I think it’s pretty obvious by now that Current/Elliott is a favored brand of mine.  I have to share that it’s this specific pair of jeans that really sold me to their brand.  I’d been a fan of Current/Elliott for some time before I purchased these jeans.   But to be honest, I always felt that their styles ran a little big and didn’t quite fit me exactly the way I’d liked…that is, until I found these.  These are Current Elliott’s Cropped Leggings.  I was used to Current/Elliott’s jeans running a little on the larger side, but these fit like a glove!  Made of 75% cotton and 25% polyester, they have a very firm fit that clings right to the leg.  The material has a slight amount of stretch, but not too much where the jeans feel stretched out over time with wear.  These run true to size.  When I say true to size, I mean true to standard designer sizes, but they run smaller than Current/Elliott skinny jeans typically run.

The color is called Blue Bird, which is a dark blue wash with some fading in the thighs, knees, and rear.  There is also some whiskering in the front.  I really love the color on these jeans.  I’d have to say they are probably one of my favorite washes of all time.  I am a fan of dark wash jeans, but I also like some slight fading in the wash.  These are exactly that.   These are a 5 pocket style with the front pockets having more of a straight edge.

I also like that I don’t need to get these hemmed.  The inseam is 28 ½ inches, which is meant to be a cropped fit.  But for me, they fit right at my ankles, which works just as well for me.  They also have a long 11 inch copper colored side zipper on each outer side.  I like wearing these with the zipper partially opened sometimes.  The rise measurement is 7 inches.  The leg opening with the zipper closed is 9 inches.

Washing instructions are: wash in cold, tumble dry medium, use low iron.

These jeans have been seen on Rihanna, Charlize Theron, and Rachel Bilson.

These jeans have been sold out for some time, but you can find their Zig Zag Leggings in this same Blue Bird wash.  Buy Current/Elliott bluebird wash ‘The Zig-Zag Legging’ jeans at Bluefly.

    Hi Susan!

    What a great blog you have! I have found your reviews extremely helpful for my online denim purchases 🙂

    However, I am looking at my first pair of Current/Elliott jeans and I am struggling to find a helpful source. I see you have reviewed Paige denim and 7FAM. Compared with these two brands, how would you say Current/Elliotts run? True to size compared to each brand or larger/smaller?

    I would appreciate any help you could provide.

    Thank you again for such a great blog/denim resource! 🙂

      Hi Jess.
      Current/Elliott runs a bit larger than Paige Denim typically runs. But compared to 7 FAM, it’s somewhat comparable. Of course, it all varies from wash to wash, but this is generally speaking. If you know which wash in particular you are thinking of purchases, let us know. I might be able to give you a more definitive answer then. Thanks for your comment! 🙂
