Designer Jeans reviews
I received these Lucky Brand Hayden straight leg jeans in Corolla for review. When first trying them on, I was really impressed by two things: the flattering cut and how soft they are! With a fabric composition of 92% cotton and 6% elastomultiester, 2% elastane, the fabric is very soft, with a good amount of stretch. It is also thick enough to provide a nice shape and give that flattering fit. One of the biggest gripes I have with jeans with a lot of stretch is they tend to lose their shape over time. I’ve been wearing these on a weekly basis over the past month or so, and they have held their shape pretty nicely, with minimal stretching.
The Hayden Straight Leg is a true straight leg style, with a 14.5″ leg opening. I chose the regular inseam, which is 32″, they hit me right at my ankles (I usually wear a 32-34″ inseam, for an ankle fit or a full length fit). These also have a mid-high rise which is 10″ in the front and 14.5″ inches in the back. One of the additional features is that these have a slimming panel in the front, which is designed to slim but is not at all constricting or uncomfortable. I got my normal size in these and found that it does fit slightly on the larger side but not enough to size down.
Although I’m an avid lover of dark washes, I chose the Corolla wash because I wanted something a little lighter for spring and summer. The wash is a nice mid/light blue with white undertones and tonal stitching details. There is subtle whiskering and fading down the front of the thighs and around the back near the pockets. The wash looks really great worn with white to bring out the undertones or bolder spring colors like yellow and cobalt blue.
One of the things that impressed me the most about these jeans was the attention to detail. I love that each rivet, both front and back is stamped with Lucky’s signature 4 leaf clover design. The design is incorporated in other places throughout as well, including with the front pocket lining and a small patch along the back. It’s a subtle, but nice touch. The coin pocket also has a unique design with a slit hole and curved bottom which nicely mirrors the curve of the front pockets.
Overall, I impressed by how these jeans managed to be slimming without being too constricting or stiff. The wash is great for a day-to-day wear and pairs nicely with so many different colors. I’m sure I’ll be wearing these jeans quite a bit this upcoming spring! You can buy these jeans online from Lucky’s Website.

I know you might be thinking it’s been quite a while since I did a denim review for you all, and it has, it’s been months, but it’s time to share something new with you again. This time I’m doing a review on the Rag & Bone The Skinny Leather Pants in Washed Black. I got these from Rag & Bone a few weeks ago and they are the first pair of leather pants that I have ever tried before. I can’t compare them to others since I haven’t tried them, but I can compare them to faux leather and these are 100 times better. I don’t think I’m being biased either as these are the first pair that I own and have no others as reference, my opinions on them are exactly how they make me feel and how they fit, how they look etc and they are honest. I hope you like the review! You can buy these leather pants online at Rag & Bone by clicking here.
A review of my favorite new Joe’s Jeans pants and why they’re great for the Spring…
AGOLDE would have to be one of my favorite brands and I was excited to try out a pair to review. I chose their Skinny in Black as though they are just a standard black wash, jeans do change from brand to brand. These jeans are no different, but I didn’t expect anything less than a great pair by the brand.
I went for a size 28 in these, which is usually my standard size in men’s. I would say that they started off a little tight, but as I wore them, they did start to give a little and I am sure that they will stretch to fit me. Most aren’t into the idea of stretching to fit, but I feel with men’s jeans this is the perfect way to find the perfect fit that still feels fitted without bagging after being worn in.
The fit of these is classic. For me personally, they are slightly baggier in the leg than I prefer, but they are ones that many guys will love as they aren’t super skinny on the leg. They are a fitted style that though bigger on me will fit slim on others like the photo above. There is also a stack or two on me, but nothing to merit cuffing them due to it being long.
The denim used is soft against the skin, which is great and there is still some stiffness to them as they only have 1% stretch to the denim. Though low in stretch, they so still have some give which allows movement. The quality of the denim is also great, especially for the price point. They feel like they have a lot of mileage to them that I think many guys look for in their jeans.
Overall, these are a great pair to try out if you are still looking for that perfect black pair of jeans. They are clean, which many guys look for, and they have a good fit with a great feel to them that will make you want to wear them day-to-day. You can click here to purchase these jeans from REVOLVE.
