ABC Pant (Tall)
I am a wedding photographer and these are the best pair I've ever owned! Looking good, being comfortable, and being able to move is important to me. They look great, hold their color and shape, and are extremely comfortable. I own these in every color and have become a lululemon fan since.
I wish they made these in more fun colors!

More Colors Please!!!
My 16 yo son LOVES these pants!!! He is a hockey player and has the bubble butt and these fit his 6'4" athletic frame perfectly. Please note that they run about one waist size small as he is a 34" and had to get a 36" for the right fit. I purchased the grey and black and it's all he will wear to school. I wash these a few times a week and they hold their shape and color (hang to dry). It is so hard to find pants with an inseam long enough for those legs but these are spot on! My only complaint... NOT ENOUGH COLOR Selections! Please, Please, Please offer the TALL ABC pants in more colors. Khaki would be great as would a dark blue.

love these pants, they are the perfect length and I really like the slimmer fit. Material is great too, they are lightweight and comfortable.
I read the reviews about the waist size being small and I would have to agree. I got my normal size (34) but found them a bit too small.
I will 100% be buying more of these pants once the sizes come back in. Hopefully they restock!

Beautiful fit and look
This is my first pair of pants I have tried from Lululemon and I am glad I found this. Even if this was a reduced product at the time, it came in my size which is EXTREMELY hard to find (30 waist and I am a thin 6 foot 2 inches). One of the few pants I have ever worn that are classy, comfortable and fits in a nice slimming matter. The black but subtle shine works well. My only concern would be based on my location of frigid Canada, these pants don't fair to well with cold weather (about -10 degrees Celsius and below). The material seems to have limited insulation. But really it is not a major concern and everything else is in fine order. Cheers.

Great travel pants
These made great travel pants on our recent trip to Japan. We try to travel as light as possible. I highly recommend these for anyone looking to save on weight, quick dry when needing to wash in the sink, look good in the city, and be able to walk and climb for miles.
They stay looking good all day and come out of the suitcase or bag wrinkle free.
A true tall. Yay!

Suggestion on sizing & fit
A great pant, if you get the right size.
I have developed quads & a butt from years of skiing & biking. Am 6'2, 216lbs and have worn a 33 x 36 straight leg boot cut jean (Gap or Banana Republic) for at least 15 yrs. Have not been able to get my thighs into a pair of Levi 501's since I was 21. The reason guys are dumping their blue jeans in favor of this pant is because it is cut like a jean. What's the difference? It has the same yoke seam at the back like blue jeans. That's the seam that runs below the waist band and above the rear pockets. The result is that if you have a developed butt, your pants stay up because that yoke grabs your hips & top of your butt, without needing to tighten the waist. Your pants stay up because they are hugging your hips and not like sweats that need to be tied at the waist or bought so tight your butt stretches out the fabric. Fitted properly on an athletic body, it's the yoke that allows you to wear well fitted jeans, even with the top button undone & they wont fall to the floor. Lay ur favorite jean flat and you'll see, the back is higher than the front, and the waist is actually narrower than the top of the yoke seam. That's why others complain that pants without this yoke have a shapeless backside and the fabric just hangs down the leg. As with all Lulu's I have to up-size. In this pant I wear a size 38 -- remove your ego when ordering, it's only a number. They yoke rides comfortably on my hips, pant is appropriate tight across the top of the butt and there's an extra inch or two in the waistband but that's what makes them comfortable -- never have to undo the top button when laying down. Low rise? Yes, but because of their cut & the larger size I need, they're perfect. In a size 38 jean, the crotch would down mid-thigh. Length? First pair I actually have to fold up the cuffs when wearing flip-flops. But like all Lulu pants, no matter what they tell you, they WILL shrink after a few washings. Agree with positive remarks of others regarding comfort of 4 way stretch. Read the description: "ABC" stands for "anti ball crusher" and they deliver that despite the otherwise fitted look. The legs taper down to being 1/2 way between a reg and skinny jean. Would prefer a wider leg opening as it would look dressier with loafers & blazer. I have also have a 48" chest & size 12 shoes so skinny calf/cuffs look ridiculous on me. Have been buying Lulu's when they only had one store in LA and no online ordering. They originally made this pant for trainers to wear at the office and then go str8 to teaching a yoga class. I still have pairs that are well over 10 years old, all with the rear yoke, but wider cuffs that I still wear to the office with a blazer. I have literally traveled for 3 months with only 2 pairs of Lulu's, going from trail, sleeping on long flights to walking well dressed into restaurants. But designs/cuts have changed over the years and Lulu's had more misses that hits in designing a street pant. Last hit was the Kahuna a few years ago. With this pant they have another hit. Would prefer a side vent pocket rather than the jean design but now I'm getting picky. LULU ARE YOU READING THIS? You've forgotten a huge segment of your market. Make a pant with a slightly wider cuff and we can always have a tailor take them in (like I did with the Kahuna's). And keep producing the tall versions. And keeping making pants with the rear yoke as that's what makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE in fit. Lulu's are the only polyester pants that fit tall guys, are breathable and don't look like 1970 leisure suits. If I could find the fabric they use, I'd design my own line of dress pant as I always get compliments on the older more traditional pairs Lulu use to make.

I love these, but...
I bought a pair of these a year or two ago. They might have had a different name back then. The material has a light pinstripe and these do not. I wear a size 36 waist. I bought size 36 and they were too tight. I had to exchange for 38s, which fit great. I love them. They're as comfortable as sweatpants but look presentable in almost any situation. Recently I decided to buy two more pairs. Having learned my lesson I bought 38s. I can barely button them. I need a size 40, which is 4 inches larger than my normal size. 4 inches! I see that size 40 is sold out, probably because all the guys who wear 36 bought them. I would give these 6 stars if you guys could work out your sizing issues. You also just lost a $250 sale, as I have to send these back and you don't have my size for an exchange.

Anything but ABC
I'm a pretty consistent 40" waist 36" length. These pants are lacking in both dimensions, with the 40 waist being closer to a 38 and very short in the rise so that the pants were just the opposite of the advertised "ABC." I like the material and styling so they would probably work well for shorter, slimmer guys who can order a size up. They are being returned.

Amazing versatile pants
Absolutely love these pants at 6'5" finally found a pant long enough. I wear them to work on a casual day and out on a Saturday they are so comfortable and fit so well. I have black and charcoal would love it if they came out with some more colours in the tall size.
