Italian jeans just suit my soul so wonderfully… especially ones as lovely as these Meltin’ Pot jeans. The Mika style fits my preferred denim aesthetic perfectly: slim, with a clean medium wash and a comfortable fit.
And, let’s be honest… a little stretch in your denim never hurts!
This Italian-based line has been around for quite some time, but hasn’t really gotten the stateside recognition I believe it deserves. After all, the jeans are flattering, well-made and affordably priced (at around $130 US for the Mika!)… what’s not to love?
I will admit, they’re hard to find in the states. It’s kind of disappointing (though Yoox has been known to carry a decent selection), but if you can get your hands on a pair, I’d highly recommend it. I’m a little put off by the metallic decor on the back pocket and label, but I wear tunics and oversized tees almost exclusively… it’s an easy fix.
I’m wearing the 26/32 (that’s 26 waist, 32″ inseam), and it fits quite True to Size. Those of you who are in between sizes like me, I’d recommend going for the larger size.
With a front rise at my favorite length (8″), I’m happy and quite comfortable in these, and I know you will be too.
WIN a pair of Meltin’ Pot Mika Skinnies!
