Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 by gardenia Perfect for petites!
Thank you Anthro and AG for offering the classic Stevie in petite sizes! I love the regular Stevie cut but have always had to scrunch and roll up the hem so during the recent free shipping promotion, I ordered the petite version in both grey and blue in 25P (I'm usually a size 25), thinking I would try them on for size but keep only one pair given the high price. The fit is so perfect and flattering, and it's so hard to find such well fitting jeans, I decided to splurge and keep both pairs. I've already worn them both multiple times so I think they're a good investment in keeping with typical AG quality. Fellow petites, these trump the Stevie Ankle! I believe they're a genuine petite cut - not only is the hem shorter but the overall fit is tailored down and slimmer at the knee and opening. I'm 5'2" so these may be a tad short for taller petites. Note that the blue color way feels softer than the grey, but the grey is also a perfect neutral. Highly recommend these jeans and only wish that Anthro carried petite sizes in stores so that other petites could try them on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yourworstchina Just love AG
AG are the best fitting, most comfortable jeans, period. Wonderful quality, Made in America, and my a*# looks fabulous. Gray a wonderful contrast color for someone who owns one too many navy blouses (moi), and the slightly longer leg in this gray pair fits perfectly on a slightly taller frame (5'9"). Having recently sized up to a 27" waistband (now 118lbs), I was surprised that the 27's felt too big on me, and instead had to go with my former 26 (in particular, the waistband puckered out at the back and the knees were a bit large, as one previous reviewer mentioned). I also tried on the several other (blue) Stevie washes in-store and found that I was indeed a 27, with the exception of the gray pair. So be warned, size down in this wash!
