Greetings again, my fellow denim fans! When the weather gets warmer, some of my favorite styles of denim start to emerge such as cropped style jeans. Another favorite of mine are bohemian patchwork style jeans, so I got really excited when I saw these. I’m a big fan of patchwork on my denim. These are Siwy Kasia Skinny Jeans in Requiem.
I really like Siwy Jeans, particularly their Hannah jeans (see my past review for Siwy Hannah Jeans in Varnish here). I love the cropped fit on them. If you’re a fan of their Hannah jeans, then you will definitely like the fit on these jeans, as it is very similar. These are also cropped jeans with a 26 inch inseam. What sets these apart a bit is the bottom hem. One of my favorite things about this pair of jean is the frayed hem. It adds something a little different with a fun casual twist. The rise is 7 inches. These have an extremely skinny fit, more so than most of the Hannah jeans I’ve tried. They are body-hugging throughout the thighs, calves, and down to the leg opening of 11 inches. There isn’t much stretch to these jeans. Made of 98% cotton and 2% elastan, don’t rely on these jeans to have much elasticity. In fact, I’d say these run almost a size small. They are very fitted along the waistband as well.
The color is called Requiem, which is a medium blue with fading throughout the thighs, calves, and rear and whiskering along the waistband, front, and rear. The front knees have navy blue colored patches that are 8 ¼ inches long and made of a thinner, non-denim material of 100% cotton.
The rear pockets are also a little different from Siwy’s classic styles. These pockets are plain in style without Siwy’s usual signature quilted design. I like Siwy’s signature pockets, as they add to a rear lifting illusion. But I don’t mind the simplicity of these pockets as well. The rear left inner waistband has a hand-crafted label made of vintage feedsack cloth, making each pair of Siwy jeans truly one-of-a -kind.
Washing instructions are: Machine wash cold with like colors, only non-chlorine bleach, tumble dry medium, warm iron if necessary.
