I bought these from another store on sale about a year ago and still absolutely love them. They are pitch black without any visible stitching and they have real pockets (something lacking in many skinny jeans recently). J Brand does skinny jeans better than anyone else and these are no exception. They fit like a glove and still look perfectly black. I wash them inside out and on low heat or air dry them if I have the time. The material blend is perfect for preventing the usual stretching out that happens with jeans as these still fit snug after many wearings. I highly recommend if you can get your size! A definite staple in my closet...
