I love these jeans! I'm really picky about my jeans too. Picked one pair up and tried them. I've come back twice to buy more. With as picky as I am, I couldn't resist getting more to hold on to when these wear out. I am 5"3' and the petite are perfect length. Super comfortable and washes well. Love how dark they are, too! At $10 a pop, I can't complain about anything!
