Buy it
In the past, I've extolled the virtues of both True Religion jeans and, more recently, skinny jeans. And we all know that skinny jeans are currently the big thing in denim. (In case you didn't know, WWD recently ran a front-page story about how retailers are blowing out of the skinny jeans, pushing boot-cut and flares to the back of the store.) The ubiquituous Joey jean from True Religion (the flare-leg with curved side seams and button-flap back pockets), however, tends to be flattering only if you're super-skinny, or at least if you have narrow hips and relatively slim thighs. Now, call me crazy, but I think TR's new Billy jean is going to be more flattering on more body types. Plus, I love the dark rinse--I was not a fan of those jeans with all the rips and tears. At $171, they're a bit pricey, but you all know my theory on denim: You wear it more than anything else in your closet, so why not splurge? Tempting, no?
