I saw these pants first on the PrAna website in their spring catalog, I ordered them from Moosejaw because, well, your website is hilarious and I like it. I chose the black pair because i tend to spill spaghetti sauce on anything that is white :-( According to the size chart I needed a size Small...this proved to be an incorrect choice. These pants run VERY large...believe me, I don't wear XS, ever...I wish I did, but alas, I don't. I normally wear a size 4/6. I had to send these back and order and XS. They're beautiful, well made, seem like they will last, unique and just plain awesome :-) I highly recommend these, though if I were you, I'd size down.
