Rated 2 out of 5 by BeG61 Cheap button, rivets, and zipper
Okay, the style of these jeans is amazing. The very trim legs are great. Gone are the days of those too loose jeans that only fit in the waist. That said, I am very disappointed in how j.crew has cheapened the things that really matter in denim. The zippers are cheaper, not YKK anymore, now using Ideal zippers which are just not as good, especially for denim. Denim gets abused, they need good zippers. This new pair: Zipper stuck in up position; button hole too small. The buttons are no longer good quality J.Crew buttons, now they are no name, very cheap looking buttons. The rivets are also very cheap, no J.Crew name on the rivets either. In all I expect these jeans to last no more than one year. Sorry, but I expect better from a brand that was basically made famous by its jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Batman 4 season distressed dark worn denim
The cut of the 484 jeans are amazing, far superior than a lot of pricier brands. These dark worn jeans have a great color, distressing, drape and feel. The more you wear and wash these the better they become. I like the character of these. In my humble opinion, all 484's are a must buy, these are a wardrobe/closet essential.
Side bar: Would really like to see some more 484's heavily distressed, tore and tattered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LarryInBrookline Agree with Batman review, outstanding jeans
I've been wearing these for the last two years. Fit is perfection and there has been no degradation over time. I disagree only with Batman's wanting more distressing, I like these fine. Best jeans I've ever had, hands down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cl0ak My Favorite Jeans
You know that pair of jeans that when you come home from work you immediately undress so that you can put them on? These are those jeans. Unbelievably comfortable. I can't believe they are denim. And the cut is fantastic too--you will look so great in them. I like that they are dark and only slightly worn, so you can dress them up without looking out of place and dress them down and still look just as good. Really versatile. When I wore one pair out I immediately ordered another and it is exactly as good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Howie A Fit That's Too Good To Be True
Yet ... It's true. When I tried on my first pair of J.Crew 484 jeans, I was disappointed in myself: "Why didn't I discover these sooner?" The fit of these jeans are unbelievable, and people on the street will wonder if you get your jeans tailored. I have contemplated bringing my old (non-J.Crew) jeans to the tailor, but figured the cost of the service would outweigh the cost of the jeans, so I never really bothered taking the trip. Now, I never have to worry about that because J.Crew has provided me the most well-fitting jeans I've ever purchased. (This is my third purchase.)
