Skinny Will Pant
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.

Comfy... But not very good quatity
I bought these pants in the summer, they were my first pair of pants from lululemon. After the first wear they got pilly- and i didn't even workout in them. I don't wear them very often now because they are worn out and have a small hole in them, even though they were gently used and I followed the directions on how to wash them. I probably won't be buying another pair of pants from lululemon if they are of this quality.

I just have to say I am in love with these pants. I purchased the wee stripe black/heathered black and they look so nice! Perfect fit at my usual size and super comfy. Yes they are a bit see-through when doing a downward dog because they seem to be a bit of a thinner material than my wonder unders or groove pants. Still very happy!!! Thank you LLL keep up the good work and stock up more on the patterned materials. I had been checking the site daily for this pattern to come back in stock and it finally did!

Will Will Will!
Yes I Will! I have many derivations of the Will pant; capri length, full legging, skinny you name it. I am less of a fan of THIS pant only because the leg opening is wider and not tapered. I'm a chubby one, 5'3", over 150 lbs, but an 8 fits great, except for the 12" that needs to be cut off from the cuff! When the leg opening is tapered, the extra length stays stacked around my ankles or I pull them down over my heels for a little extra foot warmth in the studio. I teach Pilates and am in my gear for 12 to 14 hours a day and have yet to have a problem with pilling. Only one pair is coming unraveled at the inner seam, but it's just the top stitching, not the actual seam, and I've had them for several years. The higher waist is great for me as I'm constantly tugging up my bottoms during the day otherwise, but agree the drawstring is a little cumbersome and makes a bulge under tops, even when the waist is rolled over. I only buy my stuff on sale and got these in a store and was disappointed they were sold out on line. I wanted another pair!

Love the Style, way too many pills
I own these pants in both the black and burgundy and am absolutely in love with the style, fit, and look of them. However, I've only owned them both for a few months and they are covered in pills, in random spots too where there isn't any friction like the front of the thigh. I always follow proper washing and drying instructions and am extremely disappointed in the quality of recent lulu products as I have over ten other styles that haven't done this.
