I've got a pair of Topshop Baxters which I've had for a couple of years and absolutely love - great quality, dark wash, proper structured denim, really slim fitting straight leg without being too skinny. They're finally starting to look a bit tired now and when I looked at Baxters in Topshop the other day with a view to getting some more I was shocked to discover they're completely different. Really stretchy like jeggings, not to mention cheap looking. My perfect jeans I spent years searching for are no more and I am bereft .
So chin up and moving on, can anyone suggest something similar to my original pair? Not looking to spend megabucks, but would go up to about £75, maybe £100, for perfection. Preferably cheaper though. I also need a proper long leg (original pair were from the Tall section which I'm not even sure they've bothered putting the new Baxters into anyway).
I've always loved topshop jeans too, but have recently got some vintage skinny ones from next which are a great fit and hold their shape.... They are tight though.... but I've seen them in slim leg which you might prefer. They aren't a bad price either!
Thanks everyone. I went into Gap today and got some of their Real Straight jeans. Seemed to have a similar sort of look to my Baxters, but I guess the proof will be in the wearing/washing. It was a bit odd as my size were absolutely huge and I had to go two sizes down, but I'm not complaining! 30% off as well, which was nice.
