We hope you all had a wonderful new year and are off to a great start so far.
I distinctly recall about 10 years ago shopping in a small boutique along 3rd Street in LA and coming across a denim brand that was new to me. The jeans were one of the most perfect fitting cropped jeans, and I was smitten. The brand happened to be Level 99. And I was even more impressed by the price. Compared to most other premium designer denim prices, Level 99 is a bit more on the affordable side but isn’t at all compromising on the quality. Since then, Level 99 has become a pioneer in the industry, and has become favored by many celebrities including Charlize Theron, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Miranda Kerr just to name a few. Today’s review is on Level 99 Sarah Twisted Seam Tomboy Jeans.
I’m not sure if it’s my age or my current life stage, but squeezing into skinny jeans isn’t as appealing to me lately. So finding some great looser fitting or boyfriend style jeans has been on my radar lately. The fit on these jeans is more of a boyfriend style, so they’re extremely comfortable. The inseam is 25 inches, which give these a cropped fit that can either be rolled up or left as is. These are a 5 pocket style. The rear pockets have Level 99’s signature design on each pocket.
Made of 100% cotton, the denim is a bit on the thicker side, which works for the current cooler temperature. And there’s not much stretch to the material, although they feel looser for a comfortable fit. These run about a size large. But if you’re going for the really relaxed boyfriend look, then go ahead and take your normal size. The color is called Hansley, which is a dark blue that’s faded throughout and has some intentional dirty denim stains along the front thighs and knees. There are also small black oil looking stains along the front thighs. The rise is 8 ¾ inches. But since they have a looser fit, the waistband sits on the hips a bit. And the thighs have a relaxed fit as well, as boyfriend jeans typically do. The leg opening is 11 ½ inches. (Keep in mind there may be slight differences in measurements with different sizes.)
The front right belt loop and small coin pocket have a red and white stitch that stands out against the dark blue denim. If you roll up the hem, you’ll also see red along the inner side seam as well. I love small distinct characteristics like this. Another interesting detail about these is the twisted seams that twist towards the front.
Washing instructions are: Machine wash cold inside out, gentle cycle with similar colors, do not bleach, tumble dry low, iron with low heat.
