I absolutely adore these jeans. I own 2 pairs in black. Volcom jeans are the only jeans that fit my body type well. These jeans are flattering to the bum for sure. I have short legs, so i just fold the bottoms up a bit and they look fine. They also make me look like I actually have legs, or that my legs aren't swimming in extra fabric.
These jeans are good for almost any event, they are extremely comfortable and once you break them in, they fit your body like a glove.
I'm possibly thinking about a third pair...I love them that much :)
