Rated 5 out of 5┬áby beholdenvintage Superscript: Super classy, sexy, cool.
These jeans are everything that I've ever wanted in a jean. I am 5'7" and usually wear a size 30 in most pants, although I ordered the 29 in these because I seem to be a 29 in Pilcro jeans these days. The thing that I love most about these jeans is that for a woman like me with a much large rear to waist ratio, the high rise fits both areas perfectly! My rear has plenty of room and the pocket placement is absolutely DIVINE, AND my waist is perfectly hugged by the high rise cut. LOVE. Furthermore, I was a bit worried after reading the other reviews that remarked on the "thinness" of the jean material, but I am so happy to report that the material, in my opinion, is of a very nice, moderate weight. There is certainly a bit of stretch but the weight of the denim nicely counteracts the dreaded stretchy-denim-cling very well.
The last thing that I absolutely LOVE about these jeans is the charm of the detail. The waistband is triple layered and holds its shape throughout the day very well--this is great for tucking in blouses, tops, etc. Not to mention the cute red and grey stitching at the top of the waistband as well! LOVE.
I love these jeans, can you tell?
I am a college instructor and on a budget but I'm thinking of ordering another pair for when this pair wears out--hopefully not for years and years as that's how long I'll probably want to wear them.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby BWeaves 1. I'm 5'5" tall, 135 lbs, and 36-30-38 and the size 30 fit me perfectly in the hips, but had a huge gap in the back of the waist.
2. I bought this same jean last year in an inky wash and it fit perfectly. This year, the fabric is cross hatch with whiskering and lots of spandex, which makes it feel tighter. This year, it feels like it's suctioned onto my legs. I don't like that. Last year, the waist fit perfectly (and still fits, as I still own the old pair). This year, the waist doesn't fit at all.
3. Unlike last year, this year the watch pock is triple layer, which is bulky. It feels like a lump right at the top of my hip.
4. This is going back. I wish they'd leave the styling alone. If they are going to change the styling, they should give the style a new name.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby DiscoGirl I agree with the previous reviewer about these jeans running large in the waist. I always take a 31 in Pilcro, and they were just too big. I reordered them in a 30, and they fit like a glove. I have wide hips and thunder thighs, and they still fit perfectly after sizing down.
