The Jeans

Alex showed me these jeans the other day and my first reaction was that I just loved them!!!
I’ve also seen these in a lot of magazines – patched jeans are everywhere !

But then I wondered, would jeans like this cut your legs in two? Like, as soon as you put them on, would you be 5 inches shorter?

What followed was a long conversation about leg length and patched jeans… We decided we had to talk to you about it.

What do you all think?

    Honnêtement j’adore! je suis en recherche de jean un peu décalé en ce moment, vu que je neporte que ça, j’ai toutes les couleurs au placard! mais là, c’est différent! avec des escarpins, je suis certaine que ça passe très bien!

  • Rachelle February, 4 2013, 9:31 / Reply

    While fitting in a size 2 dresses 26/27 in jeans I have a very curvy body type and thick legs and on top of that I’m 5’4 so I cannot wear jeans like these. Like you said they will cut off my legs I can only get away with them if I wear 5 inch heels. But they are very cute indeed.

    Hey!

    These jeans ar awesome, in my head they are going with classic black jacket, blue silk blouse and with black sneakers!

    So casual, stylish and chic at the same time!

  • Julie M. February, 4 2013, 9:33 / Reply

    Love the cut (love MiH en général). Hate the patch thing, it looks silly/odd/gimmicky to me. As if they didn’t know what else to invent, and they came up with that… And I don’t think it looks particularly flattering (that’s my polite way of saying that girls under 5’8″ and over 130 lbs should stay away from that).

  • Nomadic D. February, 4 2013, 9:35 / Reply

    Yes, absolutely, these jeans would cut your legs in two. Maybe if you are a tall and lanky model you don’t mind, but on mere mortals, I just can’t imagine these being a good idea. Could we at least have the darker part on top to be a bit more slimming the thighs? Even then… I don’t know… I’d pass. But then my legs are extremely, ahem, athletic, so I don’t think I’m the target consumer for these particular jeans to say the least.

    Really like these jeans!!!
    i don’t think they look like cutting the leg, at least in the picture.
    i think it’s great to have more patchwork jeans wearable options, for a change to plain jeans, as it makes otufits look wholly more thought-through.
    Genius option on a daily basis. I vote yes!!!

    je pense que c’est joli quand tu es fine avec de grandes jambes, sinon ça casse la jambe et je pense que la couleur bleach grossi, c’est pas un jean flatteur pour tout le monde, hélas, en gros si t’es Gisèle Bunchen, tu peux essayer,. Sinon avec les baskets c’est joli, c’est simple et original à la fois.

    Tout est affaire de dosage non?
    Une fille très ronde évitera de mettre des vêtements très amples, et peut tout à fait (enfin, selon moi hein) mettre un jean blanc s’il est bien ajusté. Et une fille minuscule comme moi, pour mettre le superbe jean en photo, le portera avec des talons ou alors s’il est un peu long le roulera pour découvrir la cheville comme sur la photo… et pof 5 cm de gagné!

    D’ailleurs… IL ME FAUT CE JEAN!!!

  • CORY SCOTT February, 4 2013, 9:44 / Reply

    Il est magnifique ce jean! Le jean est tellement beau qu’on ne voit pas la longueur (ou la non longueur…) des jambes! Celui-là est complètement fou! Moi qui penche toujours pour des jeans super simple, je serai bien tentée par celui là… Très belle trouvaille!
    Celà dit il faut quand même avoir de jolies jambes sinon ca le fait moyen :-)

    Well, I don’t think it shortens the legs. I just think that patched jeans can’t be worn by girls with fat legs (like me). It draws attention to this part of the body, which we try to hide.

  • jordan February, 4 2013, 9:48 / Reply

    you know, my first thought is: so cool! but then, yeah…they do seem to cut the legs in half and make the wearer look shorter. i still like them, though, but wouldn’t wear them myself. :)

  • Gabrielle February, 4 2013, 9:49 / Reply

    Two tone jeans like this might really shorten the legs, but there are other patched jeans where the patches are over the knees or above or both, there is actually quite a cool version from Zara! I find that when the jeans are just patched over the knees or similar they don’t shorten the legs. xxx

  • Ashton February, 4 2013, 9:51 / Reply

    I am 5’3″, but I would rock these. They wouldn’t be my go-to jeans when I’m having a “fat day” (haha), and I would probably have to get them tailored (like everything else I purchase that isn’t already ankle-cut). Otherwise, they’re very cute, and I don’t think the color block would make me look THAT much shorter. I must agree with a previous comment and say that they might look better paired with a heel on someone who is short.

  • Nathalie, l'heure d'été February, 4 2013, 9:53 / Reply

    (Et bravo pour la chouette animation…)
    De mon côté, je suis totalement pour ! La couleur plus foncée est en bas et attire le regard sur la longueur de la jambe, malgré l’aspect “coupé” de jean.
    Bah, et puis si en fait ça casse la silhouette, tant pis. Pour moi, c’est trop tard, j’ai déjà envie de porter ce pantalon. Évidemment, en tant que personne lambda, je n’ai pas reconnu le jean en question. C’est quoi, exactement ?
    A bientôt,
    Nathalie

  • Nathalie, l'heure d'été February, 4 2013, 9:53

    Appelez-moi Cruchette, je n’avais pas pris garde au lien… Je suis allée voir le jean sur le e-shop : très joli toujours ! Merci pour la belle tentation…

  • Sarah February, 4 2013, 9:55 / Reply

    J’en ai vu un il n’y a pas longtemps et je me suis posé la même question!
    Je pense que ça dépend, si la couleur claire est en haut ça aura plutôt tendance a cacher les petit défauts en haut (cuisses fortes, un peu de hanches…) et porter plus d’attention sur la partie plus foncée, ici donc sur les mollets (où en général on a moins de problèmes!). Donc je pense que dans ce sens là ça marche mais l’inverse aura tendance à accrocher l’oeil uniquement sur la partie haute et donc raccourcir la jambe.

    J’espère avoir été claire :)

    I think that if you really want to put it to the test, you need to see what the jeans look like on someone say 5’3″. Beautiful long legs can wear anything. But short legs??? That’s wear things get tricky

    I think it might be better to have the darker denim on the thigh area, as it would make the thighs look a little slimmer (for ladies who have that…cough*me*cough). However, I think the look is very relaxed but unique. I like. :D

  • J'en ai envie February, 4 2013, 10:06 / Reply

    Concernant ce modèle je pense en effet qu’il peut couper la jambe. Mais dans le cas de la demoiselle qui le porte sur tes photos je pense que ce n’est pas flagrant…

    Après je me souviens que les jeans tie and die portés avec des chaussures de la même couleur que la couleur du bas du pantalon ça allonge la jambe…

    J’ai commencé par penser comme toi “Ah, j’adore !”.
    Mais en cliquant sur le lien de Saks, je trouve ça très vilain. A mon avis, tout tient dans le stylisme : les tennis blanches, c’est nettement plus classe que les chaussures à talons noir sur ce coup là. Et je pense que la bonne idée, c’est aussi le haut clair qui évite de “découper” encore un peu plus le corps.
    En bref, c’est ta photo qui est belle, pas le jean !

  • Virginie/Mode9 February, 4 2013, 10:15 / Reply

    J’adore aussi, c’est sur que moi qui fait 1,63 je le porterai plutôt avec des talons. Je suis une adepte des slims imprimés et même à plat c’est cool, en revanche il faut qu’ils soient hyper bien coupés et plutôt moulant à partir du genou.

    The thing I love about these jeans is the interest they create: you can’t just glance, your eye is drawn back again and again with the questions. Ultimately for me though the answer is similar to others, I wish they had put the darker colour on top….oh, but then they would look like the ombré Rag and Bone….hmmm. Must say the length is parfait!

    jeez, haven’t commented for 3 years here….
    but, have you ever heard of horizontal mapping?
    and why stripy things don’t really make you fatter, if the stripe is of the right width, the result is quite the opposite. the trick is in the placing, or, where they are cut. if they don’t cut through the widest part or your leg, but through the thinner ones (note the visible ankle, definitely the thinnest part of the leg), they can actually make you look thinner.
    same with putting the darker shade on the bottom, the place that is normally in shade due to perspective (talking about normal situations, no funny stuff). that also contributes to the effect that your legs are aaaall up to there, to the ground.
    all clear now?

    I say fine if you are a size 0. Me, not so much. At 5’3 and curvy, the faded jean is more fatal than a white jean, and I believe if you are not at least 5’6, you run the risk of being chopped off at the knee.

    Hmm, I can’t call this. I think they look good in the picture, but personally speaking, I wear jeans to show off my assets…I don’t know too many people who want to draw attention to their knees. Then again, if you *want* to divert attention away from problem areas, this could work, but if your legs are short then it could backfire on you. This is the most flip floppiest post I’ve ever made!

    J’aime en théorie, mais après avoir vu la mannequin sur le site, je trouve que ça désarticule le corps, faisant un effet armure de chevalier. À chaque pas, et c’est “elle plie les genoux, les déplie, avance un mollet…” ça attire l’attention vers les mouvements des mollets, ce qui peut être intéressant. Personnellement, je ne porte pas de vernis à ongles sur mes mains car je trouve ça trop distrayant, imagine si j’avais ces jeans! Je déboulerais probablements quelques escaliers, hypnotisée par le mouvement de mes propres jambes!

    i think it’s a bit like boots over skinny jeans, if it works it works, if it doesn’t it does make you look chopped off and shorten your leg line. color and seam placement would make a difference for sure! i love it on the model in the pics, very cute with her white trainers ;)

    They look great on the girl in the shot – slightly cropped to show her ankle, and paired with those simple, clean, white shoes.

    I’m just 165cm tall – not super-thin like the above model – and I love to wear my patched jeans. Our shape is what it is – you can’t really hide it/shorten it/slim it/lengthen it/widen it, and it’s OK to be who we are and wear what we like, if we love something.

    I would, however, agree that wearing patched jeans looks most flattering when we wear them exposing the ankle, with a streamlined shoe – either like the demure sneakers above, or with a fresh, white, perforated Church’s Burwood brogue, and a simple T-shirt or singlet.

    It’s not about how tall we are – it’s about the proportions of the jean (where it falls on the leg/how fitted or loose they are on the leg) and its patches (where do they fall? Lower suits some, while higher and random suits others), to our height and body-shape.

    Last month, I fell in love and bought two (yes -two – I loved them so much) patched pairs from Zara in a size larger, to wear loose and cuffed high with my white perforated brogues or slim, grey ankle boots and over-sized indigo tie-dye racer-back singlet… I don’t think the patched jeans make me look taller, but they are so comfortable and I feel so happy in them.

    I’m not really digging the 2-tone jeans. Maybe there are other patched jeans I’d like more but it Looks like beach-only wear to me — however, I
    LOVE how they spark conversation and opinion. That’s a great post! So much fun to read!

    I think you’re right Garancé, especially since the upper half is lighter than the bottom half. If your upper and lower legs aren’t the same size, then it’s going to majorly draw attention to the upper half! They’re beautiful though, I think a patchwork jean can be slimming if the darker portion is on top…

    J’adore. C’est clair. J’aimerai pouvoir l’essayer par contre (en France) pour être sure que ça me va (je ne suis pas bien grosse mais je ne fais quand même pas du 34 :-))
    Par contre, par rapport au débat qui a lieu sur cette toile, je ne vois pas vraiment pourquoi il couperait la jambe : quand on regarde ton animation rapidement, ça ressemble à un très beau jean (sur de très jolies jambes, certes) avec des bottes hautes : et, alors ? on en mets toutes des bottes cavalières sur des jeans clairs !! ce qui serait moche, ce serait s’il coupait la jambe à une hauteur totalement bâtarde, jamais vue, et qui ne colle pas avec la morpho (comme on peut le voir avec des bottes mi mollet accordées à une jupe au genou par exemple !!! HORRIBLE) Bref : je vote OUIIII !!!! (il existe en France pour essai alors ?…) :-) Bises

    Effectivement très sympa ce jean mais pas du tout fait pour moi ..
    Je pense qu’il est préférable d’avoir des jambes plus fines pour le porter !

    love these pictures done in a sequence…. kind of like a go at your own pace gif… really makes it come alive!!! I like the pants.. yes she has skinny cute long legs.. I do not know how they would look on a pair of shorter gams.. hmm.. and I thought at first they were dip dyed.. that would be a cool idea too…

    These jeans and the white shoes = brilliant!

    I like them, with the right style they can be cool, but I think that a big miss is round the corner!

    The length is great, love the cropped jeans, but good point about the 5 inches shorter… i’m 5.8 and still i would have to take a long look at the cabin door mirror to figure out if i could pull that off :))

    Oh mais, ne serait-ce pas ENCORE un slim taille basse? ;) En tout cas moi j’adore, on peut aussi trouver des modèles de ce type chez Surface to air (version gris, magnifique).
    Bisous!

    I love the CONCEPT, but I think what would be WAY cooler, would be the same style in black and white denim (white on the bottom) or EVEN BETTER in a dark denim/black denim combo(THOSE i would rock the f*ck out of..).. In this pair, the light 80s wash on top and the darker down below seems harder for normal women to wear.. MiH! make me dark denim/black colorblocked jeans! ok thanks.

    Forget about the jeans. WHAT SNEAKERS ARE THESE!!!!!!??????

  • Brittiny February, 9 2013, 12:33 / Reply

    I would have to agree. These jeans would probably make your legs appear shorter (or maybe even bigger) such would not work for everyone.

    I really like the sneakers the model is wearing. Can someone tell me which brand they are/where I can get them?
