Remember my epic quest for the perfect pair of jeans? Well, I discovered one more style worth noting. They’re from Anchor Blue—not a place I would normally look for large sizes and long inseams—but this style, “Iris,” fits me like a glove. (The waist is a little lower than I tend to like, but a belt solves the problem). I got the “super-skinny” cut, but the legs are closer to straight or even boot cut than drainpipe and they expertly hug every curve.
A word of caution: size up. I have a 31” waist (usually a size 12), but in the world of Anchor Blue that makes me a 15. I say, who cares what number’s on the tag, so long as you look and feel fabulous.
