Stovepipe Pants


About Exact Color Matches

As a small business, I buy fabric and dye goods in small batches. Making an exact color match can therefore present challenges at times. Although my two fabric weights may have been dyed at the same time, they will emerge from the dye bath with slightly different shading. Often these differences are very subtle and though the two garments may have slightly different shade values, they will still look great together.

When ordering items you plan to wear together, please let me know if an exact shade match is essential. Often I can match garments using extra yardage I include in each dye lot. If fabric is available, I can cut and sew a matching item to complete your outfit. Of course that takes extra time. I will let you know if making your matched set will take extra time and when to expect delivery if part of it must be specially cut and sewn.

If you are comfortable with garment colors that have similar shades but differing values, please be sure to check the "No Thanks" box when placing an order for two or more items of the same color.

Easy, Eco-Friendly Care

Our sustainable hemp/Tencel fabric blend is easy to care for. To enhance its wonderfully supple hand and keep your clothes looking their best, follow these eco-friendly tips:

  1. Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
  2. We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
  3. Because the hemp content may produce wrinkles and develop a somewhat firm hand during laundering and air-drying, tumble your dry clothes in a warm dryer for a few minutes to relax wrinkles and soften the fabric's hand. (Because hemp softens with wear, this step becomes unnecessary as your garment ages.)
  4. Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
  5. If needed, touch up collars and hems with a hot iron.
  6. When traveling, roll up your Sympatico clothes then hang them up on arrival. A quick spritz with water will help eliminate wrinkles. (I find spritzing my craft fair inventory on hangers works like a charm for releasing wrinkles that develop during travel.) Hanging wrinkled items in a steamy bathroom is a great alternative to ironing also.

Thanks to hemp's anti-microbial properties you'll probably find that you launder your Sympatico wear less often, reducing the energy your clothes consume.

  1. Stovepipe pants 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2017

    I love the pockets!

  2. I wanted to love these. 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2017

    I was unsure of size so I ordered the medium in plum and the large in grey fog (they did not have plum in the large) I loved the plum color particularly. Unfortunately neither pair fit my particular body. The medium was too small all over and the large with no give in the fabric was uncomfortably snug in the rear. Sadly I will have to return them both.

    The stovepipe pants I bought several years ago fit me so well I decided to buy two more. So now I have three comfortable, stylish pants.

  5. Major comfort and good looks, too 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2015

    The fabric is indestructible and the cut elegant. What is there not to like? Oh--I need to mention that the pockets are big enough to actually put one's hands into.

  6. Washes well, great fit, American made! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2015

    I have a gray pair and plan to get another color. They fit well, don't crumple badly and wash easily. I just hang them to dry. Well done !

  7. Nicely-cut & American-made 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jul 2015

    These pants are nicely-cut: neither too snug nor too baggy. They can be dressed up or down, so work equally well for business or leisure. The fabric is very nice: substantial enough to be worn in cooler weather, yet just as comfortable in warmer weather. Kudos to you, Sympatico, for making such lovely, wearer-friendly & eco-friendly clothing--& in our USA!

  8. Great fit + Made in U.S.A. = Win-win! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2015

    I needed pants other than jeans to take on my AZ trip next week. I already have 2 of the Sympatico tops, so "Why not get a compatible pair of pants," I thought. Perfect decision, as the pants are exactly the color to match both tops, and the fit is true! Thank you, Sympatico, for these great garments!


Matching lightweight tops with midweight pants or skirts

Midweight and lightweight fabrics vary subtly in how they take dye. Even though your outfit may be from the same dye bath, one piece may be darker than the other.

If you prefer an exact match with no variations in color values, order the midweight for both garments.
