I purchased two pairs of these jeans just to try them out. I have always worn another more expensive brand but gave these a try. 5 months later I returned to buy two more because they have been great! Very comfortable fit, not skinny, not too relaxed. I did notice that I had to go with a shorter size than I was used to. The usual 32 I wear were WAY too long. They are a bit lighter than other denim jeans but still feel thick. For the price, these cannot be beat!
