Downtown Trouser Pant Short Relaxed Fit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 231.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good value I bought these pants online during a recent sale. I was hoping to find a pair of black dress pants that fit well. I am 5" 5", 160 pounds. The 10 short length was fine but the trousers fit tighter through the stomach area than the uptown pant I bought at the same time in the same size, so for that reason I returned them to the store. Go one size up if you are used to the uptown fit. I would prefer if CJ Banks would rename their two pants, uptown and downtown because I find it confusing to remember which style is the one that fits well. I normally wear a 12 short in other brands, so while it is flattering to fit into a 10 short, I wish the sizing were more consistent between the two styles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the professional look better without wrinkles I have bought these pants many times over the years,but the past year it is extremely difficult to get the wrinkles out, so it takes longer to ever really feel like they cast a professional image. The material is rea;lly nice, just need to work on the wrinkle situation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit for my more curvy figure. I bought two more pair after my initial purchase because they are great for work, but also can wear them with a cashmere sweater for a more dressy occasion. Because I was able to purchase them in a short length, I can wear them right out of the package.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits perfectly I bought 2 pairs of Downtown Trousers in 8 short in a store in Kansas City in October. I love the fabric and the fit. I ordered this grey trouser in Dec. The fabric and pockets are not quite the same. Not as nice as the ones I got in October. I live in central CA and the closest store is many hours away so I am dependent on ordering on line. It is very nice to be able to try things on and also see the quality. I hate paying return costs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fit is good. Material is very disappointing. Washing and Ironing unable to remove wrinkles! I've had these pants before an were great. Unfortunately poor quality of material now. Will not reorder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants! I love this pant and ordered it in black and navy blue. It is dressier than the Uptown pant (I have several pair) with a wider leg and a softer feel to the fabric. I wish our local stores would carry this pant again but as long as I can still order on-line I am OK. This is the perfect pant for Holiday dressing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dressy Classic Fit Pant These Classic Fit Pants are so comfortable, that I've purchased all 4 colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fabric Quality is poor. I love how these pants fit. Once they have been cleaned, the fabric becomes limp and drapes poorly when being worn. For that reason, I would not recommend these pants. Also, I have them in every color. The quality is the same no matter what the color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a typical fit These pants were very tight in the waist and baggy in the hips and thighs. I have several pair of Downtown pants in classic fit but these did not measure up to the classic fit. Very disappointing. Classic fit should always have the same measurements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I am very happy with the fit and quality of these slacks. I order short and I am able to wear them with a flat and small heel. I am 5'4" 1-2.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice fabric The pants are very nice, the sizing is off. Unfortunately, I'll be returning these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short is too long Bought black, except the color is not as black as I would like. Looks brown in some lights. Front pockets are bulky not smooth. Too much fabric overlapping. Disappointed this was not available in store for over 3 months, so I ordered it online. Doubt I will do this again. Don't like the store anyway - too crowded and have to look through too many racks to not even find what I want. C and B has changed designs and fabric, not attractive any more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need more color selection in Downtown Trowser Love this style, always look professional but am frustrated, again. Where are the short or petite slacks in brown? I have been trying for 2 years to catch them and you have them but only in a size 8. Come on folks, we do wear other colors besides navy and black for work! Still waiting. Also I did not receive an incentive that I am aware of to post this review. I had to say I did to post it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit ! I am 5' 3 1/2" and weight ~155 pounds. I have trouble finding slacks that fit both my waist and my hips. These fit the bill---the elastic waist accommodates a range of sizes, and these slacks are sufficiently roomy. I am pleased to find that I can even wear a 12 (I often wear a 14, depending on the make). They wash up well. My only complaint is that I wish they came in more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for pear-shape figure. I have a hard time finding trousers that fit. These are the best I have found in years. I bought a pair in each color. The first navy pair was too short - in-seam was only 27.5 instead of 28. I returned them and re-ordered. The second pair was 28 and fit fine. The gray pair is a little snugger. I have not laundered any of them yet but I am hopeful that they will not shrink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable Dress Pants These are a standard in my wardrobe, and I usually order a pair every so I have a pair on reserve for special occasions-meetings. The look smart, and I love the way the pockets are made on this year's version. (My old downtown pants are used for everyday attire at school so this pair always looks awesome. This pair of pants goes with just about all my C&B navy coordinates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great pants They are a little higher on the waist than I prefer, but otherwise the fit is fantastic. I was looking around forever for a pair of navy pants that were dressy enough for work and these were perfect. They did not have the right size in the store, so these were shipped to my house for free. I usually have a problem with lots of pants gapping at the waist, and these do not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great material regular length was too long, petite's were too short. Bought the short length which fit fine when I tried them on but after washing and drying on low setting they shrunk and are now shorter than I like my pants to be. I have to were a belt as they are a little to big in the waist. I bought them in a size 4 which I normally wear a 6 or 8 depending on what brand I buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing is off Bought these on line. Bought the size I always wear in Christopher and Banks slacks, but this pair wasn't even close to fitting. I have another pair of the Donwtown Trouser Pants, in another color, and they are a great fit. Maybe this color is really off the mark. Will go to a store to see if they have the color I need and hopefully they will fit correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit. These will be a nice pair of casual to dressy pants. The quality of the fabric is very nice. The only problem that I had was the pair that I received in the mail must have been mis-marked. They were way to small. When I went to our local C&B store they were very helpful and I tried another pair on in the same size and the fit was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I buy 2 pair alike in case one wears out I love these slacks. The give in the waist is very comfortable but still looks tailored. Now if you would just make more colors like maybe a dark tan or a different shade of brown, and a wintery looking shade of grey. I have all four colors and doubles of three colors--I was afraid I would wear them out and not be able to find them any more!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice pants, pockets dissapointing. These pants work well with my singing uniform, except that the rear pockets are completely worthless. I end up carrying my small wallet in my jacket pocket which leaves little room for my uke pick! All the rear pockets can hold are a couple of cough drops! Active people do not have the luxury of carrying purses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the best pants Jeans I have ever bought I started shopping the C & B three years ago. The classic fit is perfect. I have lost weight and had to purchase new jeans and pants for C&B I love the new ones. I sold the old one at a yard sale the ladies knew the quality and paid the 20 bucks I was asking. Now I can buy more in my new aize. Cathy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product over and over again. I love the classic pants that I recently bought from you. I use these pants for dress pants and casual. They fit so well. I ordered the 12short. I am so glad to find Christopher and Banks for my needs. My daughter and I shop in your store and order on line. She got me started. I love your products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Downtown Trousers-Uptown class. C&B Downtown Trousers are my newest fav work-dress pants. These are incredibly comfortable. I don't like straight- skinny leg pants due to larger porportions in that area. These hang nice and look very professional and sophisticated. Bought 2 colors this time have 2 other colors previously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again & again I give these Downtown Trousers (Pant Short) 5 stars *****. I am rather hippy, am on a weight loss program...and these trousers fit so well and are very slimming. This is my 2nd purchase & I'm sure I'll buy more as my weight lessens. I absolutely love all products at Christopher & Banks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what was described Before, only "Signature" had the stretchy-but-still-buttoning waists. Apparently, my long-loved Trouser Pants now only come in pull-on, stretchy waist, or no-back-pockets. None of the three options are appealing to me. I miss the pants that brought me to shopping here in the first place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have bought this item in several colors. I wear these trousers all the time,as I have them in black, navy, gray, and brown. They fit well and don't have to be hemmed . They look nice with several jackets that I have. I also like that they fit at my natural waistline. I hope that C B continues to stock this item in the future.
