I ordered these pants in the black color. They are actually not black but a greyish brown. I don't like pure dark black as it is rather severe looking. This is a more interesting shade, so I am very happy that they are not true black. The material is high quality and substantial, with adequate stretch, and comfort. The material is not light, so I think this will make a great pant for wearing in the spring and fall. The pockets both in the front and back and the V notch in the back are nice details setting these pants apart from the ordinary. I would say they run true to size. I am a 2-4 in most pants from most manufacturers, and the size 2 petite in these pants fit me perfectly. I am 5' 100 lbs. I am appreciate that MK makes a range of sizes, and has pants in different lengths. They fit me and look just as good as they look on the model, and I am no model. So I would say the fit and cut is very flattering .They are smart looking and tailored, and can be worn to work. I think MK lived up to their name with this khakis pant. I like these pants so much, I have ordered them in the other other color as well. Although I wear skinny and straight pants as well, bootcut is by far my favorite cut and am glad that MK still makes some bootcut pants.
