I have resisted from buying printed pants for the longest time. When I did warm up to the idea, I couldn’t find any that were within the price point I’d like to pay or those within my budget were ill-fitting. I first spotted these Banana Republic Hampton cropped pants a few months back and went to the store to try them without much expectations. To my surprise, they fit my straight/boyish figure pretty well and the material was thick and comfortable. Since I’m not one to purchase items at full price, I waited for it to go on sale while checking in on my size online every so often. Nope, no sale and my size has sold out. Since BR often has promotions, I decided to take the plunge and hunted down a pair in my size and had them put it on hold since I couldn’t get to the store till after work while I purchased a size bigger during the promotion at the store near work (it was 40% off for a power lunch sale that’s only 3 hours). And so I caved, and here are my first pair of printed pants (even if they were more than what I’d like to pay for but no matter since they fit well!) I do want to note that not all Hampton cropped pants fit the same since I tried on a few different prints and none of them actually fit as well as the ones I bought, i.e. looser fit.

Will these be my last pair of printed pants? Nope. I did purchase another pair from The Limited but I’m still on the fence about it. Perhaps I’ll post a picture of it this weekend to get some opinions on the fit. How many pairs of printed pants do you have? 😉
