Designer Jeans reviews
This weeks review is on a pair of Koral Los Angeles Skinny jeans in Dirty Destroyed. You may remember the very first time I introduced you all to Koral with an interview (click here) and my previous review on their Merlot skinny jeans (click here), which have made it to my top 5 jeans of all time, so I am quite excited to be reviewing another pair from the brand, this time opting for a classic blue.
My review this week is on a pair of Dittos Jessica jeans in Dirty Dog from the brands SS13 collection. It’s been a long time since I wore a pair of acid washed jeans and this is also actually the first time I have tried out Dittos. I’ve always liked some of their styles when I have seen them online and in look books, but I hadn’t ever got around to testing a pair out.
For the second part of this review, I’d like to talk a little bit about selvedge. When the Japanese started making denim, they used old fashioned narrow looms which made a narrow strip of more tightly woven fabric. To the edges a different coloured fabric (usually red, but other colours were used) was attached. This was to prevent unravelling. As Levi’s and other brands started to mass produce jeans, a wider sheet of fabric was used and this led to a drop in the quality of the jeans.
