Zippers, zippers, and more zippers…similar to the J Brand Houlihans that we reviewed as one of our posts, this one is just as impressive.  These are J Brand’s Scout Low Rise Military Zip in Vintage Fawn.  Vintage Fawn looks very similar to the Vintage Olive Houlihans that we reviewed but in person, there is a slight difference in shade of green.  Both are beautiful shades.

What’s even more noteworthy than the soft and velvety color is the cut.  These are skinny jeans with a shorter inseam.  These are meant to be worn above the ankle, which makes it perfect to pair with sexy heels or sandals.  And for those of you who simply can’t wait to wear your jeans the minute it arrives, this is great because you don’t have to wait for the tailor to hem them.  On the outside of each leg is a 6”zipper from the hem.  This is a great little detail that draws the eye to the skinniest part of your leg.   Now instead of having side cargo pockets as in the Houlihans, the pockets have been moved up to the front waist.  These front squared pockets are great at creating a smooth flat front.  And again, it’s great detail if you are wearing a shorter top with the jeans that draws the eyes.  The back pockets are rear enhancing flap pockets.  And this is your standard button and zip fly.

These jeans are made from 7.5 ounce luxe Japanese twill, and it is luxe.  It is strong and durable cotton.  Initial wear is a little snug but over time it will stretch ever so slightly.  Since these jeans run true to size, I recommend getting your normal size.

Our model, Karen, tried on her first pair of J Brands and she immediately loved how it looked on her.  Her only complaint was the look of the rear.  With Karen being a petite woman, she focuses on two areas when shopping for jeans – the rear and the length.  The rear on these jeans are less detailed than the flap pockets that she normally buys.  Hence, she wasn’t too keen on the look of the rear from her full length mirror at home.  This is a complete deal breaker for her in terms of jeans.  But other than the rear, if the length is right, then all else usually fits Karen like a glove.  She is evenly proportioned and many things fit her well, aside from length.  But after seeing her photos in these jeans, she was pleasantly surprised to see how well these actually fit her.  She is now a fan of these jeans and can’t wait to wear them again.

I often think that we ladies are just too hard on ourselves and have trained our eyes to not really see ourselves the way others see us.  Seeing herself through the eyes of someone else in photos helped Karen to realize that these jeans are stunning on her and the rear is nothing like what her eyes saw in the full length mirror in her home.    We think you’ll agree as well.
