A new favourite
I only started wearing J Brand recently, and have bought them through Shopbop, as my preferred source. I am very pleased with the quality of the denim - soft yet substantial (meaning you feel held in nicely), with a perfect, what I term "dirty" blue wash (blackish dark blue). The gigi style is comfortable and versatile - easy to push into high boots, and fun to wear with desert boots in the spring. I am 5'9" tall and normally wear a 30 in Hudson/sevens, but find the J Brand a smaller cut usually, and so bought the 31. These are loose (as shown in the picture) and I need to wear a belt, but if you're handy with a needle, a couple of darts at the back and they fit beautifully - comfortably body-skimming.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

great basic
These socks are of very good quality, very comfortable to wear (no bunching, non-invasive smooth seam at the toe), and attractive! I wear an italian 41, american 10, and the "2" fits perfectly. My only regret is that I didn't buy more!!

an attractive pair of jeans
These jeans are made of good quality denim, thick and pliable. The rinse is the perfect dark of my very first (70's) levi's. The fit is perfect - not straight, more of a straight bootcut as mentioned by others, straight and snug through the knee then gently flaring out to a narrow bootcut. As for fit, I bought 31, am 5'9" with 38"-39" hips (more behind, less hip), and the fit is perfect, not at all tight; just comfortably fitted. The rise is not high, just not low. One caveat - the knee is a trifle too snug if you, like me, have larger bones, but loosens up with wear.

good belt
This belt is a good width, very substantial, and the buckle is unusual ,adding interest. The holes make it very easy to adjust for multiple uses. The colour is very attractive and works with almost any other colour, a true tan shade. I wear a 31 in seven jeans and bought a large to wear at the hip. My only issue with this belt is its smell - I have had it now for a week, and the "tanning" smell still hasn't remotely dissipated (I wonder if they use formaldehyde in the tanning process?), which, if you are sensitive to odours, could act as a deterrent. I don't know if it is true of every belt, but I am hoping that hanging it out in the sun several times will reduce the odour's impact.

a little roomy
These are a nice thicker denim, very soft, with very light distressing. I am about 5'9" tall and usually wear a 31 in 7 for all mankind jeans, and went with the same size here. They are about a half size big to begin, getting baggy in the rear by day's end. I correct this with a nice thick belt and wear them on days when I will be rolling around with my children, or days when I'm "bloated";). To get the sleeker fit, I should have bought the size 30, but like these anyway for days as mentioned.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

very comfortable
These boy shorts are very comfortable, just sit gently on you, rather than grabbing, and don't ever ride up. They are surprisingly not itchy either. The colour (granite) is very attractive when peeking out of the tops of lower-rise jeans and especially "army" pants. I am about 5'9" tall, wear a size 30-31 in 7 for all mankind jeans, and buy medium hanky panky boy shorts. I recommend that you only wear this boy short style on cooler days, as it can get a little sweaty on hot days - those days are for thongs or cotton undies.

just what I wanted
Just like my other C&E bottoms I sized down because at my regular size they just fall off (as is mentioned about the designers, their waistlines are very forgiving!). I am 5'9", narrow hips with booty, and wear a 31 in seven bootcuts, which I prefer to fit closer, not supertight. In these shorts I bought size 29 and they fit perfectly, very comfortable, not bunchy nor sloppy, and the fabric is soft. I was going to cut a pair of my C&E boyfriends for just this effect, but decided to splurge.

Nice shorts
I have other C&E bottoms, and these fit the same as the boyfriend cuts; size down at least one size. I am 5'9", narrow hips but definite booty, and wear a 31 in seven jeans (boot cut and straight styles), which I prefer to fit closer, not supertight. In these shorts I bought size 29 and they fit perfectly, a little slouchy, not sloppy; comfortably loose. Any bigger and they would be too bunchy in the crotch. They only fall short (forgive the pun) in the quality of fabric - very lightweight - not light enough to show details of the lace in your underwear but enough that they will wear fairly quickly if you are a sporty girl. Colourwise, I bought the nude; nice shade, more of a stone colour.
