I'm very picky when it comes to my jeans - always been tough to find the right fit and almost never happens for me. These jeans fit great right out of the box. The "try on size" was a lifesaver. I was buying these jeans to have a nice pair of jeans that could be "dressed up" with a collared shirt, jacket and brown cap toe shoe for a work conference. Felt/fit great!
First time I have ever had guys ask me what brand of jeans I was wearing and where to get them. Worth every penny!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
