I was a big fan of the boyfriend jeans long ago, until they only came in slim fit and they felt too tight on my calves. With the Elysian stretch denim, I love them again. They are so comfortable and definitely hold their shape so much better than the regular denim. They fit true to size for boyfriend cut, but if you are not familiar with the boyfriend fit they will feel a little bigger than typical jeans these days. I'm 5'10 and the tall fits me perfectly with a couple rolls in the hem. They are a little pricey for me so I usually wait for a good sale, but honestly I would pay full price for these I like them so much.
