Buy it: Earnest Sewn jeans
I have been looking for a pair of gray skinny (or straight) jeans for what seems like forever. I feel like last year they were everywhere, but now everything is dark rinse or black--am I nine months late to the trend? Anyway, while I was in State College, PA, last weekend, of all places, I happened upon the best sale rack ever, which had all manner of gray, black, and dark-rinse skinny and straight-leg jeans (clearly skinnies didn't go over so well in Central Pennsylvania). I tried on J Brand (which still don't fit me), Habitual (which I liked a lot, but were actually more of a boot-cut), and Earnest Sewn, which I had tried before, but, miraculously, all of a sudden, fit me beautifully. The pair I ended up getting is the Decca, which is a straight-leg (the much-hyped Harlan is a true skinny). They are incredibly flattering, not ass-tight, and are so soft, they feel like I've owned them for years. Of course, I wish I had known this a few weeks ago, when Earnest Sewn had their sample sale. Well, there's always next time. In the meantime, eLuxury has a few Deccas on markdown here and here. Revolve Clothing also has some here. So, I eat my words and hereby endorse Earnest Sewn. In fact, I am so enamored with my new jeans, I might even try the Harlan again. Wish me luck, girls.
