I was sent these jeans several weeks ago for review. I haven’t bought any jeans in well over a year, and the past several pairs have been J Brand, so I was really excited to try a new brand on. While shopping with a client at Neiman Marcus, the salesman told us that DL 1961 jeans do not stretch out and you should not size down in these. Sometimes I teeter between two sizes, so I went with the size up. I have worn them about 5 times over the past couple of weeks and I must say that these jeans do not stretch out like some of my other jeans. They are comfortable and they maintain their shape well. I have yet to wash them, but will share how they wash when I do. Don’t judge! My only complaint is that I wish the rise was a bit higher, like 1/2 an inch higher. If the rise were just a bit higher, I would consider these jeans to be perfect. Have you tried DL 1961 jeans yet?
