Girl, put your phone down. A pair of Faction’s skinny pants will get you a date faster than Tinder. Never has a pair of ski pants looked so good on so many different body types as the Bly.
Several ladies, all different shapes and sizes, zipped into a pair of Blys at Thread the Needle and the pants looked good on everyone thanks to the Xero3 stretch fabric and the slim, bootcut profile. Much like a pair of quality yoga pants, the Bly moves easily and freely, stays in place (i.e., no butt sag), and is super stylish when paired with a longer jacket.
The Bly skinnies are made for the ski resort. They do not have vents and their waterproof/breathability rating is only 10k/5k, so don’t take them out in a PNW slush fest or a Sierra cement-type blizzard. They also size small. That said, these pants are an essential.
