HOW TO STYLE IT
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dano from Ok but not great Needed work pants- real pants not an elasticized pull on pant(why is it so hard to find real dress pants these days?) Insettled for these due to lack of options. They are high waisted which is ok, but then for some reason they’ve installed a giant elastic panel on the inside waist band- it’s probably four inches- like maternity pants! Why?? Also worth noting- I’m 5’7” and all legs…. I bought the “short” as the regular length would have been dragging on the floor in heels. Crazy! The Ponte holds its shape so far, which is good. These are very stretchy though which makes them less dressy/professional looking. Dear Rickis and all others - please make real pants again! Enough with pseudo legging pants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nena78 from Bootcut is back! I am so happy to have found this pair of bootcut pants, reminiscent of Ricki's styles several years ago (before all the skinnies and joggers). The wide waistband is flattering, the material is comfortable, machine-washable, and drapes well, and the bootcut is flattering. I agree with other reviewers that these pants tend to the long-ish side. I bought regular-length (as I usually do), and they do seem longer than normal. With a low heel, the regular length will work on me, and I am 5'6". The rise is higher, but I like it. These pants will stay up. Thank you Ricki's, for bringing back bootcut dress pants for us longtime Ricki's shoppers. Now how these pants in some other neutral colours?

Rated 5 out of 5 by lmowsworld from Finally - a return to "real dress pants' Now that I'm no longer working from home and my pre-pandemic dress pants no longer fit, I was in search of a pant that would fit well, drape nicely, and have a nice weight to them. These checked all the boxes. They're high-waisted but still comforttable, and not a legging. They're perfect for the office and I'm already hoping they come in more colours and patterns. I've got short legs and a curvy bottom (hips, thighs, and calves), so finding a pant that both fits me and feels good is like finding a needle in a hay stack.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Katie112 from Mehh It is so hard these days to find reasonably priced, normal fitting bootcut black dress pants (for work). I was so happy to see these untill i get them and they fit like highrise pants. Super disappointing. What happened to regular fitting pants that sit on the hip? Not all body types look or feel comfortable in high-rise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darla Joy from Best pants ever!!! I bought these in my normal size and they fit perfect except for the length. I normally wear regular length and had to go with short length in these. Sales clerk told me usually the bootcuts run longer in length. These truly are the best pants ever. I have to wear black pants everyday to work and these are amazing. Very flattering. I usually wait for things to go on sale but I didn't mind paying full price for these. The quality an fit is amazing. I bought three pairs and they wear very well

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheresaSadler from Pants that ACTUALLY fit me! I can not shout out enough how excited I am that I found these pants. I am a 6' tall woman, that is ALL leg. It's not all it's cracked up to be. I have struggled for years, (I am 40), to find a pair of pants offered over 34" inseam. The length these pants are, well perfect. With the quality of material and offered at a reasonable price, I am a new customer of Ricki’s! Keep the length options coming!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dee888 from Nice work pants These pants are so flattering for my petite curvy hourglass figure. Ponte is such a flattering material that feels thick and drapes well. They are fitted through the thigh and have a baby bootcut. I purchased my usual size 10 short and found the waist to be a bit loose but would work with a belt. Short inseam is perfect for me at 5’4”. Not a huge fan of the waist band because it is so thick and has 2 buttons and 3 hook and eye closures. I will say that the pull on ponte pants that rickis had in years past are superior because they are smooth under shirts and shape like they have built in shapewear. Please bring back the pull on ponte pants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Back from the brink from Email me when they come in other colours The most comfortable, not pain inducing (pinched bellies or hip flexors angers your hips), decent-looking business casual pants I've bought in I don't know how many years. AND available in short (30" inseam). Please make them I more colours including in short. I deserve more than black or black.
