I’ve been into comfort lately when it comes to my denim. And my wardrobe as of late has consisted more of casual pieces. I seem to wear styles in droves, usually the themes following whatever my lifestyle of the moment is. My days lately have required clothing that is comfortable, quick, and easy to wear, so it’s probably easy to guess what attracted me to these jeans. These are Joe’s Easy Fit Cropped Jeans. We did a review on this cut in the Georgie wash (see review here).
The wash is called Deedi, which is what really drew me to this particular pair. I usually prefer darker washes, but I love how these look so casual and vintage. And I really like the way these have been destroyed. The color is a medium to light blue denim with fading and distress throughout the jeans, particularly in the knees, front pockets, and waistline. The hem is also frayed, giving these a more edgy look. I like the cropped fit on these (29 inch inseam uncuffed), but I needed to cuff them for a real cropped and casual effect. But I didn’t want to lose the look of the frayed hem, so I decided to cuff them in a way as to leave the frayed hem showing, giving these a 25 inch inseam when cuffed.
These are made of 99% cotton and 1% elastan, making these a slightly more rigid feeling denim. There’s not a whole lot of elasticity to the material, but they do stretch out a bit with wear. I’d say these run almost a size large. But being that they’re meant to fit in a more relaxed way, I went with my normal size which is a little loose but feels fine to me for this style.
The rise is 8 ½ inches, making these more of a mid rise. Leg opening is 11 inches. (Keep in mind that measurements may vary slightly according to size).
Washing instructions are: machine wash cold inside out with like colors, hang dry, cool iron if necessary.
