Receiving gifts from anyone always leaves me feeling gushy. I’m particularly touched when the gift is something that is just so totally me. That is exactly what these jeans are. These were a gift from my sister, and I absolutely love them. These are Current/Elliott Stiletto Jeans in Voyage. I realize we’ve done several different reviews on Current/Elliott Stiletto Jeans. But each of the different washes has quite a different fit.
This pair in particular is made of 75% cotton and 25% polyester, and they have a decent amount of stretch and elasticity. Initially, they felt pretty snug. But after wearing them, even just after 10 minutes, they stretched out quite a bit and felt very comfortable. I love the feel of many of Current/Elliott’s jeans because their denim is so soft and feels very worn in. Although these felt snug initially, they did stretch out quite a bit, leaving these running about a half size large. So if you’re in between sizes, I’d suggest going down in size especially if you want them to fit like body hugging skinnies.
The rise is at a comfortable 7 ½ inches. I love the length of the Stiletto Jean because it fits just above my ankles (27 inch inseam). These are supposed to fit tight like skinnies, although I’d say they are fairly relaxed and comfortable on the thighs and calves compared to Current/Elliott’s more recent Stiletto style jeans which fit a lot tighter. The leg opening is 10 inches.
The wash is called Voyage which is a beautiful dark blue wash with the perfect amount of fading throughout the thighs, knees and rear, and whiskering along the front. I’d seen this wash in one of Current/Elliott’s bell style jeans a few months ago, which I considered purchasing. But I refrained because I wished they had them in a skinny style jean instead. So I was so excited when I received these jeans.
Washing instructions are: Machine wash cold, tumble dry low heat, iron low heat.
