Never has there been a pair of jeans more perfectly suited to Seattle than these plaid beauties from DEVON. The line probably seems familiar – we featured the DEVON Spring 2011 Lookbook earlier this year. I was so excited to get these jeans because they’re so extremely unique (I own a LOT of jeans, and these are the only plaid ones) and because they fit so well into Seattle, the plaid and flannel capital of the world.
Style: Theta Plaid Straight 6-Pocket Jean
A couple of details about the DEVON Skinny:
- These jeans are expensive, but for a good reason – all of these details are unique and don’t come cheap. From the plaid fade-through under a black overdye, the snap fly and the fact that they’re US designed and made, you’re paying for quality.
- My biggest concern with these was finding something to wear that didn’t overpower the pants… and weren’t black. My recommendations are to go with the colors in the plaid; for me, they were blue, red and green.
- While the website says that these were 28″, mine are 30″. Still shorter than most styles (and work for most girls thanks to the cut) and it looks good with boots and heels.
- I can say that these jeans have garnered me more compliments than any pair I’ve received recently (on par with my Mike Lanes jeans). People liked them a lot!
Just as a comment/warning: these jeans are NOT for women who like a higher rise jean. It took a while for me to get used to the lower cut but, because the fit was so good, it ended up not being an issue. But if you can’t do 7.5″ or lower rises, you won’t want to wear this specific style.
The fabric is fantastic – the jeans are soft, comfortable and have the right amount of stretch – and the details are immaculate, down to the belt loop stitching matching up with the pocket stitch. These are inspired and inspiring; the kind of jeans I love to try out.
