J Brand 811 Luxe Twill Mid-Rise Skinnies in Aubergine

Just when I thought I was starting to slow down on my colored denim obsession, J Brand came out with this Aubergine wash.  We recently did a review on their skinny cords in this same wash (see here).  J Brand made several different styles in Aubergine this season, and I can see why.  This color is gorgeous!  It’s a deep, dark, rich purple.  It’s more subtle of a color than their summer’s Bright Purple wash which we also did a review for in the 811 Twill Skinnies (see review).

These fit the same as J Brand’s summer season’s colored Twill Skinnies.  The fit is just as flattering, but because it’s a darker color it gives a more elongated look to the legs.  These are the classic 5 pocket style, although the front pockets are actually faux pockets.  There’s a zip fly, button enclosure.   I like the length on these (29 inch inseam).  It sits just above my ankle which is how I prefer to wear cropped skinnies.  These have a very skinny fit with a 10 ½ inch leg opening.  I’d say these run about a size small.  Although I took my normal size in these, I have to be honest in saying that I could barely breathe while taking these pictures.  They feel so extremely snug in my regular size.  The waistband is very tight on these.  While I prefer my skinnies to be as fitted as possible, I also believe in comfort.  So if you believe in being able to breathe while wearing your clothes, then I’d say to go up a size.  There isn’t a lot of stretch to this material.  They’re made from Japanese luxe twill, made of 98% cotton and 2% lycra.   They do stretch slightly after some wear but not much.  These are considered a comfortable mid-rise with an 8 inch rise and 13 inch backrise.

J Brand has a way of boldly standing out every season, whether it’s by their styles or their colors.  This season, they really nailed it with their colors.  If you’re not a fan of purple, I’d recommend trying out some of their other more earth-toned washes.  The Fall colors they created are beautiful.

Washing instructions are:  wash in cold with like colors, do not bleach, tumble dry low, warm iron if needed.  Be sure to take special care of your colored denim, especially since the Japanese luxe material tends to fade with each wash in my experience.
