The updated fit of the Aspen joggers is just what my thighs need-- a little more room, not too much, while keeping the length. When you rule out synthetic fabrics and most jeans are too big in the waist if they fit your legs, pants options are seriously limited. I should've known Wool& would get it right.
The black joggers were so comfortable that I had to order the Marine blue joggers. My walking partner said they are quite flattering. All I know is they are comfortable, have deep pockets for my phone and do well in winter Colorado weather for me to walk dogs. I purchased the large because I prefer loose fit and it is perfect.
I really like these pants. The weight is excellent, they don't appear to pill, and they're comfy. They are almost perfect. I rated it at 4 instead of 5 only because the waist seems really high. Like immensely so, and that's coming from someone who likes high-waisted pants. Perhaps I could have sized down, and it wouldn't be an issue. The waistband is comfy, though, so I kept them. The pockets also seem to be too high, but maybe it's because of the high waist (or the wrong size)? Spendy, but the quality seems good. Definitely won't buy another pair until I know how these will hold up over time and washings. My other lounge pants are Patagonia which I have a love/hate relationship with (comfy, good pockets, but too short and wear out too quickly). These appear much better quality so I hope they last.
Once I put them on I didn’t want to take them off. They are long in the leg (I am short) but not ridiculously so. The fabric is not heavy, so I may actually be able to wear them year round (if I don’t wear them out first). I had been worried that they might be low rise or just generally short between the crotch and waist, but they are not - they’re perfect. I do wish they were a higher proportion wool. I have a pair from a different not company, which I also like, but theirs feel and look more like sweat pants. These are a bit dressier, so I may try them with boots for an “in town” look.
I got a gray Aspen jogger when they first came out, and liked it enough that I wanted a black pair. The new, more relaxed fit is both more comfortable and more flattering. Excellent change for the better!
