My denim round-up continues with another keeper, this time from Brock Collection. What do I love about them? The fit is good for me, just high enough on the waistline and slim enough in the thigh. The wash and finish have an authentic feel with 100% cotton providing a stiffness you don’t get in a stretch jean. They’re good rolled up or left undone. And, they’re clean.
On a side note, after years of denim with stretch, there’s an adjustment to the comfort expectation. A cotton denim may feel snug at first, but if you remember from the pre-stretch days, they give pretty quickly once on. This fabrication works especially well on the Brock Wright Jean, which is not a tight fit to begin with.
I think Matches Fashion has the best selection. Barneys also carries them, but by the time you add tax, they’re almost $100 more expensive and they take much longer to ship. From Matches, they’re perfectly packaged and on my doorstep in two days.
