Level 99 Tanya in Crawford Review on Denimology
Ok…so, I have to admit, I am really really excited about this review! I have been a fan of Level 99 ever since I caught one of their sales and decided to dive into the printed denim trend with their Janice Ultra Skinny in Moon, after I saw countless photos of celebrities wearing the Liza and Lily jeans in the Crawford wash. I figured there must be something special about this brand, because I kept hearing about them! I instantly fell in love with them once I slid on my first pair, and I’ve been hooked since, for various reasons! Black and grey jeans are closet staples, but there is something about torn black or grey jeans that are very appealing to me…and I think Level 99 does the distressed trend better than most other brands out there. So, I was stoked when I was put in touch with them to do a review, in none other than the popular celebrity favorite wash mentioned above! So without further ado, here’s a Level 99 Tanya High Rise Skinny in Crawford review!
Level 99 is an enlightened state of mind. In Chinese folklore Level 99 is nirvana, the closest state to heaven on earth.”
Launched in 2004, Level 99 was on a mission like many premium denim brands are during their inception: to create great-fitting, flattering, timeless, classic American jeans. However, the brand also incorporated a special fabric blend using Tencel, which is sustainably manufactured and harvested using waterless and chemical-free washing techniques. Tencel is basically a man-made fiber, constructed with the cellulose in wood pulp…and, it’s EXTREMELY soft! It is also known as lyocell, and it’s a form of rayon. This fiber also helps Level 99 jeans keep their incredible stretch and shape retention as well. One other reason why I love them so much is that their entire denim line is made up of beautiful, classic washes and styles, as well as colored, printed and other novelty looks! This year they even came up with two specialty washes: Forever White, a stain resistant white wash, and Forever Black, which is a black that never fades. Brilliant! I really adore their selection, and after trying them for myself and seeing how they fit and feel, I wish I could collect them all! Even those novelty styles feel so classic to me. I could go on and on about them, but lets move on…
I already own the Tanya High Rise Skinny in Bonita and the Janice Ultra Skinny in Moon, as mentioned, and all are true to size in my usual 26. The Tanya High Rise Skinny in Crawford was sent to my in my usual 26 as well, and they fit just as I expected them to. No surprises! I love how this brand is so consistent in sizing, fit and feel! There are so many incredible brands out there but Level 99 has all the loose ends tied down and I always know what to expect from them, which is so refreshing. The Crawford wash, as mentioned, is a big celebrity favorite and one of the brand’s best selling washes of all time.
