Size Guide


Even if you don’t think of yourself as the knit pant wearing type, you may want to include just one pair in your minimalist Forever in Fashion wardrobe – this is that pair. As comfy as loungewear, but with enough refinement to be practically incognito as a woven dress pant. The organic French terry fabric is extraordinarily comfortable, smooth, and gently draping. We obsessed over every inch to achieve the perfect flat-lying elastic waist panel and straight leg cut. 

  • 97% organic Pima cotton, 3% spandex French terry
  • The hint of spandex allows the pants to keep their shape and prevent bagging at the knees
  • Machine wash
  • Uber-comfortable flat-lying waistband with elastic
  • 31-inch inseam (size Medium)
  • 17.5-inch leg opening (size Medium)
  • Fairly made in Lima, Peru
Fair Indigo Premium Fabrics
Peruvian Pima cotton is among the softest yet strongest on earth – your pants will endure beautifully for years with minimal pilling or shrinking. Our organic French terry fabric is washed before the garment is sewn, an uncommon but very beneficial process. It not only insures your pants won’t shrink, but also prevents twisting and puckering around seams that often happens in your dryer when fabric shrinks but threads don’t.
How does it do good?
Our non-GMO organic cotton is grown on a small family farm in the climactically perfect Ica region of Peru. It’s then milled and knit in GOTS certified mills that are leaders in water recycling. Our dyes are Oeko-tex certified - gentle on the earth, farmers, garment workers, and you. The pants are meticulously fashioned in a small fair trade workshop where employees are paid fairly and treated, like family, with dignity and respect.

Soft, casual - love the ocean blue
Love these pants, they are soft and casual. I do not wear them for work as they look like very nice sweat pants. I will buying two more pairs. They run large as all Fair Indigo does for me. They were a 1.5 inches too long, but I decided not to hem them. I'm glad that I didn't as they continued to shrink over several wash & dries (per instructions) and are now the perfect length for me.

Comfortable pants
These are nice comfortable pants. However, they are too long and need to be shortened if you are 5’ 4”. The brown is a good color and can be worn to work. I wish Fair Indigo would make them with pockets.

Latest Order of the Black, lint magnet!
I just received my 4th and 5th pair of these pants. The blue I had ordered before faded quickly, which was a bummer, it no longer looks nice enough to wear to work. It faded after only about 6 washings. The black still looks good and I wear all the time just needed more since I don't do the wash as often as I should. I just ordered 2 more pair of black, and for some reason these are lint magnets. I am rollering the pants all the time. I really hope that improves after a few washings... not real professional looking with lint all over them.

I'd worn out my several pairs of yoga pants and didn't know how I'd replace them. Actually, I never wore them for yoga, but they were my go-to casual pants. When I saw these knitted pants in the Fair Indigo catalog, my heart skipped a beat. I hopped online and ordered two pairs in black and they were (and are) so perfect that I ordered another two pairs, also in black (who was it who said "until they come up with a darker color"? I am 5'4" 112 pounds, and bought the size small. I needed to have them hemmed about an inch but they're otherwise perfect. In fact, they're the best pants I've ever worn because they are so comfortable and because they are more fashionable than the yoga pants. If I were still working, I would wear them to work. I hope they keep making these because I want to wear this style the rest of my life.

Excellent quality and comfort
Extremely comfortable. Good for business casual. Nice and long for taller folks. Soft, durable and wash well.

Professional meet comfortable. Will buy again.
These pants are so comfortable but they look professional too. I am a preschool teacher and these pants are perfect for my work. I am 5'4" and wear a size small and they were a little long when I wore them with flats so I got them hemmed and now the pants are perfect. I bought them in black and dark chocolate and will be buying them in dark ocean too.

Fits well and true to size
True to size and well made. I am 5'7" and usually wear a small, and the small fits well. Very soft fabric, comfortable, great for traveling. I ordered these in the chocolate brown and just ordered the burgundy, too. I had ordered the blue a year ago, and the color faded a little, but I still wear them. Love that they're organic and fair trade!

Comfortable and dressy
I've finally found comfortable fair trade dress pants that fit me! I purchased size M (I'm almost 5"7", 120 lbs). Just wish they were a half inch longer, but will work fine with my flat shoes. Hope that you make this style in corduroy for casual wear this fall.

Love it!
Very comfortable great looking pant! Has the feel of a lounging pant with the look of a dressy pant for work.

My most comfortable pants
Super soft, they wear nicely to work, I am 5'6" and still needed to hem the bottom of the mediums so they wouldn't drag on the ground so the length is great. I came to buy more, but no mediums or in stock. As soon as possible, I will buy more.

Longer inseam?
I love your products, and I have the skirt in this material. I just wish you made the pants with a longer inseam for us taller gals.
