Arizona Relaxed blue jeans from J.C. Penney have been the only brand that I've bought for years. They have always fit and worn well.
I'm guessing in order to increase profits they decided to reduce the amount of material from the crotch up to the top of the pants. I measured the zipper length on a recently purchased pair and discovered that the zipper has been reduced by approximately 3/4 of an inch.
This change in design has severely affected the comfort of the jeans. There are very few 57 year old men who wants the feel of low waisted pants.
This *** move from some bean counter has caused me to seek another brand of blue jeans.
