BLAKE LOOSE FIT BOOT CUT JEAN
Given the phenomenal fit of the Dark- and Black-colored Blake Loose Fit Boot Cut jeans (see my 2 other reviews), I expected a lot from the Gray Rinse versions. Unfortunately they were a huge disappointment. Another reviewer said that the 36 W x 34 L ran very large. I wholly concur. For some reason the inseam is cut WAY too long; more like a 36 length. They actually drag against the floor unless you're wearing minimum 1-inch-heeled shoes. Also the seat is a bit baggy, and the waist is definitely cut bigger than the other colors. I even tried on a second pair to be sure the first one wasn't mislabeled but nope, same problem. Very strange! What's even stranger is that I tried them in a 34 waist and the length falls just right! Would have exchanged them had the seat not been a tad too tight. Likewise, the 36 waist x 32 inseam fell way too short!! Utterly mind-boggling that apparently all sizes except mine in this particular color appear to be cut right. It almost seems as though the manufacturer somehow botched the 36 x 34 sizing and Express decided to try and sell them anyway! Whatever the case, if that's your size and you're looking for a good fit in a gray jean, you might want to keep shopping. Sad to say, fit wise these just don't live up to the high standard - or cost! - of the Express label.

Great looking jeans. I was able to pull off quite a few looks with them.

I loved these jeans in the store so I ordered online for my husband. I ordered him a 36x34, and when they arrived, the jeans were absolutely huge. It was obvious that it was a manufacturer error, mismarked, or just made several inches larger than 36 in. I returned them to the store and the girl working in the store actually laughed at how huge they were. I ordered online because I wanted to avoid going to the store, but ended up there anyways:/

Great color!!! It's been hard for me to find a grey jean I like. This pair is exactly what I needed. Thanks.
