J Brand proves that the denim movement toward straight and skinny is hardly a trend. With an absolutely clean, anonymous back pocket and sophisticated lines, these jeans are already a classic set for the ages.
I like the idea of these not having a panel, but I actually think I would have preferred a panel. As it is, these jeans aren't *quite* comfortable, because if your shirt isn't long enough you're worried about showing crack or possibly even worse, pregnant lady belly. They are a beautiful wash (though slightly sheen-y, which is nicely dressy but can highlight things you might rather not) and they hold their shape really, really well even after many wears, but I wish they had a full panel or otherwise stayed up a little bit better.By the way, though these are called a legging, they are made of regular denim.
