I'll be the first to admit I didn't pay the Lee brand the least notice until very recently. Their jeans never did much for me and I associated their fits with the dim recesses of the early 90s when my stylish cousins wore some very unstylish things. But consider me an advocate for their Flex Motion line, especially if you like rich colours and textures in your pants suitable to be worn around the office. Anything that comes in a long length deserves a second look, especially when it's not the ubiquitous black office pant, khaki office pant, or some dim variation in grey.
I absolutely loved these pants from the moment I saw them. The pattern in plaid isn't an obnoxiously large one, and as a girl with a long (35") insteam, I need something that won't overwhelm me when worn. This does the trick with a slightly metallic finish that doesn't become overpowering. I love the balance of crisp autumn shades and a shot of dark merlot in there to ensure a variety of shades go with this -- black, brown, russet, red, gold, you name it. Versatility and a flattering design that drapes on the figure counts for a great deal. These pants are perfect in their long length, hitting exactly where they need to be. No bending legs and flashing ankle or lower calf like a naughty Victorian lass. The fit is slimming without being snug, though I did order up a size from my standard and I'm glad that I did. The fabric has some degree of stretch and give, though
