You probably already know from one of my Denimology posts that Paper Denim & Cloth is back – so exciting! I was able to score a few pairs of jeans from their new re-launching collection and must say that I am very impressed. I think you’ll see why as you read my review for the PD & C EZE Skinny Slouch.
The EZE Skinny Slouch is not your typical boyfriend jean; it definitely has a distinct vintage feel to it and will probably remind you of the one’s your boyfriend might have worn in 1992. Both the wash and fit were certainly inspired by the sassy 90’s. A higher 9″ rise and form fitting top block with a roomy thigh are some of the main features that give the EZE Skinny Slouch its vintage look. On the other hand a wider knee (16.5″) and leg-opening (14″) with the rolled cuff add more contemporary flare and create the slouchy relaxed silhouette.
The wash is also a unique mix of different decades. The Icy light blue cast with minimal whiskering and beautiful highs and lows is really reminiscent of the iconic 90’s acid wash and is balanced out by more modern tinting and heavy distressing. I LOVE the “oil spots” and “paint stains” – they give that cool grungy vibe and scruffiness that work so perfectly for this particular style.
These jeans are made of dual ring-spun denim which, due to its production method, has an amazing slubby texture and a great supple “hand”. And though the fabric is relatively heavy at 13 ounces the 100% cotton doesn’t feel stiff or rigid at all. Together the relaxed boyfriend fit and softness of the fabric provide a very comfortable and easy wear.
Size wise the EZE Skinny Slouch, like the rest of my Paper Denim & Cloth jeans, seems to be dead on as my usual size 24 fits just right.
I really love the minimalism of this style along with the great attention to every small detail in this PD & C EZE Skinny Slouch. With the unique one-of-a-kind look and exceptional quality these jeans will be a real joy for true “denim heads” and those who simply appreciate a great pair of jeans. The EZE Skinny Slouch will work great with both a feminine silky blouse and high heels or a basic tee and wedges. Their quirky, effortless style will add an interesting twist and update to many of your outfits.
