Jeans Love With Jeanography
I haven’t owned a pair of jeans in a mighty long time. At one time, I seemed to own a zillion pairs, but then my style evolved to dresses and an extensive Wolford tights collection. Jeans also seem to be stupidly hard to buy. Finding the right fit is like the holy grail. I used to hate the process of jean shopping, having to try on a ton of pairs. So it just seemed easier to not own any. But then I realised, a good pair of jeans is actually a pretty important wardrobe staple. So the search recommenced.
Luckily, Jeanography got in touch with me and made the process a whole lot easier.
Jeanography have a service called ‘Fit First Time’. You pick three pairs of jeans you like from the site. They also have an expert on hand who can give you advice. I picked my three pairs and she called me to talk through them, what my body type is like, see exactly the type of fit I like and what would work best for me. She made some suggestions and I swapped out one of my choices for hers.
They then sent me those three pairs to try at home. You get to keep them for seven days and then send back the two pairs you don’t want. This was soooo much nicer than trekking around endless shops trying to find the right ones. I was also able to try them on with different things from my own wardrobe to find out which pair would really work with what I already have.
I tried a pair of James Jeans Hunter straight leg jeans in black and a pair of MiH Jeans Bonn Super Skinny in 42 Red but ended up going with this pair of James Jeans shown above (the Twiggy Mid Rise in Sienna Slate). I hadn’t heard of the brand before, but I really like the cut and the way they fit. I’m also really digging the colour. I’m not really a fan of standard denim and black just seemed a little boring. I’m managing to work this colour with a lot.
So if you’re looking to take the stress out of jean shopping and be able to do it from the comfort of your own home, I’d definitely recommend giving Jeanography a go. Easy, hassle free service – winner!
