I'm going back to wearing skinny jeans

I wore some today, my word they were comfortable. I loved the snug feel.
Sick of what are basically wide jeans.
But I need new ones.
Black ones, and dark indigo I think. Which ones are good, don't go baggy, don't fade and are under £100? Preferably. Could go up to £170 for very good black ones that don't fade.

I've had black jeans from Whistles they haven't faded and quality is great.

I buy mine in Matalan. April skinny, they hold their shape and colour well.

rightknockered Thu 19-Oct-17 18:02:44

Oh yes Whistles. I've just looked and they have a dark rinse. I'll try them on tomorrow. I don't live or work near a Matalan, but will keep that in mind.

They are about £15. I have tried them all and these are the best. <<gavel>>

I was very sick this time two years ago and lost five and a half stone, I went shopping money no object (as you do when you thought you were going to meet your maker grin) and these were seriously the best.

I really like dorothy perkins Eden skinny jeans. Lots of different colours too.

Asia's Whitby jeans are ace.

rightknockered Thu 19-Oct-17 18:04:45

Thankyou, I could pop into Dorothy Perkins.

NikiBabe Thu 19-Oct-17 18:04:59

Mine are from gap. i like the different styles. True skinny, curvy skinny, etc.

About £50 & they often have good discounts.

Can’t beat Levi’s, around £90. I find they’re the only jeans that don’t slide down and fit on the waist properly. I have a relatively small waist and find all other brands gape at the back - Levi are worth every penny!

*Asos, sorry auto correct.

Primark super skinny fit brilliant and only 13 pound!

Another vote here for Dorothy Perkins Eden. They are so soft. Hold their shape and colour amazingly.
I found another pair of black ones in my wardrobe new with the tag on - they look pretty much identical to the ones Ive been living in and washing all year! £20 a pair.

Third Dorothy Perkins - they have survived countless washes and held shape, plus they’re super cheap so I always buy a few pairs.

ElspethFlashman Thu 19-Oct-17 18:26:42

Next 360 for the win. The DP Edens slid down on me unfortunately. But the 360s are the comfiest stretchiest jeans I've ever owned. The ankle hem is super stretchy too so it doesn't matter how er.....sturdy your ankles are. They make my legs look better than they are!

Ktown Thu 19-Oct-17 18:31:02

They are perfect for wet British weather.
Wide leg get wet and flap about your ankles.

mousemoose Thu 19-Oct-17 19:26:42

Hang on is it the dp Eden jeggings? Are they not a bit legging-y?

dontpokethebear Thu 19-Oct-17 19:30:47

I bought the Eden jeans after they were mentioned on a thread.
Bought two pairs, blue and black. Honestly, they are the worst jeans I have ever bought. Did not hold their shape, bagged at the knees after an hour, just awful. Sorry sad

Topshop Jamie jeans are hands down the best I've ever had. Have tried much more expensive and much cheaper and Topshop ones always feel much better quality, fit perfectly and come in the best colours. I personally find Dorothy Perkins jeans thin and a bit old fashioned in terms of colour and fabric.

Hush skinny jeans are fab and down from £75 to £25 in their sale today,

glovesonstrings Thu 19-Oct-17 19:50:26

Primark are the best skinny jeans I've found. Much better than other expensive brands. But I suspect it depends on your shape.

rightknockered Thu 19-Oct-17 19:52:42

I could try Topshop, but find the sizing odd. I need a 27, but they have either 26 or 28.

rightknockered Thu 19-Oct-17 19:53:26

I've tried Primark, after a friend recommended them, but they stretch out a bit too much.

Orangebird69 Thu 19-Oct-17 19:54:11

These from Next are fab. Can't recommend them enough.
