Denim Review: Jen7 Slim Straight Skinny Jeans


Pop quiz: did you get your perfect pair of black skinny jeans for fall yet? If not, check out one pair we’re really fond of right now. MC reviewed a pair of Jen7 skinny jeans in black to see how they held up during a busy day in NYC, and they passed the test. If you haven’t heard about the new bran Jen7 Jeans yet, you will soon. It’s a  new line designed “by women, for women”, via 7 for All Mankind. Get the details on this pair, below.

jen7-denim-review-01

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

My first thought was how versatile they are, being a pair of black skinny jeans and all. I loved how they fit with my favorite fall boots, and after pairing them with a ton of tops in my wardrobe, I feel confident I’ll be getting some good mileage out of them.

Where/when would you wear these?

These are the ideal wear-to-work jeans, because they’re both comfortable and sleek looking. You can dress them down for a chill day, add some killer heels for a night out, or pair them with a blazer for the office. Pieces that fit into my wardrobe need to pull their weight and function in more than one situation, and these jeans definitely pass the test.

How’s the fit?

Awesome! They didn’t stretch out or lose shape after a full day of wearing them on errand runs and meetings. I love how they look and feel, from waistband to ankle. One of the objectives of this line is to make women feel amazing in their jeans, and I think they’re on to something.

Denim Review: American Eagle Sky High Jegging


Question: What’s cooler than a pair of light wash, flawlessly distressed jeans that fit like a glove and go with everything in your fall wardrobe? Answer? Nothing. MC recently received a pair of American Eagle Outfitters Sky High Jeggings from the AE vintage collection, and… well, she hasn’t taken them off ever since. These jeans are AE’s newest fit (and their highest rise, which we love), designed to look like a pair of well-worn vintage jeans, with all the comfort of a denim legging.

denim review american eagle

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

“Obsessed.”

Where/when would you wear these?

For me, these are the ultimate fall jeans. The sitting-in-coffee-shops, lattes-and-laptops, cozy-on-a-cool day jeans. I’ll be wearing them with my favorite oversize sweaters as often as with my tailored fall jackets. There’s enough distressed action happening above the knee for them to look awesome with knee-high boots, too.

And by the way, they come in 6 washes, so go ahead and try not to find a pair you can’t live without.

How’s the fit?

The high rise is exactly where I want it, and the ankles taper in perfectly. One pet peeve of mine is having too much fabric at the hem (which a bit of Denim Therapy’s hemming and tailoring can take care of), but I love when I try on a pair of jeans and this issue is pre-solved for me.

Denim Review: Love Premium Denim’s Kylie Jean


Despite our in-the-moment excitement over novelty washes and fun styles, we’re all about versatility and longevity in our denim selection. So when LOVE Premium Denim approached us with the notion that they supply “the only jean you’ll ever need”, we were intrigued. Further, they donate a portion of proceeds to the CURE Foundation for breast cancer awareness. Styles are named after breast cancer survivors. How’s that for some love?

Our blog editor, Michelle Christina, reviewed her LOVE Premium Denim Lower Rise Kylie jeans below. Check out her thoughts, and be sure to visit their site for more info on the brand.

denim-review-love-jeans-kylie-01

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

They slid on like butter! The fabric is extremely soft. I thought, “I have been dreading the moment where the weather in NYC is cool enough for jeans… but these soften the blow.”

Where/when would you wear these?

I see these being a daytime errand, weekend relaxation, quick fix to an outfit dilemma kind of jean. They’re super comfortable so I will probably fall asleep in them during late night Netflix sessions this fall, but they’re also cute enough to wear with a luxe knit top and some statement jewelry for a dinner date.

How’s the fit?

I’m all about medium-to-high rise, so these are perfect for me. They’re a flattering jean overall. The cotton-lycra blend mean some control action, which most women are interested in. I’ll probably tailor the hems so they’re more flattering around my ankles (I’m 5’7″). After a full day of wear, there wasn’t any noticeable stretching or sagging in the fabric. Overall? I love them.

Do Spanx Jeans Make You Look Thinner… For Real?


According to StyleCaster’s Leah Bourne, the answer is a resounding “Yes”. Inspired by Sarah Blakely, founder of Spanx, and her mission to create a pair of jeans that fit like leggings and suck in excess weight in all the right places, Bourne got a pair for herself to see if they walked the walk. She found that while they definitely lived up to their task of being shape wear, they didn’t feel too tight or “like a girdle”. Even after a full day’s wear, they had the stamp of approval.

How do they work? According to Blakely, who spoke to StyleCaster, “There’s a magic tummy panel sewn right into The Slim-X jean and a uniquely designed shaping waistband in The Signature style. We also created slimming patterns for both cuts—the skinny and straight, so that thighs appear thinner and legs longer.”

So the verdict? Spanx jeans make you look thinner, and they don’t wear out after a day of walking around. We’ll be trying a pair for ourselves to see if this theory holds up for us as well. See the full story and review here.

MC Reviews Zip Ankle Mid-Rise D-ID Jeans


MC recently reviewed a pair of zip ankle mid-rise jeans by D-ID, or Denim Identity. The jeans are medium wash premium denim with a medium rise and double button detail. Denim afficionado Jimmy Taverniti says the collection is inspired by ”the timeless freedom of the American West and the iconic poetry of the cinema.” So how do they stack up? Read on to find out.

d-id-jeans-review02

d-id-jeans-review01

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

I loved the zip ankle! I want my jeans to be really fitted at the ankle so I can wear them inside boots, but also because it creates a more flattering silhouette for me.

Where/when would you wear these?

I’ve been wearing them non-stop. These are solid every day jeans that are easy to style with a tank and blazer or one of my many oversize sweaters.

How’s the fit?

See above! Add to the awesome zip detail, a high rise waist, and I’ve got a brand new go-to pair of jeans. They have the right amount of stretch, without stretching out as you wear them during the day.

MC Reviews Fabrizio Gianni Mint Green Jeans


Our blog editor MC reviewed a pair of Fabrizio Gianni super stretch jeans in slim fit tapered style with a bright spring hue. Mint green jeans are always welcome in our closets, and these are no exception. Aside from a fun pair of spring jeans, they sent a branded, colorful iPhone case and tote bag! We love goodies! Check out her specific thoughts on the fit and feel below, and grab a pair for yourself here—they’ll have 10 available colors total by the time summer rolls around.

mint-green-jeans-mc-review-2

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

This color flawlessly blends the minty freshness of winter with the pastel pretty-ness of spring. Yes, I’m a Libra. That’s what I was thinking.

Where/when would you wear these?

While these are pretty specific in hue to be every-day jeans, I would definitely wear them when I wanted something stylish and comfy at the same time. Springtime strolls seem the perfect opportunity. The color makes them great to pair with other bright colors and neutral hues.

How’s the fit?

They’re comfortable and feel good on. They’re more cotton than “denim”, and they do have stretch, so I could probably wear these all whole day without feeling any of that jean friction.

I do prefer a much more fitted ankle, so I might have them taken in, but the would fit great if I wanted to wear them over my shoes instead of tucked into boots. And I’m not gonna lie, I think my butt looks pretty good in them. Overall, thumbs up.

Eric Reviews Life After Denim’s Churchill Shirt In Bluebird


So, Life After Denim is a brand that, by all accounts, we should despise- purely for their name. But, they were nice enough to send me one of their Churchill shirts. Olive branch accepted.

With quality cotton and heather speckle cloth, it’s hard to hold their name against them for very long. It’s one of the most comfortable shirts I’ve ever worn and it’s great for all seasons, even though it’s in their Fall line. You can beat the heat and roll the sleeves, or keep them extended when the temp drops. Given the not-so-hellish summer temperatures and the surprisingly warm beginning to Fall, I’ve enjoyed both sleeve options, with gusto.

The Bluebird color is a great pairing with any skinny pair of black or white denim jeans. Heck, I wore the shirt to a beach wedding a few weeks ago, tucked into a white pair of slacks. Everybody was like “Yo, where did you get that shirt?!? It’s perfect!”

Simply put, this shirt is a delight. Grab one here.

Raffael Reviews Denim & Leather’s Straight Leg Coated Jeans


Andrew Marc has worked hard to establish a reputation as an iconic American brand since its inception in 1982. In spring 2013 the company launched Denim &  Leather: a brand defined by an absolute love of Americana and the rebellious culture of the 40′s 50′s and 60′s. This brand captures the authentic spirit of these times with a contemporary and functional approach. It is a premium denim label that designs products for a young market: one that exudes rock and adventure.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of Crinkle Night Wash straight leg jeans, so after hanging out with them for the past 3 weeks I’ll tell you what I think of them…

-

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

“Wow. Badass.” It doesn’t get much more rock’n'roll than black coated denim.

Where/when would you wear these?

I’m totally wearing these bad boys for my DJ gigs regularly. Good jeans are one way to own the night.

How’s the fit?

Perfect straight leg fit with room to move—and jump, as you can see below. I admire the strong craftsmanship. They’re sturdy, but they’re also comfortably. And most importantly, sexy.

MC Reviews True Religion White Denim Cut-Off Shorts


Cut-off shorts are the ultimate staple, and you can throw a summer twist on this classic style by wearing them in white. Recently our blog editor MC received a pair of True Religion high-rise Cadence cut-off shorts, and so began a new denim love affair. Find out what she loves about them below.

white-cut-off-shorts

white-cut-off-shorts-2

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

I immediately thought, “wearing these out tonight!”

Where/when would you wear these?

I’ve already worn them to the beach, to run errands around my neighborhood in Brooklyn, for a few nightlife expeditions… basically everywhere/anywhere. I love the resort style of white denim and pairing them with different tops: neon tanks, a chambray shirt, etc. The only downside to these is that they’re white, and that means you can’t get away with wearing them day after day as you would with a medium wash.

How’s the fit?

They fit like a glove, with next to no stretch despite wearing them on long train rides and while busting a move. I seriously love these shorts.

Raffael Reviews Denim of Virtue Eskimo Jeans


Denim of Virtue is a premium denim brand manufactured in LA. “We didn’t want to just throw ourselves back into the ‘premium denim’ market without delivering a product that was truly luxe and worthy of the name. That was part of our Virtue… giving our customer denim that feels so good on they won’t want to take it off, and really introducing looks that stand out in the marketplace,” says the brand’s designer, Elizabeth Bae. And make no mistake, she they’re living up to their manifesto.

mens-denim-review-eskimo-jeans

Sourcing the very best denim fabrics from around the globe, DoV developed new techology, “X-Fit”—a four-way stretch material that provides an unparalleled slimming effect. They looked to Italy’s Candiani denim mill for durability and France’s soft Tencel-based “Cool 12″ material for their relaxed fits (so comfortable it’s pretty much impossible to take off). Finally, for their coated denim styles, they imported specialty fabric from Spain that was treated with an uber-soft wash.

mens-denim-review-eskimo-jeans

mens-denim-review-eskimo-jeans

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

Comfort factor. I’m used to wearing raw denim. These are more like wearing a soft moccasin after years of wearing strong tough shoes.

Where/when would you wear these?

I’ve been wearing them to brunch, for walks along the waterfront in Williamsburg… they have the perfect look and feel amazing. I’ve dubbed them my “resort jeans”.

How’s the fit?

I really like the medium rise with a tapered slim fit. They have the perfect amount of stretch and are really comfortable. The contrast cuffs are another visual bonus.
