You saw the picture of these on the model before. And you heard how much I was swooning about them without even having them in my grubby little hands.
Well, they’re here now. And I was so right to swoon.
Retail: $242 at Neiman Marcus.
Price: $72.50 (Courtesy of eLuxury going out of business and only having one pair left… my size!)
So, let’s go with color first. They’re a much more vibrant, more… attractive blue than most of the standard denim options out there on the market today, and that’s what caught my attention. In real life, they don’t disappoint, either. They still go well with virtually anything (not blues, of course) and don’t have any distressing… which they don’t need anyways.
As for fit, it’s as if they were tailored for me. They’re a snug 26 (not Paige snug, more like J Brand snug) on me, and have a fit and weight similar to most J Brand skinny jeans. They are also a great midrise (the rise on the 26 measures 8″, in case you’re concerned), so I don’t have LTS (long torso syndrome).
There’s a simplicity to these jeans that is just intriguing, and allows the focus to be on how they fit you… and how great you look in the vibrant blue. I don’t need a lot of fancy shit on my jeans. I just want them to make me look good.
These do that. I highly recommend them.
