I always find denim is so tough to find and then fall in love with. I can't tell you just how many pairs I own that are ill fitting, and how many pairs I've tried on. In fact, it's my most hated shopping trip. I always wanted to be one of those women who has had the same loved and lived in pair for years. Like a denim soul mate.
A few months ago, I saw a pair of jeans featured in one of the many magazines I surround myself with each month, and those jeans were by New York based denim brand 3x1
, who specialise in custom made, premium jeans. Jackpot.
I had to email them, if I was to have any hope in finding my denim soul mate, this was surely going to be it. The wonderful girls on the press team couldn't have been more helpful and they sent me a denim care package.
What you see here is the result of the first pair of jeans that I have ever loved. They're called the Crop Fringe Tango Jean
. They fit like a dream and the raw and ripped hems are just incredible. Boyfriend, comfortable, cool and black washed denim that I just know will wash out into the best faded black.
Fit wise, they are right on the money. I'm a size 28, so that's what I asked for and they just couldn't fit me any better.
The price point of 3x1 denim is something to write home about too, they aren't asking for a fortune per pair as some other premium denim brands are. They come in at around £205, and let's face it, denim is an investment.
I've got another pair to share with you, and they might possible be the best skinny jeans I've ever seen.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope I've inspired you to find your denim soul mate.
