With a slim cut through the hips, the pair smooths and accentuates in the right areas. Front and rear pockets are fully functional. Color doesn't fade too much, even darker washes of this pair. Extra-wide belt loops can accommodate belts of various sizes. Designed to last.
Jeans arrive with a peculiar industrial smell that required repeated washing to dissipate.
Ever-popular mid-rise with a no-gap waistband. Made with cotton, viscose, polyester, and elastane for multi-directional stretch. Has a soft, smooth finish that gets progressively softer in the wash. Hems fit the calves well and look great with any type of footwear. Available in a dozen washes.
The seat is generously cut and some wearers felt this resulted in unflattering sagging.
Made from premium denim that retains its shape well in the wash. Button fly is a unique detail that sets the design apart from other pairs. Wearers say the wide leg is effective at allowing airflow and keeping them cool in warmer weather. Pair has a vintage appearance that gives them some edge.
The cut and design isn't universally flattering, especially with a super-snug waistband.
Waist and hip areas have "ab solution" technology, which smooths the belly and eliminates muffin tops. Quality is evident with even, attractive contrast stitching. Medium thickness and breathable material. Runs true to size and the pair is very easy to break in with a couple of wears.
Not every wearer felt they were true cropped jeans, since hem can be unrolled and worn as regular jeans.
The waist genuinely hits at the smallest area for a flattering fit. Washes well and won't end up pilling like other mostly cotton pairs. Pockets are offset to create an hourglass silhouette. Many wearers felt this cropped pair looks great with ankle boots and high heels.
Thighs are cut unusually narrow. Seams didn't feel as well-made as expected.
