The New (CHEAPER) Premium Denim

The Wall Street Journal had an article this week about the new attempts by mall stores to create jeans that we would choose over 7's, J Brand, or any other premium brands. I can only attest to the new styles at the Gap and I have to say they are great. I bought a pair of the new skinny jeans, and although I haven't worn them out yet, I have worn them around the house and I really like them. I don't feel like i'm sacrificing anything to wear these skinny jeans instead of J Brand skinnies, and I saved more than $100. They are a good weight, have the right shape including a contoured waistband, and the butt looks great.

The one thing I don't think is right is that they claim they are the same as designer sizes now. I have to disagree, they are still a little bigger than premium brands. But, I do think a lot of people who had been sized out of Gap clothes (because they were too big) will be able to wear these.
