SUPER DUPER soft and comfy! These guys are the real deal. Release high-low hem denim short with a 5" inseam - if you don't like the hi-lo in the back,simply snip off the 1/2 inch - the hem is a raw hem, so they'll look exactly the same as the front if you trim that off. Mid-rise. Fit same as denim skinnies I had previously with leg opening slightly wider so it doesn't cling. I can do the 10 or the 12 but the ten were a bit too snug for my liking with shorts. If you’re in between sizes, i would size down one. There is plenty of stretch to accommodate in these!
