wow! that was my reaction when I put on these jeans. I fully expected to be sending them back. I figured they wouldn't fit right, wouldn't be comfortable, or simply wouldn't be worth the money. I was wrong. This is the most expensive pair of jeans I have ever bought, and now I'm addicted. The denim is lightweight, but it is ever so soft! Heavy denim tends to irritate me so I can't leave them on very long but wearing these jeans feels like you're not wearing anything.
