Rated 5 out of 5Â by Anthro2012 CoH Paisley Jeans
For reference, I am 5' 8". My measurements: Waist: 24", Low Waist: 26", Hip: 36".
I ordered the size 26, and the fit is good. No gaping at the waist, and the leg length on me is as pictured on the website. I do agree with a previous reviewer that the fit may be smaller than other Avedons (I bought the floral-print Avedon offered earlier this year, also in 26, and found it to be just slightly looser and perhaps a bit shorter in length).
The colours in the paisley print are muted purple, blue, and olive green and are true to the photo as it appears on my screen.
Mid rise -- not as low as AG stevie.
Made well and in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BooBooLa LOVE!
I'm over 60, about 5' 71/2" and 138 lbs.
I have a flat backside, thighs somewhat rounded and most jeans slip down regardless of how tight they are. Citizens for Humanity fit me so well. This is my second pair and I couldn't be more delighted. It's my favorite pair I've ever bought, they go with everything and look cute rolled up with wedges or ballet slippers, with a crisp white shirt. Very classic and the print is subtle enough to just look dadgummit cool!
I don't know what size I am, but though I could get into the 29's, I bought the 30's as I want to be able to "access" them even if I've put on a pound or two. They are fitted throughout and don't bag.
I don't experience them as being as stiff as the first reviewer, but they aren't super soft or flimsy either. They are slightly distressed, well-made and hey, just feel supportive. I know it sounds silly, but I feel so grateful to have found these as i'm so hard to fit.

With my 50th birthday hanging over my head, these jeans were just the pick-up I needed! I love COH denim. In fact, most of my favorite jeans are COH. I was concerned that these jeans might be too young for me. In addition to that, my upper thighs are not skinny and I feared the print would emphasize the fact. Not so. I am 5'4" and 130 pounds with a definite hourglass shape. There was no gap at the waist and plenty of room in the thigh and tush area. All my COH jeans are 29s, and these fit perfectly in a 29 as well. I can understand some of the other reviewers' comments about the need to size up, but I think it's only because we have become so accustomed to jeans feeling like leggins with all the stretch. I did wear them around the house for an hour before I was satisfied that they would stretch just enough to be comfortable all day long. I like them best with flip flops or platform sandals, but I"m sure they will rock in a pair of boots when the snow begins to fall. Best thing, they make me feel youthful. They are trendy, yet still manage to be age appropriate.
