I am not a fan of shopping for jeans. Surely I’m not the only person who goes to every store in the mall, tries on 50 pair, and goes home empty-handed. When I had the opportunity to try the new women’s denim line that Dickie’s just launched, I was hopeful, but not sure what to expect.
I was pleasantly surprised! The collection comes in four styles (slim straight, slim boot cut, relaxed straight, relaxed boot cut) and seven washes (rinsed black, vintage dark, antique dark, antique light, dark stone wash, medium stone wash, light stone wash). I really liked the slim straight vintage dark, but since I need short sizes, my choices are more limited! I received the slim boot cut in vintage dark. The jeans have approximately an 8″ rise, low enough to be modern, but not in “I see London, I see France” territory.
The 74% Cotton/25% Polyester/1% Spandex blend makes the jeans move with you, while keeping their shape. This cotton-poly spandex blend found mostly in designer denim, but these jeans retail for around $40.
The small details like the ever-so-slightly worn leg and pocket openings really remind me of designer denim that is 3-5 times the price.
My only complaint is that while the Petite listed on the website (marked short when I received them) was supposed to have a 28″ inseam (exactly what I need), it was actually pushing 30″, even after washing & drying. I loved that the jeans fit the same after washing & drying as they did when they were brand new, and they stretch and are totally comfortable even when I am bending to clean, sitting on the floor to play with my kids etc. They are stylish enough to dress up, but still comfy enough to be casual.
Even though they are too long for me to wear with flats, at just under 5′ tall, I’m used to it! I’d love to see a true “Petite” version scaled for petite women, and with a shorter inseam.
