Overall thoughts of J Brand Jeans?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I just heard of these jeans and based on their styles and cuts I really like them. The price is not bad either. How does their quality compare to other brands such as Diesel, Chip and Pepper, 7? Are the worth it?

I have one pair of J Brands and the quality is flawless on them.  I think they are at least as good at 7FAM.  Diesel (at least all the Diesel jeans I own) tend to have a thicker, sturdier denim so it's in a league of it's own.  I like that J Brand are no-frills.

Thanks. I understand some people may not like the looks but I just want to know how the quality of their denim is. I enjoy the look of their jeans on myself.

I think the quality is probably better than 7s, in my experience at least. J Brands are seriously all I own, the fit me really well and I've had a few different pairs for years that still are great after being worn on a near-daily basis.

I've sold some J Brands, and though they are very high quality and sell well, I find them way too plain for my taste (I tend to gravitate towards 7FAM from 05-07, though---the blingier, the better!)

The most comfortable jeans I own not to mention the great construction and washes they offer. Love em!

The fit is amazing, however the quality is terrible. I've owned a pair for about a year now and the crotch area ripped completely twice in different areas. The back pocket has holes from carrying my wallet. For a pair of jeans I paid $270 for, I expected more.

I've had that happen to some of my pairs Euro22. Me and two of my coworkers all had our J Brands tear in the crotch in the same week. They were my first pair, so I was really upset but it hasn't stopped me from buying them!

^Yes, now that you mention it, I've seen a lot of JBrands at resale shops with blown crotches (and I wondered why on earth the store would even take them if they're obviously not salvageable...a knee rip is one thing and you can make shorts out of those, but a blown crotch is another entirely)

I have two pair of J Brands denim, quality is ok but the comfort level is the biggest asset of this J brand.
You can also wear these jeans for casual times.

Well i also like Diesel jeans always, a truly ruff and tuff denim for all purpose.

j brand= awesome great fit, sometimes a bit too long, but the styling and effect is stunning

J Brand is definitely one of the best on the market. They seem very durable and their skinny jeans are incredibly curve hugging and smooth looking. The other big positives are the minimalist stitching and basic styling as well as perfect back pocket size, shape and positioning for a nice clean appearance. They make up the largest contingent among the jeans in my closet. Mostly 912 and 910 but also some discontinued 942,1812 and 1810 jeans. Some pairs I own 2 just because they look and fit so nice.

Really? How on earth would they even sell them. Holes/Rips in that area are so hard to repair that I doubt it'd even be worth it.

I know right? But then again, out here in the cornfields, people might be so desperate for a "brand name" on their butt that they might be okay with attempting to repair a blown crotch and/or repurpose them into some "vintage-y" looking item...still strikes me as odd, considering our Plato's jacked up their prices and my own items are usually a better deal (and authenticated!), but I still get very few Craigslist hits in this area!

I own one pair of Lovestory in Aura (25's) and have now since bought another pair in 24's in White.

 

Because of the different portion of fabrics in the two pieces it will be interesting feel the difference on because while Aura has three differential materials of 89% Cotton, 8% Polyester, 3% Elastane while the White denim is only 99% Cotton 1% Spandex; The latter will hold it's size better I suppose due to it's inability not to stretch due to the dominant cotton content - Ultimately the White will be a longer lasting near skin tight  "skinny-flare" fixture.

 

The Aura's did stretch out a little too much for my liking by possibly half a size particularly around the Waistband so it's not quite evenly tight between the waist and the thighs before it flares out (although it might just be how I am shaped). If i had my time again I'd go a 24 in the Aura's as well.

 

I wouldn't rule out getting one or two other Lovestory's because how In love i am with this particular denim but it would be interesting to compare the comfort between them due to alternate blends of material.

 

However I will probably explore other cuts of J Brand if not for a different brand of flare before I get more than what I've got of these.

You also can't go wrong with MiH for flares!
