I buy these for my mother. The denim is strong yet stretchy & the fit's pretty good. She loves the black - calls them her formal jeans. I've also bought these as work jeans for me. Not quite a fashion fit but comfortable & practical.
The jeans I recieved was not the ones pictured. Returning them to kmart soon.
I took a chance to purchase on-line, read the reviews and I went down 1 size from my other jeans on the market - from size 12 to a 10 in these. They fit very modest - for my age group 60 - the comfort is unbelievable - so soft all over especially by my waist - does not dig in like the other brand names. They are truly great Jeans. Wash very well and no shrinkage or color loss. The way I put them into the washer is the way they come out. If you are from the baby boomer generation, I believe you will want one in every color available) I purchased the dark rinse first and then went and got the black pair (which goes dressier - I've worn the black to work with a nice shirt and it was fabulous - looked great and felt great all day long with no pinching any where.) If you are a younger person of course these will work great too - in that case I would suggest you could go two sizes down from your normal size if you want them close fitting. But, for us boomers I would suggest one size down only. You will look put together and be very happy with the comfort.
