Where do I even start? I used to have a great pair of 31MWZRS until they wore out. I searched for the exact same jeans, but Wrangler no longer makes them. Sure, they make the 31MWZ model, but it is NOT the same as the old one with the small knife pocket on the right leg! I finally came across a pair of 31MWZ's in a local shop in CO (I don't buy unless I can try them on, and being 32x36, there are few places that carry my size). My first disappointment was that there are now only three lousy colors. Seriously?! You can make other jeans in a dozen colors, but these you only make in two cruddy dark blues and a black? I tried them on and the fit was decent. Not as good as my other set, but they would work. One big issue is finding jeans that are comfortable, but don't have a gigantic leg opening. I do not want my jeans dragging on the ground around my boots! Everything that is labeled "boot cut" are too big for anything but my hiking boots, and everything that is "slim" is skin tight. I ended up buying two pairs of these because the fit was close enough to what I wanted. I got the lighter of the blues in the hopes I could get it to fade out a bit quicker. After I get home, I take the tags off (I mean, they fit, right? What else do you need to worry about?) so I could start wearing them and breaking them in. I hadn't worn them for five minutes when I discovered the biggest reason these jeans are trash: the front pockets are for a child's hands! My cell phone (which is not large) barely squeezed in the front left pocket, and if I tried to put my hand in, the opening of the pocket was so tiny I almost couldn't get my hand out because my wedding ring snagged at the top! On the right side, if I had my pocket knife in my pocket (as every red-blooded American male should) I literally couldn't even fit my hand in that pocket!! Atrocious!! Now I'm stuck with two useless pairs of jeans that will never get worn, and I'm still searching for something that fits!
