Skinny Will Pant
I just picked these up yesterday, and have to say that these are my new favourite LLL pants. They are great for cooler weather, and very flattering. I bought the same size I usually buy in skinny will, and they fit a bit more snug, but still feel great on. I hope they come out with a few other colours.

I am a 5'5'' 125 lb. girl with hourglass proportions and I love these pants. I love the extreme high rise (if you prefer low rise these might not be for you). I've had no problems with sheerness in the fabric. I usually wear a lulu 6 but sized down to a 4 in these. I love to pair them with a waist cut shirt like lulus OK Hi tee; it makes for the perfect comfortable/cute outfit. They are pricey but sooo worth it! Definitely buying at least 2 more pairs!

Love love love
I am a huge fan of the skinny will pant, and these my be my new favorite. Great fabric - like a slubbed linen, as someone else mentioned - that makes the legs and booty look incredible. These ran tts but felt a bit snugger than my usual 4. Not so much that I would size up. No sheerness. Please make more in this fabric!

I absolutely love the inkwell/black denim Skinny Wills! I went with the same size that I wear in all Lulu bottoms and they were completely opaque. NO sheerness what-so-ever, unlike the luon and full-on luon Skinny Wills I have tried. I can't wait to wear these and I really hope Lulu releases these in the most recent herringbone print/fabric! (Please, please, please?!)

Not what i expected
I own several pair of the full-on luon skinny will and I love them. I saw that these luon inkwell/black (new in 8/14) were not the exact same fabric, but I liked the idea of a inkwell/black color so I bought them.
I'm sure most here know about these being so thick, but I didn't. I can't imagine doing any sort of workout in them except maybe yoga in a snow bank.
They are cute. They are maybe just a touch smaller in the waist and a little less stretchy than the full-on luon. But I'm happy with them in the same size as I purchased in the full-on luon. I could wear them as everyday casual leggings. Still deciding whether to keep them as i bought them to wear them to pilates.
Just wanted to warn those who aren't familiar with this fabric that they are very thick.

This reviews is for the Skinny Wills in inkwell. It's a denim fabric, but the kind of which was there when first sheerness and camel toe crisis started, meaning it's sheer if you bend over, though you might get away with it in the dark room with electric lighting.

Lululemon 2008 Quality is Back with These!!
This review is specifically for the inkwell/black textured Skinny Will pants:
I was at my store the other day and the educator brought me these to try on. I've never particularly cared for the Skinny Will style because the pair I tried on previously was made out of a thinner fabric and they were kind of clingy in all the wrong places... but when I felt the fabric these were made out of, it felt thick and looked gorgeous with a bit of texture (almost like a nubby linen fabric).
Words cannot describe how much I LOVE these pants! The fabric is thick and compressive enough to cover any imperfections and make you feel like a million bucks! It's been a long time since I felt the need to purchase a back-up pair of LLL pants, which i did yesterday.
I'm 5'4", 120lbs and I purchased my usual wunder under size 4 (which was not sheer at all).
LLL - Please, please make more colors using this exact fabric!! I'm wishing for bordeaux and black. :)

Great Color. Very Opaque!
I'm very pleased with this purchase. The pants are very opaque and sturdy. The outside is like a navy with black "denim", but the inside is a soft black lining. I know lulu's denim can be hot and kind of heavy, but these are not too bad. It's definitely a fall weight material. I fit fine in my TTS 6 (5'6", 126#) but I think because of the nature of the fabric there is not a lot of extra give, so if you are between sizes you might want to order up. I found the TTS to hold everything in well but I agree with the other reviewer that the waist is a little small if you plan to keep the pants high-waisted. They're long as pictured too, but that seems to be the intended way to wear them. I think the color will be very useful and goes with most colors.

Comfort and Style
I like how these pants fit and that they have real pockets! Also that the lululemon symbol is down near the calve instead of the butt because my shirts always cover the butt!! Im 5'5" and I think I need to get these taken in but they are so comfortable and durable. The size 2 that I got seemed small at first glace. A few years ago I got the Groove Pants in a size 2 but these new pants still fit great but when I first put them on, I heard a noise from the waist and though agh did I rip them...I didn't but I feel like I could have gotten away with a 4. Im 120 lbs and lean but these pants seem to have a smaller waist that I was expecting. Still love them and they still fit super.

Random pant style...
I am obsessed with all things lulu and was excited for these.. I am 5'6 and curvy and these pants looked HORRIBLE on me. The length was weird, causing a big bunch at my ankles.. the material was super thin and slippery... Not my thing.. Not a fan of how the pockets look either. Blah. I passed them onto a friend, hoping she would get more use from them.
