Our bestselling Merida pants might as well be called our unofficial APIECE APART uniform — we wear ours year-round and are always dreaming up new colors and ways to wear...


We polled our studio on the Merida-centric questions we get asked most often: Read on to get the full breakdown on how to choose the perfect pant.

1. HOW CROPPED ARE THE MERIDAS SUPPOSED TO BE?


It’s up to you! We generally say: just above the ankle…but they will fit everyone slightly differently depending on your height and styling preference. If you find them to be too cropped, you can also add between 2-3 inches at the ankle by letting out the hem. 



2. IF I’M BETWEEN SIZES, SHOULD I SIZE UP OR DOWN?


The pants are designed to fit snugly across the seat — in the classic Cotton Meridas we advise sizing up and taking in the waist as needed. Due to the natural stretch in the denim Meridas we'd suggest sizing down.


 
3. ARE MY PANTS GOING TO STRETCH?


Your Meridas will soften (and get better!) as they age — the classic cotton Meridas won't stretch substantially, but the denim styles can stretch up to a half-size.


4. DO YOU OFFER ALTERATIONS?


Yes! We’re excited to share that we’re now able to offer free alterations on in-store and online purchases of Merida pants within 30 days of purchase. If you ordered online, all you have to cover is the shipping to us — we’ll pay for the return shipping!


* Pants must have been purchased either in our SoHo APIECE APART store or online at ApieceApart.com to be eligible for free alterations. All altered pants are final sale.*

HOW TO PREP MERIDAS
FOR ALTERATIONS:


In the waist — try on your pants and, using a safety pin, pin to indicate how much you'd like taken in for the perfect fit.
 
On the hem —

Shorter — fold + pin pants to the desired length (you can also tell us your inseam!)
Longer — the hem can be taken out to add between 2-3 inches to the length depending on size. Please include in a note inside the parcel indicating how much you’d like taken out (you can also tell us your inseam!)
