I absolutely love these jeans. They've got all the pros of old-fashioned jeans, but that bit of stretch makes them even more comfortable without becoming baggy. I often have trouble finding high-waisted trousers, especially jeans, that fit properly at the waist, but these are terrific. I got a second pair because my husband said they look terrific on me! The dark colour is easily dressed up with a jacket, but they're a favourite for lounging around the house, too.
