You are so right. I think that's their secret. 1) Product placement 2) Styling. I have seen these jeans modeled at several stores online such as Revolve, Chickdowntown, Neiman Marcus, etc. and at some of these stores, I'm like and at other places (like Chickdowntown), they look GREAT.

We stocked them at the boutique I used to work at and personally, I think they only work for certain people. For those people, the price is great. But for others, I think a $80 pair of A&F jeans would be MUCH more flattering and fashionable.

I dont know...when I tried them on they are so lightweight that I almost put my foot through the ripped knee hole and heard the threads start to shread fairly easiy if I wasnt careful I would have turned them into trashed jeans. I would say frail is accurate, japanese denim or not.

It's good to know that the demin is very soft and gives in. I'm just not happy with rigid denim.

When I first saw them I wasn't sure if they are worth the money mainly for the reason that I was afraid that they might look dated. It's not too long ago that splattered and ripped jeans were in style. I still have a Paper Denim pair that is in that style but I don't feel like wearing it anymore. I do hope that I'll get more wear our of these (if I get them). I also agree that there's something that sets them apart from the typical A&F or AE jeans but I'm not sure if it's the shape or cut.

^The cut is phenomenal - I think that is what sets them apart. I must add, though, that today I put my foot through the rip at the knee putting them on, and now the hole is somewhat bigger. I like the destruction aspect, though. I think I like them even more now - now they are personal!

Now I'm really intrigued and can't wait to get a pair. Hopefully the 25 will fit me. Thanks for your input.

I saw those skirts on revolveclothing and was actually thinking about ordering the black one too (as I have a coupon code). Please let me know how it fits and how you like it when you receive it.

^Will do. But I won't be receiving it until mid-November. I wish I had known it was in stock elsewhere so I could get it sooner. I would expect it fits amazing, though.

I think Current/Elliott gifted the heck out of all the female celebrities with their boyfriend style - we have seen a ton of celebs wearing them lately. Personally I still can't get on board with the boyfriend style, they are just not flattering to a woman's figure to me - but I do like their other denim cuts and other clothing items. Those skirts are really nice. If I am going to wear a boyfriend jean, its going to be Paige Premium's new boyfriend jean which is a little more tapered and fitted than the super baggy ones from Current/Elliott....

Velony, the fit is PHENOMENAL. I have never owned a pencil skirt with such a great proportion of fit and stretch, and just like the jeans, it is SO comfortable. I would highly recommend any of their styles at this point.

Thanks for the info. I've been thinking thinking about ordering the skirt for a while now so maybe I'll just do it.

Again, I am really drawn to these jeans (and I feel like I'm all over the boards these days saying you can get things cheaper!) but I truly don't understand what draws people to fit. I get "boyfriend jeans" when I wear any of my jeans for more than 5 days! The thighs and waist stretch, creating a looser baggier look. In fact, I rolled my cuffs and did this all summer. I still think they look great, but I really don't understand the marketing for the 'fit' of the jeans when any pair that has 1% elastan in them will do the same.

Kim - Intermix has the skinnies in stores. They do run large in the waist. HTH!
