There's something about a good boyjean. It's an absolute essential. To think I spent the past seven months sans boy denim is a tragedy, but then again so is the world. Serious inquiry- has the boyfriend jean existed forever? Have people always had access to such a luxury? Luxury that is the removal of fear when wearing a skinny jean only to bend with an intensified chance for a butt crack slip or crotch rip? The question plagued me so I did some research.
I decided to switch it up this time so I began with Madewell, the brand championed by style-lovers fave Alexa Chung. Madewell is sister company to J Crew, though J Crew now finds itself on the marketing fritz, Madewell seems to fill the gap. #PrayforJennaLyons
After fitting my first pair of Madewell jeans a few weeks back, I was hesitant. My body is not made white, it is very much MadeBlack™. Despite this, I decided to give it a go on my second attempt when they had proper sizing options. If it didn't cost more than one big bill, I'd buy in, that was my rule. It didn’t, so I did. Plus the birthday discount was a sweet incentive.
I had to go up my normal size, and get a jean that had a bit more give. Though I would have probably went for the summer jean which reminded me of light wash mom jeans, I settled for a classic fit in a medium wash, though no regrets here. I have worn these jeans for the entire weekend and I am well pleased. I don’t know if this is prophetic, but I can almost already tell from the build quality that some of the issue I had prior (like the lack of a thigh gap) may be a thing of the past. Which means despite friction, the denim will stand. We will find out sooner or later.
I'm not sure how I got through the past few months boyjean less, but never the less, I am alive, young, thriving, and I am with jean though sans boyfriend. ©
