I've been thinking about trying a pair of Baxter or Jamie skinny jeans. Have previously been a Martha fan - loved the fit of them but would now like something with a slimmer leg (Martha were straight cut - i think they have gone now).
Anyway, Ive noticed that there seems to be two types of Baxter jeans. One type is 98% cotton and 2% elastane (which was the composition of my previous pair of Marthas), the other is 93% Cotton,5% Polyester,2% Elastane. I'm wondering if anyone knows which is better?? The first type seems to have sold out in my size across the board but I can get the second type (probably stretchier) in my jeans in a few different colours.
Also - I've read a few comments on here about Baxter jeans not being "real" skinnies in that they are more a slim cut. I dont want super tight skinnies but I also don't want jeans that bag around the ankle too much.... ? My nearest topshop is a bit of a drive, so will be ordering online. Any help would be appreciated!
Are the fabric mixes different on diff coloured Baxters? I had dark blue ones that were thin and scratchy and I binned after a few wears. But I also have blue-black ones which are thicker and stretchier and wash really well. Will look at the label
The blue black type on the website at the moment are the 93% cotton type here. I'd love to know what co position yours are WeGotAnnie as they sounds exactly like what I want! They have black variations in both compositions.
I don't like jeggings or the spray-on skinnies but I definitely prefer skinny to the ones that some brands describe as "slim" but which are actually so loose on the ankle they are more like straight leg IYKWIM
Just got a pair of dark blue Leighs (slightly loose on waist but the smaller size didn't even do up), got to the till to be told they were �8 which was a nice surprise. I liked the Jamies too but they didn't have my size.
