Have you tried on a pair of coated jeans yet? Let’s just say, not all coated denim are made equal. Recently, Denim Therapy had the chance to review a pair of DL1961 Emma jeans in Wick. These are black coated denim leggings made with X-Fit 4-way stretch jeans, so you don’t have to suffer to look great. I am wearing the Emma in a size 26 with a 32″ inseam. Although I’m not very tall, these jeans fit me perfectly from hip to ankle. Even as these are low-rise jeans (about 8 1/2″ rise), I was impressed with its contoured waistband, which prevented puckering at the back. Equally impressive was how the waistband was cut near the front: slightly higher on the sides so there was no pinching at the hip bones. One thing to note: the non-rubbery coating is only on the outside, so the interior is soft.
If you’re in the market for a great pair of sexy all-purpose black jeans, then you better try the Emma in Wick. You can get the leather jeans look without the heaviness. And, what the pictures don’t tell you online is that there’s a slight sheen and a bit of sparkle lightly scattered throughout the jeans; so, these jeans look great in the sunlight as well as at night. The DL1961 Emma denim leggings in Wick ($168) is available at DL1961 online.
