NYDJ Basic Bootleg Jeans, Indigo
Best I have ever bought
I took a gamble buying these on line as they were the most I have ever paid but absolutely delighted with them. Wonderful quality and fit and so comfortable have just spent an entire week in them on holiday. Definitely going to buy some more in different colours and styles. Highly highly recommended.

Worth the extra money
Not Your Daughter's Jeans may not be the cheapest option when buying jeans, however these jeans are definitely worth paying a little bit extra for. The quality of the jeans is fantastic, not hard and uncomfortable like some makes can be and they truly make you feel like they are a size smaller.

Not up to usual NYDJ standard
I love love love NYDJ jeans ever since I discovered them about 6 years ago. I've had lots of pairs, and am still wearing the first pair I bought - that's how well they usually last. But the fabric in this particular pair of jeans hasn't behaved like my other NYDJ have, it's gone all saggy and floppy around the legs so like another reviewer, they're relegated to At Home only status. It won't make me stop buying NYDJ but I will check the fabric content in future.
BTW the NYDJ cut suits in-and-out figures rather than apples, ie where you have a small waist and a larger bum/tum/hips. I think the sizing has got even kinder recently - I've dropped even further according to NYDJ, but not to my other usual clothes brands (or the scales, worse luck).
If John Lewis are reading this, NYDJ make jeans in shedloads of different colours and fabrics but they only seem available in the US. I bought a pair of ultra flattering cords some years back and would love to replace them, but it seems a bit OTT going to the US to buy a pair of jeans. John Lewis - please supply!

Poor quality fabric that stretches- not usual NYDJ quality!
I was delighted with the fit when I bought these- I was sure to buy them fitting very snugly to allow for that little bit of give that you get with all jeans. This is about my 4th pair of NYDJ jeans and the previous pairs always lasted and washed really well. These however are made of a lighter weight fabric (only 80% cotton, 19% polyester and just 1% elastene- the others have much more cotton and a bit more elastene...) and they seemed a good idea for hotter weather. BUT, after just one hour of wearing, these jeans go so baggy everywhere that they look two sizes too big! For such an expensive pricetag, you expect the jeans to perform and wear far better than this. Like a previous reviewer, this particular pair has been a total waste of money and will have to be used around the house. And I'll need to buy some other jeans!!

These jeans g-r-o-w
I would recommend going several sizes smaller than you think you'll need, as these jeans stretch hugely on wear. I bought the UK size 10, which fitted perfectly in the shop, then wore them for a weekend away. After 2 hours sitting on the train, the crotch had sagged, and I was having to yank up the waistband - by the end of the day the knees and thighs were baggy & saggy. I've tried giving them a couple of hot washes, but they don't shrink back like normal jeans - each time I wear them, they get a bit bigger. So, after only a couple of weeks, my new jeans are relegated to 'slobbing round the house jeans'. Very disappointed.

Great jeans but overpriced!
I love these jeans and find at the age of 43 they flatter me in a way no others can do. On a trip to New York I purchased them in Bloomingdales at half the cost they are in the UK. I do buy them from John Lewis as I can't fly to NY every time I need a pair. They last about a year before the colour and knees start to appear worn. The high waist is so fluttering but I always have to have them taken up in the leg as I am only 5ft 5in tall.

Lovely jeans and impressive web services
I tried these jeans on in store but my size was not available so had to order them online. They came with in 24hrs and were delievered to my local waitrose which made it a bit easier for me to collect them. They are lovely jeans fit well and hold you in in all the right places. ;0)

Simply the best
Having spent years looking for well fitting jeans I was recommended NYDJ by a friend, I left them in the wrapping for three days not wanting to be disappointed, eventually tried them on wow!! these are the only jeans I have been able to wear without altering first, lenghth perfect (am quite short) waist perfect, hips perfect (usually if one fits the other doesn't) thighs fitted and I have to say I look and feel great in them. These jeans are made for women.Pricey but well worth it they are definately on my christmas list!!!!
