Paige Premium Jeans
As it is Thanksgiving weekend, I wanted to do a look that was comfortable and on the athleisure side of dressing. We all will most likely still be dealing with the food comas of the holiday and this is a look that is still cool for the guys for whether you finally hit that hike or just want to be about town.
I chose the new Paige Jackson Joggers in Black Gravel to base the look around. They are one of my favorite pants that I own as they have the look of sweatpants, but the smartness of a chino. Not to mention that they have some edge to them with the zippers.
To bring in the athleisure, I paired them with simple staples that many guys would have similar pieces to in their closets. I went for a James Perse t shirt and sweater by Visvim, as they help bring in the cozy vibe. Then to bring in the sports sense, a pair of the Adidas Ultra Boosts and my favorite hat by Gents Co.. This is a look that I can see many guys wearing. How many of you are planning to keep it comfy this weekend?
My next review is on a pair of jeans that I have been looking forward to doing since the cut first came out, the Paige Croft Skinny in Howell. As you all may know, I am such a fan of the cut as they are the brands first foray into super skinny for men. They are a pair that I have just been waiting for any brand to come out with and I am happy it was by Paige as they created it in their amazing TRANSCEND fabric.
For the sizing, I based these on the Lennox cut and went with the smallest size which is a 28. The Lennox was a bit bigger on me all around in the same size and I was expecting these to be the same. They were not and fitted all around, which only adds to their appeal even more. They don’t slip down, which is great, and they retain their shape really well.
Though I do prefer most women’s style over men’s, one thing I was happy about with these is the higher rise. Other than the Paige Verdugos and a few other styles from different brands, many women’s styles sit lower. This is a reasonable aesthetic choice, but I am just happy that there is a men’s style that I can appreciate like my other pairs because of this. With the higher rise, it allows more coverage and also minimal to no slipping down the waist. This just made them all the more better.
The cut of the jeans is just as they say, which is super slim down the whole leg. Being that they are men’s jeans, I expected that they’d be on the longer side. They have a 33″ inseam which is pretty long on me, but I wear them with a cuff and that solves the issue. But ideally, they’d be perfect with a 30″ inseam for me.
The Howell wash is part of Paige’s TRANSCEND line. So you already know how comfortable they are going to be. Even with how soft they are, they don’t lose their shape and there is a bit of stiffness to them that I quite like.
The color of them is a classic dark blue wash on the outer shell, but at the lining they have a black tone to them. This detail is interesting and I am interested in seeing how they would look with wear or distressing to see the subtle contrast of the darker threads peeking through.
This is just a personal nitpicking issue, but one thing I am not the biggest fan of with the wash is the stitching. They have a yellow stitching that I find a bit stark against the dark blue/black wash of the denim. It’s something that I found, for me, just takes away from the blue. This is just something I have a problem with, but I’m sure you readers won’t have this much of a concern about it like me.
Overall, they are a great pair of jeans to own if you are a guy that has been looking for a pair that is super skinny, but doesn’t want to buy a pair of women’s jeans. The cut is amazing and comfort is lovely. Once you get a pair, you can see why we have started to see more and more celeb sightings of men in them lately. I cannot wait to see where they take this style over the seasons. You can click here to purchase these jeans from the Paige website.

I love that she wore jeans for these shots, since it is for a street style shoot and has a more casual vibe. Olivia does wear quite a lot of different jeans but I think this pair she chose, suits her style really well, with the classic darker wash that has a bit of distressing to add an edge.

I like that the bib on these overalls flares in slightly and how it is slimming on the waist. Kendall’s crop top really shows that off even more and is super flattering on her. You can shop for Paige jeans online from Shopbop.com.
