not all jeans are created equal: gap.Wednesday, March 06, 2013
The Verdict: Gap 1969 Legging Skimmer Jean
Inseam (25"): Too long by a few inches, even with pumps (it is either an inaccurate inseam or I'm a gremlin)
Stretch: Not enough for a legging-- this is the factor that did them in for me
Material: Light weight
Sizing Accuracy: Very accurate
Worth a buy if: you're into skinny jeans that have little elastic/stretch in them
I love a jean that hugs all the right places, and this pair just didn't cut it, despite the fact that it is a "legging jean." Both colors were very pretty, though--San Clemente was a true bluejean (very 1970s) & Surfside Blue was a periwinkle with purple undertones, which would be gorgeous for spring. I would have gladly overlooked the fact that they were a few inches too long and lived in them if they were a bit more stretchy (particularly in the butt/thigh area) and didn't make me look I had a saggy behind.
And so the quest continues!
Where is your favorite pair of skinny jeans from? Or where do you think I should venture to next? Let me know in a comment!
