I have a hard time finding jeans that fit me well and don’t accentuate all the wrong things about my figure (hello, nipped in at the knees so as to show my thighs in the least attractive manner) so I was pleased to find the Essential Jeans that the Gap is currently carrying. The jeans are straight legged, but not skinny straight legged. The cuff is wide enough to cover the amount of shoe I like to hide, but it’s not flared. The legs aren’t so wide, at least on me, that they swish when I walk, but they are wide enough to be weekend-comfortable. These are coffee shop/pub/grocery store jeans. And they come in a length short enough that I don’t step on the cuffs.
