I bought my first pair of Genetic Denim Mutated-Gene jeans about a month ago. (I’m including a pic – these are on clearance, so you’ll have to act fast!) So, here are my thoughts.
The length on the Mutated Twisted Seam Wide Leg Jean was great (a 35" inseam), and seemed true to size for a trouser jean – I’ve noticed that trouser jeans and wide legs often run just slightly longer than a boot cut jean. So, I can’t wear them with flip flops or flat flats, but they’re great with a shoe that has more of a heel. The blue-black denim wash is classy and slimming, and the back pockets are refreshingly simple.
The thing that surprised me the most about this jean was the stretch! I knew before buying that it was constructed from 98% cotton and 2% elastane, but when I tried them on, I swore there was a higher elastane content. I took them to my tailor and asked her to take the waist in (which is typical for me), and I joked with her that I could keep them as-is and wear them as maternity jeans (if and when the time comes). But, I was anxious to wear them now. 🙂 So now they fit like they should in the tummy, but there is still a good deal of give to the jean, so they might be perfect for those of you tall gals who are in your first trimester or have just given birth. All in all, these are comfortable, flattering wide leg jeans that you can expect to look great with a heel.
