Not Quite for my Athletic Build
Love Mother denim, but somehow these did not meet my expectations from this label. The fit was not at all flattering or comfortable on my athletic physique. The rise was somewhat awkward for me, and it seemed to feel binding on my thighs instead of hugging them as my other pairs of Mother do. The wash was great, but I felt the material was not to par with what my other pairs of Mothers have provided.

Relaxed Alternative to Highwaisted Short
These are a fun pair of cut offs! Button hole closure gives a loose drape to waist, and although the sides have small slits up the seam, they give good coverage without a high waist, which is not flattering on my athletic build. I could have gone down a size, but happy with the relaxed feel of the size I ordered. The wash is a true black and after multiple washes there are no signs of fading. However, they do relax/stretch after one wear. Happy with purchase, always pleased with Shopbop's service.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

A Little on The Awkward Side.
I love James Jeans!!! The pockets area always flattering for my ample behind and the legs are usually very accommodating for my athletic legs. The biggest problem is that the leg remains wide all the way down, loosing its effect of a flattering silhouette. Being a coated denim, It seems more logical that the piece would want to hug your entire leg, and not have a tiny flare at the ankle or bulk at the knees. This is the first time a pair of James that won't be staying in my closet.

J Brand Not for my Athletic Body.
This is my third failed attempt at trying J Brand. These are a really great styled jean. Well made as all J Brand, but for me personally they do nothing to compliment my body. I have an athletic build,so if you happen to have robust thighs these may not be the jeans for you. If not, these are a super fun pair and the zipper placement is quite flattering, big thighs or not.

Great Price Point Jean.
Cant go wrong with Blank Denim's price point. Still feel and style like good quality jeans. I have an athletic build and must be cautious of pocket size and placement. The back pockets are a little small for my preference, but still overall a very good weight of denim and nice styling.

Fun, Well Fitting Casual Jean.
First pair of Mother jeans, and I am not disappointed. Very comfortable fit, with nice pocket placement and size. Fabric borders on a jegging weight, but is still a jean. Very well placed stressing marks. They do stretch out a little sooner than I prefer, within second wearing, so will need more laundering, not sure how they will hold out as of yet. Overall, happy with the purchase.

Twiggy Fan
Although I always size up in the Twiggy, I feel these are true to size. i have an athletic build so the extra ease to the thighs is welcome, and belts are ok with me. The denim is soft, yet it has a bit of weight to it, which was not what I desired for summer. The colour and styling is very multifunctional. They launder well, and can be worn about four times before they are starting to stretch too much.

Another Fabulous Pair
These jeans have a beautiful rinse and dark stitching giving a real stream line look. I am a huge James fan, especially the Twiggy jean is my "go to" skinny. The denim is soft, which in this case may be to their disadvantage. They move with great ease with the body, but I did notice they relaxed a fair bit, and may compel me to wash them after every second wear. I am in the "between sizes" dilemma. I am safest with a 28, but with these I could have safely taken the 27 for certain. Overall I am happy with the jean, as they flatter my rear view and accommodate my muscular thighs. Unless you are a solid size in every brand, I would say size down to your lower size in these jeans.

Another Pair of James!!
I love the Twiggy jean by James Jeans. It is the perfect skinny jean for my build. I have these in grey as well, so went up one size in these as I did in the grey. Waist is larger, but perfect accommodation for my hips and upper thighs, which tend to be where I will carry weight, and I have muscular thighs. Fabric is dense but very soft and comfortable. Some relaxing happens but not enough to lose shape. Perfect pocket placement for my behind. Color is a nice departure from my typical dark denim,black or grey. It is closer to grey than I had anticipated but falls into the brown category. Looking forward to wearing the life out of these.

Love My James!
Had read a few reviews prior and decided to size up. They fit perfect, waist is a little larger so belt is required, and do have a tendency to relax a fair bit, nothing that makes them lose their shape. Fabric is super comfy and the color is a really flattering grey that goes with other grey garments. They launder well, with no shrinkage or noticeable fading. As always with James, the pocket placement and shape is perfect for my athletic shape and the the thighs are accommodating enough. Still a very affordable premium denim, that I will continue to bring into my closet.
