rigid jeans

Fall is approaching (so, what else is new, meh), and we have been preaching about ditching all those overly distressed and ripped jeans. They had their turn in summer time, but moving forward, we’re supposed to get into a more somber fall and winter denim-mood.

Easy said, right, but so hard to do! I hear you, yes, I am still kind of always finding myself reaching for my destroyed babies, the more ripped and distressed, the better.

But let’s be realistic. At least here in New York, it will get cold and windy again pretty soon, and then no way we can wear jeans with all those holes and rips.

Enter Edwin, the Rachel Classic Fit Jean. These are in the “mandatory” darker wash, with “mandatory” (almost) no distressing, and (still) feature frayed and unfinished hems. So the transition from super distressed to (almost) non-distressed is easier to face. Especially, since this is a cropped straight leg style which is so totally overtaking the stretchy skinny jeans.

Yes, these jeans are made of 100% cotton Japanese denim, another must-do right now, and the wash is kind of reminiscent of vintage jeans. And vintage, or re-purposed jeans, are going stronger than ever.

And if you have the guts to go from light blue ripped and distressed straight to raw and no distress AT ALL, Edwin also does this same style in a dark indigo wash (last image below).

I sincerely hope that this post makes the transition from summer to fall denim a bit easier for all of you ripped jeans addicts!
