These are well made jeans, and if you like heavy weight denim, these are what you would want. I think because of being white, you WOULD WANT a thicker denim anyway. But, these are very small in the waist. If you carry your weight in your waist/hips, it will be a struggle to get on in your normal size. I take an 18 in Silver jeans -- even slim fit ones. There was no way these could get done up in an 18.
