Â by GeoInCalifornia Comfortable and Flattering without Stretching Out
I originally ordered the boot-cut in a 29. I wore them for 30 minutes, hoping they would loosen up through the thigh. No such luck. I re-ordered size 30.
I easily took a 29 for Pilcro Stet Slim Straights in Tannabe. Pilcro sizing tends to be inconsistent. I take a 6 like clockwork in both Leifsdottir and Cartonnier.
SIZE: Iâm 5â5â, 135 lbs, 35-29-36. The higher rise contains the mid life doughnut for the most part. Petite length was sold out, so I made due with regular. They just clear a 2 to 3 inch heel. I fold the hem to wear with flats.
FIT: The 30âs fit like a glove. There is plenty of stretch in the medium weight denim without being stiff. They hold their shape well. I mist them with fabric softener/ water and throw them in the dryer on low to remove wrinkles and tighten the fit. Jeans wonât last long if you wash after every wear.
COLOR: Beautiful dark blue. With just a bit of blue-green fade down the thigh and knees. The fade at the folds is much less obvious IRL.The understated stitching is gold. You can see the weave. Once washed, these are soft in the right areas. Like the front of the leg. Thankfully, the color has not rubbed off on the leather seats in my car, or on light colored clothing.
I find them to be very comfortable and flattering compared to most denim. So I keep checking online, and hoping Anthro will throw us more color options in the boot-cut. I really love them and want another pair or two.
At this price, I didnât hesitate to order full price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ameliann Love these!!
In desperate need for jeans, I grabbed an armful and picked these up as an afterthought. These jeans are amazing! I know jeans are so personal and what looks good on one person will look strange on the next. I'm curvy, size 6-8 with a long torso and these were amazing. Finally, I can walk, sit, bend over and not feel like I'm constantly pulling my jeans up to cover a muffin-top. I thought I was set on the AG Stevie, then I put these on. They have just the right amount of stretch and they elongate my legs so much better than the typical skinny. I was hesitant about the "bootcut", but these almost feel like a "straight". The only thing I would mention is that I'm 5'4" and wearing 3" heels, these fit me perfectly in the length. That's something that's always hard to find...it might be more difficult for taller girls.
It would be great to see these in another wash!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Paintergirl Great quality
I just got these jeans from the store and they are just great. I love that they're thicker and the finish on them seems very durable. As they age I can tell that they won't pill, which even a pair of Citizens jeans that I have are already doing after only one year. They seem to suck everything in without being like a tourniquet, The slight fade on them doesn't look on purpose - nice gradual fade. I got a 28 and my measurements are: low waist 30", hips 35.5" and thighs 21.5". I'm 5'9" and the length is just right. The rise on these is great too. They're not high mom jeans, but high enough that you could tuck a shirt in and they would still look flattering.
