ABC Pant (Regular)
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! :)

Awesome Pants, but stains?
I love the ABC Pant. It's between casual and formal, so it's an easy thing for me to throw on for class or to go out. The legs are very fitted which doesn't interfere with my bike chain (like many jeans). My only issue is that so far this winter I have a bunch of salt stains that won't come out with a regular wash. Any ideas for how to remove them without damaging the product?

Dont have a size for me
Love the comfort and feel of these paints but the 36 is too small and 38 is way too big. Wish they had a size that fit me because these pants are really great.

Very different fit for different colors
Got the grey initially and was pretty satisfied. I would say there was reduced ball crushing, but they are still pretty snug in the thighs and crotch. Decided to also buy the black and it fits much tighter, much less comfortable. I'm 6ft tall, 225lbs and got the 38" waist

Best ever, but hard to find
These are the best pants...ever!
If I could find these pants in sufficient quantities, I would fill my closet with them and wear nothing else!!
The only down side it the availability. I am usually a size 36-38, but wear 40's in the ABC pants.

Most comfortable pair of pants I own
I have had these for two weeks. Worn them at least 7 days. They are absolutely the most comfortable pair of pants I own.
From a 'style' perspective, the pants do taper a bit. So I would qualify this item as being in the 'fashion forward' category. I have chicken legs, and these pants do not help me in that area...but the rear end does provide some shape. I probably would not wear these to a business event that called for business casual. I liken this item to a pair of very nice jeans.
From a 'fit' perspective, like I said above, they are comfortable. They feel like a pair of sweatpants. I wear a 32 normally; the 34s here fit me just right...no belt needed.
Overall, a pricey item, but a great one that is well worth the investment. Given the rate I have been wearing these, if they last two years I will be thrilled.

Other pants should give up
There is no point in any other pants. The ABC pants are insanely comfortable, fit perfectly, and wear so well. Even was able to get a sharpie stain out. That's impressive. Wear these once and you're hooked. I wear a 32 in all the Lululemon shorts and the pants were the same fit for me.
