I like the softness of Joe' Jeans and I got these on sale. I'm short so these look like normal skinny jeans on me. I'm 5"3 and they don't finish on my ankle but this is why I get these jeans so that I don't have to take them up! The bad part is that when you get them they smell AWFUL! Like a strong cheap dye smell. I washed them and hung them out so many times it took about a month before I wore them. I don't know if it's something they do before they ship internationally or what so I just recently purchased another pair of Joes Jeans on sale and the same thing has happened! My new pair are outside on the line as I type- so be warned! It takes ages to get that smell out!
