Hey everyone, Lana here! After being a fan of denim for so long, it is always easy to think I’ve seen it all. However, part of the allure of the denim industry (at least for me) is how creative it is and how many new styles come out right when you think there’s only so much one can do with a pair of jeans! Today I’m bringing you something very different indeed…a Triarchy Skinny Riding Jean in Dark Indigo review!
Triarchy is the blending of the creative visions of two brothers and a sister. Adam studied the art of denim in Italy, Ania entered the equestrian world as a competitive show jumper and was also a fashion model, and Mark was a custom motorcycle designer. The unique experience of all three siblings resulted in this great, very original ready-to-wear brand, that was born in Vancouver. Every pair is structured in Los Angeles and made out of premium Italian and Japanese denim. I received a pair of these Triarchy Skinny Riding Jean in Dark Indigo jeans in my usual size of 26, and I was immediately impressed with the obvious quality of the denim. It is thick and sturdy at 92% cotton, 6% EME (4-way stretch), but soft, in a gorgeous dark blue wash with blended undertones and overtones. There are large hand-dyed leather inserts on the inside of the thighs that make me want to take these on the next motorcycle adventure with my hubby! They also provide resistance from wear and tear and the dreaded crotch blowout that some denim lovers suffer from, while adding a slimming lines to the leg so whether you are a rider or a fashionista, these jeans were made for you. I actually rode horses for most of my childhood life, so these struck a chord with me in that regard!
As well as fit, I found that these jeans fit nice and snugly in the legs, but the waistband and crotch seemed a little big, so I’d suggest sizing down one! They still looked great, according to my hubby who was taking the photos, but I felt that even though they have a 9” high-rise, they could have hugged my hips just a little more. I think after several more wears I might need to wear a belt with these. I do have a more curvy, athletic figure, and have a feeling they might better fit a more svelte figure. However, I do think these are pretty impressive, and the 31” inseam is perfect to tuck into some tall boots or show off a cute pair of heels! I can tell they would last for a very long time, and the leather inserts are more comfortable than I thought they would be—there isn’t much of a seam to irritate or cut into the legs with the snug fit that these jeans have.
I also have a bit of an affinity for jeans that pop, whether it be with a cool print or detailing (I love moto jeans and cargos too!) like these Triarchy jeans have, because they are so fun to style up and down! I think these would be more on the “up” side though, although they’d look hot on a motorcycle and that bold, dark blue wash deserves a spot in the “date night” section of the closet. All in all, I think they are beautiful, I just think ordering a size down is a smart idea.
Unfortunately these jeans are not available until the Autumn/Winter season of this year, so keep your eyes peeled here on Denimology for updates!
