If you’ve been following along on my Facebook page you know I’m a jeans kinda girl… well, I’m actually over 50 now. Can I still call myself a girl? Even at “my age” I still love wearing jeans. But my number one fashion rule now is “Only wear comfortable clothes.” Especially when I’m traveling to vintage flea markets! So how could I pass up a chance to review PajamaJeans?!?
PajamaJeans advertise that they look like jeans but feel like pajamas. I have to admit that I was skeptical when I ordered my first pair of vintage wash skinny jeans. I was a little worried about the “skinny” part, too. I’m not a big fan of skinny jeans but since I don’t have a pair, I ordered them. I was in between sizes so I went up to a medium just to make sure they weren’t too tight in the legs.
After a 7 day wait I received my PajamaJeans in the mail.
Fabric: As soon as I pulled them out of the package I was amazed how soft they were. The fabric wasn’t at all like what I was expecting. The fabric is a soft, stretchy Dormisoft® denim. (95% cotton/5% spandex) From a distance it looks like denim but when you look at it up close it looks like knit. It’s much thicker than a pair of leggings.
Fit: Like I said, I was a little worried about the fit of these jeans. I usually wear size 6 in boyfriend jeans and 8 in skinny or straight jeans. I ordered a medium. They’re not tight at all on me. I probably could have worn a small and they would have fit like skinny jeans are supposed to. But I’m happy with the looser fit.
The waistband has a string tie with a faux fly. It’s not elastic – which is what I was expecting.
I was also pleasantly surprised to find out the pockets are real! And since I know phones are important to many of you, too, I thought I’d show you how the phone fits into the pockets. Pockets are a major selling point for me!
So really the only way someone could tell they’re not regular jeans is if they see the top or if they look really close at the fabric. And I don’t usually tuck in my shirts anyway so this shouldn’t be a problem. Don’t they look more like straight cut than skinny?
The timing on this project was perfect. We’ll be driving up to Portland (a 10+ hour drive) next week for the Junk Bonanza show and I need something super comfortable to wear. These will be perfect. Comfortable but still look presentable when we make pit stops along the way. This is my outfit for the trip – PajamaJeans, black tank top, Converse, and my utility jacket. I may need to add a scarf and/or a sweater. Sounds like it gonna be cold in Portland!
‘Til the next project,
