Nice material/construction but weird fit

Verified Buyer Reviewed by greenkayak from Pittsburgh, PA on Wednesday, April 27, 2011
After reading other reviews I had some concerns about fit but since I have a very long rise and have trouble finding jeans that don't hang halfway down my hips I thought I would try these. I wear a 12 on a good day and a 14 on a bad one in virtually all brands but opted to get the size 17 in these since they seemed to run small. Though the denim and construction are quite nice quality, the fit is odd. The only person I can imagine who these would fit is singer Nicky Minaj. If you are very long-legged with a tiny waist and large hips and derriere, and don't mind jeans where the waistband comes halfway to your chin and that make your rear view look as big as a schoolbus (there are no rear pockets), these are for you. The waist in these size 17's is 29 inches and the hips are 45 inches. And if there is stretch in this denim it is barely detectable. They remind me of the "mom jeans" in the Saturday Night Live skits. Already packed them up for return.
