These pants are low waisted & run true to size. I purchased the 27 in the Dark Metal Blue color & would say they are a women's long length. As you can see from this photo I took, they have a distressed patch of denim on the left leg. After months of washing it has not grown or fallen apart. The back pockets are positioned slightly lower than other jeans that I have purchased & over all I give this product 5 stars.
