Bought the saddle pants and they arrived yesterday. Not even two full days of wear, and these are now my favorite fitting pair of jeans. The combination of the very forgiving denim, which stretches out just the right amount in all of the right places, and the not-too-slim but still slim cut, make for jeans that are both comfortable and flattering. If you sometimes go for the "straight tapered" or "weightlifter" cut, don't be afraid of these.
I sized up one from my usual at Jeremy's suggestion and I think that was the right call. TTS would have worked, too, but would have probably been a bit too restrictive.
