Siwy’s been popular with almost every denim fashionista for ages, and – just recently – Jimmy Taverniti, one of the big denim icons of today, has been brought in to design and develop all denim for the brand. Remember, Taverniti So Jeans and D-ID, among many others. So we asked Jimmy to tell us about his vision for the Siwy back pockets, and here is what he says:
“The back pockets, as a result of their shape and positioning, are an essential part of the fit of any jeans. Large pockets emphasize rounder buttocks. While on the other hand, smaller pockets give a greater sense of volume and therefore are more flattering to smaller buttocks. The design goal for good back pockets then consists of finding the right size to flatter all types of buttocks. Therefore, The Jimmy has slightly larger pockets, reminiscent of early jeans.
The placement of the back pockets is also a critical factor. If the pockets are too far apart, they make the buttocks look wider and flatter. Therefore, the back pockets need to be correctly centered to properly enhance the buttocks.
And lastly, the back pockets need to be sufficiently high so as to give the illusion of longer legs.”
If you look at the images here you can see several different styles and how the back pockets look on the skinnies, high waisted and boyfriend jeans. You can click on the name underneath each image if you love and want to buy.
