Red Engine Scorcher in Moonlight Review on Denimology

My love for Red Engine continues! In the denim world, we hear a lot of claims about the softest jeans, the best-fitting jeans, the most flattering jeans, and so on…and while a lot more of the claims are true nowadays with all of the amazing denim technology there is out there, I seem to keep discovering softer, and softer, and softer jeans! Red Engine has been an incredible brand to try out, because they truly are some of the softest I’ve ever tried on. However, nothing truly prepared me for the real ability for this brand to break barriers of the silky kind before I experienced a seriously impressive version of their Scorcher skinny jean. So read on and take this one as a real treat…here is a Red Engine Scorcher in Moonlight review!

I was told about the buttery softness of these jeans before they were sent, so I was really looking forward to checking them out. When I first opened the box, I initially squealed at how BEAUTIFUL the wash is, but combined with how incredibly soft these are, I knew I had the real deal in front of me. Since I knew I had to go with a smaller size due to the sample only being available in a 25, I just crossed my mental fingers real hard that they’d fit…and they did! The silkiness of these jeans made them slide right on, and although they’ve stretched out a tiny bit, they have kept their shape over many wears. As for the mentioned wash, it’s a gorgeous vibrant blue with attractive fading and whiskering, and I really like the contrast orange stitching, both overall and in the trademark Red Engine squiggly embroidery on the back pockets. I had my doubts that these were even denim, because they feel like they are leggings actually made of silk, but they are a nice light 52% cotton, 45% Lyocell, 4% Polyester and 2% Elastane. I know I have other jeans with very similar blends and they don’t feel even close to these luxuriously soft babies! The only downside to this fabric is that they can snag easily, like tights…on my first night out with these I snagged a ring on my right leg, and my boot snagged a thread in the back of my calf, but fortunately they weren’t so bad that they stuck out like a sore thumb. These jeans are stretchy enough that I was able to kind of work the threads back into place, but I gotta be careful with sharp or snaggy items around these! Needless to say I’ll be more careful with jewelry around them…and may not wear anything that overlaps them, like tall boots, anymore!
