Best Corduroys?
I am petite (5'4") and pretty small, 34 1/2 inch hips....what do you all think are the best cords out there for a gal like me?

I used to wear Abercrombie cords b/c they were cut well for my body type (kinda boy-like) but I can't stand that store now. The music is unbearable and my butt crack hangs out of most of their pants.

I like J Crew usually too. I was looking at the dream bootcut stretch cords - has anyone tried them? Or anyone have any other suggestions?? I like cords that aren't too thick -- that adds too much bulk on me. Also, I like them to come a couple of inches below the belly button, but not too low! I live in them in the fall and winter!

Well, I'm a boy, so I can't speak to the fit of their women's wear from personal experience, but I really like my pair of Trovata cords. Mine have a nice fit - not too roomy, not too fitted, relatively thin wale - and they always have some nifty little details to spice them up (glass buttons, colorful stitching, interesting pocket linings, etc.)

activeendeavors carries them in a couple of colors for women at $155. Pictures below, but what you can't see are the cool vintage glass buttons in the button-fly. Best feature, in my opinion.
