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.

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 Williamsburg Garment Company’s High-Waisted Skinny Jeans


Ladies and gents, MC has a new favorite pair of jeans.  The latest offerings from Williamsburg Garment Company—remember when Renee reviewed their skinny jeans as a day-to-night staple?—include a medium-wash stretch denim high-waisted skinny for women. These jeans get the high score for holding flawless shape a full day of flea market prowling and a full night of dancing. They also possess the eternally sought-after slimming effect and cool details for denim-geeks to gawk at.

skinny jeans review williamsburg garment company

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

It was “Yesssss. Come to mama.” I also noticed the well proportioned back pockets (pocket size can really wreak havoc on a gal’s attempts to appear slimmer) and the cool side pocket stitching detail when I looked in the mirror. I love subtle design points that set a pair of jeans apart.

Where/when would you wear these?

I wore them to the flea market and strolling around Brooklyn, to brunch, to an insane all night dance party… no stretch or sag in the fabric. They looked and felt great. I’d wear these anywhere. I expect to get a lot of miles out of them this spring.

How’s the fit?

Love the high-rise, love the tight fit around the hips/behind, and knees. They have enough stretch for comfort but they still feel like denim, which is rare with women’s jeans. Too often it’s a free-for-all spandex blend jegging party. It’s hard to find the right balance. Aside from the feel of the fit, I was told they look great but friends and strangers while wearing them, so that probably counts for something.

Make Your Butt Look Better! A New Revolution In Women’s Jeans


de Chemin Jeans is new on the scene, but their philosophy stems from a problem women have had since the beginning of skin-tight garments: making their butts look better. Whether you’re aiming for more lift, smaller size, or any other magic transformation, this brand says they have what it takes.

“Born from the son of ’70s label Chemin de Fer, the collection is engineered to enhance the appearance of your bottom. Each pair is constructed employing more than twelve pattern pieces of engineered stretch fabrication. On the back of the jeans, there are strategically placed reverse yokes. The waistband is sculpted to frame your shape, and the detailing on the hips is inspired by aeyodynamic design to lengthen the legs.”

We’re intrigued further by their vintage style lines and high-waisted options… so intrigued that we’re going to try on a pair next week and let you know what we think.
