This weeks review is on a different pair of jeans, INDI Custom Denim jeans. I made these jeans on their website a few weeks ago and it was a really fun process.
First you start out by choosing the type of fit you would like for your jeans which then takes you to the builder page where you get to select everything else. There are 5 different medium to dark washes to choose from and 2 different fabric weights. Then you get to select the colour of the stitching you want, the rise, zipper or button fly, what sort of leg opening you would prefer, the hem stitching size and whether or not you want a coin pocket and then you go on to select what sort of pockets you would like and if you want any embroidery on the back pockets. You then finally go on to the measurements section where you type your height, weight, inseam, size etc and it will calculate your perfect fit. The jeans then go on to be made to your specifics at the factory.
I think it’s a really cool process and worth the time to put all of those details in. I normally have the issue of having the jeans too tight in the waist and loose in the thighs but these have the perfect ratio for the thighs and the waist. I selected the super low rise which is a pretty standard low rise of around about 7″ and I selected skinny which turns out to be a regular skinny of a 12″ opening. The inseam also fits me perfectly. I do quite like the idea of making custom jeans as you can get the fit perfect for yourself, I just wish you had the option to design the pockets exactly how you want them, including measurements, shape and positioning. The only point I can make about these is that the pockets are just slightly off from the position I normally like them and I find the shape of them to be a bit too long and narrow for me, but that’s just my personal preference as I am extremely fussy when it comes to jeans and getting a perfect fit. These pockets are a pretty standard pocket so it seems like they would suit most people.
I’m pretty sure I selected the medium indigo with distressing wash and it turned out to be quite pretty in real life, it’s got some depth to it and subtle whiskering. It is light weight fabric so it’s quite comfortable as well. I definitely think this would be something you should try if you can’t find jeans to fit you correctly, I know a lot of you get gaping in the waist or the thighs are just way too tight in regular premium jeans or there is not enough room in the butt etc. We all have different body shapes and that’s what I like most about INDI Custom Denim, they give you the chance to create a jean just for you. One that will fit you how you want them to fit so you don’t have to put up with ill fitting jeans. You can start creating your own jeans here.

Here is the brand new Fall 2011 Look Book for men and women from Denim of Virtue. They have lots of new styles and washes to choose from and I love the styling of this Look Book. Are any of you readers a fan of the brand?
Meagan Good posed for the paparazzi as she was on a night out in Hollywood in Los Angeles, California a few days ago. Meagan was wearing a pair of jeans that I am not that familiar with, Machine Jeans. She chose a heavily distressed skinny pair with combat boots and a leather jacket.
Their website says coming soon so I am wondering if we will be seeing more celebs in them, in this pair in particular. I’m sure they have been going for a while but it looks like Machine Jeans are doing a relaunch right now. What do you think of them? I quite like the wash and the distressing.

Reese Witherspoon is just days away from her wedding day and couldn’t stop smiling as she left lunch with a friend at Comme in Los Angeles, California. Reese was then spotted doing some shopping for clothes. I’m really intrigued to know what sort of wedding dress Reese is going to wear!
She was wearing a pair of J Brand skinny jeans, tan sandals, a white tee and a cream cardigan with sunglasses for the day. Reese really paired everything well, he bag matches her sandals and her sunglasses. I like it, it’s casual but it looks good. You can buy J Brand jeans at Singer22.com.
