This is what I call Jeans!! They are simply amazing! I love them. Such a fine material,strong as well and relaxed fit,not baggy though! Normal length as well so I very happy! The best jeans ever! Worth every penny!
My first Ariat jeans. Sent the boot cut back, which I normally love and wear in other brands, but the leg was too wide. The denim seems to be heavier and thicker somewhat than typical fashion jeans, which is GREAT and hard to find. The cut of the legs fit my upper thighs better for movement - meaning, the jeans don't tend to slide down as I walk. I like the no-gap lined waistband, the super deep pockets, even the coin pocket is deep and the back pockets are deep and wide enough to fit my nearly 6" cell phone with Otterbox. I love that the front pockets are sewn into the zipper, adding extra support and fit. Most jeans nowadays do not have that feature. The extra stitching on the outer thigh is great! My Levi's all eventually puckered at that spot, making them embarrassing to wear out. Being a more mature shaped woman over 50, these actually fit well in the right areas. Extra belt loops are really nice too, and keeps my belt from migrating. The only thing I would change is to offer Short in size 34. The regulars are too long, I wear them cuffed. I usually wear 31" inseams, and these are 33" I believe. I do wear street shoes/sneakers in them, not cowboy boots. The 92% cotton holds the cuff better than the 82% cotton. Also, PLEASE PLEASE offer a few color choices non-sanded/altered. Can I just have jeans that are all one color?? I've never been a fan of these sanded/altered/whatever else they do to jeans nowadays, not complimentary on me. The sanding on these jeans makes them feel somewhat rough on top of the thighs, but I kept them because of all the other good things and they fit me better than most anything else without having too much spandex.
Ordered 31Long at first - exchanged for 30Long. I’m 5’10” 173lbs and am usually a size12. I like need a 34” inseam to get a little break at the ankle and these are a smidge longer than that - they touch the ground barefoot and are perfect with shoes. A little give for stretch, but not “stretchy,” which I prefer because they don’t grab and fall down like “stretch” jeans do - these stay put and keep their shape. Very slimming. Nice pocket detail without being too blingy. Seriously, these are the best jeans I’ve owned in ages. Buy them!
I ordered the 28XL. I’m 5’11” 145, with proportionally longer legs than torso. Long jeans are always too short no matter where I buy them from. This is my second pair of X-long Ariat jeans (the other pair is boot cut) and I love them. If anything they are actually a little bit too long but I’ll take that over the Longs that are too short. For the first time ever I can throw my jeans in the dryer. These jeans came with no issues and look great on. A lot of reviews said they are great for curvy girls. Well I am definitely not curvy and Ariat jeans fit great, so tall slim girls these are for you too. The 28” waist is slightly too bit, unfortunately, Ariat doesn’t sell the 27s in X-long. With a run through the dryer and a belt the 28s are working out just fine. For someone who needs the length these jeans are worth every penny and are great quality.
The jeans fit true to size, and I had no problem with the anything with the jeans. I had just ordered a Short length without bootcut to wear with sandals or other shoes. However, on the first pair I ordered, I noticed that the inside seam on the right leg was noticeably off center by about one inch toward the bottom of the leg. I returned this pair, and I asked for a replacement. I was sent a replacement quickly and found everything to be the same with the replacement pair of jeans including the seam on the right leg. I suggest that all these jeans be reviewed for quality before anymore are shipped. I think that this may be a flaw in a production batch. I consider these to be irregular. Needless, with the white stitching, the fact that the seam does not run down the inside of the leg, but instead runs more toward the center of the front of the leg is quite noticeable. I own many pair of Ariat Jeans which I love. I just consider this to be a manufacturing error.
For what these pants cost, and how they are advertised, they ought to be perfect. They fit... ok. I have yet to meet a jeans mfgr who can get waist to thigh ratio right. They are loose in the waist, not terribly, but enough. And then they are so constricting on the thighs. And no, I'm not dis proportioned. I'm 5'11, 150 lbs. I have some curves, yes. At least they are long enough? That's worth 3 stars.
And it seems nitpicky but seriously - FIGURE OUT YOUR SEAMS. I absolutely hate when the outer seam flips from one way to the other, especially if the legs are going to insist on being so tight. It creates a knot that presses into my skin. But when you stitch it facing one way at the top and the other way at the bottom COME ON!!
I'll keep this pair because they are fine enough but I won't likely buy another.
