I chose a Ralph Lauren denim from Mood and it is extremely stiff. I'm hoping if I wash the shorts a thousand times they will loosen up a bit. Choosing fabric is hard.
I don't know why pants are so hard for me to gear up for mentally. I jump into everything else with both feet but jeans give me pause. I think they seem intimidating to think about, but this pair was truly easy! I'm not sure how often I will wear these but practice makes perfect.
