Paula’s Denim Review: NYDJ Sheri Skinny Coated Denim in Black

by Paula on November 12, 2012

One of the great things about being a writer on is getting the opportunity to try out new denim! Because, well, jeans are awesome.  It always makes my day when I am offered the chance to try not only a new pair of denim, but also in a line I have never tried before!

My most recent experience in denim is with a line I had yet to give a try – NYDJ.  I chose to try the Sheri Skinny Coated Denim in Black.  I always like to know a little bit about my denim before I get to actually try them on, so while I was waiting for them to arrive I did a little research.  NYDJ claimed some pretty exciting aspects about their fit concept:

Look, feel and buy one size smaller!

The reason why women rave about NYDJ? Our exclusive Lift Tuck Technology®, designed to make you look and feel a size smaller. A patented criss-cross panel helps flatten in the front, while lifting and smoothing in the back. It works so well, we recommend that you order a size down from what you normally wear. The rise hits just slightly above the natural waist to provide not only a slimmer silhouette, but also comfort without gapping at the waistband.

Ok, so let me just say a few things about these jeans:

First of all, the Coating in Black is really beautiful!  The clear coating gives them a little bit of shine and the coating aspect holds true to the “leather look”.  Plus, as a little bonus, they are tremendously soft & slick without the slight “rubbery” feel of many of the coated jeans.

As for fit – well, I would say they pretty much nailed it with their claims to look and feel slimmer as well!  The rise is, as stated just above the natural waist making them an on-trend high waist jean.  The fit through the hips and thighs is generous so  they fit snug without cutting off the circulation!  And lastly, the skinny cut is effective without binding the calves and with an opening that allows you to get them off without turning them inside out or doing what I like to call “the skinny tug and pull dance.” (don’t get me wrong, I love my C/E skinnys, but they require alot of effort when trying to peel them off!).

As for the claim to go one size down from your true size?  Well, I would have to jump on board with this concept as well.  I opted to go with my true size, but I could have easily gone down one more size for a more flawless fit!

One more little tidbit detail I love about these jeans…they come in two inseam lengths – regular and petite! Gotta love that!

As always, a  picture is worth a thousand words… and who really want a thousand words from me anyway.

And there you have it!

Thank you, Jennifer, for the opportunity to try NYDJ jeans and for the lightening fast delivery!!

What a cool find Paula, these jeans look awesome. I like the coated denim, the sheen definately makes it look like leather in your photos. Plus it’s slimming and I have not heard of any “slimming” jeans that come in black coated denim.
I really like your shoes Paula. Where did you get them from?
