I don’t think there’s anything better than finding the perfect pair of denims. Since I was young I’ve always loved good denim, and have always worn brands that wear well like Diesel, Levi & ‘Miss Sixty’ (can you guess my age lol?) compared to high street brands.
The past few years I’ve had this obsession with finding the perfect pair of vintage 501s but no matter what they were never right. Either they were too baggy on the waist, too bleached, or too wide on the leg. Even the new style 501s that I bought, or the 501 skinny, they were too high waisted and not the look I wanted.
So finally after years of lusting over Redone denim I took the plunge and bought a pair, and I can hand on heart tell you it is the best money you will ever spend on denim. So if you have been considering it – do it! They fit perfect, the colour is perfect, they have the right amount of crop and not to mention a lifetime repair guarantee, but maybe I should expect that for an almost £300 pair of denims? All in all, they are totally worth it to me and because most of the styles are timeless (isn’t all denim though?) they will last forever, or as long as i’m still a 24″ waist … Another thing I love about them is how perfect they fit my waist and my legs, the main reason I struggle with high street denim.
I do know, however, that they are expensive so I wanted to share some tips on how I shop for mine. Firstly, look on Shopbop, because they often do amazing sales in which they are included and even with customs mine were cheaper than buying from the UK. Second, they sell on sites like Net-a-Porter, Revolve, Farfetched etc. so always look out for discount codes there like currently Net-a-Porter has 15% off your order by using code FWFASHIONFIX15. Finally, always check sites like Vestiaire Collective and eBay, I have seen loads on both and they look in great condition so it’s always worth looking.
I hope this helps – have a wonderful weekend!
