Hello Denimology friends. Susan here from StylePosts. I hope you all are enjoying some nice Spring weather where you are.
Siwy Denim has developed quite a celebrity following since their launch in 2005. And if you’ve ever tried Siwy jeans, then you probably know why. I’m particularly fond of the Hannah cut (see my review here), which has a slight cropped fit. So I was really excited to give their Ruthie Cropped Jeans a try.
Siwy has yet to disappoint me with the fit of their jeans. These jeans are nice and fitted throughout the thighs and calves with a 12 inch leg opening. But they don’t feel overly constricting. Made of 98% cotton and 2% elastan, they have a very decent amount of stretch, allowing for a comfortable fit along the waistband. This is important to me, particularly when the jeans have a lower rise (the rise on these is 7 ½ inches). I don’t like the feeling of a rigid and tight fit along the waistband when it sits low on my hips. But these have a nice and comfortable amount of elasticity to them. These jeans run true to size.
I like the cropped length on these, which has a 25 inch inseam (keep in mind that measurements may vary slightly with different sizes). The wash is called Crystall Ball which is a really pretty dark blue wash with some slight fading and whiskering along the front thighs and rear.
The rear pockets are rounded in shape with Siwy’s signature quilted pocket design, which gives the illusion of a lift to the rear (something I can really appreciate!). The pockets have a gold colored contrast stitch which brings out the Siwy design nicely against the dark blue wash. The inner waistband is adorned with their signature label made of vintage feed-sack material.
Washing instructions are: machine wash cold, use non-chlorine bleach only, tumble dry medium, warm iron if necessary.
With Spring upon us and the weather warming up, I have a feeling these may be one of my regular go-to jeans this season. They’re definitely a classic staple that can last for many seasons to come. And with the dark wash, I can definitely see myself wearing these well into the Fall.
