Great fabric, Great fit...Levi's, you've won me back!
on December 19, 2013
I have not worn Levi's in more than 15 years but they were once a staple wardrobe item for me. When my favorite Lucky Brand jeans wore down and were unrepairable/patchable, I caved, and bought these - deciding to take a chance on Levi's again and LOVING the lower price! The fabric is nice and thick enough but not quite as thick as a Lucky Brand but similar perhaps more to a 7 For All Mankind pair I have. I agree with another reviewer that Levi's needs to return to a USA made product and offer a thicker fabric...I would pay more for both to happen! The color is as expected. The length might be about 2" longer than I would have expected in this size but I can wear these rolled for casual or with high heels or high stacked-heel boots for a more dressy look.
I am giving this 4 stars (not 5) for the following reasons:
- length is about 2" longer than I would have expected
- the back pockets are not designed like shown (although they are ok, they have a weird 1/2 cut corner that is odd...I just wear longer shirts, jackets or sweaters to cover up the odd design because otherwise they fit great and look great)
- the material is a bit thinner than I would expect from a decent, seasoned jean manufacturer (but I guess you get what you pay for and these were definitely a STEAL at the price I paid with the Levi's Sale on Amazon)
Would I recommend them? Absoltuely - but be alert to the length! I am 5'3", slim, about 129lbs, and I have longish legs and while I have some curves and hourglass shape, I am not overly curvy, do not have a large rear, and am not overly lean and straight either. I typically wear a size 4 and regular length (29")...in this case, I really could have gone with the Short length and been quite happy to still wear with some lower heels but have more flexibility to wear with flats or running shoes too.
