James Jeans Twiggy Skinny Jeans in Slate II - front view

James Jeans is definitely a brand that I love to review – their jeans never disappoint. And this time is no exception, the pair that I got truly is great! Here’s why I like them so much; it seems like I’m not alone…

Yes, yes, yes, you guessed right – these are the same jeans that celebs like Emily Blunt and Busy Philipps have been wearing lately. These ladies clearly love them and not without reason. The Slate II color is elegant and chic and will even bring a touch of sophistication to a fairly casual outfit. Such shade of gray is also very easy to pair with other hues which means you won’t have to spend hours figuring out what to wear with them. These Twiggies are a great Summer alternative to your favorite black skinnies which definitely need a rest for a few months. Oh and another major plus of these jeans is that they are absolutely season-less and you can enjoy them year around.

Twiggy is one of the most popular James Jeans fits and I can definitely understand why. These skinnies cling to your body and show it off in the most flattering way. The ultra slim leg with narrow 10” leg opening creates a long and lean silhouette while the shorter 30” inseams keeps the look neat and clean. On the higher side medium 8” rise conceals any signs of a tummy and visually makes it flatter. Your butt will also benefit from these jeans as they make it round and high. Special darted back pockets really help to shape it up and give a slight lift. As you see, every detail in these skinnies is very well though out and has a purpose.

When I received these jeans their fabric grabbed my attention right away. It was so soft, almost plush. This denim seems to be brushed for a “sueded” touch and indeed has an incredible hand feel. It is a blend of 97% cotton and 3% Lycra and is stretchy enough to make you comfortable as well as to keep the garment’s original shape. The 9.5 oz. medium weight is suitable for pretty much any weather and helps give these skinnies’ year ‘round appeal.

Based on my personal experience these jeans run true to size – my usual 24 fits me like a glove. However if you prefer you skinnies not so close to the skin you can probably size up; their denim has  great structure and recovery and won’t bag out too much even in a slightly looser silhouette.

The James Jeans Twiggy Skinny Jeans in Slate II are a great pair of denim that once again shows how much the brand has to offer its customers. I am definitely one of their many fans and looking forward to new pieces and future collections!

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!
