There’s something about a good pair of jeans. It could be the fit, form or function. It could be the style. It could be the fact that wearing them can at times feel like a second skin. There are so many variables that come into play when jeans are the topic at hand. What distinguishes a $300 pair of designer jeans from a $60 pair at the Gap?
Is there really a difference?
That well worn look, the sandblast, the deep indigo, the bootcut – there is such a wide array of jeans that sifting through them to find the right one can be a nightmare. What you’ll find at the end of the day is that your favorite pair of jeans, no matter how comfortable, will need to be replaced.
Fall is a great time for the replacement game. Designers roll out every single concept to let you know that their jeans are significantly different from all the other jeans on the market. The question is, are they?
Papierdoll took the denim companies to task. We sifted through all types of shapes, sizes and colors. We begged and pleaded for more denim from the usual suspects. Some cheerfully offered, some never responded back. The tests had to go on and go on they did. While we covered a broad range of denim, these tests are by no means the be-all end-all.
Finding the right pair of jeans might be as simple as walking into a store and picking out your size and style and walking away (we automatically assume you will pay).
For most other cases that elusive pair of perfect jeans may be as hard as not finding a reference to Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie in a supermarket rag.
Where and when do we begin with the denim feature? Tomorrow. Papierdoll’s diverse staff of writers will break down all you need to know about the perfect (and not-so-perfect) pair of jeans. Throughout the month of August, we will (hopefully) enlighten, entertain and perhaps educate. Perhaps not. Whatever the case, the denim feature starts on Tuesday.
Tune in tomorrow for more!
