Amsterdams Blauw by Maison Scotch La Parisienne Zip Skinny Jeans in Concrete Dark Review
I’ve been fond of Maison Scotch for quite a while now and never walk by the Scotch & Soda Abbot Kinney store without going in. I love their fun, quirky tees, cozy sweatshirts and sweaters and eye-catching jackets. However, oddly enough I have never gotten or even tried on any of their denim. Really can’t tell you why as this jean from the new Amsterdams Blauw Collection is actually really cool!

For my review I got a pair of La Parisienne Zip Jeans in Concrete Dark. The Concrete Dark is a really pretty grey-to-black wash with an expressive while not overwhelming bleached marbling; basically a modern, cleaner take on an acid wash. Though it is quite bold and statement-worthy you probably won’t consider it aggressive; in fact it’s very versatile thanks to its neutral shades and tonality. While more contrasting and intense washes can be quite difficult to outfit and primarily work only with solids or larger prints this one is very easy and goes great even with small scale patterns. I like the addition of asymmetrically placed zippers on the front and a-la tuxedo stripe matching insert on the side – these details make the jeans that much more interesting and add an edgy, moto-chic touch.

La Parisienne is a super skinny jean that fits very slim through the whole leg tapering into a narrow 10” leg opening. It is a low-rise pant with a higher back rise that provides great coverage and a comfy waistband that ensures “no-spill”, smooth sides. The back pockets are rounded which visually makes your tush rounder too. I got these jeans in a 30” inseam which is my absolute favorite in skinnies as it doesn’t cause any stacking at the bottom. However if you are taller or like your jeans slightly longer there is the option of 32” and even 34” for bigger sizes. I love that the brand gives you an inseam choice – it’s so convenient!

These jeans are made of a stretchy denim with 92% cotton, 6% elastomer and 2% elastane content. It is a quite “beefy” fabric (10 oz. weight) and so it is especially nice that it has great amount of elasticity. Since the denim is quite thick this pant isn’t ideal for a very hot day but will be great for any weather of 75°F and below.

These jeans are in my regular size and I am very happy with the way they fit. Though they could have been slightly tighter in my butt and around the waist they don’t sag or slide down and look great on which is one of the best signs of a fab cut.

I am very impressed with these Amsterdams Blauw by Maison Scotch La Parisienne Zip Jeans in Concrete Dark and totally inspired to check out more of the brand’s denim. Judging by these skinnies and the recent Fall/Winter’14 Lookbook published by Lisette there are a lot of amazing pieces that you and I will love!

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!
