Blank NYC Skinny Jeans Review

Since I'm going back to school this fall, I've been buying new casual clothes, like jeans.  I really wanted to try J Brand - but since I'm not going to have any monies in the next couple of years, I decided to be more thrifty.

Blank NYC (launched in 2007) promotes itself as "premium jeans" without the "premium price tag."  I am guessing they are cheaper than other designer brands because they are made in China. The butt pockets are plain, though there are some styles with studs.

I bought the Skinny Classique Jeans in "Ike and Tina" from tobi for $32 (originally $68!), using the coupon code "EXTRA20" for an extra 20% off the sale price (good till July 18, 2010).  My first thoughts (haven't worn them out and about yet) - the wash is an indigo rinse type color with no distressing whatsoever; material is on the thinner side but it's stretchy and so quite comfortable.  Sizing for this style is similar to 7 for All Mankind / Paige and the like.  The fit is flattering, but I will definitely need to hem these - am going to try to do it on my own.  All in all, for the price I am satisfied!
