    Promising review: "I just received a pair of these in 'Jive Ship' and I couldn't be happier with them. I love the color and fit, the wash goes with pretty much anything and they have a timeless look (as in, when I think 'jeans' these are the image of jeans in my head — style and color). I really recommend these, just make sure to take your measurements before ordering!" —JJ94
