The search for jeans continues. My latest pair is Calvin Klein, slight stretch, flare, sit just below waist, nice dark wash, and (thank goodness) come in a 30-inch length. I found them at Macys. They were a bit more than I usually pay, but hopefully worth it.
I generally prefer bootcut because they don’t seem to get as narrow in the knee area, but the bootcut I found sat at the waist, which I cannot stand. (It has something to do with wearing a school uniform for eight years.)
