I have several pair of NYDJ jeans and have been happy with the way they look and fit. This time, however, I did not receive the item I ordered and was really disappointed. Although the invoice and the external tag were both marked "Boyfriend Jean," the inner label which is sewn into the back of the waist read "Legging."
When I first tried them on, I thought maybe they were "skinny boyfriends" that ran small. I didn't like the fit: they were uncomfortable and they kept riding up when I tried to roll them. They were also kind of itchy and had so much stretch that they looked skin tight. They looked nothing like the picture or the description online. When I saw the "legging" label, obviously I realized why they were not what I had been expecting. If you like skinny legging ankle jeans, you will like these, but if you want real boyfriend jeans, be wary!!! Apparently other customers have had the same experience when purchasing this product, so this problem definitely should have been resolved by now!
Although i read in the reviews that these jeans fit small, I took a chance and bought them anyway. They fit me fine, just as my other NYDJ jeans fit. I really like them. They're the right length to roll up or wear unrolled, and I'm very pleased with them.
I have become an NYDJ junkie over the last six months. Had never even seen these jeans before I saw the NYDJ jeans commercial last fall with the supermodel walking in the ballroom. They really do make you look slimmer. They are not so low cut, that you buldge out of the sides. Yet they definitely are not the high waisted mom jeans. They do seem to run pretty close to size. They seem a bit snug at first when you try them on, but they have the stretch material in them as well. I am 5'4" and 155 lbs and the size 10P always is perfect. This Loma Linda wash I have been watching for to be on sale. Originally on the NYDJ site they were $130. I felt like I got them for a steal on Amazon. The wash is perfect if you want a darker, yet somewhat faded out look. They do have a few distressed spots in the material for effect. I was not sure if I would like this, but it does seem to compliment the jeans just fine. Love, love this NYDJ jean.
