The James Twiggy Dancer

I totally thought I had already posted about these, but I guess I was thinking about the AG Contour 360! It is interesting watching all of these high-end brands coming out with these ultra comfortable jeans that are softer than the traditional dungarees. I actually read an article the other day about the higher demand for more comfortable pants, thanks to brands like Lululemon creating the activewear-as-everyday-wear trend and pushing the denim market into the “dresswear” category. This has apparently forced a lot of denim brands to rethink their manufacturing strategies, which is why there are so many of these ridiculously stretchy and comfortable jeans on the market that left me wondering the other day, at what point do these not even constitute as “jeans” anymore? Not that I’m complaining! I love it all, really (I’m leaving any further details for another blog post).

Anyway, my stint over at Denimology has given me an opportunity to review another one of these new innovations in the denim world. James Jeans came out with another version of their much-loved Twiggy, called the Dancer. I’m wearing a pair as I type this (The Arabesque). I can’t even put into words how awesome these are (although I have to soon, I’m writing the review after all). These are like a second skin…like yoga pants! As soon as I put them on, I felt like curling up and taking a nap. Anyway, James has announced themselves that the Twiggy Dancer is the “denim crossover to yogawear the world has been waiting for.” Basically, James removed the outer seams to give it a boost in flexibility, with a slimming effect like most people look for in a good pair of jeans. Now here’s the technical part: The base denim uses “REFORM™” which promotes impressive stretch and recovery capabilities (I’m vouching for this), and the oh so soft fabric utilizes ISKO™ PJSOFT™ for the comfort and day-to-night wearability without feeling constricting. I actually sized down to a 25 (I’m a 26) and they looked TINY when they came in, but I have never seen any jean stretch out the way they did while still feeling like a pair of yoga pants. So, without prematurely giving away my entire Denimology review right here, I’ll leave this post where it is. Stay tuned for the full thing!
