I finally got a chance to wear those jeans I bought last month. It’s been such a warm summer that I’ve been wearing cropped jeans and bermuda shorts up until now.
One problem with the jeans is that they are way too long for me – I ended up doing a quick hemming job this morning with safety pins. I’ll have to decide if I have the time and energy to hem them for real myself or to bring them to a tailor.
Other than the length, though, they fit very well and were quite comfortable all day. The main challenge I have with jeans is that I have hips that are a size larger than my waist, so I end up buying jeans for my hips, but then have a gaping waistline. I didn’t have that problem with these jeans, because they were designed for someone with my body type – hips a different size from waist. They didn’t end up stretching out during the day, as other jeans I’ve had do. And, frankly, they were rather comfy.
