Hey there friends! I have an amazing new jean to introduce to you – it’s The Scuba Jean in “Midnight” by Rag & Bone. Rag & Bone is a brand I’ve been lusting after for awhile, so I was stoked to finally get the chance to review some of their denim.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with the brand, Rag & Bone was founded in 2002 by Marcus Wainwright and David Neville. Two guys with no formal fashion training that had a vision and ran with it. What I admire most about their garments is that the majority is produced in the US, and is still sewn the same way clothing was sewn 50 years ago! Marcus & David are innovative designers that create clothing that is classic yet modern, and each piece is made with high quality material.
I’ve always been fond of Rag & Bone’s denim, and have often viewed their denim designs as a step ahead of some of the top designers out there. Their denim reflects an edgy, yet sleek persona that instantly draws you in. It’s no doubt that Rag & Bone is a brand well known in the celeb community. Malin Ackerman, Bar Rafaeli, Miranda Kerr, and Khloe Kardashian are just a small handful of the celebs that have been snapped in Rag & Bone’s denim.
When I first opened the Rag & Bone package, my jaw dropped because I am a girl that has a serious obsession with zippers on denim (see some of my previous reviews featuring zippered denim HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE). When I saw that the zippers ran all the way up the leg, I was excited! I’ve never seen a jean like this before!! These jeans are definitely not for the shy!
The jeans are treated super stretch denim that consists of 66% cotton, 30.5% polyester, and 3.5% lycra. They have great stretch, yet they still maintain their fit. The inseam is 28″, which I love. It hits right at the ankle – so chic with heels! I love the higher rise (9″ is perfect in my book). These jeans do not have any front pockets, and I don’t mean they have front pockets but they are sewn shut. There are no seams for faux pockets in the front. I actually think pockets in the front would take away from the clean streamlined look these jeans have. They have back patch pockets with contrast logo stitching. The logo is subtle, a simple R&B on the back pocket. I prefer subtle logos over loud ones.
I love a black jean. In fact, I reach for a black pair of jeans more frequently through the week, than I do a typical blue wash. They are a jean I can wear to the office with a blazer on days other than just casual Friday. Black jeans can be easily dressed up, and the ones made with quality material sometimes don’t even look like denim. Although I won’t be donning these zippered loves to the office, I can definitely say I’ll be rocking these on weekends in full force. Whether I’m going for a laid back or dressed up look, these jeans can take me there with ease. They’re super fun and very eye catching. I can easily see these jeans turning heads and accepting compliments left and right.
