Fantastic everyday skirt! When you're looking for a black skirt online, it can be hard to sift through all the millions of choices. This one was a home run for me. The shape is flared enough to give it a little personality, without being too flouncy. And although I'm usually trying to hide my midsection, I liked how this style was fitted through the hips -- turned out to be much more flattering than I would have thought. By the way, if you like this shape but want something dressier, Zappos also has a great BCBG MaxAzria Ingrid A-Line skirt that's similar in style (just order up 1 size) but in a heavier, silkier fabric. Got them both and love them!

Great styling, fit (L) and length. The material and color are quality! Love the high neck for warmth. This is a great alternative to a regular, boring fleece vest.

This looks warm and comfortable in the picture, but the quality is very poor. I would compare the yarn to burlap -- thin and scratchy -- and there were holes where the knitting was coming apart. Shockingly bad for such an expensive sweater. Returned.

I love this coat! It is a good neutral with enough details to keep it interesting. I especially love that the pockets on the front have openings on the top and side (with a truly invisible zipper for the side opening).

I bought these shorts for a 3 week trip to Thailand. They are perfect: they dry quickly, the cut is flattering, and the pockets are well engineered. There are 2 angled pockets with velcro in the front, I felt safe with a few things in my pocket wandering around a busy market in Chiang Mai. I washed them in the hotel and hung them outside to dry- they dried fairly quickly. Sometimes shorts have side pockets that pop open or the back gapes and sits away from the body - because they are cut for someone who doesn't have a waist and hips. These shorts fit my waist and my hips and I was very pleased. I was a little nervous they might look matronly or middle aged, but they were great.

I absolutely love this sweater. I had a similar Royal Robbins cardigan for about 10 years and it's finally looking too pilled to wear. I love the wide collar and the interesting variegated yarn, and the side zipper is very modern. The only thing I don't love is that there is an extra layer of sweater in the front that lays underneath, which is the last place I need an extra layer as I'm trying to look thin. I would recommend sizing down if you're not sure what size to get. The yarn is tolerable but slightly itchy so I'll probably layer a long sleeved shirt underneath. For reference, I'm a 32C and 5'9" and I chose the XS. Going from the tag in the neck to the seam, it's 24" long in size S, and 23" long in the XS.

I've been wearing Royal Robbins shorts for years. They are clearly the best. It's disappointing that the color choices have diminished over these years; however, the quality has remained excellent.

The material and draping on this shirt was nice but the shirring at the midsection made me look a bit rounder in the tummy than I actually am (I'm 5'11", 170 lbs, 34DD with a fairly flat tummy). This may not be bad, as I had to size up to L for the bust/shoulder to fit well, so if you have a smaller bust and can go with a size that will fit better around the stomach, then I think this shirt will be quite flattering. I really liked the cowl neck and the dark red is a beautiful color.

These shorts fit great,but they seem to be irregulars. The inside seam was about an inch shorter than the outside seams.

I have worn Royal Robbins pants for years. I have always loved the high quality fabrics and sturdy construction. The RR styles have always been cute, unique, flattering and sensible. The fit has always been perfect -- I'm always the same size in RR. But this pant is a little different. I like the fabric -- a nice departure from denim or corduroy, and the shade of tan is just right. But the material is lighter gauge than I've come to expect from RR. The sizing is off -- for the first time I had to take a larger size only to find they were then a little large in the waist. The waist itself sits slightly lower than the usual RR cut. In fact the whole cut is a little too sexy for RR. I could have lived with these pants to this point, but then the deal breaker came: the leg openings are too flared. It's not so noticeable on the model and it's not mentioned in the description. I'm not really looking for flared legs, so I'm returning them. I wish I could redesign them a little.

Really disappointed in Royal Robbins and their changing sizes. I've noticed in the last 3 years some of their items match their size charts, and others are incredibly small, such as these pants - recommended to size up. These pants also are made of a fabric which things will stick to, so I am sending them back for too many reasons.

The fabric was gorgeous and very comfortable and the sizing seemed accurate. However, the asymmetrical neckline caused pulling at the left armpit area making it look tight only in that one location despite not actually being tight. Thus, I decided to return it. I hope to try another dress in this material and overall fit because it seemed like it would travel perfectly and be both comfortable and stylish.

I love these shorts! I am 5' 3" with a little waist and bigger hips, and the size 8 fit perfectly. Love the button-adjustable (a nice looking one) waistline. Great for anything...hiking, running around town - you can even wear them with a pretty top. I bought 5 pair. Did I say I love these shorts?

Love this skirt. Very comfy for travel. Color is just as pictured, a deep coral. I ordered an 8 and it fits well, could be a little snugger as the fabric stretches.

This is my fourth Discovery skirt. Every single time I wear them I am stopped and asked where I got it. They are cute and comfortable and easy to care for. Great for travel.

Okay so I only just tried this on, but I wanted to write an initial reaction review. I agonized for weeks over what size to get. I am usually around an 8 but sometimes I'm a 10, and sometimes a 6..I am 5'6 160 lbs and finally decided on the size 6. It fits perfectly! It hits about mid knee and is super comfy. My only complaint so far is that the light taupe color is a little more dull than I was expecting. The picture shows a little more of a yellow tone to it but it's actually pretty beige.

This jacket looked cute seen from the side, but seen from the front, the hip area flares out at an odd and unflattering angle. I'm returning it. It is very well made, however.

Decent material and construction, though not as heavy as expected. Good to find all-cotton shorts cut well above the knee. True to size, generous cut in leg.

These shorts are great! I like them so much I ordered a second pair. They are extremely comfortable, stylish and true to size. The fabric is lightweight and durable. There is no elastic in the waistband which is a plus in my opinion. Also the pockets are deep enough to actually be useful. Additionally the length is perfect for wearing with a climbing harness. I am very happy with both pair and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality as well as function.

I am a solid 12 and chose to follow the recommendation of other reviewers and order the size smaller. I love the skirt. I like the swishy bottom and feel so feminine when I wear it. I left a packet of vitamins in the pocket when I washed it and was horrified when I discovered the mark on my skirt. I put regular genial tide on the stain, soaked it in a bucket of tepid water, washed it and voila, clean! Great fabric.
