I am doing 2 reviews this week and the first one is on the J Brand 910 Skinny Jeans in Hightide wash. I got these from Gilt Groupe a little while ago and I love them! I’ve always been a fan of how pretty the wash is since I saw them on Kristin Cavallari a while back. I haven’t yet reviewed a classic J Brand fit so I thought it was about time I did.
The 910 skinny cut from J Brand is my favourite cut they do. I prefer it to the 912 as the 912 is not skinny enough for me and the inseam is much too long. With the 910 fit the inseam is perfect, I think it runs at around 30 so it would be great for the ankle peg look if you are taller or if you are not too tall like myself then they look just like skinny jeans. The rise is also perfect, I would say it is around 7 inches and they are extremely skinny all over. The one thing I love most about J Brand is how fitted they are in the legs. I normally find it difficult to get a good fitting pair of jeans in the waist and in the legs at the same time as my legs are quite small, but these fit wonderfully all over.
The back pocket placement is also another favourite of mine when it comes to J Brand jeans. They really take care in positioning the pockets in exactly the right place to uplift your bum and make it look really nice. They are not too spaced apart which gives the illusion of a wide butt and they are not too close together either, the position is just how it should be and that’s always something I look for in a jean. I’m never a fan of them if they don’t fit right in the rear area, haha. I also love the fact that J Brand’s pockets are completely plain, it makes the jeans more focused on the fit and wash rather than the pockets so they are suitable for anybody really.
The wash is absolutely the best thing about these jeans though! It’s an amazing deep blue with whiskering in the lap area which is in a great position to look authentic and there are crinkles down the thighs and honeycombing on the backs of the knees. Normally I can be really annoyed with these kind of details because a lot of the time they can look cheaply done and not in the right position for me as my legs are normally not long enough and the honeycombs fit somewhere on my calves, but with these Hightide’s, they fit perfectly on the backs of my knees which makes them look authentic. The wash did feel a bit scratchy at first which I thought was strange since it doesn’t have polyester in it but I think it was just because they were so new, now I have worn them a lot they feel just fine.
I would definitely recommend the 910 fit over any of the skinny jeans J Brand has to offer. If you are like myself and love super skinny jeans but have smaller legs then these will be perfect for you! The 910 cut comes in many washes as well! Buy these jeans at J Brand for $198.

Country star and famous dad to Miley, Billy Ray Cyrus, posed for photos as he attended the 2010 CMA Awards at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. I recently heard that Billy Ray and Tish have filed for divorce so I wish their family and Miley the best of luck through these tough times.
Billy Ray was wearing a pair of Hudson jeans. He chose the boot cut jeans in Black which he paired with a shirt and a black blazer. The sunglasses give him the old George Michael look here! I think he looks great though, very stylish for the CMA’s. I can see he certainly got his ‘mullet back’ as well!
Elle Macpherson was spotted back in the beginning of October after dropping her children off at school in London, England. I saw these photos when they first came around and I wasn’t sure about the brand. I have found out though that they are MET Jeans, the Eco Pelle Becky jeans from the Autumn/Winter 2010 collection. They are a PU leather material and they look so hot!
The jeans feature reinforced knee stitching detail and a zip fastening with 2 front pockets. They can be purchased in the UK in places like Harrods and other boutiques for £155. Met Jeans is the story of two diverse cultures meeting. Founded 10 years ago, with the first 5 years spent carrying out research and developing new techniques. I think I am growing to like this brand!
