Rated 5 out of 5Â by anthropologist stevie ankle
This is another version of the popular AG Stevie ankle jeans. The colors are more mottled than the usual colored denim. There is tencel in the fabric instead of polyester as in the usual Stevies. The fit is the same, go with your usual size. They have nice stretch but seem like they will hold their shape. I haven't worn mine long enough or washed them to comment on that.
I choose the navy; it is like a greyish dark blue.
The length is longer than usual Stevie ankle jeans; mine come to my ankle bone instead of 2-3 inches above the ankle bone.
Will be a great jean choice for late summer and fall.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ktbell LOVE SOFT PANTS
My Mother-in-law turned me on to these GREAT SOFT JEANS. I am always looking for a great fitting soft, skinny jean in really unique colors and these AG Jeans fit the bill. They are amazing. You can dress them up for work or wear them with a t-shirt on the weekend. You can wear all different shoes with them, I bought them with the intention of wearing booties with them but today I'm wearing them with wedges! They are a little pricier than the $40 jeans I'm used to buying from a popular teen store, but it's time to grow up. I would recommend these jeans to anyone looking for a comfortable yet sophisticated , sexy "grown-up" jean.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by BooRadley TOO SKINNY.
I love Stevie Ankle Jeans, but they all vary from style to style, from fabric to fabric and even from size to size. I thought after I got my first pair (navy polka dot) I could just buy the same size in a bunch of different styles. Nope. If I was in a store, I could try these on by the dozen, but when purchasing online it's a bit trickier, especially as I live overseas.
I'm a 6/8 in Anthro stuff and usually a 28 in designer jeans, but I sometimes size up. I'm tall and slim but curvy, so jeans ALWAYS gape at the waist for me (except 7 For All Mankind Kimmie Curvy), and I end up putting a couple of darts in the back waistband (which, FYI, works better than you'd think it would, so I recommend trying it if you have this problem). I think my shape is really average, but I definitely have a proportionally smaller waist, larger hips and fuller thighs (with skinny calves) than your average Anthro model.
I bought these in Sulfur Faded Plum, which is a lovely muted, brownish aubergine. I sized up to a 29, because I bought them to slouch around home in, so I wanted them to be a little relaxed in the leg, and I planned to nip in the waist.
These jeans are SKINNY. They're stretchy, skinny jeans. They hug your leg tightly all the way to the ankle, like jeggings, and reveal every bump. I would have to wear appropriate underwear with them to hide the dreaded VPL. I don't usually have to worry about that with jeans. My other Stevies are more relaxed through the leg and straight rather than skinny. I just didn't like the way these looked.
The other downside is that the waist gaped at the back REALLY BADLY. I tend to judge the gap by what sized fruit it could (hypothetically) accommodate. If I could fit an orange in there, it might okay with tailoring. If I could fit some kind of melon in there, THE JEANS ARE GOING BACK. Again, my shape is really unremarkable, so I don't know who these are designed for. Slim women with toothpick legs, narrow hips and really wide waists, I guess?
I could have sized down, but the legs would have been impossibly tight, and judging by the shape of the waist and everything, the shape was just wrong for me. Not contoured enough through the hips and waistband.
So, sadly, these are going back. But I had more luck with the AG Stevie Ankle Cords (Style No. 28776060) and the AG Stevie Sateen Ankle Jeans (Style No. 26760603).
