    I have a few for that same purpose and I'm a fan. Not too slim but far from baggy so go TTS IMO

    Don't sleep on the skinny fit tapered. Might be the most perfect pair of denim I've tried on. It's very comparable to Geller's type D denim, which is what I've been primarily wearing, but at a fraction of the price, it's a no brainer. Got the dark gray one, and the hem, the knee, thighs and waist are pretty much perfect, and there is just enough of spandex or poly or whatever that it's comfortable out of the box.

    Also tried on the ...

    slim fit stretch tapered and the top block wasn't that sharp, felt sloppy, but definitely more room there if you want it. But the skinny fit already has stretch to it, so it's not really needed.
    legging jean, which just seemed not worth it. Lower price point and the whole thing just felt cheaper.

    I got a pair of those today and sadly don't fit. Waist is huge and my quads and calves feel so tight in them. The fabric is really nice though for $39. Wish they made a larger cut in them.

    sweatpants are ok, tapered fit, good thickness, sturdier the last two or three kinds. The slim stretches are exactly like the leggings, I can't tell the difference.

    I mean, from the pics on the email with the models, do they really think those fits looks good?

    Seriously.

    Tried them on in-store. Fit was okay, worst material so far.

    As a guy with larger thighs and seat, the stretch tapered jeans are a godsend. The fabric feels a little light, so we'll see how long they last--but for $29.90 I can deal with whatever.

    As a guy who can never find jeans that fit my thighs, I'm intrigued. The leggings were too tight for me. How big are your thighs? What size jeans are you?

    My thighs are around 25'' and I sized up to a 34--it's a bit loose in the waist, but I certainly like the fit, and it's really easy to move around/sit down.

    I can never get used to the "feel" of the fabric with their stretch pants, somehow they don't seem as breathable as 100% cotton trousers. Anyone else have that problem?

    i was offput by the feel too, but i always assumed it was just that i never wear anything with stretch as pants. Maybe there's more to it than that.

    skinny fit tapered?

    is that what they are calling the stretch or the skinny or the slim on the website?

    I tried on the leggings a few weeks ago at the store and was hoping to pick up something similar.

    Looking to get a pair of these but unsure what my waist would be. How does the waist size measure up against Levi's or N&F?
