Paige is my denim brand of choice. I find them to make some of the comfiest jeans on the premium denim market, and love their jeans are mid-rise by default. "Behind cleavage" (hint hint, nudge nudge) is horrifying, and its never an issue with these jeans.
The pockets on the Verdugo's is also higher up on the bum than the Roxanne from 7 for All Mankind. There are opposing viewpoints on how pocket placement most flatters the bum, but I find that a lower pocket gives the appearance of a flatter butt, so for me, these Verdugo's do more for the behind.
The only drawback is that the spandex and cotton blend of these jeans is a little thin, so it's not going to do much in regards to "sucking you in", and if you don't have an inner thigh gap, the fabric there will start to thin down within 10-15 wears. This is only a minor drawback though.
All in all, the construction of these jeans is fantastic, and I find that they are well worth the investment!
