I love when my favorite brands (J Brand being one of them) comes out with new cuts. So I was really excited when they introduced these, J Brand Cass Midrise Capri Jeans.
What sets these jeans apart mostly from all of J Brand’s many skinny jeans is the wash. It’s called Vintage Stripe. It’s a royal blue with thin white jagged stripes. There is some light fading along the thighs and back legs. Initially, it kind of reminded me of a locomotive engineer, and I imagined myself looking like one of those men wearing those hats and overalls in this striped pattern while operating a train. But once I slipped these on, that was the farthest image from my mind. These fit like a dream. In my opinion, J Brand is one of the brands that have really mastered the art of creating flattering fitted jeans, particularly with their skinny jeans. The cut on these illustrates just that. They’re very body-hugging, fitted all along the thighs, calves, down to the ankles which have a 9 ½ inch leg opening. There’s an 8 inch long zipper along the back legs which allows for an easier leg opening. The rise is 7 ½ inches, giving these mid-rise which I’ve also come to appreciate. I feel like mid-rise gives a nicer illusion of a flatter tummy. I love that these hit at my ankles with a 27 inch inseam.
These are a classic five pocket style with J Brand’s classic minimal pocket design. The material is made of 97.8% cotton and 2.2% spandex, made of a nice light-weight denim allowing for wear through the warmer seasons. So you don’t have to worry about roasting in your jeans if you wear these through the summer. When I first saw the jeans, they looked like something out of the junior department. They look really small sitting on a hanger, but they do stretch quite a bit once you slide them on. There’s a decent amount of elasticity to these jeans, and they surprisingly fit true to size despite how small they appear initially. Washing instructions are: Wash inside out in cold water with like colors, do not bleach, tumble dry low, remove promptly, do not iron.
