SLINKY BRAND PONTE KNIT 439-925 ZERO STARS
This is somewhat confusing but I thought I should post this anyway! I purchased 2 separate orders for the above pant (s). The reason I ordered twice is I was unsure of my size, so the first pair was a small, they were slightly too big and the second time I ordered (a few days later) I got an extra small, and they fit fine. Regardless of what they were called they are ponte, harem pants with pockets on the side, identical to the pants being sold today that are called harem pants with pockets 467-470.
It is now 6 months later I have worn the black (extra small) twice and the grey (small) about 6 times. I don’t usually wear a pair of slacks more than twice before I launder. I can’t say that I over-laundered them but I can say, that almost immediately they began to "pill", the elastic in the waist band rolled over and over and is so twisted that it makes the pants uncomfortable to wear. The band does not seem to been stitched properly! In other words DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY. This is the first and only item purchased from HSN (and many Slinky items) that is just not worth buying. I noticed that there are other patterns (with other assigned order numbers) but to me they appear to be the SAME PANT. Just thought I should warn other shoppers. PS I did not "review" this item, I should have.
What a bummer! Typically, they last way beyond just a couple washings and are supposed to be comfortable, the major reason we buy them to begin with! How unpleasant.
