Sizes differ too much
on August 11, 2016
I have worn these jeans for years and never had issues before. After purchasing a pair of these jeans at Kohl's last year, I found after the first pair wore out, the next pair weren't as durable. My thighs rub together since I am a bit overweight, and after a couple of months, the jeans were thinning out where my thighs rubbed together. This is an issue I didn't have with these jeans before. I noticed that the material felt like it had more stretch to them. While it made for a comfortable fit, it also made for easier wear and tear.
I decided to try them again thinking perhaps the jeans weren't all made with the same material. Being I couldn't find them locally in my size, I ordered them through Amazon. I ordered my size, and when I received them, I was shocked that they were swimming on me. I kept them anyway because I figured they would shrink after a couple wash and dryer sessions. While they did shrink, they were still a bit loose, but manageable, so I kept them.
I went to order another pair about 5 months later on Amazon because the pair I had, while loose and needing a belt to keep them on, still started wearing out in the same area as the other pair I had. This time, I went with the next size down.
The next size down was way too small. It was the same brand and style, but the difference in fit from one size to the next down was way off. The 16's were way too large, and the 14's way too small. I eventually switched over to Levi's in size 14. They fit perfectly.
