Please excuse my shirtless doll in the photos. I didn't want any distractions from the item being discussed, so I dressed her ONLY in the blue jeans.
Okay, so, from the front: very nice bootleg jeans! You know how the Sparkly Tunic & Jeans Outift has flared jeans with distressing on the legs? These are a dark wash all around, and have nice straight legs, like a bootcut almost.
There are beltloops for a sash or belt, and 5 pockets! The small pocket on the front has a red embroidered star, which is WAY CUTE. I never noticed it in photos of the jeans before (partly why I did these photos without a shirt or anything for Bea).
Two views of the back, now. Again, very classic styling. There is an AGP logo stitched onto the right back pocket, and you can see better how these are bootcut - a very minimal flare to go over the shoes at the bottom. I love how these aren't all tight at top, but more relaxed looking.
Also, they don't seem to be very low cut, which is great for the shorter tops!
Finally, the insides. Unlike the Sparkly Tunic jeans, these do not have elastic in the waistband. They do have the AG logo on a dark blue grosgain ribbon stitched to it, though, in alternating red and white. As you can see in the photo, the AG tag is down in the middle of the crotch, which would be uncomfortable for a real girl, but luckily these are dolls!
As for the closure: there is a false snap button on the front of the fly, but it closes with a long strip of velcro. It's the regular one, not the anti-pull velcro, so be careful if you have anything knit that comes in contact with it.
My friend is letting mee borrowhers and the band in the inside that says American girl is written all in red with a small white star. Also They close with a snap and then there is velcro for the fly.
These must be a second version, then! The code on the hangtag has a 2 at the end, which led me to believe that they were a second version when I first saw them, but I didn't think the difference would be that much. How interesting, that they changed the closure to a snap.
I love my American girls and my rabbits

Rabbits: too many to name!
I got these in 2005 around...August? The first time at AGPNY and the first outfit I ever bought for my girls. They were a little loose so I was happy to see my favorite shoes there (high tops) came with a belt!
I love these jeans! I only had the jeans from the ready for fun outfit so the embroidery clashes with some things. I like these jeans, because they can be worn with anythiing!!!! I cannot tell you how much I LOVE them!!!!! A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Does anyone know if these jeans are still available. I would love to get a couple of them?
I just found a pair today at AGPC. My guess is that stock is running low. They only have the roll-up style on all of the displays but I found ONE pair mixed in with the others and grabbed it so fast! I'd ask if you're in a store. They might have a few lingering in the stock room.
I tried them on couple of my girls and they fit so nicely! I hope the make some more of these.
Here are the jeans on Katya. I think they look a bit funny on her. I also would prefer straight-leg/skinny to bootcut, but I guess it's because these jeans were introduced a few years ago. They are much bettter than the jeans of the Blue Jean Basics outfit, though.
When I got mine today (I got them from a board member) and put them on Katya, though, I was confused. I thought at first I had received the capris, but then i realized that they definitely did not resemble the capris. Anyway, compare them on my girl to them on Keri's Bea:
Either my girl is abnormally long-legged, or the jeans I got were abnormally short.
They look OK with high tops, as shown above, but I am not going to pair them with any low-top shoes.
I just wanted to add that there really are two versions of these. I have two pairs--both bought around 2004-ish--and they both close with a snap and only have velcro on the fly. They are also made of a "rough" denim. However, when I hosted Jordyn's Emma (#24), I was surprised when I felt the texture of her AGP jeans--very smooth like the Ready for Fun or the Sparkly Tunic jeans.
Both versions are very nice, though, and definitely worth buying. BTW, I have found that they fit PM dolls - these jeans are a staple of my PM AGT's wardrobe!
I picked up the first version of these from ebay and wanted to add a photo of the difference in the waistband, in case it helps someone. Also, I already had the logo jeans so there is a comparison photo:
