I made the jump this week and actually went in to the Levi’s store. Lately is is a complete failure every time I order jeans online and I have returned every single pair. I thought I would give Levi’s a shot and I am glad that I did. 

I tried on 5 different styles and actually liked all five which absolutely never happens. I narrowed it down to two of my favourites only to find out the didn’t have the size in one (I wanted to try the size down) nor the wash I wanted in the other, so I ended up leaving empty-handed but optimistic.

When we got back home I searched online and found the pair that I was looking for and I ordered them. The style that I liked best was the Wedgie Icon which is the traditional 90s version. They also have a Wedgie straight which has a wider leg that is also good. After some deliberation and asking Tom’s opinion I ordered the second pair which is the 501 Taper.

After months of jean failures I actually bought two pairs in one day. And while I kind of cringed at the cost I know that I will get a lot of wear out of both, so I am pleased.
