Great value grey skinnies
A great buy - the grey is not too dark, not too light. The fabric is very stretchy so would suggest sizing down a damn good buy for the price.

Good Value
The legging jean was a bit smaller than expected (I usually wear Paige Denim and Citizens of Humanity) but stretched pretty quickly. I've worn them a few times now and even though they stretched pretty quickly first wear, they have held their shape really well. I have a mild addiction to black jeans, and I wanted a second pair of wax coated jeans for every day use that was machine washable. I was a little concerned having read the reviews of these jeans (after placing the order, of course!), especially about the fabric being a bit itchy, but am happy to say that I haven't experienced anything like that. The only thing that I do miss is the front pockets; these legging jeans have "faux" front pockets. All in all, I am a very happy little Vegemite with this pair of jeans and would definitely invest in another pair.

Good quality jeans
Jeans are one of life's mysteries - the same measurements in one brand can be fab whereas in another brand anything but! I am 5'9" and an Australian size 12, curvier through the hips. Normally I wear PaigeDenim, Citizens of Humanity or AG but I 'risked' the Rag&Bone because I really, really, really loved the colour. The colour lived up to expectations (right down to the fading - incredible!) and the denim wasn't as lightweight as AG Stilts or as heavy as PaigeDenim Skyline - it was just the right balance for day to night. I would be as comfortable wearing these jeans out at night with heels as I would be during the day with Chuck's.

My new favourite jeans!
A little bigger around the waist than AG/Citizens of Humanity jeans with same measurements (25cm leg opening etc). Would suggest going down a size to avoid gaping aroudn the waist. Super comfy, though. Love.

A great buy
A great shirt, not as sheer as the photo suggests, which makes it suitable for casual Fridays at work. A bit bigger than a standard Large / size 12 (Australia) - but this is my experience with all Blank Denim purchases I've made.

Check your measurements before purchase
I "ummed" and "ahhed" before buying this. I fell in love with the skirt & top combo as styled by Shopbop but hesitated because I couldn't find any reliable sizing information on the Clover Canyon website. Emails requesting sizing data to both CC & Shopbop went unanswered. I eventually decided to wing it and bought the Large size even though the CC website suggested I was a Medium. I'm glad I did. Even though the skirt has a hip measurement of 92cm (NOT an AUS size 12!) it has quite a bit of stretch and maintains the print well. I think CC's products are quite good quality but for non US shoppers I would recommend checking sizing before purchasing.

A risk worth taking
The Racer is a much lower rise than the CoH Avedon & other skinny jeans by comparable brands (Rag & Bone/JEAN, Paige Denim etc.). The denim is lovely and soft and the colouring is slightly darker than shown in the photograph. I am 173cm tall and the distressing hits all the right places. The cropped length makes them perfect Saturday/Sunday afternoon at the wine bar jeans with a pair of cute heels or even casual Friday in the office jeans with heels & a dressier top. Based on other reviews of the Racer I had considered going up a size (to a 31) but decided to risk the 30 and was very glad I did. Whilst a squeeze to get into the first time, they stretched to fit very quickly while holding its shape (suggest putting them on over a pair of tights and log some couch time before the first "out" wear!).

Loving....
This is my second pair of Skyline jeans and my fifth pair of Paige jeans, so I am a fan of the brand. I love that the denim used for the Skyline is a thicker weave as these jeans hold their shape longer than other jeans I have that have a thinner weave. I am 173cm tall and they are the perfect length; all the distressing fits as per the photograph. They are a lighter grey and will be perfect in summer as well as winter (I'm a southern hemisphere-er). The distressing on the thighs IS all the way through rather than surface distressing as indicated by the photograph, so they are definitely a "weekend" jean and not a "casual Friday in the office" jean.

Perfect Price Point
I was secretly delighted by this purchase. For the price I wasn't expecting much. What I got was the perfect cropped denim jacket in the perfect casual wash (ideal for black skinnies!). I am a size 12 and purchased a medium. It has more than enough room for layering as winter approaches. I also have long arms and this jacket has the perfect sleeve length for us longer-armed of the species. Thrilled!

How much fun is this?
An army jacket with sequinned sleeves? I'm sold! It is lightweight yet warm, and is sized to comfortable fit a t-shirt or medium-weight knit underneath. I am normally a medium top/shirt but decided to go for the large size as I will wear it mostly in winter with layers underneath and thought the extra room in a large size would be sensible. The overall finish was very professional and it was excellent quality for such a brilliant price.
