pant 2 in silk noil (bleige)
This pant is part of a “mini formal capsule” that’s been swimming around my head for some time now. I imagined a few pieces in this dreamy silk noil that could be worn together to a more formal affair. Think about paring pant 2 and tank 1 together with a swipe of red lipstick, a vintage clutch and a pair of heels for a wedding. You can also dress these items down by mixing and matching with other Eli & Barry pieces (may I suggest anything striped?) The color of this silk lands somewhere between blush and beige (thus “bleige).
This is my own take on a wide leg pant, which I’ve been calling a “modern culotte” ever since I pattern drafted this style in the summer of 2017. I’ve been testing it in various fabrics and fits ever since and I’ve landed on the combination that I want: a loose fitting silhouette, lots of space in the hips, a straight leg throughout and made up in an incredibly drape-y fabric. This pant is the perfect counterpoint to pant 1.
A few notes of comparison between pant 1 and pant 2. Sizing is the same across the pants, meaning if you are an os 6 in pant 1, I recommend an os 6 in pant 2. With that being said, this pant has quite a bit more space in the hips than pant 1. That is the intended fit, especially when paired with the beautiful drape of this hemp organic cotton. I also suggest wearing this pant with the shorter inseam, as that gives it more of a culotte look.
Also available in a striped hemp organic cotton in “tea.”
As you might already know, I feature "open sizing" with my brand. This is my way of challenging our sizing norms and encouraging customers to choose a size that makes them feel good without judgement. These pants currently come in 16 sizes. There are two options for inseam lengths (23" or 25") and the rise measurement is 15". Keep in mind that because of the elastic waist band of these pants, there's some wiggle room between sizes. I wouldn’t suggest sizing up in this pant, but there is room to size down if you wish. I wouldn’t size down more than a single size, since you want plenty of space in the hips for the inseam pockets to lay nicely. The size guide below is a suggestion based on waist and hip measurement. As always, feel free to e-mail me with sizing questions. I'd be happy to help.
