They're so lovely and fit beautifully
I want them for a naice smart casual look for the airport

Don't need them, lots of other things to pay for, but I last bought an item of clothing in January and was just a £30 denim dungaree dress

Agonising over this purchase

I do have some naice river island jeans for 'best' but these are lovelier smile

MozzchopsThirty Wed 12-Apr-17 14:06:22

I use to buy their me Julie jeans when bootcut where is fashion . They were great jeans . I haven't bought any since but they lasted years . I might go and look at their new styles now you mention it !

You'll get so much wear out of jeans that I say do it too.

whatwoulddexterdo Wed 12-Apr-17 15:05:35

If they are a really good cut on you and you like them then buy them. But don't leave them in the wardrobe "for best" like I do with anything expensive I buy

KoalaDownUnder Wed 12-Apr-17 15:11:20

Definitely buy them.

Jeans that fit beautifully?? BUY.

IHaveBrilloHair Wed 12-Apr-17 15:16:24

Buy them, also link to them!

I don't normally spend much on clothes but jeans are definitely worth spending a bit more for a decent pair! Do it do it do itgrin bad influence

If you ever find a pair of jeans that fit beautifully you are mad not to. It's the holy grail.

BumWad Wed 12-Apr-17 15:27:34

You'll be wearing them jeans forever. Get them! Can we see a pic?

whatwoulddexterdo Wed 12-Apr-17 15:36:02

Please don't post a picture otherwise I will have to buy them( I have over 30 pairs)

Notreallyhappy Wed 12-Apr-17 16:42:15

MozzchopsThirty Wed 12-Apr-17 16:59:15

KatyS36 Wed 12-Apr-17 17:00:28

Buy, as long as you will wear them and they won't cause debt issues.

MozzchopsThirty Wed 12-Apr-17 18:35:24

hmm debt what debt!!!! 🤔

wizzywig Wed 12-Apr-17 18:36:13

Skinny rebound are so lovely

IHaveBrilloHair Wed 12-Apr-17 18:54:46

whatwould, I was about to exclaim at your 30 pairs of jeans, then I thought of my 70 pairs of shoes....grin

MozzchopsThirty Wed 12-Apr-17 18:55:03

Are they good?
Do what they say on the tin?

greeeen Wed 12-Apr-17 18:58:20

I have an old pair of bootcut ones and skinny stretch ones now, totally worth the price tag IMO. Amazing fit and bootcut ones are still going strong from 10+ years ago.

Have you looked on eBay? People often buy things then change their mind and flog them on for a fraction of the price.

Helps if you have the style name/number.

I haven't been the right shape for FC jeans for years but I loved being a size 10 and 12 and wearing their cords. They made me look so tall and curvy! I realise this doesn't help with your decision but I LOVED those things.

BikeRunSki Wed 12-Apr-17 19:01:41

Yes, well fitting jeans are not to be overlooked. You'll regret it if you don't and spend years of your life looking for them on eBay when they are discontinued.

munchkinmaster Wed 12-Apr-17 19:02:31

I only wear those jeans as I look fat in all others. They wash well. Buy me tight, they slacken off.

I bought some last May. Still good as new. M and s £22 ones are fit for bin and bought at same time
