I know in a few of my reviews I’ve claimed to find my favorite pair of jeans and at that time I was definitely telling the truth. But now looking back and also inside of my closet I am 100% sure (maybe 99%) that this is THE ONE – the 7 For All Mankind Skinny in Red Lacquer.
These jeans are crazy awesome! I really don’t think that pictures do them any justice; you need to see these skinnies in real life to fully understand what I am talking about. The Lacquer finish is a whole new level of coating and is created by hand-pressing foil onto the jean which almost melts into the fabric. The result is jeans that look like they are made of patent leather. The coating is pretty even throughout the whole garment but has a few intentional imperfections which add to the authenticity and rocker-ish feel of the jeans. And let’s not forget about the color – this bright lipstick red is stunning!
Lacquer and Skinny fit are like peanuts and chocolate – perfect for each other. The slim sexy silhouette accentuates and highlights the edgy, bold look of the “foiled” denim and the high-gloss fabric adds even more to the already “hot” jeans. These skinnies are really made to bring out the beauty of your body and create a beautiful feminine shape. The 6.75″ front rise and 11.25″ back rise with a very comfortable well-fitting waist band prevents any “spilling over” and those not-so-much-loved “love handles”. The shorter 30″ inseam and smaller 10″ leg opening complement the clean streamlined look.
The hand feel of the denim is obviously different on the outer surface where it is VERY sleek and leather-ish and inside where it is super soft and supple. You really won’t experience any discomfort because of the coating when wearing these jeans. In fact you’ll be very-very comfy and will still get all of the benefits of a 98% cotton/2% spandex blend with its great elasticity and retention.
7 For All Mankind did a fantastic job with their Red Lacquer Skinnies – such a fresh, innovative design that pushes the envelope without trying too hard. You really won’t have to make much of an effort to look super “hot” in these jeans even in a white T-shirt and a pair of high-tops. I am stoked about these skinnies and hope my excitement is contagious to you!
