After a few disappointments with Levi's (don't know what's going on with their quality control department). I searched around and read a few good thing about these jeans so I decided to get a pair. Really good decision. The fit is perfect, the hip and waist area are just right (not hugging/squeezing areas they shouldn't) and when they say boot cut they mean boot cut. The thigh area provides just the right amount of freedom without looking too baggy. I will be buying a few more pairs to swap out for a few of my current Levi's jeans that are way past retirement.
