I've been scouting leather-look skinnies for ages, and these, in spite of their hefty price tag, are the winners. I usually wear a 28 in jeans, sometimes dropping to a 27 when I am at my lowest weight. I'm slender but with a booty, so high-waisted is a must for me. In the store, the 28s were gorgeous but super skin-tight, so I was tempted to size up to a 29. However, a salesgirl suggested that I should actually size down to a 27, because she has these and she says they loosen up about a size. There is a tag on them warning that they should be specialty dry-cleaned, so they're not the kind of pants that you can shrink back up in the dryer. So, if you want to retain that super-tight look, size down. If you want a more relaxed look, take your usual size. I took the 28s (in black).
They are incredibly stretchy and feel great on. They are not quite as as scuba-shiny as they look in the pictures. The perfect way to elevate comfy neutral outfits.

I just bought these in the store and felt compelled to leave a review. ( I rarely write reviews.) These look great on the hanger but are a total showstopper on the body. The SA in the changing area let out a very genuine WHOA when I walked out with these suckers on. The price is hefty even for premium denim, but I have no regrets buying these and feel they're totally worth it. They fit true to size; I'm 5'9, 140 lbs with a slightly curvy bum, and the 28 fits perfectly. Even though they're high rise, they're not overly so. They aren't ridiculously shiny so can be dressed up or down. You'll get a lot of double-takes in these, not for the faint of heart.
