but I haven't used them as I need to have to have them tailored and I don't feel good in jeans unless they are a perfect fit.
Hi Pucci - Notify do two cuts of waxed jean - the anenome (sp??) and the hellebora - the anenome is the skinnier fit and the hellebora straight legged. I tried the hellebora which aren't skinny but not the anenome as I am kind of being to tire of the super skinny look...I know Caffeine has actually bought a pair of the Notifys so maybe she can advise you more on the various fits???

Thanks for your help Grill... great help as always. Karma!

I saw the jeans on Caffeine, and they were bit too bootlegged for my liking.. I wonder who sells Notify in london, I might go to have a look in person.

they are the anemone (sp?) pair. they are actually not as boot legged as they appeared on the pic because I folded them inside to the shorter length. I think that they are 12" at knee and 12" opening.

Ooh Caffeine, have you got them altered yet? I'm trying to find a pair of 28 blackc oily anemone but that size seems to be sold out across the web. I have a pair of Calypso in 28 and it fits ok around my waist. Do the wax jeans stretch out a lot? I wonder if I should order either a size up or down...I hate wearing jeans that get stretched out but I also don't want them to be too tight...so should I wait for my 28, or get 29 or 27? Thanks

apparently, I am on the opposite end of the spectrum. I love the Superfine wax harry's. I went down a size. they aren't super narrow but just right, super narrow is for leggings IMO. and they are plenty waxy for me, I stuck to the car seat. I washed them (inside-out) even though they say dry clean and they shrunk a bit but that was fine because they gave once they felt body heat. If I wanted stickier I would wear leather.

I have not will do tomorrow.
why not order a size up and give it a try? mine are 25, and i have a pair of 24 paige and a pair of 24 jbrand. the wax jeans felt very close to the jbrand 24. in addition, I read somewhere that it gives it a little rocker chic look if you wear the wax jeans slightly relaxed...and I actually think that it makes sense. shopbop has freeshipping, so you don't lose anything

Thanks well, I am afraid that the 29 might stretch out or be too big because I have too many bad experiences with jeans that are just too big on me after several wears...I'm actually more inclined to the 27 but then again I don't want it to be so tight that I can't button my pants or have sausage legs but I read on activeendeavors that people should size down if they are between sizes so I'm so confused...

Why is their jeans more expensive on NAP? It's about $20 and plus shipping...I can get them much cheaper with no shipping cost from shopbop or revolve...NAP scams pp!!!

OMG I'm spending too much time on this thread but do you think these Notify jeans on Linda are the wax anemones...I know she wore these like 2 years ago but they look awfully similar or maybe it was just an older style



pix from lookonline and vogue.uk

They really do look similar, to be honest from the pictures i've seen here and on n-a-p the notify's don't seem to much more of a wax finish than the Superfine's.
