There are now well over a hundred luxury denim lines, here is how many of them fit and how you can decipher the j brand jeans, sizing and rises.
Get in your perfect pair!
First, Most of the lines below are sized 24 to 32. Occasionally very small and plus sizes are available in high end j brand jeans so ask you retailer to search for you if you have a special size request.
Many tiny or plus size celebrities have custom-made j brand jeans from labels you and I normally would buy from which may not be available to the everyday buyer.
Second, when in doubt about fit or a too long inseam, get a tailor, the results are usually wonderful.
Third, “Stretch Blends” j brand jeans with stretch will fit more generously, but as higher quality brands use stronger types of stretch the give will not be as great as the lower end ‘shopping mall stretch’ j brand jeans (which should be avoided by anyone over 12.) Rigid denim (100% cotton) will eventually conform to your body, last much longer and run smaller.
Fourth, if you favor jeans with stretch be sure to buy a few high quality pairs, size down and rotate wearing them so they retain their stretch.
Fifth, “True to size” What does it mean? The majority of the time a size 30 is equivalent to a size 9/10 dress. Despite a return to some higher-waisted styles, most j brand jeans still hit at the low waist with the average rise (distance from the center crotch to the top of the waist band) being 7 to 9 inches (17.8 to 22.9 cm), thus the waist on a size 30 is measuring 33 to 35 inches (83.8 to 88.9 cm) NOT 30.
Have a nice try!
