Express Editor Pants- Reviews?

Anyone wear Express Editors? Just looking for some reviews.
How do they wash? Are they true to size?

I usually only wear VS pants- I need long lengths. But lately I have had 2 pairs that shrunk and faded like CRAZY! I washed them in cold water and line dried them- even used Woolite Dark.
They literally look like a rag after ONE wash! They faded like 3 shades and shrunk to floods on me!
I am very aggrevated with them- since they aren't cheap pants.
I would expect them to hold up much better after ONE careful wash.

So I'm on the hunt for new pants that come in long and I think I heard good things about these.

Any reviews would be great! TIA!

I like them a lot, though I dry clean them instead of washing them myself.

A friend at work gave me a tip - you can find them, new with tags, never worn, on ebay for half the price Chat Icon

I used to love these when I was working. I dry-cleaned them though, so I'm not sure how they wash.

I have one pair and I plan to buy more. I wash mine and I havent found any stretching or discoloration but I feel like the texture of the pants are different.



I agree, although I do love them. When I used to dry clean them I didn't get that problem. I have about 5 pair I use for work. They really are the only dress pant I like.

Those were the only pants I wore when I worked. They have 3 different materials so I think that is why some are saying they wash at home and some dry clean.
I am a SAHM now and after 2 kids the pants aren't doing it for me, I actually inbetween 2 sizes.

I have 7 pairs. I LOVE them and wear them most everyday. I dry clean them. I do not find they shrink. I find they run big & I have to hem them.

Big in the length is good because I'm an Amazon! And forget it if I want to wear a heel!
I am thinking I should probably invest in dry cleaning them too- I don't think any black pants hold up well to washing- no matter what you do... I was just annoyed that the VS ones looked like absolute Sh!t after only ONE wash....

Re: Express Editor Pants- Reviews?

loooooooooooooooovvvvve them!

Although the black pair seems to have pilled a bit, that's my only complaint.
I have 5 pairs, wear them every week.

Dry clean them if you can
