I like the weight of this pant and how it's a lighter, sateen twill. It looks great in person and is very chic. Fit-wise, I found my regular size to be a bit small, so I went up a size. They are also fairly cropped and hit me right above the ankle (very similar to how they hit the model in the photo) so I think they tend to look better with heels. Since this is a bit more of a streamlined look over the Houlihan, I think they're a lot more flattering.
