Feminine Differential - Jeans Demystified (Maybe)?

The above illustration from Levi shows Super Skinny, Skinny, Slim, Straight, Boyfriend, Bootcut and Plus. And that just defines Levi's definitions of leg cut. All clear, right? 

Just for the record, I think Levi left out "flair" that is different from bootcut. If those of us that remember the '70; bell-bottom.  However, it did not take long to find that the list more complicated. 

What could be left?  Low rise, Mid-rise jeans, Normal, Relaxed, High rise, Mile High, Ribcage, Wedgie (my favorite), Apple Bottom, Bib Front, Nautical, Button Fly, Front Zip, Back Zip,  Paper Bag Waist, Hip-huggers, Pull On.... 

Ankle zip

Not done yet: Stretch, Distressed, Dark Wash, Light Wash, Stone Washed,  White, Short, Petite, Regular, Tall, Cropped, Carpi, Palazzo, Bell Bottom, Rolled Cuff, Cut out, Raw Edge,  Fringe-Hem, Embellished, Embroidered, Fringe, Mom, Ankle zip... .   

 Confused? I am!


Let's add one more confusing aspect - Cost. Hang on to your purse for this one. 

Saks Fifth Avenue - Balmain
Faux Pearl Embroidered Washed Straight-Leg Jeans
$2.695. Made in Italy (For that the pearls should be real) 

Nordstrom - Gucci GG Rhombus Patch Skinny Jeans
Ankle-length skinnies in washed nonstretch denim make a signature statement with an embroidered rhombus appliqué and vintage waistband label.  Made in Italy.  $980.00

Venus - Embroidered Jeans
Spirited jeans with playful pops of embroidery at both sides and the bottom of each leg create the start to your new denim look.

One final bit of help is here (maybe):

  1. So much choice! This is why I don't go into a coffee shop :-) I think I'll go with high waisted, dark blue, skinny, ankle grazer jeans, please.... but not the three figure price tag ones ;-)
