The Skinny on Straight Jeans


If you’ve visited our shop, you may have noticed that we’re pretty casual. Mainly because that’s how we dress every day (we DO live in the country!). But one fashion move I’m making this season is to a straight leg jean. Not that I’m giving up my skinnies just yet, but I’m not buying any more of them. We’re only offering straight legs (and some fun wide legs) in the shop for a reason. I KNOW you all have enough skinny leg jeans in your closet. I love the ease of the straight leg, and ours are fitted through the thigh, narrow (but not tight) through the calf, and slightly cropped. We have them in a bunch of different of washes, at a variety of prices, and they ALL have stretch. As usual, we’ve kept all sizes and ages in mind. Plus they’re just cool.


Wrangler’s are BACK. Their new “Heritage” collection harks back to some of their original washes, and we’ve got a fun, high-waisted crop straight dungaree in off white, pale blue (so 80’s) and medium denim ranging from $98 – $118.




The Shark Bite: offers a perfect summery fringed bottom straight leg in both dark denim and medium blue wash. We’ve found their fit very versatile; looks as good on a small 27 as it does on a 31 (moi!) or 32.  $168

The Corey: This is our top of the line jean in the highest quality stretch denim from Italian mills, but manufactured in the United States. I LOVE this jean, and you would know if you’ve seen me the last week because I finally took them off to wash them after four straight days. They have NOTHING going on: no labels, no fancy stitching, just pure comfort and classic cool.  $225

p.s. SOON, possibly as early as next week, you’ll be able to shop The E List online. We’re a bit behind because it’s been so busy, but we’re still shooting for launching next week. In the meantime, we hope you come visit us in Chester!
