Ryan Trouser in Twill


Size Guide

A little bit casual, a little bit dressy, the Ryan Trouser is the workwear pant you didn't know you needed. With its high rise, elastic waistband, and side seam pockets, the Ryan can be worn all day everyday. This style has been a Sotela staple since 2017, and it's here to stay.

Great Pants!

I love these pants. I ordered a size 4 and am usually a 10/12, was worried about getting them over my hips. They are a bit big in my waist/hips but I still love them as is and shirts look very cute tucked into them. They're also very comfy - wore them on a 24 hour trip (two long flights) and no complaints!

Comfy pants that look nicer than leggings!

I just got these pants about 2 weeks ago and have already worn them 5 times. They stood up to a two hour car ride, a 19 month old's grimy hands, work from home, and even a nice dinner out with friends. The pockets are deep enough to feel like my phone is secure and the weight of fabric is substantial, but not stiff. These were a birthday present to myself and I couldn't be happier!


These pants are absolutely beautiful and well-crafted. I wasn’t sure how the cotton twill would feel, but I love that they feel durable and soft at the same time. As a tall girl, I hate when pants go to or above my ankle, and I love that Sotela offers a tall size that makes me feel comfortable and excited about pants that are actually long enough for me! Thank you so much—will be saving up to buy another pair in another color!

Year-round winner

I'm a devoted Ryan trouser wearer. The rise is truly high, the leg tapers beautifully and the elastic waist allows me to get a great fit despite an 17" waist/hip difference. This twill is one of my favorite Sotela fabrics yet. It holds its shape well and feels tailored, but still soft and comfortable. It's mid-weight and crisp. The natural white color will work year round. Thrilled with these trousers.

The pant that I want always to wear!

Great fabric and confection, fitting is perfect and that so comfortable! I'm very happy about this purchase.

 Sotela's approach to sizing is a little different. Instead of using the conventional small, medium and large, we've decided to change our wording because why not! We want to keep things simple and offer the most out of your clothing. 




Here's a step by step of how to choose your Sotela size:

  1. Measure yourself – This one is very important if you shop online, which as of now, I think we all are! Check out our tutorial to measure yourself because we use low hip measurements with our clothing. 
  2. Once you have your measurements, go to the product page for the garment you are interested in and click on the “Sizing and fit” tab or “Garment Measurements for Petite, etc.”
  3. The garment measurements on the product page will tell you the actual width and length of the garment. For example: the Ryan Trouser measures 26″ with an unstretched waistband and 42″ in the hip for the size 1.
  4. Based on your measurements, choose a size that is about 2″ more than your largest measurement. For example: I have a 39″ hip. The size 1 hip measures 42″ which gives me about 3″ of ease. The size 0 measures 40″ in the hip making it too small for me.
  5. Make sure to use your largest measurement when choosing a size, especially if you are looking at a jumpsuit or dress. If your bust is larger than your hip, I’d recommend choosing a size based on your bust because that ensures it will give sufficient ease for the rest of your body.
  6. Lastly, if you are still unsure, email us hello (at) with your measurements! We are happy to recommend a size.
