I've been wearing mostly AE jeans for about 10 years and the different styles and changes in fits throughout the years, the quality has fluctuated a lot. My first ever pair lasted 3 years, several from about 2011-2013 only lasted a few months. Quality has definitely gotten better than ever. These jeans look and fit great and are so comfortable. I'm a stockier guy, and the last pair of skinny stretch jeans I bought from AE (probably 2015) had a LOT of extra space in the crotch area and it didn't look good and made my thighs rub together on the inside. These fit significantly better and give me no issues. I was also concerned about the length; I'm 5'9" and 32" on jeans is usually a bit too long, but 38x30 isn't sold in stores. On my last pair, the legs were impossible to keep up if I wasn't wearing shoes. These stay up no matter what, and stay skinny and stay comfortable. I'm really glad to see AE's quality return.
