Best place to buy work pants?

Where do you all buy your pants for work? I can wear jeans, but I like to look a little nicer at least half the time. I have a couple pairs of non-jeans for work from Gap Outlet, Banana Republic Outlet, and Loft Outlet and I hate the way all of them fit. They end up being saggy in the butt, and just overall unflattering (I definitely don't have a small or flat butt). Any suggestions on stores or brands with flattering slacks or non-jeans for a casual work environment? I'd like to spend as little as possible, but still get good quality. TIA!

Depends on your body type. I'm more bottom heavy(thighs not butt) and need longer pants. My favorite is beneton/sisley but it's pricey and not at the mall I normally go to. They also haven't made styles for me lately.

Right now most of my pants are from limited or express. You can get them on sale for $30 or under. Pretty good fit overall. I usually get drew fit at limited but I have some others. I was actually thinking of getting their credit card since alterations are free with it and they usually don't have longs in stock.
i have success with ny & company pants but they have talls which work good for me. they are durable and don't require a lot of heavy ironing. they always have really good sales. i like their tops a lot too.

Thanks for the suggestions. FWIW, I am very petite (5 feet even) with a butt and slight belly.

I'll check Express and The Limited for sales, I'm on a pretty tight budget at the moment. I wish we had a Ny & Co here, but the closest one is an hour away

I have a couple pairs from Eddie Bauer. They had a huge sale where they were around $20 each.
When are women going to face the fact that they donít know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

I have pretty good luck with NY & Co, Penney's and sometimes Kohl's (although Kohl's hasn't come through for me in the past 18 months or so, before that, they were my go-to).

NY&Co also has great sales online, too.

i was going to mention the great sales at ny & co. plus they have petite, avg and long lengths in pants. right now they are having 70% so LOTS of good sales on clothing.

The Limited. I wait until they are on sale for $25 and 40% off clearance.

NY&Co is another good choice but I tend not to shop there often. too much polyester and their clothes run too big for me
The Express Editor pant.

NY & Co is good for inexpensive comfy pants.
Ah, it all makes sense now. Goldy is the puppet master!

Express sometimes has buy one get one for 50% off and plus coupons (like $25 off $100). Other than that, you have to wait for them to go on sale. They are usually included in the semi-annual sale. It seems like i rarely see them on the sale racks. Maybe others have.
I love the Martin fit pants from Banana Republic. They are pricey if you pay full price, but if you find them on the sale racks you can get good deals.
