If anyone's looking for a low priced skinny jean, these are great. I got a pair for $44 and I would have paid more. They have a bit of spandex (1% I think), so they're stretchy and VERY comfortable. A typically nice levi's fit too (most of their cuts are pretty spot-on for what they're going for). The only wash I liked was a very dark blue (almost a blue-black), with dark stitching. I took the red tag off because it just wasn't working for me w/ this look. These are so dark that I don't think I'll ever wash them, lol- just some spot cleaning when necessary.
