You know we love a good "what if?" And while we're denim fans, we had to ask ourselves: what if we could combine the style and detailing of great denim, but the stretch and comfort of, say, a pair of Rogas? Being the crazy birds we are, we got to work. We tested 'em, fit 'em, tweaked 'em just right - and put these new fangled workout jeans into the line up. Step in and step out! Because Roga fabric has lots of body, they feel substantial. And because it also has lots of stretch, they feel like super pants, able to move, stretch, and even take the swass, so you can keep flying.
- Roga Stretch Woven (polyester / spandex)
- two front hand pockets
- two rear pockets
- front button + zipper closure
- 27" inseam (size small)
Like many, I wanted to love these, but the unforgiving waist is uncomfortable. I’m 133 lbs and 5’5” and ordered a size 6. Everything else fit fine, so I fear a size up would be too baggy in the bum and legs. I wear these unbuttoned most days.
The waist is kinda tight but I simply love these jeans. They are so so comfy and look professional. I wear them to work all the time. I thought they would be too cold but they really do keep in heat well for the colder spring days. I started with a medium but realized the waist was a little too big and went to a small and that fits great. I even bought a second pair of black one for later. Usually a size 4-6. 5’7” 140. Longer torso.
I really wanted to like these...I was hoping Oiselle would help me avoid the headache of shopping for jeans and pants to wear to work!
Unfortunately the fit just didn't work, and I couldn't justify keeping them at this price point. I'm 5'2 and 122 lbs, with a narrow waist and hips and powerful cyclist quads and calves. The small was loose in the waist, hips, and butt; there was extra fabric that sagged off my butt and bunched awkwardly around the front rise and hips. Meanwhile, the legs fit quite tightly, so I couldn't size down.
I loved the look of the embossed roga fabric. Unfortunately the single layer of fabric felt too thin and flimsy, especially for pants that cost this much. I would've liked a more structured and slightly wider waistband too.
Hoping that Oiselle will rework the fit, sizing, and fabric texture on these so that I can give them another try!
I wanted to love these pants. I was so excited when they came out! I ultimately ended up returning them. I thought the waist was okay, but there was too much fabric in two areas: the crotch area and the area between my knee and my mid-calf. No amount of pulling them up / using a belt / etc would make it so that the extra fabric in the crotch area didn't look... weird. The pants were slim fitting in my legs, until they reached my knees - then there was sort of a balloon of fabric until my mid-calf. I've never had this problem with pants of any type before. I have pretty standard runner legs. Super bummed.
I was really excited about these pants. I like the high waist since they can be used for cycling without any worries, they look great - I can wear them to work - and the feel/stretch is amazing. However, the fabric isn't durable. I have only had these pants for a couple of months and they already have threads pulling out from simple things like setting my backpack on my lap. Given the price, it's disappointing, especially since I love everything else about the pants. It's just such a bummer that one of the thighs already looks messed up.
And yes, buy a size up on these. The waist has no give which is okay if you plan for that... but be sure to. I usually get a 2 but got a 4 in these.
So excited to get these and the material feels so light and it's stretchy! But the waist, oh man, there is no give. It's a high waist so on a full stomach day these are not the most comfortable. Just confused why there is no stretch in the waist. Luckily the length fits me well.
I bought these pants to wear on a multi-month bike tour, and I love the material. They're light, stretchy and packable. And the higher rise makes it easier to sit on the bike without potential crack exposure!
But I'm pretty disappointed with the waistband. It's super tight, especially when I sit down or relax my abs. I'd prefer more stretch in the waist to move around better. If you had a teeny waist, they'd probably fit really well. But I like the material so much that I'm going to let them out a bit with my sewing machine.
For the record, I'm 5'2, 120 lbs.
I was SO excited when these came out. I bought both the small and the medium after watching the Instagram promo videos. Unfortunately the reviews were right- the small fit my legs so well but the high waisted top--while super stylish--was so disproportionally tight that the small didn't work. The medium waist was perfect, but the legs were too big and looked sloppy on me. I sadly had to return both. If there's ever a reboot where the waist is made a bit larger, I'm in.
I'm 5'4" and the length was perfect; I'm 140lb and I usually wear a small in all Oiselle running tights.
