Mom jeans? In the Fashion Indie loft? Never!! Mother jeans, however, are a different story. The former Creative Director of 7 For All Mankind, Tim Kaeding, teamed up with Lela Tillem, the former President of Sales & Marketing at Citizens of Humanity to bring us a new line that is the mother of all denim. We tried them on, played around, and we’re giving you the skinny on this more than just skinny jean brand.
Jessy, our fabulous office assistant, fooled around with a floor length denim skirt. Keeping with the drawn out proportions, this angle hanging sweater falls in line, oversized. Disclaimer: If not styled correctly, the long jean skirt could turn 90′s Daria right quick. I have faith you can avoid that mistake and make it work now.
I played around with a pair of ever so slightly khaki-white ankle touching skinnies. I rolled them up touch for good measure to show off my old man gold toe socks sticking out of my suede olive platforms. The top of the pants hit right at my belly button, making it a solid height for a cropped shirt. A sheer button up over a velvet bandeau makes these light pants feel dark.
I also tried out their standard jeans – not pictured here, because they’re standard jeans, and you know how they should look. The fit and feel, however, are anything but standard. Years and years of experience in denim mean mastery. They have the kind of stretch that you love your jeggings for, but they are true denim. They fit snug, but didn’t leave any muffin or pastry looking hiplines. I could do squats, kicks, lunges with ease. Sam Lim (our editor) told me I looked really skinny; I blushed a little, but had to agree. It’s one baddd Mother. And my butt looked great.
