These are my favorite jeans, because every wardrobe needs a solid pair of black jeans that don't look too dead. By that I mean, alot of black jeans have a flat finish to them. No pop, or crispness. Or you have the other type of black that looks ridgid, like you're about to go bale some hay in them(LOL). Then my last type of black jeans I don't like are the ones that have too much stripey gray prints going through them, like I'm doing hard time (no offense Russell Simmons American Classics brand, but you could have done better. I do like the shirts though!). Too prison-looking! My point is that these jeans are black, but with the perfect hint of blue and a white undertones to keep them from looking drab. These are the most stylish pair of black jeans I have ever owned, and I find myself wearing them more than any other jean because they are so versatile! I own two pair, and I'll keep getting them as long as they are made available.
