What’s in a name? My grandpa’s name was James as is my dad’s and my brother’s name and I married a James who thankfully goes by his middle name which is not James. So, it was no surprise that I was destined to love James Jeans, however not necessarliy for the name which is familiar, but for the amazing fit.
I finally went through my closet and tried on every pair of jeans I own and realized that only 4 out of 20 pairs fit me correctly and it was time I get serious about adding a new pair of jeans to my closet that actually fit perfectly and felt comfortable. Instead of getting online and buying a trendy pair endorsed by the latest celebrity who more than likely does not have the same body shape as my own, I headed to a local store with a deep selection and set about trying on pair after pair until I found “the one.” In my case, “the one” happened to be a pair of mid-rise (although they call them high rise) boot cut dark denim jeans by James Jeans.
They sit up a bit higher, but are below the belly button and fit around the waist without gaping. The illusion inducing angled back pockets and the fit of the denim lift the tush and generally make it look amazing. The fading and washes on all the jeans are strategically done to make your legs appear leaner and longer. Overall, the jeans give a long, lean and elegant silhouette that fits perfectly while still being very comfortable. James Jeans are made from super, premium denim and hold their shape. So, what’s in a name? apparently the name James will never steer me wrong. Available at www.jamesjeans.us, www.couturecandy.com and www.revolveclothing.com.
