This weeks review is on the J Brand 877 Kinsey Skinny Jean.
To be honest I was attracted to the colour “Tangerine” first rather than the style. Also how good could the fit be on this skinny jean after reviewing the J Brand Nikko Skinny Jean a couple of weeks ago and giving it the high score 9/10!

Well I stand corrected as the fit just gets better for my apple body shape!
Lets start… I’m trying on the size 25 so the front rise may differ as you go up/down the size ratio.
The Fit: The J Brand 877 Kinsey Skinny Jean is a mid-rise skinny with a self coloured racing stripe down the outside of the jean. Bang on trend for the sportswear look this Summer. The fit on the leg is narrow, elongating the leg with the stripe on the outside giving an illusion of slimmer leg. Sizing starts at 23-32, That’s approx a size 4 up to a 14.
Front Rise: measures 8 inches (my perfect rise) Back Rise: measures 13 inches, which gives great bottom coverage making these jeans so comfortable.
The Behind: Back pockets are simple giving a nice pert shape to my flat bottom.
The Leg Opening: 10 inches making this a skinny jean for sure.
Leg Length: 30 inches. Jo Pratten, Donna Ida’s in-house stylist suggested I rolled up the jean a couple of times so the hem sat on the ankle, which in a strange way elongated my leg more. I really like this look (see first image).
The Fabric: 98% Cotton, 2% Elastane, has good stretch-ability. 9.5-Ounce Japanese Luxe Twill. Comes in a bright Tangerine (orange), Nightfall (Navy), Empress (natural) and Tigers eye (peach).
Function: A comfortable skinny jean that makes you feel slim and tall. I love the bright tangerine colour-way, however the Nightfall maybe an easier colour to wear if your looking for a day-time jean. Personally if the fit is good and it is, then you might as well go bright and bold at the same time!
Which Body Shape: Perfect for my apple body shape, great also for Long & leggy, Petite, Hourglass and Small pear shapes. See know your denim for more information.
The Round Up Of The J Brand Kinsey Skinny Jean:
So pleasantly surprised with the fit of the Kinsey and how comfortable they are I broke my no-spend ban and purchased a pair, so I rest my case! This jean ticks all the boxes for me. They look good, feel good and are a perfect rise. I’m also buying into two trends with one jean, coloured denim and sportswear which means I will wear them all through the summer! Price: £235. (don’t ask!)
Tried & Tested Score: 9/10
