Honestly, I love how they feel...I have had a hard time finding denim the past year or so that isn't too big in the thighs while being correct in the waist. Maybe, though - others will think they are too tight? I think part of my problem in the past is that I always bought my jeans too big, I am really a 29 or 30 and I was buying 31 or 32. I took those pics immediately upon receiving the jeans, aka, that's the first minute I had them on. I wore them around all day and they have loosened slightly, but I think that fit is ideal for certain looks and with certain boots. I will say, however, that a super skinny jean (at least with my rectangular frame) begs for some volume on top. I think they look very good with a blazer or pea coat or leather on top for balance, but this is generally true for most skinny pants IME. You can't beat the color, they go with everything. IDK, let me know if you think they are too tight - I am also a runner so my legs are muscular, which may not suit such a skinny fit. Would love to hear all your opinions.
