American Apparel Zipper Pant ReviewI received my American Apparel zipper pants in the mail yesterday, so figured I may as well get a review underway since these pants are still fairly new to the AA collection.

I have the exact pair shown to the right on the model (medium gray).  The tapered leg fit is fantastic; I’m starting to love that cut more than the drainpipe! The zipper at the ankle was a nice touch, too (and almost necessary for putting these on!)

The stretch in the twill was almost too elastic; whether this was intentional or not I am unsure, but I personally prefer fabrics with a little less give that will keep shape.  If you’re got bigger legs you may want to avoid these, since they’re going to show every bump and curve.  Overall I was pleased with them, and the high waist was a nice change to the ultra low pant slut cut we’ve been used to having for sure.

I have these zipper jeans in black but is it just me or does anyone else’s zipper dig into the skin? it feels like something sharp is poking into your leg, it’s extremely uncomfortable.

Really? Mine don’t dig at all. I know many people size down when pants have heavy elasticity; pants that don’t fit right will definitely cause some ouch factor.

yes the zipper does hurt a little if you sit cross legged on the floor. which doesn’t really happen often enough for it to be a problem. I lOVE the fabric, its thick enough but stretchy enough and it makes me look 6 inches taller when i wear these pants with heels. yes the fabric can be revealing if you go too tight, better to get the size that actually fits. the fabric has terrific memory so its not an issue that they stretch out, i have 4 pairs of them and own them in all colors in case the next batch is different for some reason. get them before they’re gone!!!
