So you should know a couple of things about me right off the bat. I live in jeans all fall and winter, like every single day. And I will happily spend a fair amount of money on them if I find a pair that fit me really well, which after having four kids is no easy feat.
That’s why I’m really digging the new Jen7 jeans from 7 For All Mankind.
Now I’ve been a long time fan of 7 For All Mankind jeans. In fact, they are probably the first pair of higher-end jeans I ever purchased back before I had the major post-motherhood muffin top situation that either requires me to wear a flowy top all the time or a belt to keep them from falling off. What is up with that?
So you can bet I was very curious to try their new Jen7 jeans that they say are made for, well, people like me.
I’m generally hard to fit because although I have a pretty typical rise and more shapely figure (which I think is usually the easiest to fit for jeans), I’m tall–just under 6-feet–which can complicate matters unless I want to be wearing skimmers all winter. Bare ankle club FTW! But I have to say that I was surprisingly impressed with how perfectly the pair of Jen7 skinny jeans fit me–and not just because it was a size 8 (which is uh, not my usual size).
Awesome stretch, good length just above my ankle bone, and best of all, a rise that came just below my belly button, holding me in without making it feel like I was wearing high waisted pants. That would be bad.
Turns out I definitely agree with their claims that these could be your one, awesome ,wear-all-the-time pair of jeans, especially if you opt for the dark wash skinnies which are really easy to dress up or down.
Now I do wish they were a wee bit tighter around my ankles, which leads me to believe they might be aimed at women who are not super tall like me, but I rolled them up once and they worked perfectly with flats, and even booties. If you’re average height, I bet the 29-inch inseam makes them perfect for you.
Let’s be honest here, not everyone can drop almost $200 on a pair of jeans. I get it. Because yeah. $200. But if you wear jeans as often as I do and are as frustrated as I am at how often you find yourself tugging at them, pulling them up, or trying to find shirts that accommodate them, you’ll definitely want to give these a try. They stay put so well that I hardly know what to do with my hands.
Oh right. The kids.
