I bought these for the husband for Christmas. He couldn't even pull them over his knees. My husband is athletic--6 feet tall/180, a runner...and these very much are a slim fit in both our opinions. If you're super thin, they'll work...if you're a regular joe-shmoe going for that "women's jeans" kind of look--then these are the pants for you. If you're a regular joe-shmoe looking for a relaxed fit, look elsewhere.
