Red Engine is a Los Angeles based denim brand founded in 1999. I must say I am very impressed with my first pair of RE denim – the Scorcher Skinny in Gemstone. Though this wash is nothing crazy and quite basic it is executed at the highest level and is really beautiful. I love the deep rich shade of indigo accompanied by intense hand sanding and pronounced front whiskers; they are the ultimate “go-to” jeans! I also like orange-ish tinted weft that will add that little extra something when you roll or cuff the pants. The red flame printed pocket lining is another cool/cute detail that I personally appreciate ☺
The Scorcher is a really nice and well-done fit. The “signature” medium rise is comfortable and very flattering. It will also help to camouflage any tummy and visually elongate the leg line. This silhouette is very true to its Super Skinny name and embraces every curve of your body. The just below the ankle length keeps the look clean and easy and works perfectly for a somewhat narrow 10″ leg opening.
You’ll love the fabric of the Gemstone Scorcher. It is so soft and has an unbelievably velvety and supple hand feel. It is also very stretchy, in fact maybe even stretchier than you’d expect from the regular 98% cotton/2% elastane blend. It’s no surprise that these jeans keep their shape nicely and are super comfy to wear all day long ☺
I am always a bit anxious about sizing in brands that are new for me and getting jeans without trying them on can be risky. With that said, these jeans in my regular 24 fit just right so your usual size is the way to go.
I am very excited about my new Red Engine Scorcher in Gemstone! You know how important it is to have a pair or two of those ideal jeans that you can count on any time, that are easy to pull into an outfit and most importantly that you know you look good in . And these jeans got an A+ in each one of those categories for me! And I think they will for you too ☺
