Never say never

Skinny pants and my hips get along so poorly that I have just about given up on ever finding a pair that works (even a dog eventually stops going to the electric fence, right?) Still, something about this cropped twill pair seemed promising: they’re from J. Brand, a company whose jeans and chinos have always worked for me, and they’ve got some stretch, which never hurts. So I rolled the dice and placed an order, and am delighted to report that they fit so well my friend Stephen said they look like they were made for me, and does it get much better than that?

    I am hippy and I love a good skinny pant. The trick is to pair them with a tunic.

    have you tried Ecru pants? a few different cuts/fits and they fit amazingly! and wash and dry!

    these are very cute and i’m not saying i won’t succumb (i usually do) but my closet is so full of jbrands that i can’t justify another pair right now. and these are super tempting. and look just a wee bit different from the others (seriously i have an embarrassing number) so i am going away from your blog (for now). toodles!

  4. Thanks so much for sharing this great find, I’m always on the hunt for the perfect pair of black pants! I can’t seem to find the info on the website, do you know how long the inseam is on your pair?

    Anybody know how these differ from J Crew Minnies?

    The khaki pair pictured on the website seem to give the leggy model cankles, so I’ll pass.

    I can’t vouch for the J Brands, but I find that the J Crew Minnie’s show every single bump and lump. No dice for me!
