My cold weather solution II: Theory ima suede pants, Vera Wang boots and fur vest

Theory ima stretch suede leggings (RED here , DARK BROWN here)
After being spoiled by the Theory ima leather pants (as a previous post here) for continuous three days, I decided to invest another pair, the dark brown stretch suede. You can definitely feel the difference (the penetration of the cold and wind) between leather pants and thick jeans. Price wise, these suede leggings are on sale at $171 in Theory outlet stores now, which is actually similar as full price jeans.

I was asked about the size of the leather leggings by Theory. Though SAs / websites suggest size down to get a better fit, I sized up for both pairs. I tried size 00, 0, 2 and 4. To my surprise, I can wear all of these sizes! Size 00 is tight on me like leggings, but still comfy. Size 4 is slightly wide for my thigh and waist, but doesn't look odd or slipper down. Leather (especially suede) is normally stretched out overtime, I feel size 0 and 2 should be similar on me eventually. Unless you want a pair of body-hugging leggings, you may not want to size down for this particular style. There are 5 choice for this style in the outlet stores: black leather ($417), grey leather ($171), cognac (deep brown-purplish, $171), dark chocolate / brown suede and black suede ($171). The black suede ones are my last choice, which look more like velvet than leather. In addition, black suede or leather pants could be picky for boots in winter days, though they are stylish with pumps with no doubt. If you plan to buy these leather pants, you may want to consider the color and size carefully given they are finale sales.
These suede pants are versatile, in winter and spring... Thank you for your reading!
