Imogene + Willie sale


Imogene+Willie is having a sale on black and slate colored denim. I'm going to order the Imogenes in Slate since they're only $50 and there's free shipping today. I've never tried them on, so I'm a little iffy on sizing. I'm usually a 26 or 27 depending on the cut. I think I've reached a point in my life where a higher rise is more comfortable, so hopefully the Imogenes will do the trick. Eventually I'd like a pair in indigo and maybe black. Right now my denim pile consists of a pair of Anthropologie Pilcros (26), which have a higher rise but the leg twists around, Current-Elliott boyfriends for weekends (25), accidentally pink-stained Surface to Air boyfriends in a light wash (27), and navy AG skinnies that are too low waisted (26). Based on Imogene+Willie's sizing guide, it looks like a 26 should fit. I'm having them sent to CA, so it will be awhile before they arrive.

I have a pair of jeans with a leg that twists too. Thank goodness none of my other jeans do it as I was starting to think it was my leg! I reckon they cut it off-grain as a mistake or to save fabric.

For a knockabout pair of jeans I have numerous pairs of Cheap Monday's Tight Skinny - they have a great rise (I don't fancy low rise either) and they're not 'painted on' skinny.

This is the first time I've experienced the twist, and it drives me nuts!

I haven't tried Cheap Monday's yet, it's reassuring to hear they have a higher rise as well.

Gap's skinny 1969 leggings jeans are pretty amazing and cheap (so it doesn't matter if Severin spits his lunch on them or throws food at me). I loved their maternity leggings jeans and transitioned over to Gap leggings jeans after that.

Thanks for the tip moya, I might be able to check them out this weekend!

I've been quite pleased with Uniqlo's ultra stretch, midrise ankle length jeans. But definitely size DOWN!

I would love to hear how you found the sizing whenever you get them. I have a pair of Uniqlo jeans that I pretty much wear non-stop. They are sort of a mid-rise, which I prefer. I think a slightly higher waist is more flattering on my body. Oh and I agree with joyce about sizing down in Uniqlo. They run very large. I think I'm the same size as you and generally wear 26, but Uniqlo I wear 25 (sometimes even 24). Also, I definitely experience the leg twists! Usually it's on a skinny pair of jeans that have just come out of the dryer. ;)

I standardized on skinny and matchstick (straight &narrow in factory naming) at J. Crew
I find the midrise skinny to flattering for a higher rise. It is partially by desire for a uniform and partially because the fit is good enough that with weight fluctuation I can move up and down a size without worrying too much about the cost. I wear a 27 in the skinny but a 26 in straight leg. The 27 is a bit roomy. these days and the 26 a bit snug.

Erica,
I apologize if this sounds weird but I actually ordered the Imogene slim slate a while ago and I sized according to an older pair of their's not their website and unfortunately, the fit is not right for me. I'm super bummed because I figured it would be the same because the name is exactly the same as my older pair.

It's sized 27. They're sitting around my house not getting much use at the moment. I also did hemmed off a few inches for my short self before I really realized. Theyre in basically new condition. If you have any use for a nearly new $200 hemmed pair of jeans, let me know, I'd be happy to send it your way.

Hi K

I didn't see your comment until now. Do you have the measurements for these? I think I'm a solid 27 except in jeans that run large.

I would definitely be interested in them!
