This weeks review is on a pair of James Jeans Twiggy denim leggings in W.Troy wash. I got these quite a while ago but they were a bit too tight at the time so I didn’t review them. They fit me now though and I am really pleased they do because they are beautiful! They are size 27 and run pretty true to size, maybe a little on the small side.
We have seen so many celebs wearing James Jeans Twiggy denim leggings and now I understand why there is so much love for them. They are one of the most stretchiest pairs of jeggings but they are also a pair that keep you all in place and still look flattering. They are sturdy like a normal pair of jeans but a lot more comfortable than regular denim. The fit is one of the skinniest I have tried in a while, they fit like second skin with a medium rise which is perfect.
This is my first time actually trying a pair of James Jeans denim, I had the cargos before, which I loved, but these jeans were pleasantly surprising. I never know what to expect when trying a new brand of jeans, sometimes they can be wonderful and sometimes they can be a complete disaster. The back pockets are also in a good place to flatter the butt which is always important and I am growing quite fond of the signature pocket design.
The W.Troy wash wasn’t the original wash I wanted to try as it had polyester in the fabric content but I was actually pleased when I tried these on that you can’t feel the polyester. Sometimes it’s hit or miss when it comes to poly/cotton blend jeans, sometimes they can itch my legs like crazy and sometimes you can’t feel it at all. W.Troy is a really dark blue denim that doesn’t have much depth to it, it’s just plain but most dark washes are like that. It’s a great wash for dressing up!

This weeks review is on J Brand’s new Agnes fit in the Vintage Navy Twill wash. I took a size down in these from my Houlihan in Vintage Olive size because I think the Agnes is better suited to being worn tighter than loose like the cargos. They do run the same as the Houlihan’s in Vintage Olive though so the sizing is pretty consistent.
I couldn’t work out if I liked these more than the Houlihan’s or not, I think I may like them equally but there is something about these Agnes that just make them so different and likable. I love the zippers on the lap area and the extra long zippers at the ankles, so combining those with the moto style stitching around the knee area, really makes these something special! The other thing that makes me slightly more partial to the Agnes over the Houlihan is the back pockets, these actually have pockets on the back where as the Houlihan just have flaps.
I find these to be a lot more skinny than the Houlihan though, but then that may be because I took a size down. They just feel skinnier in the calf area and at the ankles. The Twill fabric is amazing! It’s so soft and so stretchy, it’s one of my favourite fabrics around at the moment and the washes that J Brand have been bringing this Agnes cut out in are beautiful! I adore the Stealth wash but the Vintage Navy is definitely a lot more practical and wearable for every day errands.
I think, just like the Houlihan took the world by storm last season, the Agnes is definitely the cut to watch out for! We have already seen it on a lot of celebs but I can see it popping up a lot more now they have released it in many washes. I would absolutely recommend this cut to you if you haven’t yet tried it, if you are a fan of the Houlihan then you will adore these! I find it’s always nice to make a change in what you wear sometimes, as much as we love denim here at DenimBlog, it is nice to have a break and wear a different style and fabric from a denim brand every now and then.
