Inconsistent sizing when not made in the USA
on July 28, 2014
I have a number of pairs of NYDJ Marilyn Straight Leg jeans, all of which fit perfectly and all of which were made in the USA. I can wear a size 4, but a size 2 fits me best. I love the fit and feel of NYDJ Jeans, so when I saw these in Stone I confidently ordered a size 2. When they arrived, to my shock, they were huge on me. I must have had 2-3 inches to spare around the waist. I had read an earlier review that some NYDJ pants ordered from Amazon turned out to be made in China and did not fit well. I looked at my new size 2 pants and sure enough - "Made in China". I took a chance and exchanged them for a size 0 and was pleasantly surprised to find they fit well, slightly tight, but with the little but of spandex they are fine. I checked the label and the size 0 pants were made in the USA! It appears NYDJ needs more quality control on those items made in China. There is no way that the size 2 I bought was a typical size 2 compared to my other NYDJ size 2 jeans. It would be helpful to know before ordering online whether you are getting a pair made in the USA or one made in China - there clearly is a difference. Without that, I no longer have the confidence to order these pants from Amazon or anywhere else online.
