Designer Jeans reviews
I was really excited to finally receive these M2F jeans from them in the mail as I have been in love with the brand since I first heard about them. Those of you who read DenimBlog often will know I am a huge fan of colour so it’s great that a denim brand has finally come around that makes vintage looking washes in lots of colours!
I wanted to start by saying that these jeans are so soft! The denim feels like butter and it’s really smooth and comfortable against the skin. It’s lightweight as well so it’s perfect for the warmer weather, it’s really breathable. Being so light in colour will really help reflect the heat too. I also think these jeans are a perfect fit! They are super skinny all the way to the ankle and they have a normal low rise which is just right. The pockets are really simple and only have a little bit of embroidery at the top as you can see and I think that’s a good point to have on a coloured jean, you don’t want them too over the top.
Since pink is my all time favourite colour I chose the Rose shade they have on offer. I was torn between picking the purple or the yellow as well but pink is more versatile in my opinion and I’m really glad I picked this shade. I love how they do the washes, they are completely faded and look so worn in, they definitely have that vintage and sun bleached look to them. It’s really nice to have new jeans feel just like they are your favourite pair you have spent ages breaking in and have made really soft and worn out.
I took a size 28 in these and I am glad I did as they do run quite tight. I’m normally between a 27 and a 28 so I would recommend going with your bigger size if you are between sizes. The denim is very stretchy though so they are not uncomfortable at all, even though they fit snug all over you can still move in them and feel relaxed. That’s another thing I love about the jeans. They do look really small when you get them out of the package but sometimes I am suprised with that in general because of how much jeans can expand with stretch.
I do think these M2F Jeans are so much fun! They are going to be perfect to wear all Summer because of how light the washes are and the array of colours they come in. They are definitely everything I expected them to be, if not more. I have already received a few compliments wearing them for the first time so I would definitely recommend the brand to you.
We have already started seeing celebs in the brand like Whitney Port, LeAnn Rimes and Maria Menounos so I hope we will see more soon! Singer22.com have just ordered them in so you can now be the first to have them by preording them at their website for only $130 here. They will ship on 30th May. That’s another great point about M2F Jeans, they have a lower price tag than most premium denim. As always, if you have any questions about the jeans, just leave a comment and I will answer you as soon as I can!
This weeks review is on a pair of Levi’s Made & Crafted white skinny jeans. As you know white is always a huge colour for Spring and Summer so I was really excited to review these for Levi’s.
The one thing that I love the most about these jeans is they are not see through. So often I will try a pair of white jeans and I can’t wear them because they are just too see through and I don’t feel confident going out like that. It’s wonderful that these are a much thicker denim so it hides everything. You can barely see the pocket bags at the front and it’s pretty safe to wear any colour underwear you wish with these jeans.
As far as the fit goes, these are very skinny, they feel much skinnier than the classic skinny Levi’s jeans. The Made & Crafted collection has a different feel to the denim and they feel a better quality. They are much more durable and like I said, they are super skinny which is nice since I love my jeans to fit like second skin. Since I am so used to wearing jeggings though, they are a bit more restricting when you walk and sit but that’s because of the thicker denim.
There isn’t much to say about the wash since it’s white but it is a pure bright white, it’s not an off white or more of a cream tone, it’s one of the brighter whites that is the perfect shade. I can see these reflecting the sunlight and heat perfectly.
The back pockets are not the most flattering on myself though, I find them to not be positioned as perfect as they could be for my body type but those of you who read my reviews will know how picky I am with back pocket positioning. It’s the first thing I look for in a jean. I’m not saying they are the worst at all, they fit quite well, just not as well as other brands I have tried, but we all have different body shapes so what works for me might not work for someone else. They do run pretty true to size as well.
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.

So I announced to you the Paige Premium and Lorna Collaboration jeans last week, which you can see here if you missed it, and now here are the modelled photos I promised you all. This paticular pair is a bit too big on me so I cuffed them to make them fit a bit more like boyfriend jeans. They don’t come with a cuff, they are full length originally but I feel they suit me better with the cuff. They do run a little bit bigger than most Paige jeans as these are a 28 and I definitely need a 27 in them.
There is now only one size left, size 30, and they have very little stock for that size. They have sold out pretty quickly so thank you to all of you who bought them and love the jeans! I just can’t wait to share with you the other cuts in a couple of months! Let me know if you have any questions about this pair, I will be sure to answer.
I have been wearing these so much lately, they are extremely soft and so comfortable. The fabric is a mix of cotton/elasterell/spandex so you can imagine just how flexible and soft it feels. The Lorna wash has a chalky effect to it, so in some lights it’s lighter and in others it’s darker, it definitely has a lot of character to it. The double back pocket is also really different to most jeans, I haven’t come across a pair with back pockets like this before actually. The front pockets are slanted too to give more of a trouser look. Buy these jeans here online exclusively at Selfridges or exclusively in store at London Selfridges only. They only have size 30 left to buy online with low stock but they have all sizes except 27 and 29 to buy in store.
