Rated 4 out of 5┬áby allegra808 Very Nice
AG jeans are the best, IMO. I've been wearing various cuts for years and have amassed quite a collection. Even though I frequently try different denim brands and have a few other favorites (JBrand and Paige), nothing has ever for me matched AG's combination of superb fabric quality and construction, beautiful washes, amazing comfort, and not least of all the most butt-flattering fit ever.
So, I got both the grey and blue "landing" options. At 5'2", if straight/skinny jeans come in petites and if they are AGs, you order any and all. :) Happily, these Stevies turned out to be very nice (the grey) and nearly perfect (the blue). All of the aforementioned AG qualities are there. The quality is there, comfort can be felt, fit is excellent, the butt looks tight and the leg line long. They are keepers for me and I expect to get a ton of wear from each pair.
A few specific notes on the grey pair: The actual name of the wash is "studio" in Asphalt Denim. The fabric is a nice substantial 11 oz with a good amount of stretch. It does run a little bigger in the waist and visibly longer in the legs than the blue pair. Due to the length running a little long and knee breaks being set a little low, there is a bit of excess at the knees. I ordered a second pair in the same size and a third pair one size down to compare, but the issue remains. I'm going to keep my regular size and send it through the washer/dryer a couple of times. If you can tolerate the little looseness in the knees, these are nice jeans and a good alterntive to the ubiquitous blue.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby tiffintexas I love these!
I don't usually do gray jeans, but I love Stevies, and I figured I'd at least try them on and see how they look.
The fit of these is so nice! The denim is stretchy , and molds well to my thighs and hips. The length is just what I need - it hits right at the ankle and will look good with wedges, flats and heels.
They are also extremely flattering to my butt. I didn't try AG jeans until last year, and I'm kicking myself for missing out on them this entire time. This is the most flattering brand I've ever owned.
I tried the 28 (my usual size in Stevies) and a 27, and decided to stick with the 28 because they fit my thighs better. I'll shrink them down in the washer if I need to.

I am a true fan of AG, especially the Stevie. Great for my athletically full booty, narrow hips and short waist. My dark blues are my staple.
I was (am?) totally in love with the grey color, bought them in regular size, thinking they'd shrink to fit. Not so much. They grow with wearing (even after hot wash/dry) and I actually had to stop and buy a belt midway through a shopping trip (fancy that anthro was nearby, yes?).
Barely wear them now, as the peculiar bagginess makes me look bigger (5'2, size 26).
Though I have found them useful around lady time when other jeans are a bit snug - am just sure to cinch up my belt!
