This review is from: Gloria Vanderbilt Women's Amanda Classic-Fit Straight-Leg Twill Jean (Apparel)
I have been buying Amanda Stretch Jeans for several years, and the only problem I have with them is the stunning inconsistency in size: it seems to matter where they are made. I have just bought one Short and one Average pair (both black). The Short, made in Pakistan, is about one or two full sizes smaller than the Average, which was made in Kenya and fits fine. An older pair I have, made in Madagascar, is the best fit. Too bad we can't choose the location of manufacture -- or too bad GV can't, in some way, have consistent "quality assurance." If you don't mind establishing a personal relationship with the UPS driver, GV Amanda jeans are great.

I also had the same problem. The jeans that are made in Sri Lanka fit better than the ones made in Egypt. The ones from China have VERY short pockets and a difference in material even though it has an identical listing.
I used to be pleased, but now it's hit or miss.

Yes, yes, yes. These jeans are all over the place in terms of length of the leg and fit/cut depending on where they are manufactured/made. I've had this problem for many years. The "short" varies in length dramatically. I too an in a medical profession and wear these instead of scrubs. They hold up very well with multiple washings and the white actually stays white. The sizing is just tough to judge or predict.

I don't know where you purchased the ones made in Sri Lanka. The ones made in Egypt have a good fit, but let me know where the purchased the ones you say have a better fit

I thought I was the only one who noticed if it comes from one country make the size 14, if it's from " say Egypt" make the size 16! This should be controlled by the company
quality control. Too many complaints in this area for them to ignore it.

Just adding a VERY MUCH SO! I'm a Sri Lanka, my sister's an Egypt. And then there's Jordan sizing, Pakistan sizing....Luckily(?), most sizes have a run produced in each country, and most places I've bought them will have a mixed country shipment, so you just have to keep looking. Bizarre, but kind of fun, but unfortunately probably says bad things about their production practices and worker treatment.

jean lover says:
Amen to the size/country problem. I recently ordered a 14 and a 16, one for me and one for my sister and they were made in different countries and the SAME size! I order on line so this is such a pain that I will have to find another jean.

So glad to hear that others have this complaint - I started to wonder if my weight was fluctuating from day to day! I still love the jeans, but I find I have to try on each pair before I buy because I can't count on my proper size actually fitting correctly!

you are absolutely right. I have been wearing Gloria Vanderbilt practically all my life and it is true, the size varies according to in what country the jean was manufactured.

Holy Hannah! I'm going home to check out where mine were made. I've got several pair that each fit differently. I could never figure out why. I'm sure it's this. The ones I'm wearing now are the slimmest fit I have - they were made in Jordan.
