These jeans look way better on the model than they do on me. I'm 5'8" and 125 lbs, and while I usually wear 26 in True Religion, CoH, 7's, etc. but I had to order 3 sizes larger to get the right fit (however, I'm a soccer player and have more muscular thighs and calves so skinny jeans are usually tighter on me). Definitely suggest ordering up a size. Otherwise, these are truly a unique pair of jeans.
