James Jeans is one of the most environmentally friendly and conscious denim brands out there. For their production they use organic cotton, plant indigo dye and unique open air sun drying technology. With that said they truly show that sustainability can also be very stylish and their Fall/Winter’13 collection is great proof of that. That’s why I was super excited to get a chance to review a couple of JJ styles and the Jagger Studded Super Skinny in Silver Crystal is one of them.
This particular piece is clearly very eye-catching. The silver coating is quite bright and shiny and almost has a liquid metal effect which, as I’m sure you know, is so “in” right now. The studded detail above the knee is a signature feature for the Jagger and looks totally awesome. I like that the studs are not smooth but have tiny little facets that glisten in the light to add a bit extra oomph. These jeans have a pronounced edgy and sexy feel and I LOVE IT!
I loved the fit from the first second I put these jeans on. The lower 7.5″ front rise is pretty sexy while the 12″ back rise provides good “modest” coverage which along with the angled darted back pockets gives your butt a nice lift and a perfect round shape. Slim through the whole leg these jeans fit your body like a glove and instantly create a longer and leaner silhouette. The 30″ inseam with 10″ leg opening hits perfectly right below the ankle which suits the clean modern style of the Silver Crystal Jagger.
The fabric of these jeans is a medium weight (9.5 oz.) blend of 52% cotton, 26% rayon, 21% polyester and 1% spandex. It is fairly stretchy, feels breathable and keeps its shape very well unlike many coated styles. I like its comfy soft hand feel on the inside and smooth leather-ish surface outside.
In the pictures I am wearing size 25 instead of my normal 24 and as you see they fit great. Though I still have a bit of room and would probably be able to squeeze into a smaller pair I strongly believe that size 25 was the right choice. Keep in mind that the studded detail and insert above it can cut right into your thigh if the pants are too tight. So to avoid a “stuffed sausage” look it may be a good idea to go a size up unless you have pretty skinny legs.
I totally adore the James Jeans Jagger Studded Super Skinny in Silver Crystal and am extremely excited to have a pair of my own! They not only make you look good but also feel differently as they bring out confidence, heighten your sense of adventure and showcase your inner rock star!
