Where are they made? Are they made right in your backyard by a top brand you trust? A small piece yes, but it sets the tone for everything else. This statement holds true in everything in the fashion world: The same goes for what jeans you wear.
You should be looking for clean seams that feel smooth against the skin. A snug, modern fit that hugs your waist without being too tight. Of course, you can always elect to go lean and mean if skinny jeans are your style. Do the jeans have character? Exceptional stitching holds it all together and is perhaps one of the most important things to keep an eye on. But also consider the denim darkness: What is the process to break them in and how fast does the color fade?
Consider it a small investment in your style. Not to mention, expensive on your pocketbook but justly so. Their alluring luxury appearance is achieved in the distinctive manufacturing process. That plus the attention to detail is incredibly high; small touches truly make a big difference.
It might be difficult to see from the photo above, but the standard-straight legs have a really nice light fade around the knees. The Larkee by Diesel has a traditional design with ample room for your legs and thighs to relax. To put this in perspective, these jeans are extremely comfortable and perfect for easy going, casual nights spend out on the town. Do note though, they can be a bit stiff for the first time, but a quick wash softens them up.
Exceptional quality sewing meets a simplistic approach with ultra-clean lines on the Barton Rigid. Regardless of what shoes are on your feet, or what the occasion may be, these jeans always manage to just look good. They pair great with a dress shirt and blazer, and have somewhere between a low to medium rise. My personal favorite, the dark worn wash. The process includes a light wash, and a leftover bold indigo color. Each is hand-sanded for that authentic feel and broken-in look.
Each has that worn in, comfortable look with fine, rugged stitching to match. All are left raw, until you request a wash. The fit offers more room than most, but still feels snug and just right. The button fly is both loved and hated, it really depends on what you like. But like all fashion trends, and things in this world, change is bound to happen. Their made by Lucky Brand which has been making vintage-inspired jeans Lucky Brand takes pride in their process by fraying, sanding, washing, and ripping their jeans for that true character and soul.
