Great skirt -
By: Clydene from California
Very versatile and comfortable skirt (great travel skirt!). Love the a-line shape and slash pockets. The elastic waist allows ease of movement and feels good. I rated this 4 stars instead instead of 5 solely due to the fact that the waist has been cut a little narrower than the last one I bought of this type. Still fits great, but I would prefer the cut to be as it once was. Still, it is a great skirt and highly recommended.

High quality skirt -
By: Babs123 from Minnesota
I've had this skirt for nearly 10 years and it is still going strong, not faded. In winter I wear it once a week. I do iron it when it comes out of the dryer, but I don't mind. It is very comfortable and flattering.

I have purchased many skirts from this company. But this skirtis too tight. It iisn't how it looks in cataloguevor on internet. I am very disappointed and wish I had retuned it. I may find it difficult to order again.
too stiff -
I liked the style and quality of the skirt, but the material was heavier and stiffer than I expected. Decided to keep it for home wear, but unless the fabric loosens up with several washings, I won't be wearing it for around town. Like having a pair of heavy work jeans, only in skirt form.

Glad for a plain jean skirt without buttons, and side pockets too.
Not what I expected... -
I read all the reviews carefully before finally ordering this skirt. I wear skirts every day, and I am always on the lookout for skirts that are long and full but classic and attractive, sturdy enough for everyday life in the country but elegant too. Thus Orvis is a go-to for me. I had my eye on this for a long time, though I usually avoid denim as a personal preference. I liked that this skirt was offered in colors like black and grey, and wanted the grey to finish off a particular outfit. The reviews about fit and make warned me off for a long time, but I finally tried it. The reviews were right. The idea of this skirt is a good one, and if it was made the way it looks in the pictures it would be all right. However, I really think they didn't update the photo with this year's model. This skirt is not as full as it looks, only barely gathered over an elastic waist that is almost too small to pull up over my hips (I am 5'3", 115 lbs., and ordered the 4P, which is my usual Orvis skirt size). Really, I have to tug to get it on, and I am not full through the hips and rear. Once on, the skirt is not very full, and the waistline is chunky even under a belt. The material is a stiffish denim as expected, and the skirt has pockets (thank you, Orvis!). It was roughly what I needed to wear with a shirt and cardigan, which conceals the waist, so I am keeping it. I do think Orvis could do better on this one by making it fuller. Then I could recommend it like I do all my other Orvis skirts!
A Real Classic -
By: Caesare from Pasadena CA
The Orvis Denim Skirt is a perfect fit for the active, mature woman. Wears well around the home, on errands, and for travel. The classic style means years of stylish wear.
Just missed the mark -
By: hikingqueen from Bend, Or
This skirt was the usual high quality item that Orvis provides its shoppers, but there was too much fabric in the skirt, and the heavy denim weighed it down too much for my small frame.
