I am in love with these jeans! My husband has 4 pairs of Raleigh Jeans in 3 different fits, all of which have worn beautifully over time, but this is my first pair. I ordered them to replace two pairs from other brands that had served me pretty well but didn't fit perfectly and had broken zippers. These jeans are expensive, but they are really well-constructed, and I admire the values of craftsmanship and artisanship that the company represents. I expect the price-per-use to justify the cost over time. I also like buying locally made NC products. And, hey, I'm just vain enough to appreciate that they make me look as good as they feel!
The fit is perfect. The materials and construction are clearly a cut above my other jeans. Can’t wait to visit the store and select another pair.
Love them so much! Worth every penny. I've worn them every day for weeks, including daily hikes. Glad I sized down one size per instructions. I could barely zip them the first day (had to lay down on my back to get them zipped, 1980s style!), and they were uncomfortably tight the first few days of wear, but soon loosened up and are even slightly big now.
