Why: I love jeans. In fact, I probably more than love them. I won’t admit to how many are in my closet, but I will tell you that I wear them all regularly. How? Once I find a brand or cut that’s perfect, I buy a pair in every wash and sometimes even two of the same color. Crazy, I know, but it works. This weekend I went on a bit of a denim binge, so as a sort of penance for blowing my budget I am sharing my find: James Tom 5 Pocket Straight Leg Jeans in Poison
I was first introduced to James Jeans back 2004 and the pleated pockets and flattering fit immediately hooked me. What I didn’t know then was that there was some science to it – the angled pocket and slight distressing trick the eye so your tush and thighs look totally toned. What’s not to love?
As if it could get any better, the latest James collection features jeans with this psychic spandex called T400. Now I never used to wear jeans with stretch in them because they always lost their shape the minute I crossed my legs or sat down. But I now own three pairs – all made with T400 – because somehow this fabric molds to your shape when you first put the jeans on and retains that shape wear after wear. I was skeptical at first, too, but after three days in these jeans I can honestly attest that they’re pretty amazing. No saggy butt, no gaping at the knee, nothing.
I happen to be fond of the dark straight legs because I think they’re the most versatile and polished, but there are several other options. Check out the entire collection here.
Ah, there — all my guilt is gone.
