There are lots of denim addicted ladies out there who, besides premium denim jeans, definitely love selvedge denim. And following up with our selvedge post at the beginning of this year – a huge success, btw – we needed to find some new styles available to buy right now.
The sad news is that there are not really a lot of choices for women’s selvedge jeans out there, not even close to what’s available for the guys. And not even in stretch selvedge denim which would be perfect for skinny jeans loving women.
So this is the reason why lots of us women have to opt for the men’s selvedge. Personally, I am going that way most of the time. Not only because of lack of options for women, but also because I love the fit and style of men’s selvedge better anyway.
For sizing: You should go up two sizes from your usual women’s size. I am a regular size 28/29 (depending on style and amount of stretch) in women’s and the men’s 32/33 are always the best fit (also depending on the elastane).
