Denim Review: Rock & Republic Harlan in Hacker Blue
My second review this week is on the Rock & Republic Harlan moto jeans in Hacker Blue. I got these last week from Rock & Republic after seeing them on the website and falling in love! They are so unique and very different to the other moto jeans on the market. They have silver foil specks all over them which adds to that punky/rockish look of the jeans, I love that! The pockets are completely plain (as they should be when the jean is this detailed) apart from zippers on the top of them. They have that classic Rock & Republic fit as well, I find them really flattering on the butt and very well fitting down the legs.
I thought maybe the moto jeans would feel very hard and stiff around the knee but this is not true with these jeans, they are very comfy and they feel like you are wearing just a normal pair of jeans. My only issue with these is they are a very rough denim, I think that’s because of the foil on them, it makes the denim quite hard and not very soft. I’m normally a big fan of soft denim, I prefer the comfort of it. Also I would prefer if they came in different leg lengths as the standard 35″ inseam is a huge hassle to most of us haha but I know that’s how R&R make their jeans. I have to tuck the rest of the leg length underneath until I can hem them but I hate hemming on jeans that are so well detailed because you lose a lot of the prettiness.
These jeans really are the best moto jeans I have ever tried though, I honestly love them. The way they fit is really nice and the pockets are the perfect size and shape, the detailing with the foil is really pretty, it’s subtle in some lights but in others it really stands out. The wash underneath the foil flecks is also a very beautiful blue, it fades from light to darker all around the jeans. They run true to size for me as well, I took a 27 and I am a 27 in R&R. Even though the price tag is pretty high at $385 they are definitely worth the buy if you love the moto jeans trend and love Rock & Republic jeans or the brand itself.
I definitely recommend these jeans to those of you loving this trend! They are gorgeous! Although the denim is rough they are very flattering and slimming down the legs unlike most moto jeans that make your legs look short and chunky. The silver foil splatters make the jeans really unique and pretty. I think they are great jeans from the brand! Buy these jeans here at Rock & Republic.
