MEK Denim - Premium? Opinions?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
MEK denim. Opinions? Is it considered premium denim? The brand sent me a pair to check out after a not-so-flattering blog was posted about them by Denim_Addict (well Jamie Lynn Spears was wearing them, what do you expect?!) but later Jessie posted a nicer blog about the MEK jeans Katherine Heigl wore. I don't know much about the brand but our mall just got a Metropark store in it which carries True Religion, Rock & Republic, William Rast, etc. and also had MEK. Is this becoming a new popular designer brand, or what do you think about it? I have to admit, on the pair they sent me, the wash was nice and the fit is decent. I'm just not sure about the pockets. Thoughts?

Nah...I wouldn't consider it premium as it is mass produced and sold at stores like Metropark and the Buckle. Not to mention a lot of their washes and stylings are rip offs of True Religion and Antik. My gf has a pair or two, but for the prices they charge, I'd much rather invest in a pair TR, Diesel, Citizens, etc. for my girl.

They sent you a free pair of denim, so rest assured it's going to be premium according to your blog from here on out.

Those look like knockoffs incorporating antik stitching tr pockets and god knows what else. So I guess, no, I wouldn't consider it premium.

When I see MEK I think methyl ethyl ketone!

That is SO not the case. Many brands want to send us their jeans to review but that doesn't mean they make the cut necessarily. I could name names but I won't. We just don't blog about the ones that are bad.

P.S. Is Metropark a big chain? I had never heard of it until it popped up in our mall.

Each MetroPark is the official AF regional headquarters

This brand is sold at the Buckle, so I will always associate it with Silver jeans, Lucky brand, and the like.

Ahh. See I never go into Buckle for that reason - its all Lucky brand, etc. so I wouldn't have known that.

lol, same here!

And Metropark also carries TR and R&R - I think most of TR's washes/pockets look tacky, and R&R works best on women, not men.
