I've been wearing them low off the hips.I had to size up from M to L on the double knees but even if I went TTS the fit on these confuses me. Would appreciate input from Antonio / anyone else. They feel huge in the waist (yes yes, belt solves all) but the inseam feels short (and I have short legs!). Do I wear these at my natural waist (since they're high rise) and basically show ankle, or on my hips? Cuff? Puddle? Big shoes only? I really want to hang on to these but I'm having a hard time accepting a fit.
I also received my Eide cords today. I have already washed cold and tumble dry on low and there was minimal if any shrinkage.Just got the cord Eides, tried them on quickly, and took a waist measurement. I went with the same size as the Molloy tweed version (L). The waist is in line with the size chart: 33". The waist of the tweed version is 34.5", but they've probably stretched some with wear. Since they sit above the hips because of the rise anyway, I found the cords comfortable.
The inseam of the cord version is shorter than the tweed, which is better for me.
The fabric is a warmer tone than I expected based on the photos but not a significant difference. It's also quite soft.
Now my only dilemma is whether to throw them in the dryer, since I'd like them to stay as they are.
