One of the many perks for working in Fashion is not having to always pay retail.

G-Star does a killer slim-fit boot cut (beware as some styles are cut looser). Rogan does slimmerish jeans, Blue Cult bootfits are VERY slim (I wear a 28 and I hate to admit that they are almost too slim on me), I have a pair of True Religon cords that fit like perfection, and a pair of jeans that fit almost as well. Earl Jeans does a couple really, really great fitting bootcuts for men, but it can be hard to find them in sizes under 30. Helmut Lang does some great slimmer jeans, as does Marc by Marc Jacobs. There really are a lot of options, and obviously with all brands it depends on what style, as some will run much looser. I do not personally have any strict reservation to spending $300 on jeans, if they seem worth it. You are almost at the Dior Homme price point there though, and we all know that those are probably the best fitting men's jeans out right now.

Interesting...I own a pair of black denim with whiskers from Dior Homme. It is a size 46, but with time it seemed to be getting looser and I don' t think I am losing any weight so that's weird/annoying and I am not too crazy about the bunching up effect because the inseam is too long (37"). I guess I am butt-less so I can't really find anything that don't sag around the *** I might try some women's but I hate how they are always on a separete floor...I don't think they allow guys in women's fitting room

Aren't these Notify Jeans the ones that Britney Spears always wears? They look nice, but I've never seen them on anyone in person so I dunno...?

I bought a pair of the Anemone Stretch hoping they would be nice and long (I'm 6'1" and I'm always in heels), but as soon as I held them up, I knew they were too short. The length was a better fit for my sister who's 5'7". Oh well.

Also to add to these brands, raijin showed me the website for Lad Musician which also has some great slim fitting jeans from what I've seen in their pictures, and while they're not cheap it's a reasonable alternative at around $200 for a pair.

Dior Homme jeans fit great (the 19 cm is really slim, the black whiskered one that Foxie Pooh has is 21 cm and I find that one is nice too, more of a straight leg cut though) but the pricing is insane as there are lots of styles that are $500 and don't even go on sale, as they are carried from season to season. But if you can find them on sale online or during sales time I would think they are worth a shot.

I have one pair and love them. I snagged a $300 pair for $40 on the sale rack at Marshall Field's!

I have a pair of Notify jeans in the Hellebora (medium wash, straight leg), and I love them. They're very fitted and the jeans are incredibly soft from the get-go. I know that some of their jean styles have a 36" inseam, but mine don't seem to be a 36". They might be a 34"-35" at most because I'm 5'9" and they're only a tad long.

Has anyone purchased current Notify jeans in NA recently? I was told they weren't distributed to NA anymore.

Does anyone know if you can buy them in Australia? I'd buy them online if only I knew what size I'd be

I want these wax jeans that Charlotte Gainsbourg is wearing- anyone know the style name?
