How Do I Determine My Size?

We recommend a general body measurement guide to determine your size in Ibex clothing. This sizing chart is not garment specific, but in fact a body measurement chart. Here are some helpful hints when measuring:

Bust/Chest: relax arms at sides, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, measure the fullest part of your bust/chest
Waist: keeping the measuring tape comfortably loose, measure around your natural waistline
Hips: standing with heels together, keep the tape straight and parallel to the floor, measure around the fullest part of hips
Sleeve Length: a 3-point measurement, standing with arms relaxed and slightly bent at sides, measure from the base of the neck to the shoulder and then from the shoulder to the wrist bone, add together measurements
Form-fit: garment designed to fit snug to the body throughout
Semi-fit: garment will be contoured to the body
Regular-fit: garment will not be slim, but also not oversized
Relaxed-fit: garment drapes loosely on body

Still need help determining your size? Call 800.773.9647 or email us at info@ibex.com for specific garment measurements.

I live in a cold climate and wanted some warm wool easy to wear and maintain pants and after reading other reviews about these pants I ordered one pair and am already ordering 2 more, they are warm, comfortable and fit perfectly.
Guest S on Nov 20, 2015
I chose this because I ordered these pants in 2013 and they are great--very comfortable and they fit well.

I hope I didn't order the orange color! I ordered the gray tights for all around wear hoping they are as comfortable as tights.

I've been wearing a pair of very similar Ibex pants for a couple of years, and LOVE them. They wash well, are flattering, and warm. II'm not ready to retire the ones I have, but need some variety.

I like the new colors and I am a big fan of the tavern pant - wear them all winter in New England.
Moogi on Oct 21, 2015
I love my old tavern pants. Substantial fabric. A bit conforming for an old girl like me, but with longer jackets and shirts it can be becoming. Really comfortable.
Helen W on Oct 20, 2015
Needed a well fitting leg pant that is also very warm.

Am hoping these will go well for dressier dinners and outings while traveling.
Guest S on Oct 10, 2015
Love the fabric of the Izzi pant, but the cut doesn't quite work for me - hoping these will be the ones.
Guest S on Oct 8, 2015
Because I love wool and have been very pleased with the quality and durability of past purchases.

It looks really comfy and I love the color
Guest S on Sep 23, 2015
Awesome fit! Great for workouts or going out to dinner - very versatile!
Kasey K on Sep 22, 2015
I love the Ibex leggings I do have...the Woolies 150 and a heavy weight, cold weather running pant/legging. They're both vert versatile...and black. So this fall, I want to try a new legging color and something that I can wear by itself and with calf-high boots.

I'm 5'1" and have a 27-28" inseam so would have to shorten these. Can this fabric be cut and hemmed?
Nancy S on Sep 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, whenever I have needed to shorten Ibex pants, I have brought them to a tailor without a problem. However, I am roughly your measurements, but I found I did not need to shorten Tavern pants because they are a narrow fit.
i am 5'7" 135 lb. mostly size 27 jeans usually 2 or 4 in bottoms. Which size do u recommend?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought a size up for the following reasons. Hope it will help you make a decision. I wear them slightly looser towards a narrow pant rather than as a legging. The smaller size will feel like a legging or really thick long underwear. That is essentially the difference. More comfortable at my age. I am 5'6'' and weigh 140#.
Do these pants hold their shape? I have the izzi pants and while they are my favorites right out of the wash they quickly get unflatteringly baggy and too long if I try to wear them 2x or more, I actually have to dryer them(which I never do with my ibex) to get them perfect again after wearing.
Heide B on Oct 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I haven't had a problem with these pants holding their shape and I'm able to wear them several times before washing. They fit like leggings, I.e. pretty form fitting. I would definitively buy them again. Super comfortable and cozy. Great weekend pant.
I am 5'9 and 120 lbs. would a small work? The small skirt fits perfect.
Peggy L on Oct 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello, Thank you all for your comments and questions.

I am a customer relations representative here at Ibex. I am 5'7" and around 130-135 lbs. I would order these in a size small. I have the energy free tights, that are essentially the same pant, just sportier, and I have small. I also have the skirt in a small. No problems. I love this fabric.

Please also keep in mind that we do have a 60 day return policy, so if you needed to exchange for another size, it shouldn't be an issue.
What are the differences in fit between the Izzi Tavern and the Crossroad pants?
A shopper on Nov 24, 2015
W's Izzi Tavern Pant
W's Izzi Tavern Pant
W's Cross Road Pant
W's Cross Road Pant
BEST ANSWER: the tavern pant has spandex and nylon so more stretch and bend. the fabric and fit are much more fitted and snug. the cross road pant is a great everyday 100% merino pant - can be casual or dressy. the tavern pant is great under a skirt or long top or for activity.
Are these the same as the old tavern pant?
A shopper on Sep 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sorry about the delayed response to your question...I have been traveling. The pair I ordered last fall was my first pair and I wore them all the time. They are a nice weight and they fit perfectly and washed well.
Can I back order a size small?
cynthia j on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they run quite large. Ibex does listen to customer feedback so maybe we can get them cut a full size or two smaller. They would still fit over layers. My XSs are too big: require two layers underneath.
Does the tavern pant have the same cut in the leg as the tack pant?
Guest S on Nov 24, 2015
W's Izzi Tavern Pant

W's Izzi Tack Pant

BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are essentially the same pant besides for the Tack look. Thanks!
Do all the sizes have the same inseam?
maryanne B on Aug 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello the inseams on the Izzi Tavern Pant goes up a half inch as you go up in size. Thanks
Will you get these in small & x small?
A shopper on May 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello at this time we won't be getting any more of these in until this Fall. If one is returned then we will put it back to stock and on the website.

I generally love all things Ibex. But these pants have been very disappointing. I returned two pair of them (at a cost of $12 for shipping each time!) because they snag so easily. I'm keeping the third pair in spite of the snagging because they make a great heavy base layer -- so I'm just revising my expectations down. The pants looked great before the snagging, and could be worn for both casual and a bit more dressy. The waistband is pretty stiff and a bit uncomfortable.
Generally, though, I recommend all Ibex products. Just don't like this one at all.

LOVE them.
LOVE these leggings. They have just the right amount of stretch. Wish they came in lots of other colours. I personally don't want pockets. I like to wear them with a tunic top. I have the medium. I'm 5'7', 140 lbs. They fit perfectly and wash well.

Super Stylish
I bought the energy free tight last year for wearing with sheepskin boots. But the seam of that pants is too sporty looking. This is so much better. Very chic and stylish. I could not ask for more. Please continue to make it and...more color would be appreciated!
October 1, 2013
I'd be wearing them now, but they needed a wash
Awesome pants. I wear them to work, to walk the dogs, to cross country ski, to PT, and to travel. After many wearings, I just now put them in the wash and will miss them while they dry. They have washed well with no shrinkage. Fit is good, length is actually perfect on my 5'5" frame, size small. If anything, they are a bit roomy in the waist, but I am on the small side of the Ibex size small. I had room to add layers underneath for when it was really cold. Only bad thing is that the fabric seems to be a magnet for dog hair - I have two blonde dogs and a brown dog - and multiple lint rollers.

My new favorite pant
I am replacing my jeans with this pant. I bought three. They are so perfect--comfortable and warm with sheepskin boots. I am 5" 2 and less than 100lb. xs fits perfectly.
October 17, 2013
Terrific new piece!
The Izzi Tavern Pants are an excellent new addition to the Ibex line! They fit well, are extremely comfortable, and look great under the Backbay tunic. The pants fit nicely into boots and look equally well with hiking shoes. I purchased two Backbay tunics and two pairs of Izzi Tavern pants and know that these will surely be my "go to" outfits this fall. I am 5'1" and weigh 102 lbs....size XS fits

great for daily wear at work and play
I bought these in late December and wore a pair daily to work with tights underneath on cold days (I live in Maine) until spring finally arrived and then wore them daily without tights until nearly May. The first pair needed mending repairs by late March but I keep them to wear in the garden and around the house. They tuck into my rubber boots and I thus avoid dreaded ticks! I did not have to wash them daily, but did air them in the dryer a few minutes each morning. Wash them only when needed. GREAT!

Do I have to take them off?
I got these pants in the mail two days ago, put them on yesterday morning, and haven't taken them off yet. When I went to bed last night I didn't want to take them off, so I didn't. When I woke up this morning I didn't want to take them off, so I didn't. Here's what these pants have done in their two days: bike commute, work, fundraising event at the museum, drinks with a friend, sleep, and pilate

long and lean
I bought these as a multi-purpose solution for yoga, hiking, climbing, casual wear, and as a non-see-through baselayer for snowboarding/skiing. I'm in between the XS and S (25" waist, 36" hip, usually a size 2 in dress pants) so I called Ibex and was directed to the XS, which is a good fit. It's totally comfortable but form-fitting, more like leggings than pants. If I had wanted them for wearing m

I love these pants!
Love these pants. I am 5'3" and about 137. The medium fite perfectly. I use them to stay warm in our house during winter, but they are nice enough to wear out. Wash really well. I like the slim fit. Look really nice with sweaters and Ibex hoodies.
