Designer Jeans reviews
I am always looking for the perfect solid pair of black jeans. Whether it be the color, fit or fabric chosen, it has been one that has been a mission. Though The Looker in Not Guilty by MOTHER is a pair that I would place pretty high up on the pyramid. From the comfort to the little details, see why I am a fan of these below.
Famed denim designer, Georges Marciano, who is known for bringing denim to the forefront of fashion, has recently launched his own denim and apparel brand! Marciano was the inventor of stone washed jeans and so many of us have worn his creations from other brands, but going it alone means there’s more room for him to expand and be creative with his designs!
I’m happy to report that my review this week is on one of his new pieces, the Shelby Denim Vest in Aged Indigo. I got this vest in a size S, and it is a little big in the arms when it’s not done up, and I generally like to wear them fitted, so XS would have been my size if it was in stock, so it does run true to size in terms of sizing for jackets in my opinion. It’s quite similar to that of Levi’s.
I love the structure of this denim vest though, it’s made of a stretch denim so it’s really comfortable to wear, but the details like the zig zag stitching down the buttons and the two pockets with copper buttons on are really cool. They add a little depth to the vest, to keep it from looking too plain. The wash though is really pretty, it’s a bleached out denim with an intense, vibrant blue, so it looks great with black or grey skinny jeans! I can also see this looking amazing over a maxi dress or skirt too! It’s faded in the right spots and it even has some distressing for the worn in appearance.
I am a huge advocate of denim vests myself, so I’m happy to report that I quite like this one and it is one that I would recommend to you if you are on the look out for a casual, distressed denim vest with a bit of a lower price point! Also, you can read a little more about Georges Marciano below! Let me know what you think of the new brand and this denim vest! Buy this denim vest online at their website by clicking here.
