Frankie B Carpenter Trouser Famous Boot Cut Jeans in Opium

Every so often, I find a pair of jeans that place me over the moon, and they become my “flavor of the month.”  I am pleased to present to you my current flavor of the month, Frankie B’s Carpenter Trouser Famous Boot Cut jeans.  These are part of Frankie B’s Fall 2011 collection, which we recently did a feature on (see here).  There are so many things that I love about these jeans.

I’ll begin with the cut.  These are considered a boot cut, but I’d definitely consider them more of a flare style since they have a 22 inch leg opening.  They’re fitted throughout the leg until they hit 16 inches down the inseam into a wide leg opening.  These jeans are so flattering and really make the legs appear longer.  The rise is 7 inches with an 11 inch back rise.  Made of 98% cotton and 2% spandex, these jeans have a lot of stretch, making them very comfortable to wear.  Although they’re fitted throughout the thighs, I’d say these run about a half size large because of the stretch, especially in the waistline.  What I can really appreciate about Frankie B is their consistency in sizes.  Most of their jeans run about the same in regards to size, which makes purchasing online a lot easier to do once you know what size you typically are in Frankie B jeans.

The wash is called Opium which is a dark blue wash with some light fading.  There’s also heavy distressing along the right leg and slight distressing on the left.  There is no reinforcement behind the destroyed areas, so be careful not to snag the thread.  I haven’t had any issues with the holes becoming larger so far.  The holes are placed along the thigh area, so there aren’t any issues of them tearing with movement.

The front pockets are patch pockets, adding something a little different than the usual 5 pocket styles.  There is a brick red contrast stitching along the belt loops, which is a nice little detail.  I like how the color of the stitch contrasts against the dark blue denim.  And the rear pockets are placed nice and low, giving the rear a lift.  Frankie B has mastered the art of butt-lifting in their denim.

The bottom has a thicker hem of 1 ¼ inches, allowing the flare leg to really stand out.  The inseam is 33 ½ inches long.

The washing instructions are:  Dry clean or wash in cold, do not bleach, tumble dry low & remove promptly.
