These were the first pair of bf jeans I tried out last year. For some reason I ordered a size up which of course was too big for me but didn’t realise it for quite a while being clueless to how the bf fit should be. Fortunately my correct and usual size was still available weeks later AND the nice people over at Gap UK let me make the swap. Now they fit even better, more comfortably than before, not just because they’re slightly more worn in, but because of my trimmer tum 🙂It’s my only pair with real distressing, the others have small, token spots of surface distress if any. I love the dark blue colour especially with the brown suede booties – these are just great and it’s all I can do to stop myself from ordering the black version!
I was so lucky when this vintage navy Kelly came along. The box leather has scratches and was a touch dry, all expected due to the age but once I started conditioning, she just glowed!The light scratches are still there but barely noticeable simply because of the precious patina – though it’s not to everyone’s taste to have such a gloss.I realised that even though I consider how the size of a bag looks against my frame, it helps if a relatively large bag has a bit of structure. At the start I was dead against this sellier style: too sharp and rigid. But I came to love it for those very same reasons!My 8 year old was quite upset at seeing the threadbare patches from the start and assured me Grandma would help me fix them 🙂 Even after assurances that they are meant to be there, she still looks at them with a frown. I like the sharp lines of the sellier style against a casual softness. Yes, it’s another man’s jumper I’m wearing and black gloves are on the way 🙂
