Tall Tuesday: Flare Denim

I recently included these jeans in a Banana Republic picks roundup. Once I saw that they offered tall with a 37 inch inseam, I knew I needed to add them to my closet.

Again, these jeans have an extra long inseam, perfect for the gal topping six feet! I am 6’2” tall and I wore a three inch tall block heel with these jeans. Notice that the denim nearly grazes the ground. Barefoot, the hem pools on the floor; a heel is necessary to keep the hem intact. Fit wise, they are true to size. If anything, go down a size as they are quite soft and stretchy.

Bonus: they are available in three washes. I ordered the medium blue over the cyber sales week. The black had sold out in my size and length. My mission is to stalk a pair of 31 tall and add them to my closet.

This was one of the last Cambridge cable knit sweaters that I procured from J.Crew, circa 2014. It did not come in tall, as J.Crew has never released any sweater in the tall size range. The sweater fits a 6’2″ frame. Mind you, this was before the failure of the “slightly shrunken” style, the Tilly. (For the uninitiated, the Tilly debacle caused the 2015 slump.) Aside from the fit of the Cambridge cable knit sweater, I love the fabric (majority of the content is wool) and the colors (neutrals, brights, and jewel tones).
