I’ve been wanting these Zen Vintage black skinny jeans since Talltique first got them. More like when they posted the pics on Facebook before they actually got them. Bottom line: I wanted these jeans. I loved the mesh texture going down the side of the jeans. It added something different which I liked. So I finally ordered them not long after Christmas; call it a late Christmas gift to myself. And when I ordered them, Helen the owner, was nice enough to send me two other Zen Vintage styles to try out.
First up is the Zen Vintage Black Skinny with Netting Detail. I love them! They are just as good as I imagined. I ordered a 34 because of the “super skinny jegging fit” listed in the description on the Talltique website. It turns out that was a great decision. I have thick legs (my thighs especially so) and I doubt I would have been able to fit into my usual 32.
The waist of the 34 is a little big but is easily solved with a belt. No big deal. Otherwise they fit well. Not too tight or too loose. I actually wore them to work today with my new boots from Barefoot Tess and an oversized gray sweater from Target. I was very comfortable plus I looked good.
The next were the Zen Vintage Bootcut Dark Wash Jean. Can I just say that they are Ah-mazing! I was thoroughly impressed by how freakishly long they are. I actually looked these up on the Talltique website; they have a 41″ inseam! I just might have to buy them because I doubt I will ever see jeans this long anywhere else. They are so long, there is no way I can wear flats with these. They are a size 32 and they fit great.
The last pair was the Zen Vintage Light Skinny with Holes. They actually were a little tight on me (blame it on my thunder-thighs). But I like the distressed look of these jeans. They fit well in the waist and bum otherwise. These were also a 32.
Talltique’s jeans usually come in sizes 26-34. If you live in the DC Metro Area you can go visit Talltique’s showroom in Bethesda to try them out for yourself. Just call (855) 330 -TALL (8255) or email Helen@Talltique.com to make an appointment. Links to the jeans I talked about are below.
