SAN FRANCISCO, Ca - Online retailer Everlane might have hit the fashion jackpot. The American clothing website had a waiting list more than 12,000 customers long, all hoping to get their hands on the brand's new trousers, which the company released on March 9.

Everlane's design team claimed they spent over a year developing the perfect pant, focusing on price point and fabric, which lead the designers to develop two in-demand styles. The first is called the 'slim trouser' featuring "a tapered leg that stops at the ankle in a flattering split. It’s cut from a wool-blend stretch fabric, allowing for total comfort and movement," according to the products' press release. The second style is the 'slouchy trouser' which is described as "a slightly more relaxed cut with easy pleats at the front. Its fine wool fabrication creates a beautiful, fluid drape that gently tapers at the leg," also noted in the release.

The slim fit retails for $98, while the slouchy will cost you $120. Both styles come in black and navy, and are still available on Everlane's website as of Thursday afternoon. However, with all the hype leading up to their release, they're likely to be a hot sell, and a fast one at that.
