I have searched for many many many years for new jeans that I actually wanted to wear. These are the best fitting jeans I have ever owned in my 38 years, even when I was a rail thin teenager who could wear whatever easily. Waist: The elastic waist band thing on the inside is genius and really helps with overall fit, especially for those who get the gap in the back of the waist. Fabric: The fabric is thick & sturdy, not the cheap crap that gets tied in knots by your front loader that's usually used in women's clothing. It may be a little too warm for spring/summer though. It is stretchy, they will shrink a tiny bit in the dryer, and they will stretch out a little bit during the day if you're moving around a lot...but not like cheapo crappy stretch jeans.
These jeans fit awesome. I bought my daughter in law a pair and she loves them too.I highly recommend these for people who enjoy being comfortable when they wear jeans. If you like jeans that fit below the waist or on the hips then you will NOT likes these as they are supportive on the belly area and very comfortable on the belly button area. The waist band is stretchy too but wide enough that it does not cut into you when you bend over to pick up something. I can lift my leg up to get into the vehicle without having to readjust my pants leg to get in. I would recommend them to anyone.
