If you're interested about how that's going, read on. For context, read the thread below.


I was ranting about denim fabric being too soft, thin and stretchy as I replenish my own denim capsule this year. Unlike ALL my clients, I like classic, hard, thick denim sans stretch with a low front rise (6 to 7 inches), tapered leg, full length with scrunch, and not skin-tight.

Here is the shopping update:

Madewell, Gap, Banana Republic, Club Monaco - all too soft and high rise

Nordstrom - too soft and high rise no matter how premium I go.

Barneys - even tried the mens dept. Found the right fabric - ACNE and A.P.C - but the rises were again too high.

Shopbop - ordered 6 styles. All too soft and the rise too high. Lengths too short.

Levis - fabric was better, but again the rises too high.

J.Crew - fits are a 9 not a 10. A little soft but not too bad.

H&M - perfect fabric and length! NO stretch!!! But rise was too low and slouchy. Not what I am looking for.

Have the True Religion Camerons on order, and 5 Euro styles from yoox.com on order all with very low rises (including Diesel).

Managed to find my replacement white jeans in a nano second from Bloomies. They are AG and the link is below. Tailored skinnies. Not too soft and stretchy. Rise is borderline okay at 7.25 inches.


Am not frustrated at all. Just finding the hunt interesting. I have all the patience in the world to find what I want.
