Denim, part two: Reader mail!

Tuesday, November 06, 2007

We very rarely get reader mail (or, at least, reader mail we actually know how to answer). And so, we were kind of delighted to get this note:

Hi, I'm into this cult jeans phase. I know, how shallow. But I'm hoping this will pass soon, as it's not a cheap phase.

Could you recommend any brand of jeans (which are available in Singapore) which are good at accentuating legs and bum? I'm 1.73m, waist 26 inches.

Now, as evidenced by the post above, we are not exactly denim aficionados. We know what we like, we stick with it, we have been burned by paying more. But if we really wanted to go there, we'd probably start with Damien, who has some very cool-looking ladies denim there at The Lawn. (Not to mention earflappy hats, on sale.)

We're also quite intrigued by Hollywood favorite J Brand Jeans (above), which is stocked at Eclecticism (currently of the Mandarin Gallery, soon to be of Wisma Atria) and would definitely recommend trying those out. (Hey, if they're good enough for Reese and Hilary and Jennifer…)

We recently consulted one of our most stylish friends, Daphne, for other designer denim hotspots. She recommends Inhabit in the basement of Palais Renaissance (where they've got buzzy brands like 3.1 Philip Lim and Seven for all Mankind), and also TriBeCa at the Forum (just across the street) and Bread & Butter at Tangs.

We have no idea about the accentuating part, but at 1.73m and a 26-inch waist, we have a feeling you are going to look pretty good in everything. It's probably best if you just go and try a bunch on and see what looks best, but we invite any readers to dispense advice and suggestions you may have.

And thus concludes the denim portion of our program.

Thanks for answering my question. Great advice. And of course, a woman at my age (36), I need all the help I can get, especially at accentuating the butt.

Ethel, with regards to "accentuating legs and bum", the easiest solution would probably be a pair of good skinny jeans.

apart from Eclecticism, J Brand is also stocked at Queens Couture (The Heeren), they also carry Ksubi, might want to check it out.
