I do really like these trousers but I had a pair of the old design of the Addisons which were a little looser in the leg and didn’t have the elasticated waist - I loved them even more. L&Y trousers are great value for money though and last really well.
I love the jeans and how they look on me, but they are unfortunately a bit tight on my waist. I also own Delores Wide-Leg Jeans in the same size but I don't have a problem with those (I wear them with a belt). I will probably buy another pair and size up but I am afraid they will be too big on the hips and other parts where they fit me perfectly with this size.
I have the older version and I love it ! I wear them for a few years now and they're still good (my jeans often wear off between the legs and the Addison don't). I wish the waist was a bit lower but I think the newer version is a little bit "lower" waist so it's not an issue (I have the Addison with big flower which is perfect). They're good on the waist and roomy on the legs (I have big thighs) so very confortable for a lot of situations. They don't stick on the legs in warmer weather. Got them in 36, the measurement were pretty good for me.
J'ai l'ancienne version et c'est un de mes jean préféré ! Je l'ai porté en continu pendant plusieurs mois et j'ai la paire depuis 2-3 ans maintenant et le jean est toujours en bon état (à part la ceinture qui s'est un peu décousu a un endroit mai ce n'est pas gênant). J'ai souvent les jeans qui se trouent dû au frottement entre les jambes mais pas ici ! Mon seul soucis serait qu'il est légèrement trop taille haute pour moi, 1-2 cm plus bas serait parfait mais je crois que la nouvelle version avec élastiques est mieux (j'ai celui a grosses fleurs et il tombe parfaitement). Il sert bien la taille mais est bien large sans l'être trop aux jambes donc vraiment agréable en toute situation, il ne "colle" pas aux jambes quand il fait un peu chaud (sensation que je déteste avec un jean). Je l'ai pris en 36 pour mon 44, les mesures du site étaient assez fidèles.
Though I ordered slightly too big (my fault) they still actually fit fairly well and I would love them if it weren't for the material. It feels fine for when you first put them on but then begins to chafe horribly around the hips and thighs. I've even developed sores! And this wasn't from hiking, just a day walking to the shops and around the house so it's pretty extreme. A real shame, especially given the price. I saw an earlier review saying the same with a suggestion from L&Y to wash them inside out to soften the inseams but it's not the inseams, it's the material itself.
Thanks for reaching out and leaving us a review, we really appreciate it. Sorry to hear these aren't comfortable and are causing you to chafe, definitely not the desired feeling we want on these. Because they are quite high waisted, if they are worn a bit lower, it can sometimes do that because of the dropped crotch effect it has. If you aren't happy wit these, please get in touch. We will respond to you by email as well, and we can go from there.
Love these! The elastic makes them super comfy, and they have flattering look. They do pick up a lot of fluff and I do find the legs are quite baggy compared to the waist.
