I typically hate myself in jeans, yet tried these on a couple of years ago (2007?) at a store and was amazed. I am glad to see Revolve still stocks them and hope more 26es arrive with the new April shipment! The dark wash resists trends and the fit looks nice with many styles - classic/preppy, Heburn-esque/retro-European, and structured/modern. The look and length also make them comfortable tucked into tall boots. I'm 5'5" and the length on me is great for heels, as well as flatter sandals and ballerinas. Given they are the only pair of blue jeans I have owned for 2 years, it's obvious they are made well!
I normally wear a 28 in COH so I bought these in the same size. I would have bought a 29 but I got them on clearance for $90 and all they had was 28. The 28 is a bit snug. I have a big butt and thighs and a small waist and I have had to wear these around the house for weeks just to get them to loosen up! If you are not curvy or very muscular in the legs, then they will probably be your favorite skinny jeans! I love that they can be tucked into boots and worn with sexy heels because it makes them so much more versatile than my other skinny jeans that have to be folded up in order to fit into my boots. They are very simple, so they allow the shoes and the rest of the outfit to shine. I'm 5'2'' and I felt like they were the perfect length for me. They hit right at the ankle and look great with 4 inch heels! The biggest drawback, but also expected, is the transfer from the wash. You have to wash them a ton in order to keep them from staining clothes, furniture, etc. One of my favorite coach bags has dark blue on one side now because I was foolish enough to think I had washed them enough!
