Since they reduced the lycra in the slim crops, these are my new fave smart casual trouser. Sadly short stocked now

Yes I have the navy and they are perfect.

Thanks for the tip.

I've had my eye on these since last year. How do these size?

tyto Sat 27-Jun-15 19:48:29

None left in my size.

They look lovely on other people, but I just can't do it.

Having always been tall for my age growing up, on me they will always be, what the DCs term ankle bashers. I need to get over myself.

Gap trew lovers - do you have skinny thighs and not much difference between waist and hips?
I'm a 12 but have a 10" waist/hip difference and definitely do not have skinny upper thighs!
Love those but fear they would Not Work on me. confused

The broken in straight khakis are not so slim of thigh nor are the tailored crops. They are quite flattering as the cotton is a reasonable quality.

Thank you TheBreeze I'll check them out.

If you look on the American gap website there are loads of reviews, something sadly missing on the UK one.

Siolence Sat 27-Jun-15 20:35:56

That's a great tip. Thank you.

size prob a bit generous kids self she is a size smaller
slim legs

TealFanClub Sat 27-Jun-15 22:18:10

yes i have short ' waist' (although these a bit longer in the rise) and slim legs

mewkins Sat 27-Jun-15 22:25:30

I am size 10 in most shops. I have to get an 8 in these and I still use a belt to keep them in place! I have skinny legs but wide thighs and these are a good fit. I am 5ft 7 and buy a tall but I could get away with a regular. I roll them up anyway.

Siolence Sat 27-Jun-15 22:26:46

Mine are slim till the last 4"!
Sadly this seems to be pita for skinny trousers. Gah. I might have to do the hell of in store trying on.

TealFanClub Sat 27-Jun-15 22:27:19

i am 5 7 - with long legs

they are supposed to be cropped....

TealFanClub Sat 27-Jun-15 22:28:09

they don;t bag much, which I like and i like the belt hoops too

Siolence Sat 27-Jun-15 22:52:13

I do like belt loops. Yyy to above ankle I was thinking regular am pretty much the same height with long legs.

TheBreeze Sat 27-Jun-15 23:51:46

I do like the skimmer ones but as I am 5'10" that length looks like I can't get my trousers long enough, I either have to have definite crops or proper length trousers. All the GAP trousers I've had have washed well though and I'm alway a 12 where I am a 14 really. A bit like Next sizing.

TealFanClub Sun 28-Jun-15 08:19:29

Depends on your inside leg I suppose. I was surprised the crop was 7/8 on these and I'm a 31" leg

FraggleHair Mon 29-Jun-15 11:00:25

Just bought a pair in navy. I like a nice pair of ankle skimming trousers.

TealFanClub Mon 29-Jun-15 12:37:37

Online ?

mewkins Mon 29-Jun-15 18:00:00

I am a 32ins leg and have the tall ones. I roll them up 3 times in order to make them just above ankle length (sorry for specifics, thought it may help gauge length).
