Today's Shopping Trip- New! Run: Excel Crops

Sorry for the blurred photo
I went to the store today to pick up some pants for my husband and saw some new new knee-length run crops called the Excel Crops. My store had them in the Wee Are From Space print in black and aquamarine. They also had solid black (up to size 12), and black with a Paris waistband. They don't have any circle mesh inserts and the inseam is 16". The tag says the angled hem won't bunch up around your knee but that's exactly where these crops did end up. I found the hem uncomfortable and much prefer a ribbed bottom opening if there is a chance the crop is going to ride up to my knee. (For reference, I am 5'5"). I didn't care for the seam that cut across the back of the leg, either.

Thanks for updating the new crop. We don't even have the Ebb&Flow crop in store here yet(Robson store, Vancouver).

I saw these crops at the Santa Barbara store today in the same colors you mentioned. I found them to be super short with potential ride up issues as well. Perhaps they'll work for petite ladies looking for a shorter crop?

I am looking to buy the Wunder Under Crop *Pique ( http://shop.lululemon.com/products/clothes-accessories/women-crops/Wunder-Under-Crop-Pique-31424?cc=9924&skuId=3434115&catId=women-crops ) But I am from Montreal and they seems they doesn't have my sizes left nowhere. Either on the lulu official website. Any help on how I can find them ? Already checked on eBay and stuff like that! (I need size 10)

Thanks a lot!

@Johany, I can't help with your buying issue but just so you know, the Wunder Under Piques are very thick and warm. I wouldn't buy them if you're wanting to work out in them, as they'll make you sweat. I have a pair and I only wear them to lounge around the house. Just something to keep in mind (:

@Laurie ah, thanks for letting me know. I was looking for yoga pants actually. I thought they were very comfortable for that type of use. It's good to know that before buying!! hehe! Thanks again!
