If you’re a long time reader you’ll know that once upon a time I was a big fan of 7 For All Mankind jeans.

The thing that prompted a divorce (we are still friends) is that the style I loved oh so much would get a hole in the upper inner thigh area like clockwork. The concept of patching jeans on a routine basis got old so I had to find another option.

There was a short-lived Levi’s stint, but the one style I could fit in made me feel frumpy. Very frumpy. And for you Levi’s lovers, I get it. They have nice jeans. They just don’t fit my body type! It turns out when you have “athletic” legs and a booty, jeans discriminate big time.

So then I turned to AG Jeans. They have style. They are made from quality material. And I can actually fit in them! Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner!

I’ve been wearing The Graduate by AG Jeans for a while now and for the most part things are on point. And I’m thrilled that there are no holes to report.

Although, if I were designing the jeans there is one thing I’d change, and this is something you should take note of for your butt’s sake.

The pockets are too low.

Take a look at the picture below from their website.

AG Jeans

If you look carefully – yes, put your face really close to the screen so you can see the butt in zoom view – you’ll notice that the pocket dips nearly two inches below the crotch. That’s what I call an instant butt flattener!

AG Jeans should raise the back pockets, and other pertinent detailing about an inch and a half. Doing so would help those that have pancake butt, and would reduce the amount of butt flattening taking place.

No matter if you wear AG Jeans or not, pay attention to pocket placement. Your butt will be happy with you.
