Well….I’m Baaack! For those of you who have followed us since last year, you know that I welcomed a beautiful little girl into my family recently. Thanks Susan for doing so much while I spent time cooing over my new little one.
So for my first review back, what else would I review other than a pair of True Religion Brand Jeans (TRBJ). For those that know me, True Religion Brand Jeans are a favorite of mine. Today, we have True Religion’s Brianna Pony Express Boyfriend in a wash called Duster. I selected this jean because I enjoy a nice comfortable boyfriend jean and what these retail for; I just needed to know more. At first sight, these reminded me of the True Religions Cameron Boyfriend jeans that I reviewed last year (TRBJ Camerons in Wyoming). Unfortunately, after some wear and getting use to the Brianna jeans, I prefer the Cameron jeans a little bit better. I feel like the Cameron’s have more detail that I could appreciate paying the premium price for.
What do I like about TRBJ Brianna? I like that this jean has extensive whiskering throughout. The whiskering is beautiful. I like that this wash has a hint of the dirty denim look, which I love but can never seem to keep after a few washes. (If someone knows how to keep the dirty denim wash true after washing, please share. I’d love to know.) This jean also has a three-button fly that I prefer when it comes to my denim. I love the rawhide patch label on the back. I love how True Religion uses different patches on their jeans. I don’t know why I like them. Maybe it is because it just adds to the details that I love about TRBJ. I love the look of cropped jeans and this one is no exception. I appreciate that TRBJs come cuffed but also allow you to uncuff them if you prefer. And finally, I like that these are true to size.
What do I not care for about this jean? It’s a thicker denim. I like that over time this jean will soften and really fit custom to my body, but I like my jeans to fit perfect upon first wear. This jean has the iconic ‘U’ on the back pockets that we are all familiar with but the design on this pocket is slightly different. The ‘U’ is slightly wider. And I prefer nothing wide on my backside 😉 One detail that makes this pair of denim different is that they have some whimsical designs right below the front pockets on each side. It’s interesting but really I don’t think it’s necessary.
Overall, I do like these jeans, but for the price, I feel like there are other alternatives for a lower price that can give a similar look. For those of you, who don’t mind the price and are die hard TRBJ fans, you can buy True Religion Brianna Boyfriend Denim in Duster at REVOLVEClothing.com! Enjoy 🙂
