Hayley’s Paige Premium Denim Review

by Hayley on November 18, 2010

One of my newest pairs of jeans is the Paige Premium Denim Skyline Drive in Storm. This cut is a classic rise ankle peg. Since I’m short, these jeans don’t taper around my ankles, so they’re more like a straight cut where it stops at my ankles. I definitely have to get these hemmed.

Rise: 7.5″
Inseam: 34″
Leg opening circumference: 13″

Paige generally runs smaller than most denim brands, and that holds true for this pair too. These jeans I took in my true size, and it fits very snugly, I probably could’ve gone up a size but this was the only size left. They are made of 98% cotton and 2% spandex. I would say that while they aren’t the most comfortable pair I own, they definitely flatter my butt. I like the pockets too; they are simple and in the right place on the backside. In the right back pocket, there is a hidden pocket for your ID/credit card. I think it’s a detail that’s common among Paige’s skinny cuts.

The wash, Storm, is a clean dark grey/faded black color. The fading down the thighs and on the butt are really subtle and slimming.  Other than the wash being lint-attracting, I have no complaints, and I really like it. I own mostly blue jeans, so this pair adds variety to my collection. There are creases at the hips, which I find a bit unnecessary but they are done well and don’t detract from the jeans.

You can find a similar pair of Paige Skyline jeans here. This is my second pair of Paige Premium Denim, and I think if I do ever get another pair, I’d rather get a pair that is already a good inseam for me, which is around 30″ or so.

Do you own any Paige Premium Denim? What do you think about them?

I’m usually a 31 or 32 and I find Paige at the end of the range to be more generous. When I ordered my latest pair from Gilt, I got a 31. That might be different with the skinnies – all the Paiges I have are straight or bootcut or flares. I love them for how they fit my butt and flatter my never been flat tummy, heh. (The Nordstrom Rack near me has faaaaaaaaaaantastic deals on Paige, btw, as good or better than any I’ve seen in the online stores.) And I have to get all of them hemmed, sigh. Oh, except the one time I managed to get already altered and never picked up ones from Nordstrom Rack. :)

I can never really find good deals at Nordstrom Rack! Lucky. I’m glad SOMEONE can :)
