I love jeans. Any kind of jeans, you name it – skinny, cropped, boyfriend, flare, boot cut – I have them all in my closet. My first pair of ‘high-end’ jeans were bought after my first few pay checks back in 1997. They were Diesel and I got them on a fabulous, indulgent shopping trip in Harrods. For a while I was loyal to Diesel – I loved their unique cuts and soft denim. Then they started creeping up in price and when I started looking for skinny jeans I fell in love with the Hudson Collin jeans. Since then I’ve been a Hudson loyalist and I own their bell bottoms, boot cuts and skinnys. What I like about Hudson is the rear button flap pocket and the fact that they offer both low rise and mid rise jeans.
The other week, while on the hunt for a new pair of boyfriend jeans, I found myself back in the Diesel store in Atlanta. I wanted to try the Diesel Fayza jean. They are totally different from any other jean I have seen on the market – tapered, with a low crotch and a twisted seam – almost harems – but with a little more attitude. I made the mistake of trying on, and ultimately falling in love with the Jogg version of the Fayza. Diesel’s new Jogg jeans are incredible – in my eyes the ultimate in comfort and style. Jeans combined with sweats – genius. The jeans have a jersey lining – making them incredibly comfortable and easy to wear – but unfortunately also crazy expensive. The Fayza’s that I fell in love with were $330 – I just couldn’t do it – but I’ve dreamt about them every night since.
In an effort to convince myself that they are worth the price I tracked down a pair of Fayza’s on eBay – not the Jogg jeans mind you – just the regular denim. Nonetheless the cut is part of the reason I am obsessed with them, so I thought they were worth a punt. I love how unique they are – I haven’t seen anyone else wearing anything similar. I snapped them up on eBay for a steal – a brand new pair too. After wearing them once and acquiring complements from my lovely Husband, I’ve now added a pair of Jogg Fayza’s to my ‘must have’ list for AW 2013. I adore these jeans. You may think I’m crazy, I don’t care.
Unfortunately this rubbish photo hasn’t displayed them in all their low crotch glory – they’re a very dark wash and I should have used my Nikon – sorry!
