I own another pair of Ava in a very dark wash in a size 26 and ordered the same in this pair. For reference I am always a 26 in Citizens and AG, but find the 26 in Citizens is usually just a teeny bit looser through the waist and hips than AG. This lighter pair fits differently than my dark rinse Ava. I found the light wash to fit consistently through the hip but to be a little looser through the thigh, knee, and calf... yet somehow a smaller ankel opening. It makes for a strange fit. Overall it was not the same slim, straight fit on me as in the picture, and I'm a fairly slim, straight person. The material is lovely -- quality construction, soft, light and thin, so I think it would be a good spring/summer jean. The fading and distressing details were exactly as shown in the picture but somehow doesn't feel obnoxiously 80s. Overall, I feel like these fit me closer to a "slouchy boyfriend" fit through the legs -- but slim through the hip. I'm not sure yet if I'll keep these simply because I was hoping for the look in the photo: more slim and straight all the way down. Maybe if you are curvier in the legs, this jean will look great on you. Also, they are super long! A full 4" past my heel, and at 5'7" I'm not exactly short. I'm on the fence, but at the incredible sale price I might keep them and make them work, as I really wanted a pair of light wash denim and perhaps just need to move out of my AG Stilt comfort zone to something a bit looser. :)

There's a reason why these were marked down as much as they were. I LOVE COH Avas usually. These were cut way different than Avas usually are. They were saggy in the legs and thighs but tight in the waist. The color was actually good (I was worried it would be too light) but the fit was atrocious. I don't know what happened here but they were NOT your usual Avas. Sadly, these are going back.

I agree with the other comment regarding the fit of this pair of jeans. In the photo they look as if they're slim fitting but I would also say they're actually a boyfriend fit. I also agree that the material and craftsmanship is very good. They are definitely butt friendly. Disappointing but I'll probably keep them because of the material, wash & behind.
