Okay, call us selfish, but we really wanted the founder of a jeans brand to tell us how to buy the right pair of jeans. So here goes.
“Leg openings are incredibly crucial. If you’re still in the same style jeans that you bought 10 years ago, your leg opening is about 16-17 inches. Today if I were to go out and buy, I’d say go out and wear 15-16 inches. Wear it for a day or two. You want to get to the point where it doesn’t remind you it’s on. Fit isn’t whether you can get it on or not, fit is how it makes you feel.”
“Take it slowly — don’t follow the pendulum swings of trends. Just step outside of your comfort zone and put something on that’s going to be a little bit more forward and wear it for a couple of days around your house. And your body starts to feel it and enjoy it. And buy a nice pair of boots too!”
