it up for office. Very cool.
Opps for improving. Please please please get your sizing standardized and consistent. I wear a 32 in all of my jeans or pants, Citizens, Sfam, levi's, Hudson etc. In Lululemon I wear a medium in bottoms and with the Kahuna shorts (which are awesome) I wear a 34. (I have two pairs of these and both 34's fit differently in the waist.#notconsistant!) These pants have the same waist with two button closure. I tried on the 34 in the ABC pant and, I am not kidding you, it fit as tight as a 32 in the Kahuna shorts. I tried on a 36 and they were great in the waist but obviously a little looser everywhere else.
For me personally I can't buy online, I have to try on every single item to make sure it fits my body regardless of what the tag says. Same issues with the 5 year tee. Overall I love the stuff and the tech that goes into it.

I purchased my first pair of ABC pants (black) a month ago, and they have not disappointed. I wanted a pair of comfortable and ready to move pants and these seem to fit the bill. They did as I have gone to office, playground, and nighttime fun in them. They are very comfortable and dry quickly if they become wet. I was recently in London and with the weather and touring these pants worked like a charm. I sweat and going from the underground to walking to touring sites these pants made the transition by keeping me dry and cool. Washed them out in my hotel room and they were dry within 24 hours. The price point is not inexpensive but I believe they are worth it. They have become my favorite pair of pants as I have added another pair. As an active husband and father these pants go from office to sports practices/games to dinner with wifey very easily.

Loooove all your products. Have every color of every item of clothing you manufacturer. Only complaint I have is on ABC pant fly. On top of fly, the fabric always folds over, exposing the zipper. Therefore, seems like fly is open. Your image on your website depicts the fly folded over to a lessor degree, that area needs to be reinforced. Otherwise, these pants ROCK!!
