"AH! I almost freaked out when I saw that these had come back in stock. I bought them over a year a go in 25 and lost some weight so they have become far too big on me. I re-ordered 24s (5'1 96 pounds) and can't wait to get them. FP pants always start out tight but then loosen up over time (because of this I never recommend sizing up, but as a brand they always run smaller than your average label, a major plus for me because I'm so tiny). Over the past year they have remained just as black and just as in good condition as ever. I always have to get these hemmed because they are incredibly long but it's worth it. I ALWAYS go back to FP jeans, they can't be beat, price-wise and quality-wise and I own some very expensive jeans!"
