Drawing close on the Frame Denim popularity, J Brand jeans and Siwy Denim have the most stylish ambassador of them all: Kate Moss.
She’s been photographed on more occasions than we have fingers to count on, wearing the Sateen Jean from J Brand or the Siwy Hannah Jean from Siwy Denim. Both in a very dark, black wash.
Both pairs go barely over $300, the retail price of a single Frame Denim Skinny de Jeanne pair. So that alone makes it a plus! It goes without saying that whatever Kate Moss wears becomes iconic as the wearer, so if I were to choose from that perspective alone (and the price), I would most definitely go for Kate’s choice.

J Brand Sateen Super Skinny Jean
sells for $185 and comes in eight different colors, although Kate’s are black, there’s nothing stopping us from considering other options. The name comes from the very fabric, the J Brand Sateen denim are made from a super soft fabric with a polished finish. The skinny hugging promise is delivered by a special blend of 97% cotton and 3% elastane, faux front pockets and the image of Kate Moss wearing them clearly imprinted on our retina.

Siwy Denim Hannah It’s Magic Slim Crop Jean
sells for $154 in a black finish duped ‘It’s Magic’. Cropped at the ankle and perfectly tailored for flatter petite ladies but given that Kate Moss is 5’7” (1m70) and looks just right in this cut, tall women can give it a go as well! Hannah comes in a variety of cuts and colors, but It’s Magic was only made in black – and oh, how easy and great it is to wear booties with these ankle cropped jeans, just like Kate does!

My favourite jeans are Citizens of Humanity, The Gap Boyfriend,and Levis. : )
Good old, trustworthy Levi’s have always been my faves.
Ellington, thanks for an advice I didn’t ask for. I was thinking of the Gap Boyfriend jeans, their store is almost around the corner. I’m gonna try it. I own only three pair of jeans. Two really Levi’s oldies and a pair skinny jeans brand……errr…..is in the washer!! LOL!
I too go steady with Levi’s and Gap :) and I have two more pairs from H&M (the really wide legged ones if you remember I even photographed myself wearing them back in 2010 and a flare pair of dark washed jeans I like wearing over boots)
I would love to try Gap’s Boyfriend cut as well – checked out their website but they only have them in one color? no dark wash?
They are both nice but I also have a pair of the Frame’s in luxe noir and they are equally lovely. Trouble is, they really do sort of mould to your body, so if you’re having one of those days when you feel fat, they’re not the greatest choice.
They do, huh? That’s why I usually go around my skinny jeans save for a couple of days when I feel extremely willowy (I actually wear my skinny in the picture from the ‘About’ page) . I was really curious to know if there’s a difference in fabric or cut that would actually make the price worth more than just paying a hype…
