As I mentioned on the blog, my very first purchase of clothing with my own money included a pair of Stewart plaid wide leg pants, cuffed at the bottoms. Oh, how I loved them. I even duplicated in a bright red plaid (and wore both pair of pants constantly).
At the moment, my plaids are more sedate, but I would happily spring for a brighter pair if I find the right ones.
These culottes are now almost in the OBG category...as evidenced by Roxanna's recent threads, J. Crew sometimes comes through with interesting, slightly fashion forward items (for the time) in very high quality wool.
These pants date from 2016. Angie mentioned these in a post at the time they were released but I think I was the only forum member to buy them? People objected to the pleats and wide leg at the time....I mean for themselves....and also the high waist.
Admittedly, they are a lot of pant -- but in this calm glen plaid I don't find them too much at all.
Anyway...I still love them. Beautiful drape, lovely fabric, comfy. I wasn't able to wear them as much as I might have wished back in Ontario, where I bought them -- the wide legs meant the cold wind whipped up my legs, and long undies felt bulky underneath and too hot. In my current climate, they are plenty warm for much of the winter with knee highs.
I also bought the blue sweater at the same time. Another real winner that got very mixed reviews at the time...(I don't mean on me, I mean from J. Crew customers, who didn't like how short it is.)
