Designer Jeans reviews
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.
This weeks review is a little different to the normal ones as I’m mixing a mini review with a styling post. The reason for this is because I was planning on reviewing these jeans properly, but upon receiving them, I’m too short for them to fit me correctly, so I didn’t think it would be a very accurate review.
