Rated 5 out of 5 by maddhatterslab LOVE these jeans from Pilcro!
I had previously purchased the Hyphen Distressed jeans from Pilcro in the store and loved the fit, but I wanted to also have a pair of darker, not-so-distressed jeans, so I thought these would be perfect. After reading the reviews about this being a skinny jean, I almost didn't order these. I have large thighs, so unless I'm buying relaxed or boyfriend jeans, I have to size up to get anything to fit, resulting in the awful back gap at the waist and too long inseams.
I'm glad I ignored the reviews, because they fit just like the other Hyphens I have - perfect. They are relaxed without being huge, as many of the boyfriend styles are, which means they actually fit me through the thighs and hips and aren't super baggy. For someone without my large hips/thighs these would be the perfect slightly relaxed look. I normally wear a size 32 in skinny or straight style jeans, a size 31 in relaxed jeans, but in this style of Pilcro I wear a 30. I've noticed most of Pilcro's jeans stretch almost immediately after putting them on, requiring that you size down one size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mamasprout I wanted a pair of relaxed jeans...
I ordered these jeans specifically because I wanted a pair of relaxed jeans like the picture shows and the title suggests, that is not what I got. What I recieved was a pair of skinny jeans, I ordered my regular size 27, and the waist was even a bit loose, so I could not have sized up. Also the rise of the jeans were quite low, which is not the impression I got from the model shot. I'm the mother of three young boys, and do a lot of my shopping online, I love my anthro tops, and will continue to buy these, but will have to consider carefully in the future before I buy pants online from anthro since this is the second pair of pants I have recieved within a short period that didn't match up with the fit in the photo. Anthros shipping is expensive especially considering you have to pay for the return as well. The overall quality of the product seemed excelent, so I wish the fit would have been as shown.

Rated 4 out of 5 by allegra808 Another Good Pair from Pilcro!
I've been looking for a pair of boyfriend type jeans for some time, but being short haven't had much luck finding one that fit correctly let alone flattered. When these Pilcros popped up, and especially in the absence of an AG option, they became a must try for me.
I ordered these in my usual petite denim size and found them to run true to size. They fit as shown in the catalog shot, so aren't exactly a slouchy cut. They do have a slightly higher rise and fit a little more squarely in the waist/hip area, reminding me a tiny bit of the Levi's from a couple of decades ago (not a bad thing really). The legs are also cut pretty straight. I would say these Hyphens are more boy fit than boyfriend fit. They're pretty cute, nevertheless. I think I may have to keep them.
The fabric is mid-weight and is hopefully sturdy enough to contain the little scrape holes in the thigh and knee. I'd hate to have an accident while kneeling down or scaling stairs. My one other small reservation is the back view could be better. I always find Pilcro jeans to look better from the front than back. Maybe it's just me? Keep tinkering with pocket shape, size and placement for the optimal rear, Pilcro!
Lastly, I'd like to point out the inseam length on the petite jeans is actually 28" unrolled. Only when cuffed with a wide cuff as pictured, does the inseam measure 23.5". But the jeans look good worn either way.
