I’ve had a shopping fever for a while now, I’m not sure why exactly, but probably it has something to do with the new season and big wardrobe cleaning, resorting and curating. I’m planning to write about it a whole post soon, but I’m not finished just yet. Anyway, I have to show you a lot of stuff until then, and this was the next stop.
Which btw was generated a simple online visit on Levi’s website. To be exact this exact piece of clothing, but more about it a bit later.
If you’re a Londoner probably you know, the Levi’s flag store is on Regent Street and if you’re approaching it from Oxford Circus, there is a pretty big H&M in the way. Where I reminded I saw those pretty good jeans for less than the above mentioned Levi’s, so it was worth to give them a shot again.
This is what I wore; Mango jacket, new Topshop shaket (still hate this word, but don’t know better, duh), Uniqlo tee, Re/Done jeans, Balenciaga bag and Office boots. A bit more colourful than I wear usually, but I think this kind of pinkish red goes really well with darker wash jeans, doesn’t it?
And if I was there, I tried this almost clever Jacquemus like bow tee in the fuchsia shade that I love the most at the moment. I’m saying almost clever, because the implementation didn’t turn out great to say at least. You can’t really see here, but believe me, when I’m saying my left boob’s modesty was only saved by my phone holding hand (and my bra, that’s not the point :)).
You probably think, this is what those bows are for, but don’t be fooled, the are pretty useless, and have no purpose whatsoever. I then I haven’t mentioned the £30 price, which I think is a bit hefty especially for a wrong design. Le sigh…
Moving on, these are the before mentioned jeans for £40, and the wash and fit is pretty good, but my mind hasn’t changed since the last time when I tried them the very first time. I think they would look great on a taller/leaner frame, but since I don’t have that, I went to Levi’s.
If you read this post, you know I already toyed with the thought to buy these modern Levi’s skinnies, but I didn’t like the heavily distressed look on either of them. It took me for a while to find what I was looking for, but when I did, I tried two types again, because why the hell not?
So these are called Stretch Skinny Jeans in Post Modern Blues (£95), and as the name suggests, there is 1% elastane in them, which is on the one hand is a good idea, because they look good on and they’re also pretty comfy, but on the other hand, you can feel this is not a full cotton thing, and I don’t like that feeling anymore.
But luckily these Skinny Jeans in Pop Rock (great name, isn’t it?) and these ones check all the right boxes for me, even though these are a bit more expensive (£110). They’re a tiny bit darker than I though or what the photos suggest on the website, but the fit is amazing (this is my usual size and shortest lenght), there is no need for elastane, and the salvage seam is a good bonus, a really nice, true Levi’s touch if you will.
Needless to say, I went with these in the end, and so happy I did. They seem a really good purchase so far and if you’re not fond of the idea of paying a lots of bucks and or time to repurposed vintage jeans, then these (or the stretchy ones) mean a really great alternative.
I hope you liked this post, let me know if you found it useful. 🙂 Oh and have a great weekend guys!
