I received the pants yesterday.
They’re (heavy sigh…) fantastic. They fit perfectly, they’re stretchy and comfortable, and they look great. They are fiancée approved.
I should let you know, dear reader, that I have lost around 15 lbs since I ordered the original pants. I’m mostly just gloating there, but also it may say a bit about the sizing. I’m not exactly the same size as I was when the original Raw Denim version arrived, and so comparing the sizes of the Rivington and Mosco jean my be a little skewed. However, I still wear my other pants, I haven’t dropped sizes otherwise, so I think the comparison still stands. The Rivington pants were cut VERY slim vs. the Mosco.
So after all that, I have new jeans. I would not wish this process on anyone, but the end result is great. Make sure you use the try-on option, even if you don’t think you need to! It’s probably the easiest way to get around this. Also, I’d spring for 2 day shipping. It’s way too long otherwise.
