I haven't got the jeans yet, not in stock the ones I want, so as far as I know there's nothing wrong with the product. HOWEVER the problem lies in the sizing which is "actual" waist measurement. So rather that live in that happy ignorant place of the sizing I've "always had" I had to measure myself only to realise.... ... I'm getting fatter by the day !!!!! Gee thanks Takaami !!!!!
