Rated 2 out of 5Â by CMF2 Disappointing
Beware of these! There is MAJOR stripes going down the outside seams. If you can zoom close you see double line running down both sides of the seam. It was very prominent when I tried on. It seems the dark color left major marks when washed out. It may have been intentional but in my opinion looks so very strange. Usually love my jbrands but these are horrible. Resist the sale price....you will regret it.
If you can get past these stripes they fit great like all other j brands. I figured they would be silly long but they look perfect with a bit of bunch on the bottom.
I returned mine as fast as I could...yuck.

Unlike the previous review, I really liked both the color and the fit of the jeans. I also liked the line that goes along the leg and feel like it adds a different touch to the distressed color of the jeans. It fits true to size. I am a 5.5 and 112 pounds and I took my usual size 26. Especially in it's sale price, I think it is definitely work the price.

Unlike the first reviewer, I love these jeans, and think they're well worth the sale price. The stripes at the side seams are not especially obtrusive, in my opinion--they look like (deliberately-done) normal variation from the dyeing process, rather than, say, the stripes down the sides of track pants.
I have a hard time finding jeans that fit the way I like (5'8", 110-115lbs, 33" inseam), since I like them skinny and long enough (not a fan of the ankle-length fit). These fit the bill. I took my usual size (25) and they fit perfectly; they're snug but incredibly comfortable--there's just the right amount of stretch in the waistband, so it doesn't dig in when I move around, bend over, sit. The slim cut fits me perfectly--my legs are not particularly well-muscled, so ladies with a bit more muscle tone might find these too slim, despite the stretch in the fabric. The only points I took off were because the opening at the foot is juuuust narrow enough that I have some trouble convincing the jeans to stay down over the top of my ankle booties. It's not a huge deal, more like a minor annoyance.
I'd have a hard time justifying these at anything near full price, but at the sale price? The first time I wore them a friend grabbed her computer and bought a pair, and I'm considering picking up a second.
