I have quite a few pairs of black coated jeans and love each and every one of them. Always cool and stylish, super versatile and easy to outfit they are absolute essentials in my wardrobe and I bet in yours too. But considering the vast variety of designs (with zippers, studs, articulated knees – just name it!) I just can’t get enough so there is always a spot in my closet for a new pair 🙂 The [search]7 For All Mankind[/search] Ankle Button Skinny in Coated Second Skin Slim Illusion Elasticity Black should be on the top of your list if you are looking for a pair of leather-like jeans to add to your collection.

Even though I love zippers on denim (I will never get tired of them, seriously!!!) sometimes it is really refreshing to see jeans with details other than those; like buttons 🙂 It was actually the buttons that instantly grabbed my attention the first time I saw them online. Big and shiny, the gold ankle snaps are definitely an eye-catching element that adds a touch of glamour and femininity to the edgy simplicity of these pants without being too overwhelming.

The classic 7FAM skinny fit is no doubt ideal for this particular style and is great as usual. This universally flattering silhouette features a medium front rise and no “plumber butt” higher back rise with a contoured waistband and is completed with the slimming set of seams on the front of the body. The shorter inseam also helps create the illusion of a longer and leaner frame showing off the slimmest part of the leg – your ankle.

Now let’s talk about the fabric of these skinnies – Second Skin Slim Illusion. It is the second generation of the “breakthrough and bestselling” (according to 7FAM) Slim Illusion technology which offers denim with 100% elasticity. The fabric is indeed incredibly stretchy providing impeccable shape recovery and comfort. Even the seams in the middle of the knee cap are barely noticeable when you wear them; they could have been a real nightmare in such a slim silhouette but the fabric alleviates any discomfort. The “hand” is also very nice, soft and doesn’t feel plastic-y at all.

I got these jeans in my regular size and was very happy that they fit great. I couldn’t avoid putting on a few extra pounds during my two week Thailand vacay followed by a week of scrumptious Holidays but this denim’s amazing elasticity gave me the bit of room that I needed so they didn’t feel too tight or uncomfortable. With that said they don’t run big, they just give you slightly more latitude thanks to the fabrication.

The 7 For All Mankind Ankle Button Skinny in Coated Elasticity Black are truly a super cool pair of jeans! Whether you already have a few leather-like skinnies or don’t own a single pair these pants will be a great purchase. Don’t you agree?

I am the EU contributor and product reviewer for Denimology. From the time I was 5 years old browsing through my first fashion magazine I knew I wanted to be in this industry. While working as a Merchandiser at Gloria Jeans, the largest denim manufacturer and retailer in Russia, I discovered my passion for denim. It fascinated me then and years later it fascinates me even more. Every day I learn and discover something new and exciting about denim and am thrilled to do it hand in hand with all of you!
