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.

Where my Izzi pants all the time and thought I would try a different style.
Janet H on Feb 3, 2016
These tights look like a good layering piece , or can just wear them around the house to stay warm in the winter
tiffany m on Feb 2, 2016
The Tavern Pant is my go-to for winter wear with wooly tunics, and I am happy to see new colors, esp. as I have to replace them frequently as I bicycle in them and tend to wear out the inner thigh within a few months.
Simran K on Feb 2, 2016

These are not as flattering on my short (5'1") frame as I'd hoped, but they are very comfortable.
Tara W on Jan 31, 2016
i live in my tavern pants from last year. although it appears that the style has changed, i'm hoping i'll like the new styling, and am interested in this snazzy color.

bittersweet remains my favorite color, by far, for tavern pants as well as for izzys. i wish bittersweet would return!
IRENE S on Jan 30, 2016
Love it
Eric D on Jan 29, 2016
was looking for a warm casual pant that's not baggy
Holly H on Jan 27, 2016
Best fitting pant I have ever owned and like all other products, warm. For me, forget synthetics, give me nice soft wool.
Robin W on Jan 25, 2016
To go with the Pez long sweater.
Julianne K on Jan 25, 2016
comfy and stylish
Jane S on Jan 24, 2016
returned. the length was too short. I'm 5'8"
Guest S on Jan 24, 2016
I have these in black and now want another color! The weight is great...not flimsy. They are fitted, yet I don't feel self conscious. Great looking with a pair of knee high boots. Multi-purpose pants, for sure!
Anne L on Jan 23, 2016
looking for warm outer layer for early morning dog walks!
Guest S on Jan 23, 2016
wearing ibex tights all the time, will compare to the energy tight
SCVT on Jan 22, 2016
Trying it - out of my size in Energy Free Tight - my first choice
Kathy C on Jan 21, 2016
Good for relaxing and for active pursuits
Jean L on Jan 21, 2016
Best comfy day wear ever. Thick enough to wear out to the market, and stretchy enough to lounge in.
Michelle H on Jan 19, 2016
I selected these pants based upon the great reviews. The first time I wore them I knew they were keepers. So comfortable and flattering!
Guest S on Jan 19, 2016
Actually wearing these pants today. Super warm and soft- 18 -29 degrees out....and comfy. I hate to say it, but this is my 3rd day in a row with them on...they're that comfy.
Angela L on Jan 18, 2016
These pants are terrific, I have 6 pairs! I usually get these in an XS, as I am 5'1" and weigh 103 lbs. However, today I ordered a size small, as I wanted to have a looser fit so that I might wear them without boots or feel the need to wear a longer tunic. These are wonderful winter pants and very warm.
Grammy on Jan 17, 2016
beautiful and comfortable and flattering too
beth b on Jan 17, 2016
fits and looks great. warm. fabric is a great weight for the PNW.
Claudia E on Jan 17, 2016
I have two other pairs in black and taupe and just love them, so wanted another color. These pants are the best for cycling and are dressy enough to wear out in the evening. And they are machine washable!
Berky on Jan 15, 2016
I have and love the energy tight and want to see how these compare.

i wanted the gray not the copper color
Guest S on Jan 7, 2016
Very durable. I ordered a size larger than my usual size because I want a looser pant I can wear to work.
Lorie F on Jan 7, 2016
Addicted to wool - looking for a pant that will work for walking, traveling, working out, and lounging on the couch in the evenings. Trying Ibex for the first time - treating myself!

I already have two Izzie skirt/tight combos and just wanted another set. I like this color and it matches the skirt.

Looking for some comfortable, warm pants to wear to and from the mountain and après ski as well as to pair under a winter skirt.
VTUltrachick on Dec 17, 2015
I was looking for actual wool leggings instead of my "long underwear" as leggings. These got great reviews and should fill the bill.

Can't guess size - waist 28 hips 36- skinny legs. How stretchy are these (izzy tavern) pant?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Very stretchy and very comfortable. I liked them so much that I bought three pair. They are too long for me as I'm 5 ', but I just roll them over. They are in between tights and pants, sort of like jeggings. I wear them on their own or under skirts and dresses in the deep winter. I am size 12 and wear a L.
Does the tavern pant have the same cut in the leg as the tack pant?
Guest S on Nov 24, 2015

BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are essentially the same pant besides for the Tack look. Thanks!
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.
Which pants are a relaxed fit ?
A shopper on Dec 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Tavern pants are closer to the body, perfect for tunic or longer tops. Izzi pants flow more generously,can be used with any top . Both styles are very comfortable. I find the tavern pants warmer because they are close to the body, but I have both styles and use them both all the time.
I am 5'9 and 120 lbs. would a small work? The small skirt fits perfect.
Peggy L on Oct 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: these are close fitting, pants…I am 5'7 and about 136lbs… I have small and medium…they both fit, but the small
knit weave in the inner thigh area is beginning to pulli…the medium is fine…. I think the medium would be better
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.
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
Does that wide waist band contain an elastic band inside of the same width? I hate big thick rubber bands and prefer a self-ribbed type of waste. Is this one really constricting?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, yes, there is an internal elastic band within the waistband, however, it does provide decent stretch. With the proper size I doubt you would find it constricting.
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 these pants, need em in petite
I love these pants and I wear them practically every day. The cider color is beautiful-- I have a pair also in black. My one complaint is that my second pair-same size but bought later in time- had to be taken to the seamstress for hemming.

I really wish Ibex would roll out petite sizes. I'm 5'3" and I just don't think those of us with smaller frames should have to shell out extra money for pants we love just because we are not model-tall. I am a loyal customer with loads of Ibex clothes and I'd love to be heard on this request. Thanks!

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!

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.
February 17, 2014
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
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'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.

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

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

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.
