Since the skinny cargo pant trend is in full swing, I am going to be reviewing a few of them within the coming weeks. I have already reviewed the J Brand Houlihan cargos and this next review is for the Frankie B. Maury skinny cargo pants in Army Worn.
These cargo pants are so comfy!! They are made from really soft cotton, tencel and lycra. They have a really smooth and stretchy feel to them, all while being really easy to move in and perfect for wearing if you want comfort. They have the classic Frankie B. low rise and the colour is a perfect shade of army green. The thing I love most about these cargo pants is the aesthetics of them, the pockets on the knees are really cute and the back pockets have buttons and zippers on them too. These pants don’t have any ankle zips but not all cargo pants need them, there is so much detail on these cargos that ankle zips are not needed.
They run pretty true to size for Frankie B. as I stayed with my normal size. I really love these cargo pants so much, they do stretch out quite a bit though so I may have wished I had sized down one size. I have worn them twice already and they have got a bit loose in the legs area. These are definitely in my top 3 skinny cargos right now! I would definitely recommend them if you are looking to jump on the skinny cargo pants bandwagon and you are wanting a pair with a lot of details on them, these pants have a lot of stitching detail on the legs as well as all of the pockets and zips. They are definitely a cute pair! You can see all of the photos in the gallery below. Buy these pants at Frankie B. for $174.

The new brand Henry Hall Jeans has released some new styles and they are really cute! I love the coloured tie-dye jeans! They are a soft and stretchy fabric with 98% cotton and 2% spandex. The black jeans which are shiny are 100% cotton with a special coating to give them that leather look.
I think the photos are really arty and I can’t wait to see more from the brand! The tie-dye photos were taken by David Larson and the black and white photos were taken by Thorsten Jankowski. They are great photographers and I love the images they have taken! I will let you all know as soon as Henry Hall Jeans are available to purchase! I love blogging about new brands I like!

Zac Efron, known for his love of denim on this blog, was seen arriving at JFK Airport in NYC last weekend. He was wearing a pair of straight leg Levi’s jeans with his Rayban’s, a shirt and brown shoes. This outfit is quite mix and matchy but it works for him, I quite like it being so different.
I’m always a big fan of Zac’s style, he’s actually my favourite male celeb to blog on DenimBlog because he’s always so well dressed and he wears so much denim. He has great fashion sense. I love that! He’s also been wearing a lot of Levi’s lately, looks like he is giving his Nudie’s and Diesel’s a rest for the time being!
7 For All Mankind used to make a lot of trouser jeans before the skinny jeans trend took a hold of the denim market. For this season, Holiday 2010, they are re releasing lots of trouser jeans in many washes and different cuts! They have brought some of their older best selling styles back like the Dojo.
This new line of trousers has been named by 7 For All Mankind ‘The Trouser Story’. It makes a fresh change to see some trouser style jeans on the market right now! 7 For All Mankind say their trousers create a polished, tailored, lean line – all while keeping the comfortable flattering fit that is synonymous to the brand.
If you click this blog post you can see all of the new artwork sketches of the trousers. There are 7 images in total and I think the drawings are gorgeous! They should make all of their images in art, I love it! Which style is your favourite? I think the Dojo is the cutest!
