If you’re always faithful to your Leigh jeans, it might be time to venture out of Topshop and give ASOS’s new denim range a try. All the jeans are cut to fit a 36 inch inseam (and that’s an actual 36 inches… not a “to fit a 36 inch leg but in a nice little crop-at-the-ankle style”). *
I love these high-waisted jeans in the mid-stonewash (below), because they’re super-snug on the leg and the rise is very flattering on a tall figure. They’re not actually particularly high-waisted, but I’m so sick of wearing hipsters that aren’t made for a tall bum, and these have plenty of fabric to stop you thong-flashing.
At 30 quid they’re also at the cheaper end of the Tall denim spectrum, and they fit true to size (perhaps a little more generously than Topshop). I would get two sizes if you’re in between though, and take advantage of the free delivery and returns. I’m wearing the 10 (W28). They’re also nice and stretchy (not quite as “jegging” like as some of the Leigh jeans, but still with a bit of give).
Lots of you are already fans. ATTT reader Lydia writes, “Any of the ‘Ridley’ style are amazing!! Had the pair with ripped knees for weeks now and still love them just as much! 10000% recommend!”
Let me know if you’ve also tried the ASOS denim already and tell me what you think. And I know a lot of you are denim obsessives, so please let me know what other jean stockists you’re going gaga for at the moment.
*You may find that some of the copy on the website says “34 inches” for the Tall jeans inseam. ASOS buyer Gina tells me that this is a mistake that needs correcting, and sure enough, if you click the drop-down “select size” box, you’ll see that all the size options actually come with a 36 inch leg.
