Ask Lisette - Your Questions About Denim Ask Lisette Logo.jpg

Happy Tuesday everybody! Here I am for all of you denim addicts in need of answers to some of your questions.

Patricia from Brazil asked asks where to find jeans for long legs that also fit comfortably. She will be going to Miami and wants to know where to find them.
Gap carries a line which is called Gap 1969 Long & Lean Jeans, the price is under $70.
SOLD Design Lab offers an extremely comfortable style which is called the High Heel Bell, in case you want to do a flare style.
You can also opt for a pair of J Brand Lovestory Flare Jeans which are known for their extra long length right off the rack. 35 inches!

Marcia, also from Brazil, is asking about light weight jeans to wear in about 100 degree weather that don’t “pinch” but are loose fitting, make you look slim and sexy and aren’t outrageously priced.
Marcia, you should try some of the H&M jeans. They are exactly what you are looking for and for a very reasonable price, none of them more than $30.
FOREVER 21 offers a variety of very trendy styles and then Target also offers jeans very reasonably priced and offer you a wide range of styles. You can find the Denizen Jeans made by Levi’s. Not only are they priced really nice, but, they are cut just right.
Now, loose fitting jeans that make you look slim, well this is kind of difficult on a budget but I would suggest trying jeans from Black Orchid. These jeans flatter without pinching in at your waist.
Unfortunately though, you will either have to buy the jeans from the US. In Brazil, it is very hard to find reasonably priced jeans that also fit and wear well 🙁

Angela K asked, “How about brands that are good for people with more undefined waists & narrower hips? I’m on the small end of the spectrum but, I’m sure some larger women have this fit problem too. If the jeans fit my hips, the waist pinches, and if they fit my waist, the hips are too big.”
Angela, being “on the small side”, as you said, you are an ideal candidate for a boyfriend or slouchy fit jeans.
If you want to do a skinny, try DL1961. Their 4-way stretch helps molding the jeans to your body.
You may also consider the Levi’s Curve ID. You’re probably a Slight Curve; those jeans are designed to celebrate straight figures. Just walk into any Levi’s store and an associate there will measure you and indicate the right fit for you.

Andre asks, “What kind of jeans should a man dress in to attract women? The boot cut is still useful? Thanks!”
Hey Andre, boot cut for men? Well…. You won’t find my guy in bootcuts.
For me, the sexiest jeans for guys are the slim straight styles. If you are tall and thin, you might consider a skinny pair of jeans like Nudie Jeans Grim Tim Jeans.
Try Diesel. They have lots of styles ranging from very skinny (Thanaz) to straight (Thavar or Viker) and even bootcut styles (Zatiny or Zathan).
Another brand to try is Cult of Individuality. Their Rocker jeans are just the right “middle” way between slim and straight cut. Just one bit of advice: never, ever go slouchy, baggy!

And last, but not least, Chris asked, “I recently saw a pair of jeans (on someone of course). I could tell they were designer because I love jeans but could not tell the brand. They were dark washed skinny with contrast stitching. The pockets had a half arc sort of like Joe’s but I don’t believe they were Joe’s. They also had a brown leather label on the back waist but I could not make out the brand. Any brand come to mind?”
Chris, unfortunately, I can not help you with this one. 🙁
But here is a piece of advice: when I see someone wearing a pair of jeans that I find truly amazing, I just walk up to this person and ask if I could please take a picture of their jeans.The worst that can happen is that they say no. Usually, you get lucky and they will let you take a picture. You can also just ask them what brand they are wearing, there is no reason why they wouldn’t answer you! 🙂

I hope I have helped you guys out a bit here and I looking forward to solving more denim-dilemmas for you here next week. If you have any denim questions you want answered please email me.

Have a great week!

  5. I need to know other brands that fit as good as Diesel…. I mean not only the cut or style but the type of jeans, kind of soft but not too tied….. Stretch usually fits me too tied and I look fatter than I’m actually am….. Please advise – I feel like I’m a Diesel slave or something…..
