i think this is a good way to get used to wearing bright colors, by wearing it for layering purposes…i’m taking baby steps here..=). btw, i love the pants..but the zipper annoys the hell out of me..it just won’t stay up for more than a few minutes and whenever i sit down, it gives enough pressure for it to slowly make its way down, it won’t grab to its teeth somehow. i don’t think it’s a case of a bad fit though, cause the fit is perfect, not too small and not too big. maybe it’s just bad quality zipper or just badly constructed. oh well, either way i probably need to take it to the alteration to change the zipper.
