#IsItReallyTooMuchToAsk for denim that is fitted and tight but doesn’t stretch out? If DL 1961 can make denim this way, so can other brands! Find out why DL 1961 is my go to brand for denim.
Let us all admit that if we easily found the perfect pair of jeans for our body type, we would probably pay a lot of money for multiple pairs. That being said, DL 1961 is both the perfect fit for me (and probably you) and is also quite reasonably priced compared to other premium denim brands. Other brands such as 7 for all Mankind and Paige Denim have been around for quite some time now, but are loosing steam to the more contemporary, youthful brands such as J Brand, rag & bone and now even DL 1961. Let’s not even begin to discuss the death of Rock & Republic or the slow fate that awaits True Religion.
Don’t get me wrong, I love J Brand, rag & bone and could never part with my denim relationship with 7FAM but with prices around $150, DL 1961 carries a variety of cuts and washes that can appeal to even the most diverse denim connoisseur. Typically quite fitted but true to standard denim sizing, their fabric features XFIT LYCRA which gives their denim stretch and movement without becoming too baggy or stretched out after a few hours. Even after a week, the jeans stay perfectly in shape and remain looking freshly washed. The jeans are almost like a hybrid of denim, jeggings and knit leggings; combining the qualities of all three into one perfect pair of jeans. While sometimes I have issues with back pockets being too high and small for my derriere (rag & bone, some J Brand, AG and Paige denim) DL 1961′s back pockets not only fit me at the correct placement, they accentuate and contour perfectly!
Of course, with denim, every girl and woman must try them on herself to really understand the fit for her own shape. I encourage everyone go to a store that carries DL 1961 and see for yourself the magic that will happen. I know for me, when I shop for jeans now, I always look fondly at DL 1961 because I know I’m going to get a great fitting, fairly priced pair of jeans. Stores that I have seen carry DL 1961 are Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom (few but better than nothing), Saks Fifth Avenue, Amazon.com, ShopBop.com and of course DL1961.com.
