This is the first pair of non-slim/skinny jeans I've bought since 2008 and I love them! I'm happy to be free from those tight, "denim-colored leggings" that have been ubiquitous for the last 15 years. The fabric is soft and broken in, eliminating the need for any added "stretch." The detailing is superb. They've instantly become not just my favorite pair of jeans, but my favorite pants!
