If you’ve been following our blog, it’s probably pretty evident by now that we at StylePosts are fans of J Brand. I’m particularly fond of this cut, the 10” Skinnies. For one, I love that the inseam is shorter and I don’t need to get them altered. This particular pair has a 29 inch inseam. I also love the fit on the 10 inch skinny jeans. They’re very form fitting, which is precisely how I like to wear my skinny jeans.
The wash is called Super Dark, which is a very dark blue denim. I have to admit, I’ve had these jeans for quite some time now, so the color has faded after several washes. Yes, I admit, I did the forbidden according to denim 101 by machine washing this pair of jeans one too many times. Originally, the color was a very very dark blue, raw colored denim. And it bled quite a bit. I had to wash them a few times before the color stopped bleeding on the tops that I’d wear them with. Now, after several washes, they’re still a very dark blue. They also have a burnt orange colored contrast stitch. These were actually a limited edition pair. The difference with these from J Brand’s other classic 10” skinnies is on the rear pockets—they have two lines stitched across the middle of the pockets. Other than that, the fit is just as amazing as ever.
I took one size larger than my normal size in these. I’d say these run about a half a size to a full size small. If you’re in between sizes, I’d say to go up in size. Made of 98% cotton and 2% lycra, they do have a decent amount of stretch. But because they really cling to the entire leg, they run a bit on the smaller side. The rise is 7 inches.
Washing instructions are: wash in cold with like colors, tumble dry low, remove promptly, do not iron.
Some celebrity fans of J Brand’s 10” Skinnies are: Kristen Stewart, Katie Holmes, Cheryl Cole, Ashlee Simpson, Julianne Hough, Kristin Cavallari, Hillary Swank, and many more.
Because these were a special edition jean, they’re sold out in this color. But you can purchase them in their Pure wash which is a similar color. (Keep in mind that sizes vary according to different J Brand washes). Buy J Brand 10″ Skinny in Pure and many other colors at Revolve Clothing.
