I love these jeans. I got them after Xmas (TJ Maxx, Free People, duh) with my sister who kind of coerced me into the purchase. I had deep concerns about their suspicious resemblence to flaired jeans, which I loathe. She convinced me that they're "wide-leg" and here I am, deeply in love with them. They're soft. They compliment my backside. What more could I ask?
