frayed hem jeans

Alessandra Ambrosio was out in Los Angeles, wearing a pair of her – customary?! – RE/DONE jeans. Ever since her eternal fiance, Jamie Mazur, started the brand, she has been wearing them constantly. Nothing wrong with supporting your own, right!

Personally, I do love the vintage idea of the RE/DONE jeans – they have partnered with Levi’s this last year. All of their jeans are made of old Levi’s. They find and buy them all over the world and then add patches, distress and rip them – no two pairs look alike.

And this is where I am having a hard time. To buy these jeans, you need to try on each single pair, there is no “general” sizing at all. A pair labeled as a size 29 can – in reality – be anything between a size 27 and a size 30. This sucks if you need to buy these jeans online. You might as well order a few pairs at the same time and then maybe you get lucky and find one that fits.

The best way to buy these jeans is actually to go to a store that carries them, like Barney’s, or Selfridges. And if you need to buy online, you should order at least two pairs of the same size!
