Shadow Pockets a Miss For Me.
These jeans fit perfect, just the right amount of contour to the body, yet relaxed enough for my athletic thighs. Now! Although I am fit, and have a lean body, I'm in my late 40's, and the shadow pockets did not do anything positive for my rear end. The back pockets are quite low and visually dragged my butt down. The fabric is light, yet sturdy, and I imagine very comfortable to wear. I am a blue jean junkie, and would typically keep such a pair and have on occasional rotation, even with the questionable backside appearance. At this price point, I will reconsider, and send back. I cannot justify paying such a price, when I could own two smokin' pairs for that much money. If you have a very tiny or extremely perky behind, these may work for you.

Missed the Mark
I wanted to love these jeans and I put them on several times. The fit is perfect, ease where my athletic body needs ease and contoured where needed. However, the pocket placement only dragged my arse down visually. Its a cool accent and I like interesting details on my denim that isn't overkill, which I believe these may provide for a younger individual, but I am in my 40's and although lean and fit, these did nothing to promote a perky butt. Otherwise the fabric and fit were spot on. The price point is a little excessive for me to justify hanging on to these for the occasional wear, and as a denim lover, I would do that, but not with these, sadly I will send them back.

Favorite High Waisted Jeans!
These jeans fit to perfection. Even with the button fly and full front pockets there is minimal bulking. They hold their shape after extended wears and even in my late 40's I feel current without being inappropriate. These fit like all the other Mother denim I have TTS with a smidgen extra in the waist. It's a great all season blue, and on heavy rotation in my wardrobe, at present.

Like a Glove
I was slow to the high waisted style, but now that I have tried a few pairs, I am a convert. Maybe it is because I am closing in on 50 and my tummy is a little thicker and doesn't like the restriction or perhaps, they are just that flattering! This pair fits true to size even for my athletic body with muscular thighs, I felt no real binding. It was a personal preference that lost the one star for the rating. The fabric is a little stiff and the side seams are lighter and I just didn't like that aspect of the silhouette on my body. The fraying and holes are all reinforced and tasteful. Can't tell you about how they wear, as I quickly knew that these were not for me. But they are still beautiful jeans!

Go to Black Jeans
I have purchased and tried on many many pairs of black jeans in the prospect of finding the perfect pair.......and well this is one of them. A great mid rise jean that you can dress up or down. The fabric is sturdy yet soft and comfortable. They retain their shape with many wears, and fit true to size. No fading yet after several washes. This is my second year with this pair and they have held up very well. Time to go back on heavy rotation for the up coming winter season. I have an athletic build at 5'7" and 135 lbs I take a 28. I am quite often between sizes but opted for the smaller of my two sizes.

Balanced with a bit of Edge
I find James to be my go to denim. They fit my body well and look flattering. There is a bit of weight to these jeans, but super soft. They have give, and will stretch out after lengthy wear. There are no front pockets, which diminishes the bulk which I have experienced with my paige jeans that are similar. I am 5'7" and have an athletic build weighing 135lbs. Long torso and shorter inseam, I find these super flattering, and would recommend that if you are between sizes to size down. These area a dark grey, not a faded black, and will retain their colour.

Good Casual Piece
I like the print, and the fit. Has good length if you sport a long torso, as I do. I'm on the fence about the fabric blend and how it feels, but it launders really well. I will keep it on rotation for some time I am sure.

Fashionable, Not Functional
Great looking bag, but as a backpack it was awkward and limited as to how much you could adjust the straps. Beautiful leather, and design, but compartments were not as ample as I had hoped. I was looking for a stylish yet functional piece, and this didn't quite tick all the boxes for me.

A winner, but not quite a winter boot.
Dolce Vita boots are one of my favorites. They fit my wide foot comfortably, and the styling has just the right amount of flair without being over the top. This boot was to be a boot I could wear through out the winter. The shearling lining does not go into the toe box and defeats the purpose of being lined as a functional aspect to the boot. I also found the sole a bit rigid for my liking. The tread on the bottom is great for traction, and some of the stylish details make this a stylish boot with the right balance of chunkiness and clean lines. I cant justify the price, considering these will not keep my feet warm in the winter. If the lining had been throughout the entire boot, I doubt if these would have ever came out of rotation for the winter. I will be sending these back. Hopefully someone in a warmer climate can enjoy these.

Great Black Bootie with Edge.
I almost selected "larger than expected' on this review, as they are border line. They have a longer toe box, so if you have a narrow foot you may consider sizing down. I have a wide foot, with a narrow ankle, so I just added an insole and they felt perfect. They are a matt nubuck in the front and a smooth leather in the back of boot, both zippers function, so if you have a high instep you are in luck. Super comfortable heal, so these I will walk good distances without much strife. I'm always happy with Dolce Vita shoes!!
