straight leg jeans

After a few seasons of cropped and unfinished hem jeans, I feel that I am more than ready to go long again. Agreed, this is not yet a style I’d do right now with a temperature of almost 90 degrees. But – as probably a lot of you guys – I am already looking for new fall denim. Especially because I wouldn’t want to risk them selling out in my size….been there, done that, and it’s hyper-frustrating.

Helmut Lang has just the style I was looking for. I mean, when I talk about long inseam jeans, they gotta be LONG. Uber-long. Just regular inseam is so meh. And Helmut’s Masc Hi Straight Leg Jeans fit the bill to perfection. With an inseam of about 35″ and the slim straight leg, the crunching at the ankles will be perfect. As opposed to when trying to achieve the same look with a wider leg. The effect would be a bulging that is anything but cool and edgy.

Also, the long inseam could help me to finally – FINALLY – to ditch my eternal sneakers and make me feel like wearing some heels again. When was the last time I shopped for some heels instead of sneakers, right!

But – and here comes my “sneaker excuse” again: these jeans can also be worn with flats or sneakers, if you cuff them up just once in a wide cuff, which is also something I am currently obsessing with. Okay, bye-bye good intentions. My new heels will just have to wait!

Check out some more Helmut Lang jeans here and here – see how all of them come with a longer inseam…. jut saying 😉
