I absolutely love these jeans -- flattering cut, beautiful substantial denim. However, I have the darker color in both the 32 and 33 -- the 32 is so flattering and the 33 is a bit more relaxed. I picked up these 33s on sale, and they fit more like the 32 in the other wash. Since I'm hoping you'll bring back the Alex in black at some point, I'm puzzled as to which size I'll be buying . . . .
I wrote to Decade to ask about my fit problem -- my hips are on the smaller side compared to the rest of me, and the higher-waisted women's jeans I like bag out in the hips in an unflattering way. The suggestion was that I try the Alex in one of two sizes and since I was thinking of the baggy hips, I ordered the smaller of the two. They look amazing -- but my weight is down almost ten pounds after an illness (hoping it'll stay there, but who knows?), so when everything went on sale, I ordered the larger of the two suggested sizes to have on hand just in case. As of now, I'd say I like and will wear both -- the smaller size is so flattering, and the larger a bit more relaxed. The denim is such high quality! Now my hope is that you'll bring back the Alex in black again . . . . I haven't had good black jeans in awhile.
So happy my friend turned me on to Decade! I had been looking for so long for 100% cotton jeans that fit me that are also flattering! Most companies don’t have options for 100% cotton jeans for bigger women that actually look good (I have a 38” waist, 45” hips). I love the fit of these, and they appear to be wearing in nicely. I bought both a size 36 and 37, to have a looser variety, I love both. This style fits me similar to a skinny jean. The material is great too, not too overwhelmingly heavy, the quality is there. I also own 5 pairs of Bonnies, which are also amazing!
The fit, style, cut, and fabric are all perfect. This is the most flattering denim I’ve worn. The cut is perfectly tailored and slim without clinging like a stretch denim. The all cotton fabric feels wonderfully soft and so breathable.
These are my 4th pair of Alex jeans - different washes and sizes for fluctuation. It’s taken me decades 😉 to find jeans that I loved. The fit, the washes/colours, the softness of the denim… And to top it off, the service is always fantastic. Thanks for making the best jeans Molly!
