Not a good fit. I bought a pair and the legs were very baggy.

Lulu is worth every penny
Are there different styles? Different fits?
  Can you post a link for the pants you're referring to?

Not even close. Durability is far inferior for starters.


Can I become a partner in your business?  ;)
You know you're always welcome. ;D

There are really only 2 that would fit what we are describing in this thread. There are commissions, and ABCs. Both are the exact same fit and feel, but the ABCs are jean style (not material, just style) where pockets are in the front and back pockets are more defined. The Commissions are more of a dress style with the side pockets and more subtle back pockets. Both have a Skinny, Slim, Classic, and Relaxed fit.

Read the whole thread. What’s the outcome here? No real alternatives to the $130 lululemons?
If you are trying to get my attention/assistance and I'm not responding, please feel free to PM me. :)

Can you elaborate on what's so special about them that it warrants this exorbitant price tag??
It is 100% Polyester after all... pretty inferior quality
I would also add that if you generally send your dress pants to the cleaners, Lulus can be washed in a machine at home.  There's an immediate savings and ROI just in that...

Yes bc they're 100% Polyester. 100% wool you can't do that with. Still doesn't justify why one would pay 3x-4x more for it.

Not looking to convert you to lulus, but if you're paying $40-50 for a pair of decent wool pants that likely need to get tailored and dry cleaned periodically, spending $120 on a pair of pants that fit like a glove, are mega comfortable, machine washable and reasonably stylish isn't so outlandish...

They are very comfortable. You can actually breath in their pants.

 Tried one on for fit and I was amazed.
    A regular pair of dress pants is so uncomfortable.

 I'm thinking to buy some of these just for the comfort it has to offer while still retaining the dressy look.

  While I heard "His Place" in Lakewood has some pants selling for $50 or so, which also has a nice dressy look which is stretchy as well.
 Have to check that out.

100% spot on. I can fold them and put them in my drawer and not bother hanging them up every use, as the material happens to be "wrinkle free" in a sense. Saving a couple buck on the cleaners adds up, and the fact that they hem for free is nice. I've purchased plenty of dress pants that needed $10-$30 in work done (to be fair, my sizing is unique) and that's after paying $20-$50 for the pants to begin with. I get my Lulus heavily discounted personally and may have a few pairs to sell here (both new & lightly used). Unfortunately I can't get them in bulk but if I ever do, I'll post here.

I think the exorbitant price tag plays a heavy role here. How would you get them heavily discounted? They don't seem to go on sale too often. No one has discussed the quality exactly being they're 100% Polyester. I was always under the impression Polyester was on the lower end when it comes to fabrics with Wool, Cotton, anything else being better. If they were the same price as say BR Traveler Cotton Pants, that would be one thing. but they are about 3x that price. I have never tried them on but want to see the light

Do they have any work from home options?
Sorry if I ask so many questions, but life is short and there is so much to learn! Let's help each other be great!

You sure about that? AFAIK it's 20% for all employees.
