When choosing pants, we suggest those that feel easy on the skin. With an expressive sling pocket on the side, these pants are woven in a dark chambray teal. Get the look of jeans without the stiff fit, these pants are our favourite alternative for a casual night out with friends.
Model wears Matter Size 1. 174cm tall.
Wrap around the waist or hip for a snug final fit. Elegant and effortless, the gentle folds from the side pocket are balanced with side darts to give a skimming effect.
100% light weight cotton. Soft and breathable. Colour and weaving variations may occur, part of the charm of handloomed fabrics.
Changes in colour and structure with exposure to natural surroundings, washing or wearing may occur.
Wash separately in first few washes to prevent colour runs. After that, machine wash with similar colours. For best results, handwash cold or use delicate machine wash. Do not tumble dry. Line dry inside-out. Cool iron inside-out.
But the sizing was just off for me. I'm 5'2" and 125 lbs. I had ordered a 1 in a different material, the pinstripe, but it was too tight around my bottom and thighs. Everything else fit and length was good but I felt like I would split the butt if I sat down too quickly. I exchanged it for a 2 but they did not have the same material and sent me the chambray. The fabric is lovely, but I am swimming in a 2. Exchanging again would have been another expensive hassle so I'm making do. I had to get the pants hemmed and the non-pocket side taken in. It's fitting better now but I'm still really surprised by what a difference material/sizing up can do.
These are great for maternity since they grow with you. I bought 2 of these (one in chambray, the other in chili) after my first purchase a while back. Glad that I have 3 comfy pants to chose from. Easy to wear, my favorite is tied on the left side.
The Sideswept Dhoti + Chambray Teal
Whilst I like the Matter brand, its work with artisans, and the geometric prints, I own only a handful of their pants as the sizes tend to be on the larger side. I normally wear pants in size S and find Matter pants to be at least one size too big for me. I understand that the cut tends to be loose but even given this allowance, the pants tend to look oversized on me.
I'm of average height (less than 1.6m) and the loose cut combined with the length of the pants make me look bottom-heavy. I think the sideswept dhoti is more suited for people who are significantly taller than me.
