In an attempt to try a new denim style, I ordered these Current/Elliot jeans Angie recommended recently. I didn't have high hopes for them (Angie's notes included a comment that there is not a lot of room in the thighs), but I thought no harm in trying, right?

Well, to my surprise, they're not bad. I wish the wash was maybe a bit more uniform to avoid that light patch on my thighs, but I think that is less obvious IRL than in the low light of these photos. The fit is actually pretty good. A little big in the waist, but that's typical.

I've thrown on a bunch of different shoes with them here. I don't wear jeans much in the heat of the summer, so these would have to transition into fall and spring stylings.

What do you think? Worth keeping? Are they JFE? I know I don't have the easiest body type to make these work, but they do appeal to me. They're on a good sale, so not a big investment for a trendy item. But will they be trending well into next year too? My guess is yes, but I welcome all opinions.
