These Are The Straight Leg Jeans Of Our Dreams

I love a straight leg jean. It is a fit that first made its appearance with Levi’s original blue jeans – and one that I would argue hasn’t waned in significance ever since. Tapering slightly to the knee, the straight leg style is neither too tight, nor too loose and it has the effect of elongating your legs overall. Which is why the Well Made Clothes office is loving the Lucia Jean in Mid Indigo right now. The style is crafted from beautiful indigo denim, while the straight leg shape makes it the jean of all our dreams.

The Lucia jean is impossibly classic in style – did I mention that the straight leg style has been around since 1873? But it also pairs incredibly well with both heels and a boot. This makes it an effortless choice for the day-to-night transition – and I am all about minimising outfit changes wherever possible. The straight leg style is also among the most comfortable of all denim silhouettes, focussing on a shape that mimics the natural curve of your leg. 

Unlike a skinny jean, this style does not narrow all the way to the ankle, but it also doesn’t flare out quite as dramatically as a true seventies jean. While I do believe that all denim styles have their place in a great capsule wardrobe, buying jeans is also a highly personal thing. And, for me, it’s the straight leg style that makes me feel most at ease.

Thank god for Denimsmith, then, which has made our jean dreams come true with the Lucia. As if the perfect proportions and beautiful, high quality denim of this style weren’t enough, it is also fairly made in Melbourne. As Denimsmith’s own Vinh Le explains, the brand has “built a team with similar values and ethics. From our Designer to Customer support, we have the same vision in promoting local shopping and purchasing Australian made products from a fair and ethical source. We all work under the one roof, so it is vital to be respectful of one another’s skills.”

I have said it before and I will say it again: there is just nothing quite like well made denim when it comes to completing your perfect capsule wardrobe.
