I’ve been resisting for reasons I can’t explain. Possibly because they were everywhere all the time, at the same time as babies wearing diapers with a denim motif on their butts, and I was all, Can’t jeans just be jeans anymore? Oy.
Anyway, I was wrong. I love them now.
I was in the market for some inexpensive jeans, and stopped into Garage, who were having a sale, as luck would have it. Buy one pair of jeans, and get the second pair for 50% off. I needed regular blue jeans anyway, so I figured now was as good a time as any to try some – especially for half price.
I love the way they fit – they have lots of stretch to them. And I don’t mind the extra length on them (which is ALWAYS the case when you’re a shortie like me) since it’s fall, and they look perfectly fine without hemming.
The downside? After two washes, they’re already fading a bit, but I’ve found this to be the case with black jeans in general. It’s happened with pants I’ve paid more than twice the amount for. (I’m looking at YOU, Gap!) So.
The other thing is, the front pockets are sewn shut. BOO! HISS!! I like my front pockets to be useful, please… but at least the back pockets can hold whatever I need them to. (Like my hands.)
Good silhouette. Snaky with the ankle boots. Oh, yeah.
