RES is a young brand from Melbourne, Australia that is truly inspired by the deeply rooted traditions of denim culture. While following those principals its team re-works and modernizes them into a look that is relevant for today. This brand’s styles and even their names (like Trashqueen or Getting Hi 🙂 ) are fun and quirky and add excitement to the casual fashion of denim. The RES Kitty Skinny Jeans in Delinquent Vintage is a perfect example of their original and stirring spirit.
I liked the Delinquent wash from the get-go and without a doubt it is great particularly for the Spring/Summer season. It features a medium blue shade with somewhat intense handsanding and whiskering and has an easy and laid-back authentic vibe. The massive holes on both knees however make it a bit bolder and edgier justifying its “outlaw” name 🙂 But jokes aside, this wash is very cool and you girls will absolutely love it!
The Kitty is a true jegging fit and is very slim through the leg and thigh. With that said it is slightly roomier in the hip and waist which gives you more freedom of movement and makes the overall tight silhouette much more comfortable. The Kitty is a medium rise jean with a raised back rise –it flatters your mid-section nicely as well as provides great back coverage. Though the inseam is fairly long (32”) it doesn’t cause bulky stacking on the bottom thanks to the narrow 10” leg opening and looks very good even when unaltered or uncuffed. My jeans are rolled just because I felt like it today 🙂 Overall this silhouette is sleek and sexy.
The denim of these skinnies is a combination of 98% cotton and 2% spandex. It is more on the heavier side (10.5 oz.) and feels very substantial which adds more structure to the jean. The amount of stretch in it is plenty for the jean to get adjusted to your individual body shape and keep you comfortable while wearing it. The hand feel is nice and soft as well.
First I got the Kitty in a size 24; they came all the way from Australia and… didn’t fit! The jeans were way too narrow in the calves and knees so I could hardly bend my leg. The decision to size up was logical and worked out very well so you may do the same to insure a perfect fit.
The RES Kitty Skinny in Delinquent Vintage is a great jean that clearly shows that RES is a brand to watch. And now you have an awesome chance to get a pair of your own via one of our April Giveaways here on Denimology.
