I was SO excited to get these jeans. I have the Kut knit Jennifer's and love love LOVE them. I was eager to have a black skinny with a nice "broken in" wash. These fit fantastic. They are true to size (in many Kut styles I wear a size down, but Jennifer is right on, and I wear my true size). They were long enough for my long legs (although I could always take an extra inch, these weren't awkwardly short or anything). The rise is perfect - not mom-jean high, but comfortably high enough that nothing peeks out. BUT...the wash absolutely broke my enthusiasm. The outer seams running down the legs had what looked like a lightening strike or spider web bleached into them. The image online looked like just general wear down the seams (I love it). These looked like maybe halloween costume jeans... not everyday fashion. That's just my mid-life-30-something opinion, but I couldn't see myself EVER wearing such a wash. I'm so bummed... I REALLY wanted these to look just like the picture. So bad so that I almost re-ordered them, but then decided the likelihood of them looking the same was too great. So disappointed. I really thought I had a win with these - but I was so wrong!
