I've never heard of a lot of the jeans you are talking about. Where do you find them and are they super expensive? I absolutely LOVE Silver jeans, but they are hard to find. I am very picky...short waisted, (low-rise or ultra low-rise) minimum 35" inseam (5'7"), hate stretch, hate flare. Yes, I have long legs for my height and a very short waist. My size in Silver is 29/35, but they only really have a couple of cuts that I like ("twisted" is my fav.). The Buckle has a few, but the BKE's pockets are too far apart. Jean shopping is NOT my favorite thing to do. I can try on 20 pair and not buy 1. I can't justify spending $250 on a pair of jeans either.
