Stomping through Topshop the other week, I stopped before a pair of washed black Baxter jeans.
I don't do solid black - that would be too neat and clean looking but washed black - yes please! And with no knee rips which is a bonus for me. After too many years of jeans going at the knees - I'm quite liking keeping my knees covered. I bobbed in the changing rooms with them, tried them on, came out and bought them. I'm making jeans buying sound easy aren't I? But it wasn't quite as easy as that. I did take two sizes in and I tried both pairs on twice and I also did some Sumo squats in them for a couple of minutes in the changing room just to test them out for comfort and give before I made my decision. You do that too right?
And I'm quite tickled with the reviews online and how everyone doesn't like them and declares them too short and that they are totally different from the Baxters of old. Well I have to say, I'm glad they've changed them because now I luurrrve them as they're perfect for me! They have turned out to be the perfect full length skinny not too skinny jean for me and I've worn them non stop since I got them. Whoop whoop. And shall we throw a fist bump in there too? ;o)
Last Note :
- I bought mine in size 28 waist, 30 length for the perfect full length jean on me. I am 5ft 1.5inches with short legs (gah!) and a size 10 in most things. Any taller than me and these would be an ankle grazer ... which is what I think they should be. Basically order longer than what you would normally.
