This is probably the 10th pair of Denizen jeans that I own. I find that the Denizen jeans fits me very well and cost less than Levi's which fits me well too. The sizing is pretty accurate. The one big difference is the price during sales offer. The material is soft and slightly stretchable and the colour of this particular pair is like seasoned black and not midnight black. However, I truly believe that it would take many washings to get relatively clear laundry water. Just see my attached pictures of the black powder dust that came off the jeans when I shook it hard. Lol!
